    Congratulations on selling out so quickly! I'm glad I bought mine the first day. I just hope my planned trip to England/ Ireland/ Wales comes through next month so I can use it!

    It is! Sometimes I get the dimensions misplaced when trying to determine a bag's size, and that way it's very clear what is what. Thank you!

    Hi Akilae,

    The videos accurately represent the Camera I/O -- the longest dimension is it's width, or the side that the bag rests on when it is sitting upright, or placed into a Brain Bag. It's very similar to the dimensions of my size 6T Brain Cell, if I were to place two of these Brain Cells back to back, so that the smallest dimension of the Brain Cell, set by the thickness of the laptop, is doubled.

    Sorry, didn't see leviathan's updated post with labels on the images till after I posted.

    Basic logic, dictated by provided evidence, gives us:

And often, when we thought we had found the perfect solution, we tested it and it turned out to need more tweaking.

    And in other news... the first batch of Camera I-O bags has sold out. It's now available for backorder and ships by early June.
    I am impressed that Tom did not bow to pressures to release a product that is NOt totall 100% to his satisfaction.

    On the Camera I/O selling out so quick: not a surprise at all. And if Tom can be convinced to make a model to fit the micro four thirds system, I believe TB will be swamped with orders. There NO bag in the market for the micro four thirds. So here is to hoping for a Camera I/O for the micro four thirds! And the smaller brain bag to go with it! YAY!

    I'm so glad! Thanks for being here on the forums -- you guys make them what they are.

    I received my Camera I-O today and per usual, it's everything you'd expect from a TB bag. My Brain Bag is 6 years old and still looks brand new despite being put through the paces almost every day. I was surprised as to how big it was in the pack - it takes up just about the entire back slot (with some room to put a few smaller items on top).


    Albeit potent blasphemy, is there any way I use the case to transport my laptop (Macbook Pro) as well? MBP + camera (SLR, so smaller than the DSLR it was designed for) would be PERFECT. I know its unlikely but figured if anyone would know, it'd be you guys here.

    +1 for loving to see how it went from the insert in 2009 to what it is today.
    Use a brain cell with the clips on the outside of the case via annex clips?

    It's been a long long time since I've been on here. My Brain Bag is now almost 6 years old and still looks practically brand new. It refuses to show any wear, despite being used nearly every day since it arrived. Having dipped my toes into photography recently, there was no way I could turn this down. Granted I don't have the big DSLR that it was designed for (starting with film), I was hooked with the design, approach and obvious quality. It lives up to expectations.

    My question: Since I have some room to spare, I was hoping to use this as a laptop sleeve as well if you will. Have both laptop + camera (what more would I ever need?) in one spot. Anyone know if there's a way to pull this off?

    Since I'm not going to be able to order the Camera I-O soon, my favorite part of this rollout has been Dan Bihn's videos. Tom, your brother is awesome!
