    Leftover materials? I met a guy 25 years ago that built his garment empire on 'scraps' of fabric....

    Actually crazy colours are not a bad idea. Everything on the market is.... black. How distinct is that? Given that the inserts are inside a bag, different colours would help differentiate between the lens, flashes, filters, blah, blah, blah...

    More significantly, if Tom can actually use factory floor scraps to make them & offer them at a lower price, we can all then promote them as Tom's Green Up-cycled Camera inserts.
    United Colors of Tom Bihn? Why not?!

    Very exciting! I do hope Tom's planning on making one for the Checkpoint Flyer as well! I'll be happy to be a guinea pig and test one anytime! :)

    Tom's brother Dan reports that the insert is working beautifully. I imagine that we'll have an insert for just about every bag!

    Interesting. I already have the Brain Bag so that might be something I have to look at for trips.

    You're on the right track! Go Tom!

    Darcy,

    That insert looks great. Bright colors inside will definitely help us find all those black cameras, lens, well just about all photo gear is black.

    Assume the dividers will be moveable so they can be reconfigured for various gear. Also hope the bottom's padded since bags like the ID aren't. Looks like you'll have a vertical and horizontal version, ala the soft cell and brain cell.

    Very nice indeed!

    I have some concerns, it looks big and it has no zipper on top.

    Please keep up posted on Tom's brother's comments on using this product.

    If he could post here it would be great!

    Yes and yes! The dividers are movable, and the bottom is padded.

    O Joy (and o-rings)

    Terrific Darcy!

    Also, another tweak: If photo-bag insert had two o-rings like the new Shop Bag...then we could use our TB organizer pouches to hold memory cards and all the little bits and pieces that go with cameras and lens.
