Brain Bag Victory!
Apologies if this is the wrong forum for this one, but I just had to share a positive Brain Bag experience.
Last weekend I was traveling with VERY full bags from Texas to Pennsylvania. I was heavily laden with both wedding presents and Christmas presents, so I had a lot of clothes and gear and presents to transport. When I boarded, the flight attendant tried to take away and check my Brain Bag. But after I moved the contents of the map pockets into one of the main pockets, the Brain Bag fit under the seat just fine and I made it through the flight with all of my bags intact. Since I had my wedding presents in the bag, I was VERY happy not to have to give it up. Thanks to the Tom Bihn team for making my trip far less stressful than it would have been otherwise.
Congrats on the wedding, the presents and a clever packing strategy! :)
