    Comparison Chart!

    Hello all,
    I have knocked together an Excel and Open Office spreadsheet of all the TB bags I could find. I was looking at all the questions about size and volume, so this should make it easier to sort and find out what bag is best for you (or all of them).
    Take a look and post anything you would like to add and change, thanks.

    thax

    Edit:
    I added a view link to google docs for those that don't want to edit anything.

    Hahaha, it goes with Ruck's Sack. Fixed the typo, nice catch. Guess I was looking at the numbers more :-)

    Thanks. This is so cool. Can it be updated when the new bags are released?

    Thanks all for the kind words!

    I updated with the Checkpoint Flyer and Shop Bag. Don't have the hard dimensions for the Synapse yet, but when that pre-order page comes up I will update it.

    A separate forum category for size comparison tools

    I'll add this suggestion to Darcy's Your Wish List for these forums thread, but we need to put tools like thax's spreadsheet somewhere easy to find -- either stickied or in a separate group with other tools for size comparisons. These questions come up a lot in the forums. Sometimes they are specifically addressed in threads that compare specific bags like the Empire Builder and the Zephyr as in the first and second posts by Zasky. Sometimes we point to threads like the Pictures of Multiple Bags Together thread. Sometimes we point to movies that show different bags together. And somebody once posted about using http://www.sizeasy.com for a 3-d visualization comparison of products by size. Here are some examples of such comparisons for various Tom Bihn bags (you can search for others at that site or construct your own):


    These kinds of tools should be together in one place.

    I second Moriond's suggestion. That site for size comparisons is very cool.

    Imagine my surprise to see this dug up! I looked at this in my Google doc's a few months ago and told myself I should update it. Man the list of bags has grown, Good job Scott. Having an online chart with the ability to sort by weight or volume would be pretty cool.
