Zero baggage - even better than traveling light?

There's a new way of travelling afoot. The idea is ZERO baggage. That is, renting your clothes when you get to your destination instead of taking them with you.

Interesting idea...

This could probably work really well for people who have "normal" body shapes and "normal" clothes tastes. But for those who don't...

But its an idea worth thinking about. I don't know that its something I would do, but I'm sure there'd be a market for it somewhere.

Tom Bihn Synapse coming soon - we hope...

Hello! Yes, we're still here!

I have been following the progress of Tom Bihn's backpack design (the Synapse) for quite some while now. It seems to be their longest design-time project ever, and one hopes that means it will be an absolute stunner which reinvents the backpack and challenges normal backpack design.

That's the thing I really appreciate about Tom Bihn - he's an original thinker. A real designer.

Looking forward to seeing the release of the Synapse!
