The contents of my Super Ego are:
1 - Lenovo T61P in a size 2S Brain Cell
1 - extra laptop battery
1 - Black Snake Charmer with power cord for laptop, car charger for laptop, 1 IBM mini mouse
1 - Wasabi Snake Charmer with 3 CAT5E cables, 1 Crossover cable, 1 Netgear 5 port switch
1 - small pouch (cork fabric) with a Verizon wireless card
1 - mini pouch (hunter green) with business cards
1 - 2 USB flash drives (2GB and 8GB)
1 - Leatherman multitool (Wave style)
1 - Leatherman Monarch LED tactical flashlight (148 Lumen)
1 - CD case that holds 20 CD (currently full).
1 - medium pouch with 1 80GB 2.5" HDD and USB / SATA connector and external enclosure
3 - pens
1 - Canon powershot camera
1 - precision reversible screw driver for small screws
1 - travel toothbrush
1 - travel toothpaste
1 - comb
1 - RIM BlackBerry
1 - Plantronics Discovery Bluetooth earpiece

I still have plenty of room in the main compartment. It's heavy as sin. But all of my kit bags have been heavy. The Super Ego just holds everything so well. It never looks over loaded, and is so neat with the extra pouches and charmers.
I was actually thinking of attempting a retrofit for an absolute strap. I may just have to try that to save my back :)

I am a medical student. I destroyed 3 bags in the first year and a quarter then a buddy showed me the glory of TB bags. I ordered a super ego with a Q-AM strap. The first thing I did was see how many medical texts I could get in it, over 3000 pages in the main if anyone wondered(thats Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine(two volume set), Robbins Pathologic Basis of Disease, Kandel Principles of Neural Science, and Boron Medical Physiology) obviously I don't CARRY that but it does fit.

Currently in my Super EGO.
thermos (outter water bottle pocket)
cell phone charger, lotion, Kleanx, small first aid kit, flashlight, pen light, stethoscope, reflex hammer, set of 20 staedtler markers, mini umbrella, bunch of pens and highlighters, binder clips, 7 sharpie minis, couple of bucks in quarters, a canon sd1000(thats under the flap/ under the hood is what i call it cause of the seat belt buckle)
In the zippered compartment i have 3 neurology review books, a pocket greys anatomy, a baby robbins(book), immunology book, 1.5 inch three ring binder, legal pad, clip board.
Yes I know I have a problem. I just realized I NEED a freudian slip.

In this thread, post a list or pictures of What You Carry in your Super Ego (http://www.tombihn.com/page/001/PROD/700/TB0825). We will add your packing list to the Super Ego page to help give other people a better idea of what the bag can hold.

Were you still going to add pictures of this? (Please!) Wow, I'm impressed that it carried Harrison's, as well as the additional books. Not that I plan on carrying my Harrison's out of my house ever again, but it's nice to know!

added 3 photos of my super ego with a two volume set of harrisons and kandel. if you flip these books 90 degrees in the bag so they sit on the side they sit on in a book shelf you can get 6 total books in there. The bag feels good with three books(the two volume set and kandel).

enjoy
