View Full Version : No size 2 Brain Cell in the Empire Builder?

I hope it's not an oversight, but is the size 2 Brain Cell truly not available for the Empire Builder? I have a gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket, and I think the Empire Builder is what I want, but...

Anyway, I'm headed to paramedic school in the fall, and I need a bag that functions equally well for work (laptop) and school (about 22 pounds and 9 inches of texts): the Empire Builder appears to be it, but if I can't get a size 2 Brain Cell for it, I'll have to go with a Super Ego.

Unrelated question: how often do you change your products (for example, rolling in feedback you've received)?

When Tom designed the Empire Builder, the Size 2 Brain Cell did not yet exist. Also, if the Empire Builder did fit the Size 2 Brain Cell, it would be as tall as the Super Ego, making it a pretty big bag - and adding unecessary height to the bag for those who use the Size 5, 4, or 3 Brain Cell. Making a larger version of the Empire Builder is something we are considering, but it would be a long time before it is available.

Many of our products are updated because of customer feedback. The Freudian Slip, Buzz, Empire Builder, Brain Bag, and Cafe Bag are only a few of the bags that have been modified after receiving customer suggestions.

I would immediately buy a stretched Empire Builder that could take a 2XL Brain Cell. But then it would be a de facto carry on bag, yes? I'll take it...
