My package is in Roseburg, Or. But i will not get it til Thursday, so I should calm down!
Got to save up some money first. I don't think you are beta testing them anymore! haha
I just did a 5-minute test pack in the Tri-Star for a 3-4 day business trip, and I honestly have to say I'm amazed at how much this bag holds! It was like a speed pack just to prove it to myself and show my wife... Basically, in just a few minutes without batting an eye, I packed: 1 jeans, 2 chinos, 3 polos, t-shirt, workout shorts, 4 underwear, 2 undershirts, 4 socks, sandals, toiletries bag, 3-1-1 zip-lock bag, water bottle, and my laptop in a neoprene sleeve. BTW, the packing cubes were definitely money well spent!
All I can say is....WOW!!! It's very comfortable with the absolute strap (haven't tried the backpack straps yet). Anyway, more detail to come later (in a different thread)...
I'm blaming JLE - the plane must be waiting for her order.....
FlightAware > Louisville Intl Airport (Louisville, KY) KSDF / SDF Flight Tracker
Others can do the same for other countries. :)
For U.S people, who choose Air delivery, check Seattle airport and your destination airport, if you live in a big city or the closest international airport, if you live in a small one.
Trouble is that they tricked me - it went on UPS32 to Honolulu first before hoping aboard UPS34 from there to Sydney.
Estimated arrived 3pm this afternoon - then for the slow crawl through customs.....
Of course while my TB Bag is winging its way to me the EC Folder ordered from an on-line Australian supplier is, well, not in stock at the moment and unlikely to reach me until 30 April or a little later! So typical of Aussie e-tailers Grrrrrr
Just received an email that my order shipped! Looking forward to a ID (black,steel, wasabi), various packing cubes for our aeronauts including a pcsb for my wife and some key straps. Oh, and a nook pouch! Thanks also to Brian @ TB for a last minute addition to the order.
All this stuff, especially the cubes, would have made our 6 day business trip to the mainland (returned on monday) alot more convenient. Oh well. Looking forward to the next time. Really looking forward to the order arriving!!!
Email says I have a TB package waiting at home. que "Anticipation" playing in my head.
IT IS HERE!
After my disparaging remarks about the likely delays due to Australian Customs the in-line tracking showed the paperwork being done yesterday before the package had even arrived. With an Arrival Scan at 15:06, an Import Scan at 17:50 and a Departure Scan from Botany in Sydney at 23:29 I was resigned to another weekend BTB (that is Before Tom Bihn).
Returning to the office after a nice catch up coffee with my wife unexpectedly I came across this:
WOW, impressive delivery speed. Let's open it up and check that it is mine...
This looks like the goods....
Yep, it has arrived! Tri-Star in Black/Iberian with Absolute Strap and a couple of packing cubes
Iberian in all its glory!
Now I can get rid of this heavy old thing. It served me well but I'm looking forward to my next trip with the TB.
Note: EC Folders nowhere to be seen from Aussie e-tailer!
