Two more days....mwuhahahahaha!
Made it here before KD7DVD did!
Dropped by today, found KD7DVD getting his early holiday present. (Expect photos.) It was nice meeting him.
I am very impressed with the bags! A lot of thinking went into them. Nearly every bag is 1050 Ballistic nylon exterior and internal structure, non structural interior is a lightweight ripstop fabric (Dyneema). Heavyweight Medium density foam is used for padding and stiffening where necessary.
The line of bags is urban oriented, mostly subdued colors (and black of course).
I really like the Freudian Slip, which is basically an admin panel built around a single panel. The Back side is large enough for full Letter size sheets (possibly even a clipboard on the vertical version) The front side has all the standard admin pockets (Gusseted for room).
Pleasure was mine!
Pictures are at KD7DVD's Infamous Bags 1, 2, 3, and 4, and other EDC Topics, but in the meantime...
Enjoy this picture of some fat d00d trying on a pack at the Tom Bihn store!
What pack is that?
I'm out here somewhere.
Brain Bag. Click on the word "Infamous" up above
You need some UK branches,great gear.
I hear you. We do ship to the UK via UPS Expedited for a flat rate of $45. Flat rate = no matter how many bags you buy (ok, if you bought 20 or something like that, we'd have to talk...) shipping is still $45. The idea is that if you can find friends/family/colleagues/forum members who would like to combine orders, you can split the shipping costs between everyone, making it more economical.
Awesome: thanks for your order and the credit to EDCForums has been noted. Congrats on the new job and let us know how the bags work out.

Ordered my partner a field journal to go in her cafe bag. Ordered it over the weekend and it arrived in the UK yesterday.
The finish on this is amazing. Extra slots and pockets plus rings for hanging stuff on.

Heh, heh... I was just wondering what a EDCF day trip to the Tom Bihn factory would be like. That would be a sight...
Two new organizers. More photos/specs over here.
3D Mesh Organizer Cube
3D Dyneema/nylon Organizer Cube
WooHoo! Those 3dPacking cubes fit well in the Synapse's bottom pocket I have 2 of the poly ones and never tried it until Darcy told me it fits So now, I need more. I think I'll get the Mesh & the Dyneema
Very good idea. I would be more apt to purchase one if they had internal organization to them, but thats just me...
Can I ask where we would submit product suggestions?
EDIT: You guys got me again, just ordered a Steel Dyneema organizer wallet, orange Safety whistle and the concentrated pouch of NikWax. All credited to EDCF or course....
You might just see pouches with more internal organization in 2013..
You are welcome to post them here, email us, tweet us, post it on our Facebook page, give us a call (1-800-729-9607), however you'd like. Here's the thing: we don't really take suggestions for entirely new products. Tom designs all of our bags and what he designs is based on his own inspiration (and his to-be-designed list is already about five pages long, so even if we did take new product suggestions, they'd be made in 2020 or something like that...) Feedback on current designs, just like what you posted above -- that you'd like to see a version of the 3D Cubes with internal organization, is much appreciated. Heck, it's beyond appreciated... it's essential. Hope that makes sense.
As for EDCForums edition items: that's something we're definitely talking about. We'd want to do it right, so no rushing into it. (BTW: in January or February, I plan to send a small accessory for testing to you and others here who already have our bags, if you're up for it. Want to get some feedback on it....)
Awesome, thank you! Will make sure it gets counted.
Woohoo! Product testing!

Thanks just posted an idea to the Facebook page.... can't wait to get my paws on this latest order.
Please bring back Dyneema in Solar!!! I have the Travel Tray and Shop Bag among other things and the contrast of the liner vs contents is fantastic.
This is not to say that Wasabi is a poor choice... I like em all!!!
Oops- Double Post.
I hear you. I do think Solar will come back someday: when exactly, I don't know. I guess we'll just have to add a fifth 200d Dyneema color.
