    Of all my Tom Bihn items, I think the Travel Tray is the most unique and maybe the most useful. It's superb, of course, for its named purpose--corralling bits and pieces during travel, both at...

    If it is the same Cordura that was used a while back for café bags, then no, it has a pronounced greenish note. Actually, I thought it was lovely, but if you don't care for green, you probably...

    I wouldn't bother with a note. Back when the radiation-based scanners were being used, my doctor gave me a nice official note saying that because of my medical exposure to radiation, I shouldn't go...

    Amy, your packing prowess is amazing! I think of myself as pretty good at packing compactly--once I went to the Rick Steves free seminars on packing light and laughed at how space and weight-wasteful...

    Turkey is such an amazing place--we spent a month there a couple of years ago and I've been dying to go back ever since. Best Roman ruins in the world, fantastic food, and traveling there is so...

    Great news, scribe! I was appalled to see that someone would try to palm off the damaged Imago in that fashion. My own steel-cork Imago has some damage to the cork facing--from a life of very hard...

    The only mileage plan that I know of that's actually gotten better in recent months is Alaska. They aren't in any alliance, but they do have a motley crew of 'partners' where you can accrue miles on...

    One Alaska policy I really appreciate is early boarding for those who will not be using the overheard but putting their carry-on under the seat instead. I did that recently with my Western Flyer!...

    Another split key ring fan here. I would never, ever carry a backpack on public transit (especially from an airport or train station!) without using one to 'lock' the zippers. I don't worry so much...

    LA Fresh (available online) makes packeted impregnated wipes (lotion, sunscreen, natural insect repellant, makeup remover, etc.) Being wipes, they don't need to go in the -1-1- baggie.

    The set looks like an amazing gizmo, but it also looks bulky and it's pretty pricy. For ten bucks, you can get a set of four plastic sports from the Eddie Bauer website...

    I love the wide mouth and easy refill potential of the Brincatti bottles. Do you happen to know what they're made of, plastic-wise?

    Back from my little two and a half day trip with the Ristretto and the Imago. In the end, I decided to skip taking my computer with me, though it did fit in my test packing. I figured for such a...

    Monkeylady, you are so right about the variability of weather in New England. I remember attending a Red Sox game in mid May when it was snowing in the morning and sleeting by first pitch. Good...
  21. My first ultra-light weekend trip--wish me luck!

    I've long been a convert to the lighter-simpler method of travel and Tom Bihn has been essential to achieving it. Like many of you, I can go for weeks with a Tristar as long as I pack carefully and...

    Lufthansa has reasonably good cabin service--efficient and no-nonsense. But I prefer not to fly them in coach. The seats in their transatlantic planes are really uncomfortable. Very thin padding,...
