    Those who pre-order will get their bags first, regardless if the pre-order is for pick-up in Seattle store or shipping out of state. :)

    This is great. I don't know how I missed this discussion. The main thing missing for me with the original one was the o ring. There are too many things here that I want to order but this and the new light bag are at the top of my list- along with the synapse.
    I have ended up using the original convertible bag in my swift for additional knitting supplies. This would be a great addition to my aeronaut.
    (I'd still like an o ring added to the original one at some point.)

    Glad you think so! It was a great bag to use on my trip to Alaska. Can't imagine not having one now!

    OK, just bought one! Now, since I've never pre-ordered (just hopped a bus and shopped in person) I guess I'll just wait for that email telling me to get in pronto!

    And now for the new Dyneema tote... ah, shopping at and with Tom Bihn is such fun. Even more fun than that dratted Larabar addiction this forum has created!

    Indeed. I'd never heard of them before seeing them in people's "what I packed" pictures linked here, and only bought them to deplete the balance on a school-scrip debit account, but they're so good I now want them even paying with "real money."

    this is perfect!

    i've packed a large cafe bag inside of my aeronaut for past trips, and this is Convertible Packing Cube/Backpack is exactly what i need as a bag at my destination!

    i'm pre-ordering one and taking it with me for my trip to india this october. i'll carry it inside my aeronaut and then use it while i am in india.

    i'll also be stopping in paris for the day on my way back from india - i have an 11 hour layover, so i'll use that time to go into the city. if all goes well, i will actually check in my aeronaut for the return trip and just carry this as my backpack. hopefully, it will all go well - i haven't checked in a bag for my india trips since i got the aeronaut, and have loved being able to walk right past baggage claim and proceed to customs upon my arrival :).

    what will i be carrying? no laptop - this is a vacation! in addition to clothing, bathroom articles and travel documents, i will have a camera, extra battery, battery charger, iphone and charger, large moleskine notebook, a pen and a book to read.
