Description

Your pens, papers, tablet, notebooks, pens, and geegaws of all kinds go in the Freudian Slip. And the Freudian Slip goes inside of your backpack.

Is there such a thing as being too organized? We don't think so. The Freudian Slip is an organizational insert designed to add additional pockets and storage to your bag.

Brain Bag Freudian Slip
12 organizational pockets, of which there are: four folder pockets (folders/papers fit horizontally or vertically), two mesh pockets for bulky items, an open-top pocket for small electronics or a notebook, three pen slots, and a business card slot.

Synapse 19/Synik 22 Freudian Slip
10 organizational pockets, of which there are: two folder pockets (folders/papers fit vertically), three open-top pockets for small electronics or a notebook, two mesh pockets for bulky items, two pen slots, and a business card slot.
Note: the Synapse 19/Synik 22 Freudian Slip also fits in the Daylight Backpack.

Synapse 25/Synik 30 Freudian Slip
15 organizational pockets, of which there are: two folder pockets (folders/papers fit horizontally or vertically), four open-top pockets for small electronics or a notebook, two mesh pockets for bulky items, two large zippered pockets, four pen slots, and a business card slot.
Note: the Synapse 25/Synik 30 Freudian Slip also fits in the Daylight Backpack.

Tri-Star/Empire Builder/Western Flyer Freudian Slip
Adds eleven pockets of organization — four pen/pencil pockets, two flat zippered pockets, two large open top pockets for file folders, two wallet or phone sized pockets and one credit card sized pocket.

The Maker’s / Swift Freudian Slip
Fits (you guessed it) in both the Maker’s Bag and the Swift. It adds five additional pockets of organization — three zippered pockets on one side and two large open top pockets on the other. This is also the size of Freudian Slip that you'll want for your Maker's Bag or Pilot

Small Cafe Bag Freudian Slip
Eight organizational pockets. One side has a horizontal zippered pocket that can fit a phone lengthwise, as well as pockets that can fit either four pens or two pens and a flashlight, knife, or multi-tool. There’s also a pocket that can fit a phone or similar object vertically. The other side has a diagonal mesh pocket and behind that, a zippered pocket. Both can fit an iPad mini/7″ tablet, either by itself or in a Cache.

Medium Cafe Bag Freudian Slip
Eleven organizational pockets. One side has a zippered pocket and two open-top pockets, one in expandable mesh; magazines, an iPad or iPad Air, papers or notebooks fit great in those pockets (they’re a bit small for file folders). The other side has two open-top mesh pockets that can fit bulky stuff: snacks, power supplies, cords, a hard drive. Above the mesh pockets are four pen slots and one multi-tool/knife/flashlight pocket; there’s also a pocket for a phone, big or small.

Large Cafe Bag Freudian Slip
Eleven organizational pockets. One side has two open-top pockets for papers/file folders/magazines (folders fit portrait/vertically) and behind that, a zippered pocket that spans the width of the slip. These pockets also fit a full-size iPad or iPad Air. The other side has two open-top mesh pockets (which are great for power supplies, books, binoculars or other bulky stuff), four pen pockets, and two medium pockets for notebooks/phones.

The Freudian Slip is made with an exterior of 210 High Tenacity Ballistic nylon. A medium density cross-link polyethylene foam helps it retain its shape over the many years you'll use it.

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.

    Great Organizer, but can be a little bulky

    If you're looking to store more documents and various items this does exactly that. I would recommend sizing down because it is pretty bulky if you get the exact size of your bag. I have a synik 30 and I got the one that's sized for that bag. And I have more organization space that I know what to do with.

    Love the organization; wish it was a little smaller

    Great for organizing all the things that go in a bag so that one can find everything easily. However, a Freudian Slip takes up almost all of the room in the main compartment of a bag, so there's little room to add a more bulky item like a jacket or a water bottle. I've actually been using the small café bag Freudian Slip in a medium café bag, just so that I have some room around the edges. The Freudian Slip that's meant for the small café bag takes up ALL the room in the small café bag and makes me less likely to use the small café bag (sadly). I've also been using the small Freudian Slip in the main compartment of my Paradigm backpack (PLO) and in that bag I can put a couple of bulkier items (makeup bag; blood test kit) underneath the Freudian Slip since the Slip is not as deep as the bag - precisely because the Slip is not MADE for that bag. I guess, bottom line, my recommendation is to design the Freudian Slips to not take up all the space in the bag for which they are designed. Or, from the consumer end, buy a Freudian Slip that is one size smaller than you're supposed to (but, unfortunately, there is no Freudian Slip sized smaller than for the small café bag).

    Nice addition

    Adds some additional organization. When my backpack is being used for my work I use it. When it is not I can leave it behind.

    almost good

    the design of the pockets is nice, however, the weight of putting a tablet or laptop in one of the pockets causes the bottom of organizer to fold over on its self. The foam insert that is supposed to give structure is too weak to hold up the weight of anything substantial. Even if the big pockets are empty and theres just pencils and such in the small pockets, the movement of walking around with the bag results in the bottom folding over
