I would love to see a two compartment packable daypack (like a Herschel daypack) made of dyneema with lockable zips and compressed foam straps to use for ultralight traveling. That would be perfect for me.

Also maybe some additional loops like used for the waist belt to be used to run some shock cord through to hold items such as jackets on the outside when needed or it can be removed and out of the way when not needed, similar to how it is on the smart alec.
And maybe an external bottle holder or two on the outside. I know TB designs is typically an internal bottle holder but it would be nice to have external ones as well. Quicker access or to place something like an umbrella that's wet that you don't want to place inside the bag. Or to make the current water bottle more separate from the rest of the pack. Meaning replacing the lining in the bottle compartment all dyneema and removing the holes in the corners, and adding a grommet just in case.
^ I guess you'll have to buy that used. I haven't even seen any refurbs on the Apple site in quite a while.
Tom Bihn Wish List - Part II: Would love to see
- Dopp kits or hanging toiletry (Tom Bihn-style)
- Packing envelope / Packing sacs
- A different type of shop bag
- The Tom Bihn Everyday Tote
- The Tom Bihn Beach Tote (what dyneema was made for!)
- Seasonal items (something that is made only for a limited time)
Website improvements I would love to see:
- Color selection (go to Landsend.com to see how they do it). You can switch color on items without changing the page.
@PaulT00 I hope you got your order in, if you wanted this.
I've had my Brain Bag for over 7 years now, best backpack I've ever owned, use it daily to take my stuff around.
I'd like to see O-rings in the lower 2 front pockets.
I'd also like to see some sort of of insulated Cube so I can take my lunch with me.
Um...we can't edit our posts? Curiouser and curioser. ..
Add on to my Synapse 28 and/or BB 2K:
* a bigger synapse likely will need a compression strap. I think the side pockets could use more wiggle room & slightly widen main body pocket to retrofit brain cells or even a future smaller IO ;-)
*for BB 2K, a slimmer profile which still allows for brain cell & IO's & in keeping with TB design...where are the key strap loops for front pockets? Finally, I'd give up secondary/divided front pocket in lieu of one main compartment and a built in area for water bottle holder like the Synapse.
Meanwhile...the S25 and BB are both amazing bags. The most satisfaction I've ever experienced in my lifetime of packs. My S25 would be a 9.5 if it was Cordura ;-)

Smart Alec upper modular pocket.....with removable gatekeepers and rings to attach a shoulder strap or wrist strap a la SE. Is there any way the single gatekeepers would work...maybe with a little bigger loops along the pocket? This could be a perfect travel combination of backpack and going out small purse but I'd rather leave the clips attached to the pack and have a dressier looking purse.
Make it in purple or black with a UV lining and the ladies will go crazy for it!!!! At least this one would!
I agree with you about the O-Rings. I hope future Brain Bags have O-Rings in the front pockets. For your existing BB, I got some O-rings from TB and retrofitted them into the front pockets:
An insulated cube for lunch would be great - thin for me but insulated. The smallest I have found is still 3.5-4" wide. Something 2.5-3" thick would be great. Maybe they could trim a Brain Cell frame and put insulation instead of the stiffener and padding.
Thought of another thing to add. :)
I recently got the clear organizer wallet, and while it's nearly perfect for what I need, it's just slightly too short. It holds everything fine, but between the Tom Bihn label and the fabric around the zipper, you just can't quite get a good enough view of my bus pass, so I end up removing it to show the driver, which defeats the entire purpose of getting this. (The pass I get is flimsy and I wanted something with a clear front I could keep it in.)
Well, Ive been thinking.....orange, tangerine or cantelope colored dyneema on anything would send me over the moon.
