The Team That Packs Together, Stays Together


7in7 Logo

Early on in the planning for 7in7 Year One, our team committed to partner only with sponsors who share our vision of a world full of global community and social responsibility. When we brainstormed our wish list of potential partners for our inaugural event, there was one name indisputably at the top of everyone’s list: Tom Bihn.

If you know anyone on our team personally, you’ve likely heard us talk about Tom Bihn. (You probably can’t get us to stop!)

Tom Bihn may be a small company, but great care goes into each and every product. They make amazing bags for real life: outdoor adventures, long-haul flights, city life, busy parents, and even puppies. These bags that are tough enough to stand up to the rigors of digital nomad life and even come with a lifetime guarantee.

Back in 2009, when my partner (and 7in7 co-founder) Nick and I were first setting out on our digital nomad journey, we both bought our first Tom Bihn Aeronauts. Our final purchase before becoming nomads, those bags have been through the Sahara desert twice, on ships, trains, and planes of all sizes – and they’re still going strong.

Our Tom Bihn bags represent our resilience and commitment to the minimalist, well-designed, and unconventional lifestyle.

Tom Bihn is unabashedly optimistic and enthusiastic about exploring this world.

To see and do and experience and love and enjoy.

All IG cliches aside, it really is about the journey.

Tom Bihn is the Riker to our Picard, the invisibility cloak to our boy who lived, the trusty companion to our Doctor.

Tom Bihn is passion, curiosity, and quality. We love them, and we love that they love travel, adventure and making the best damn bags on the planet. We wouldn’t trust our second-most valuable possessions – our laptops – to any other bag!

And we’re so thankful that they trust us to represent them and put on the best dang digital nomad conference the world has ever seen.

And we’re so thankful that they trust us to represent them and put on the best dang digital nomad conference the world has ever seen. Although Nick is prone to hyperbole, he’s not wrong when he says ” perhaps more than any other company represents and embodies what it means to be a digital nomad.” We can’t wait to show them off – and maybe reveal a few surprises – during Year One of 7in7!
