Our Thoughts

Tom Bihn is a legendary carry-on maker so you know this bag is well made and has all the features you'll need.

Going with an established bag maker is always a great choice. A person named Tom Bihn started Tom Bihn over 40 years ago. 40 years of experience means this bag will hold up vs. the competitors. New carry-ons on Kickstarter won't have the same level of execution vs. an older company.

The Tom Bihn Synapse is one of the smaller one bags but still is enough for a 3-4 day trip. If you are flying on a more generous airline, consider the Synapse 25 for a little more space. 19L of capacity means you are fairly limited as to what you can pack.
