Innovation in Travel Accessories: Tom Bihn Laptop Keyboard Cover

Posted at: James' Europe Travel Blog By James Martin, About.com Guide to Europe "I'm not a "cheap stuff" sorta guy. When I buy a bag or travel accessory, I want to make sure the design and manufacturing folks have thought things out. I don't want the sort of industrial garbage in which innovation is measured by how much the company can save by removing features or using inferior material while maintaining the same price. Sometimes they even have the unmitigated gall to claim that the (new and improved!) hobbled product is better or safer because of it (think about that...

"This is a company and a product I highly recommend."

From the {position: relative;} blog: "I’ve had an Olive/Wasabi Small Cafe Bag from Tom Bihn for almost 8 years. I love this bag - it’s the perfect size, it looks cool, and it’s very clean-lined. One of the buckles broke yesterday. I emailed customer service about 15 minutes ago and have already gotten a response - they offered to fix it for free. But I decided to order a new one, because my old one is getting a bit frayed (and I can try a new color). This is a company and a product I highly recommend."

"Super Ego Arrives" (Pictures!)

"But quickly, from what I gather, the bag [The Super Ego] has impressive build quality, lots of room, and is not as intimidatingly huge as I feared it would be. It is noticeably bigger than the ID, much like you'd put a side-by-side comparison between a MBP 17 against a MBP 15, that type of ratio. But from an aesthetic point of view, the bag's size shouldn't be feared at all, I am only 5' 9" (albeit on the heavy build side), and the bag doesn't look disproportionate." Read lpotr4's entire review (with more pictures!) in the TOM BIHN Forums....

TOM BIHN Prototype "Checkpoint Friendly" Bag: Success!

Recently, Tom and Darcy flew to a select U.S. airport to consult with TSA staff, testing Tom's prototype of a new checkpoint friendly briefcase. Quoting the TSA: "One project we're currently working on that has been widely discussed on the Internet and several blogs is a "checkpoint friendly" laptop bag. This bag would allow our officers a clear, unobstructed view of the laptop and allow passengers to keep the laptop in the bag during screening." At the airport, we were given exclusive access to an x-ray machine and conveyor for the testing process. We tested Tom's prototype briefcase in every...

Geek chick electrical engineer packs light with the Aeronaut

"After tons of research I settled on the Tom Bihn Aeronaut bag." ...... "I was stunned to discover that even with 2 pairs of shoes, 2 skirts, 2 dresses, 2 pairs of pants, 4 shirts, 10 pairs of underwear, 4 pairs of socks, pajamas, my toiletries (not insubstantial), an iGo charger, 3 guidebooks, and all of my other stuff placed in it, I had room to spare. Before succumbing to temptation and packing some of the items I had taken out of my pile as unnecessary (bathing suit, etc.), I decided to weigh the bag. First I stepped on the...
