    Thanks, Darcy. I need the breather.

    Thanks for letting us know. It's good to have a general idea of when it will (or won't) be available when I'm planning future purchases.

    Since it's not out anytime soon there's plenty of time for me to begin convincing myself that I "need" it!

    Agreed...like to get some sort of confirmation from Darcy? Is this a real product?

    Is there any update on the new backpack between the size of the SA and the BB? Sounds like something which could be perfect for me.

    Thanks!

They come in small (for women or children) and larger for men. I have the small focus which holds 1600 cu inches while the flux runs 1400-1500 and the large focus 1800. Osprey no longer makes these but they're still available. http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=3015
    I have an Osprey. I've been using mine while waiting for the Synapse. It's close to perfect in terms of what I like in a backpack- it fits my small frame, has good organization, a place for my notebook, water bottle pocket etc. For whatever reason it's just not as comfortable as most of my TB bags. I don't have a TB backpack yet that I use. The brain bag is way too big for me and the old Buzz just isn't built for my body. And yet they're comfortable in a way the Osprey isn't.

    I went back to re-read this thread and it looked like there was a bag in design that would bridge (in size) the Smart Alec and the Brain Bag. For me, the SA is a bit too small and the BB a bit too big. Anyone have any clues as to whether a middle bag is still in development as planned? Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks all!

    Darcy,

    On some of the other threads, you mentioned some other bags in development. Could any of these fit into the category I am looking for?

    Also, I know you assume this but do not hear many people saying it. You guys have AWESOME customer service.

    I was hoping that the Synapse would be in my strike zone, but weighing in at 1100 Cu In, I am thinking it would be a little too small. Bummer.

    Here is a thread summarizing the Synapse, which is currently in production and should be released for pre-order soon. There is more info about it on the blog.

    I'm not sure yet: it should probably fit at least the Size 5 Brain Cell and the Size 6 Vertical Soft Cell It won't have a built-in sleeve for laptops.
