    Empire Petite?

    I'm looking for a bag with the organizational flair of the Empire Builder, but smaller. Actually, not so much smaller, necessarily, as lighter. I recently had foot surgery, and need to limit the heft of my bags. My laptop itself only weighs three pounds - I don't want a bag that more than doubles the weight I'm carrying.

    That said, I really love the EB, and am wondering whether you'll be offering something similiar, but smaller in the future.


    Have you looked at the ID? It shares features with the EB, but is a bit smaller and lighter. I currently use a bag about the size of th EB for daily work use, and recently purchased an ID for travel because it was a bit smaller and lighter, but still held a reasonable amount of stuff. Just a suggestion.
