daylight briefcase by tom bihn (2016)


After a month of checking, the black halcyon Daylight Briefcase was finally in stock! I ordered it on the Sunday in December 2016, and excitedly received it on the Friday with express shipping. For the UK readers, the tax fee from UPS was £28.

I bought the daylight briefcase because I needed a professional business and laptop bag, with assurances on workmanship and quality. It is also a great size for use as a personal item on flights. As always, Tom Bihn was my answer!

For those who are new to Tom Bihn, you may see my previous articles on 3 Tom Bihn bag reviews and Travel with less than 5kg for 5 days.

I waited for the black halcyon material as it is new to 2016. I wanted to keep a professional black colour but the dark black stripes also differentiates from the hoards of black laptop bags in the market.

The price of the daylight briefcase is $80. Full specifications of the Daylight Briefcase can be found on the Tom Bihn website here

I also bought some wasabi zipper pulls which I will use on my Aeronaut 30. I added a wasabi zipper pull on the daylight briefcase so you can see how it looks on the bag.

The daylight briefcase came with black zipper pulls and a shoulder strap. I already have the absolute shoulder strap by Tom Bihn and so I will use this together with the daylight briefcase.
