TOM BIHN Black Ballistic Nylon Brain Bag

Our next restock is Wednesday 4/6 at 7:00am Pacific Time. The following items will be restocked:

 

We also have a quick update about our 525d Ballstic Nylon that we want to share with you all!

We’ll begin a transition from our 525d ballistic nylon to 630d ballistic nylon over the coming months. They’re virtually the same fabrics — both high-tenacity yarns — and thus are pretty much indistinguishable from each other. 630d will offer us a continuously available supply (the base yarns will continue to be stocked by our mill) at an ever-so-slightly increased cost.

Because we know you care about details as much as we do, we’ll specify on product pages which bags are 525d and which are 630d. Note that, once the tag has been removed from a bag and it’s out in the world being used, you won’t be able to tell if it’s 525d or 630d: the two fabrics are that similar.

Have questions? Ask in the comments (you'll be notified via email when we respond!)

The lining may be in Halcyon, my question was making the Brain Bag (the hold thing , not just the lining) in Halcyon!!

Ah, I misread the initial comment! :) We’re not in the position with our 400d Halcyon to continue offering bags in the fabric. We had shared this in our January updates blog, our supplier’s 400d Halcyon mill had shut down, and while we’ve been on the look for solutions, we haven’t found a promising replacement yet.

Any thoughts for making the Brain Bag in Halcyon???

TOM BIHN replied:
Thanks for the suggestion! At an internal meeting recently, we brought up the point that the lining of the Brain Bag has only ever been 210 Ballistic, and so far everyone has seemed quite happy with the interior. Maybe we will consider some other options for future batches of the Brain Bag!

Any news on the Synapse 25 frame sheets?

TOM BIHN replied:
Hi Seth! Thanks for coming by to ask a question. We’ve been having some issues getting a specific part needed to make the frame, so we don’t yet have a timeline for when they’ll be available next.

They just went out of stock recently so probably another month or so before they’re back!

Can’t wait for the new Synik 19 colors currently under production. Any idea when they will be available?
Thanks!

Synik 22 or Synapse 19? No Synik 19 🙃
