Finally found a reason to buy another Tom Bihn Bag!
It’s been a couple of years since I’ve ordered a Tom Bihn bag. Actually I think my last order was two medium, and one small Café Bag’s for my wife, mother, and daughter; as well as a Shop Bag for me I use it often when I take my motorcycle shopping (it fits in my pannier perfectly – I turn [it] inside out to put the side pockets on the outside. I get more stuff in it that way and can still fill up the side pocket – consider that design change it works!).
I love my SuperEgo. I haven’t found a need to get any other laptop bag.
Anyway I’ve found a reason to order another TB bag. My daughter’s been taking knitting lessons at the local library. There’s a clutch of grandmothers that teach this skill to the younger woman of our community (who are interested). My daughter picked it up rather quickly and very well. She’s working on a sweater and hat for me! Anyway, the knitting bag she brought started falling apart, and she was complaining that, although it was a knitting bag, it didn’t fit her needs quite right. So, Ding! I had an idea. I remembered the Swift, so I logged onto TB and looked at the swift. I picked Crimson and Hemp for her (Crimson and grey are her college colors). I ordered them with two extra yarn sacs (Ultraviolet, Crimson), with an extra knitting needle pouch. Needless to say they were a hit! She switched bags immediately, and is the envy of her knitting group. That bag, as are all Tom Bihn bags, is perfect for its intended purpose.
Now that I have the TB bug again, I’m going to order a Large Café bag for my wife (she’s out grown the Medium I purchased for her two years ago, and a Buzz for one of the IT guys that works for me. He loves the sling type bags for his laptop, and the Targus he brought for himself fell apart. Sadly I don’t need another bag for myself. The SE with Brain Cell I purchased 4 years ago is too good. The only change I made was purchasing a new 2S Brain Cell to fit my new 15” Lenovo W520 Laptop. The combo is the best $200 I ever spent.
Humm, maybe my mom could use Swift in Cork or all Hemp (just to be different) as a shopping bag. Come to think of it I have a real nice neighbor who walk his dog and is very responsible with his pet’s poop. I bet he’d appreciate a Citizen Canine.
Oh, boy I'm in trouble now.
