Innovation in Travel Accessories: Tom Bihn Laptop Keyboard Cover

“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 6 inch cord on your toaster, for example).

So when a small company appears on my radar claiming real innovation, I’m happy to look into it and share.”

“This is a company and a product I highly recommend.”

position: relative: Tom Bihn’s bags

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.”
