Tom Bihn Daylight Backpack Review

Post Image

Gear Diary: Setting Up the Tom Bihn Guide’s Pack for Laptop Carry

Post Image

In our review of the Tom Bihn Guide’s Pack, I mentioned it’s not really set up to accommodate a laptop out of the box.  You can carry a Cache or Vertical Brain Cell loose in the main compartment but you can do that with any pack.  This is why the Guide’s Pack isn’t listed specifically […]

Tom Bihn Guide’s Pack Review

Post Image

I’ve always loved the style of the vintage mountaineering packs but I’m not willing to sacrifice the comfort or organization that my other packs provide in order to carry one on a regular basis.  They’re cool but not THAT cool.  Fortunately, seeking inspiration, some gear manufacturers have been delving into the past to create modern […]

On a recent three day weekend trip to Fort Lauderdale, I decided to only take one bag on the airplane – a prototype which I’m field testing.  Yeah, don’t ask.  I can’t divulge any details until later in the year.  😉  I normally take a day pack in addition to my carry-on when I travel […]

Tom Bihn Synapse 25 Backpack Review

Post Image

The new Tom Bihn Synapse 25 is the larger 25 liter/1526 cubic inch version of the Synapse (now called Synapse 19).  For those familiar with the original pack, the Synapse 25 keeps much of the original design.  The multiple pockets, which don’t cannibalize space from the main compartment, are still there. So is the 1000D […]
