    My Tom Bihn bags are here!

    I had the package shipped to my office and I could barely wait till I got home to open it, but it was worth the wait - they're beautiful! I was so excited that I took a picture of everything. I got the Tri-star, the Olive/Wasabi Medium Cafe Bag, a medium and large Steel Packing Cube, Clear Quarter Packing Cube (Solar), 2 Clear Organizer Pouches, a Cordura Pouch, a couple of key straps, and a Strapeez pack. And of course, the Absolute Shoulder Strap and the Ultrasuede Wrap (sigh).

    Now I can't wait to start pre-packing everything - my first trip is 2 weeks away! I'll be back with more photos during the packing process!

    One quick question - I know the clips for the Brain Cell are removable but I'm finding it difficult to remove them. Is there a trick to it? And if I decide to get a Brain Cell later for my Mac, can I put them back on?

    Hi Mardee,

    I love the variety of colors you chose - they look great together.

    This video by maverick might help you with the Annex clips. Basically, squeeze them together at the top where there are the little ridged indentations for your fingers and pull the clip open towards you, resulting in a sideways V shape. Then wiggle the back of the clip out of the webbing strip - you can put them back on later by doing the reverse.

    Nice! Have fun with them. My wife was just making fun of me for the amount of time I spend trying to figure out how to fit more and more stuff into my Aeronaut. And this is on a driving trip!

    For me driving trips are a chance to take as much as my Tom Bihn bags as I possibly can.

    If I ever win a trip on one of those small jets, you can bet that I will get the whole travel bag assortment in Indigo. And take them all with me!

    @ Where4Art:

    Thank you for the colorful photo! Don't be shy; be sure to post another of you wearing your new wares while traveling. I would also like to see what use you get out of the Clear Quarter Packing Cube; I've been thinking about getting one. (Solar makes it really stand out BTW.)

    Your photo reminded me that I misplaced my package of Strapeez, which I just recovered. So thank you for that as well.

    I have two. Currently one is holding all of the cords and paraphernalia for my camcorder and the other all of the cords and chargers required for my family vacations. I used to use one as a first aid kit and a liquids holder.

    That looks like a good start to another TB addiction. Since I'm addicted I can say that. I'd be super happy to get a big order like that. Enjoy!

    Don't worry - I'll be back with pictures after I've spent an hour (or 2 or 12) packing and repacking everything for my trip next week.
