Hats knitted by the TOM BIHN Ravelry group for the TOM BIHN Crew

The Hats Knitted for the TOM BIHN Crew

Every year, the TOM BIHN Ravelry group knits wearable gifts for our crew. Some years the wearables have been scarves or gloves, and this year it was hats. We know a thing or two about materials and quality craftsmanship, and we're in awe of what the group makes for us. See for yourself below; we've photographed each and every hat that was sent to us. From all of us here at TOM BIHN to the TB Ravelry Group: thank you! The wearables you make for us are a big part of our annual holiday party, and everyone looks forward to...

The Not Very Successful Holiday Photo Shoot

The Not Very Successful Holiday Photo Shoot

We thought it'd be fun to get a photo of Ichiro and Fiona (two of the dogs on staff here at TOM BIHN) wearing festive holiday antlers while lounging on a Camp Mat, but they had a different idea...

Just a few of the great photos you shared with us last week (thank you!)   “I spent the day at the hospital yesterday because my daughter was having surgery. She’s now home and comfortably resting. I switched all of my things out of my Pop Tote and into my Luminary because I suspected I would need to be hands free as much as possible. I was right, too. I had to carry my daughter’s things and help her maneuver to the wheel chair and into the vehicle. I never cease to be amazed at how much this little bag...

Here are a few of the photos you've shared with us last week! Thanks!   “Working on YingYang Kitty socks with the kitty.” Photo by @whiskey__chick   “First snow of Autumn 2017 on my hill. Captured during the "sunrise" walk at Pleasant Pine Plantation. It started snowing immediately after I got up. I usually carry my Tom Bihn "Brain Bag" backpack when I go on these early morning hikes. I bought this pack off of eBay several weeks ago. Bihn, based in Seattle, produces high-quality, high-durability, thoughtfully designed premium luggage.” Photo by @walt.atwood   “I probably could have fit a...

“Here’s my fully packed A30 on the Shinkansen between Kanazawa and Karuizawa. It fits very neatly in the luggage rack.” Posted in the forums by Denises   “My Luminary arrived just in time for the Bitter and Twisted beer festival in the old Maitland Gaol, with a photo opportunity at the new Newcastle Interchange train station. The slim profile of the bag is great for getting around festivals and was the perfect size for the day. The only problem I have with the Luminary is that I now want it in 20L.” Posted in the forums by gregcswanson   “I...

A South Island Sojourn

A South Island Sojourn

Jenny and Joe are the photographers behind some of the (awesome) photos of our bags. We asked them to write about a trip they took to New Zealand in a guest post for our blog. - Darcy The gentle lapping of the waves was lulling me to sleep. Joe was outside, manning a camera that was pointed out towards the water, shutter wide open, capturing a nighttime scene of Elaine Bay in the Marlborough Sounds of New Zealand’s south island. The stars twinkled brightly and left arcs of light as proof of their existence inside the camera. The International Space...

Part Two: Jenn's Road Trip on Highway 1

Be sure to read Part One of Jenn's trip report, which details how and what she packed. After finding out my husband would be in southern California for work, we decided to take advantage of having a paid flight and make it our vacation for the year. We did a cross-country road trip to the Pacific Northwest last year and fell in love with the Pacific Coast, so driving Highway 1 seemed like the best way to take in as much as possible in our 10 days. Normally, I would have planned our stops better but some unforeseen house problems at home (that...

Jenn's Road Trip With The Aeronaut 45 Travel Bag Packing List | TOM BIHN

Part One: How Jenn Packed For Her Road Trip

Light packing has always been a bit of a stretch or wishful thinking for me. I used to lean towards a "more = better prepared" philosophy instead of "planning = better prepared." However, in the last couple of years we’ve begun to pare down our belongings and expenses and concentrate on things that really make us happy. The freedom to travel and experience as much as we can started to make its way up our priority list. With a 10-day trip up Highway 1 on the horizon, I knew I wanted an Aeronaut, but I was extremely unsure which of the two sizes...
