One Woman’s Minimalist / Ultralight Packing List

One Woman’s Minimalist / Ultralight Packing List

Excerpt from One Woman’s Minimalist / Ultralight Packing List by Allison Levine: While I haven’t quite given up processed foods yet, I had to apply my new-found minimalism to travel. Suitcases are not my friend. I don’t have the apparent muscle strength required to carry them, and dragging anything with wheels up a flight of stairs is my idea of hell. On the other hand, backpacks can be painful too — especially when they’re not suited to your size, or over-packed. Sara and I took a backpack each to Comic-Con 2011. We wanted to be able to jump off the...

Brian Stowell's updated packing list

Brian Stowell's updated On Tour packing list

"I mentioned in an old thread of mine that I would post an updated packing list. It's amazing how much progess I've made in the last two years. I leave in a few hours for a 17 day trip, traveling all over the East Coast/Mid-Atlantic area of the US, selling merch for a band. I'm planning for very nice spring weather, 60s-70s, maybe some rain. But I work indoors mostly." Read the full thread in the TOM BIHN Forums for more of Brian's packing lists. See also: Brian's previous On Tour packing list.

My Tri-Star Review (with comparisons to the Brain Bag)

conejo23: My Tri-Star review (with comparisons to the Brain Bag)

"I'll cut to the chase and then fill in some details, along with pictures. The Tri-Star is an incredible bag. The design is as impressive as the reviews I poured through indicated it was. This is a typical Tom Bihn bag so I don't need to go into excessive detail here, you all know the materials, construction, finishing, it's all first rate. Very, very impressive." Read the full review by conejo23 -- with many great photos -- in the TOM BIHN Forums.

TOM BIHN Brain Bag with three laptops and a DSLR

Brain Bag packed with three laptops and a DSLR

Posted by jmcrist in the TOM BIHN Forums. My Brain Bag was broken in on my last flight from Houston to New Delhi, with a layover in Frankfurt. I flew Lufthansa, and was a little nervous due to the stricter limits of European airlines. Needless to say from the pictures below... that didn't keep me from overpacking! That baby weighed 35.6 lbs - over half the weight of one piece of checked baggage - and the Lufthansa crew didn't bat an eye. Okay, now here's all the stuff I managed to fit in it: Macbook Pro 13" inside of a...
