Newbie here, very impressed with the Tom Bihn line and passion about quality. I love the looks of the Ego bags, but think even the Ego (as opposed to Super) would be a bit large. I was curious if there were any plans to release a third (smaller) Ego at some point?

I am coming out of a Booq backpack that has lasted close to 10 years...ballistic...very durable.

Thanks in advance.

hello and welcome!

a smaller ego would be interesting (i know mine is pretty darned big! ;).

while the design is different than that of the ego and the superego, the id (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/200/TB0805) is a smaller messenger style bag.

Thanks, I had not really even considered the ID yet as I like the styling of the Ego...but I will have a look. Is it really that much smaller than the Ego?

Thank you - that would be helpful. I really like the Ego as well, but am worried about its size. What drove you to it (from the ID)?

i have an earlier generation id, and i really like it. but i haven't used it in a while - i've been using the large cafe bag or ruck's sac to carry my macbook, and the buzz or the smart alec when i carry my macbook pro.

even though the id is a messenger bag, i've always thought about it as a briefbag because i was in the mindset of looking for a briefbag when i got the id. so more than anything, i think it's a psychological thing.

even though the ego has more capacity than the id, i think it will feel more like a messenger bag, which is where my head is right now.

Well, I went ahead and bought a (used) Ego blindly...should be here next week. I am so excited, and will post my thoughts once I have used it for awhile.

I received my Ego today, and must say that it not as big as I thought it would be...it is PERFECT! Bravo Mr. Bihn!

Ego question: is there an organizer that fits the front vertical zippered pouches under the flap?

Bump up on this question, if anyone knows...

oh - sorry, i meant to respond to this. the small is a little tall, but the mini organizer pouch fits nicely.
