Hello Tom Bihn Crew:
I want to recognize those on the production team that create these wonderful bags. I ordered and received a Tri-Star last week.
It is one thing to read and review a product online, but it is another to have it in hand. The materials that compose the bag are enough to differentiate it from competitors; yet, it’s the quality craftsmanship that truly sets it apart. Time and effort are exemplified in its build quality, and I am honored to carry this product with me everyday (and for years to come). You all should be very proud of your work!
In short, thank you!
Consider me a customer for life. (^.^)

With a little free time, an Aeronaut 30, an Aeronaut 45, and a camera, itsablur (a regular in our Forums) put together this awesome video comparing the two bags: Questions? Thoughts? Post them in itsablur’s “A Tale of Two Aeronauts (or my Video Review of the A30, compared to the A45)” thread.
This is what an 11-year-old TOM BIHN bag looks like. Better late than never, Boolie has posted a thorough review of his ID bag. He writes: “While I’ve been driving to work the past few years, most of my time with the bag has been spent walking or on the train. It’s about a 20…
“One thing that makes this bag [Synapse 19] stand out is its magnificently brilliant design. It is engineered so slickly and so intelligently that you can pack a hell lot more than other, much-larger backpacks. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call it a work of art.” Read the full review over at Regev’s blog.
