    Larger Messenger-style bag?

    Just wondering if there are any plans in the works for the production of a messenger style bag with a larger capacity than the ID (Empire Builder size?). I just purchased a size 5 Brain Cell for my Ibook but am hesitant to purchase the ID because of its limited capacity. I'm a grad student and need to be carrying around more than just my laptop and some accessories. I love the capacity of the Empire Builder but I'm really not interested in a briefcase (I bike to work) or a traditional pack like the Brain Bag. I know Tom mentioned something about the production of a bag meeting these criteria on these forums earlier this year - has anything developed? If possible, I would like to purchase from Tom Bihn again as I am very impressed by the quality and always appreciate American craftmanship. Thanks in advance.

    Are you sure the ID bag isn't big enough for you ? Take a look at the dialog I'm having with Acumo in the thread "ID or Empire" in this Everything Else board (and the pictures I did). I was seriously surprised about how much stuff I could actually get into that bag, and it wasn't bursting at the seams then, just comfortably full.

    If you are not part of the solution you are part of the precipitate!

    The Super Ego and Ego messenger bags are coming along. We are working to increase our production capacity and plan on introducing the bags in early 2005.
