snopes.com: Tom Bihn Hidden Message Label
some are going as far as not buying anymore tom bihn products after reading the article :
Bihn*"French"*LAbel - OBOW Light Travel Forum - One-bag, carry-on, light travel tips, techniques, and gear
more over here : Need a small companion bag for my Sky Train - Page 2 - FlyerTalk Forums
i think that it's all very funny and the label and its content has nothing to do with the bags themselves. freedom of speech indeed.
i know that this is old news to the tom bihn crew but it was new to me and maybe to other forum members as well. interesting read to say the least.
