    Great to see Tom and the spaces. Could that guy have interrupted Tom much more?

    Not to chime on the bash but he was rude. Delete and start over! It was very nice to see the owner discuss his bags. This happens on Red Oxx and SF Bags site and would be a great idea for TB site as well.

    Really!

    It was a heavily edited video. I'll bet they cut out a lot more interruptions than we ended up seeing.

    I enjoyed the video, even with the "interesting" editing. I especially enjoyed seeing Tom Bihn talking about the Tri-Star and the Aeronaut, since I am debating those two bags (and the Indigo and Crimson colors). I really don't need a new travel bag, but - Wow! that Indigo is gorgeous!

    The editing and interruptions were not what I was expecting, but it was good to see Tom and the products.

    This is like a "teaser" clip for a documentary about Tom Bihn and the bags, the factory, the quality workmanship etc. Untill we can get factory tours in person - I wouldn't mind sitting down for a lengthy documentary showing all the bags...but having Tom et al make the documentary. Or Maverick. Someone who is interested in it as an overall product not jsut for themselves.

    Anyway, I thought Tom was very gracious and polite. I did get the impression that the interviewer, Scott, was not really interested in the answers, more the fact that "he" was asking a question. Maybe that was a byproduct of the editing, or that it seemed Tom wasn't miked as well as Scott was. Either way, it was lovely to see Tom and the bags.

    The crimson Tri-Star and Indigo Aeronaut looked fantastic, to the point where I even considered going against my usual black or steel choices!

    Cheers!

    Let's face it, its isn't up to the standard we expect, but presumably Mav was busy elsewhere!
