    Cell phone holder options?

    Greetings all...I'm a new Bihnian.

    I recently got the Super Ego (kiwi/black) with the Brain Box (steel/black) to tote around my 17" MacBook Pro and all of its accessories. I switched over after reading many reviews about the quality of Bihn bags for the low cost + I feel great about buying something made in Seattle. One thing I miss from my last bag (a Timbuk2) is a cell phone pouch to put on the strap...any suggestions? Is there one I missed here?

    Thanks in advance...!

    Welcome to the club pulaski. Tom Bihn doesn't have a cell phone pouch to put on the outside strap, however, you could try using a Small Padded Organizer pouch. Then attach that to the d-ring on the inside front flap.
    Using a: Super Ego (Black, Steel, Wasabi) with seat belt strip (Wasabi), and alternate reflective Strip. Black BrainCell, Wasabi Snake Charmer, Cork Small Organizer Pouch, and Olive green medium organizer pouch.

    Mike:


    Thanks for the welcome!

    While I do like the little pouches, I really miss having the phone on my strap essentially right over my left shirt pocket so I can grab it at a moment's notice. Timbuk2 makes them, but, I don't want a big honking Timbuk2 logo to be on my new sweet Bihn bag...

    which strap arrangement did you go with, because I found that with the Q-AM strap, that you can place the cell in the zip pocketright behind your strong side carry, and it works pretty well...
    not sure how this would work with an absolute or a standard strap

    Thanks!

    I use a Timbuk2 <a href="http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/accessories/cell-phone-holder">cell phone holder</a> with my ID bag. It will attach directly to the shoulder strap, but I find it more convenient to attach it to the key/organizer lanyard.

    (Thanks to whoever at Tom Bihn put an extra lanyard in my most recent order, by the way! I love those things.)

    I like the built-in cell phone/iPod holder in the Buzz strap, too, but I've found it a little difficult to pry my small cell phone out of there in a hurry. I wound up tacking a bit of ribbon to the back of the pocket. I use it like a battery pop-up ribbon: I keep it looped under the phone, and I can pop the phone out in a hurry by pulling on the end. (I realize this is a bit obsessive, but it's no fun fumbling for a ringing phone during a meeting.)
