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!
