    Which two laptops do you want to carry? Would you carry each in a Brain Cell or Soft Cell?

    Figuring out exactly how big the bigger Empire Builder needs to be (and also determining if it's a bag anyone could actually carry) would be the first step in making it happen.

    Our factory is making two sample Zephyrs as I type. I should have pictures for you sometime next week. It will also probably be available for pre-order by then, too.

    Darcy, thanks for the continued updates on the Zephyr. I've been waiting since last September when I return an ID (I carry by hand more almost exclusively) in expectation of release of the smaller Empire Builder.

    I must say that the delay has been beneficial...it is teaching me patience. I look at my Kensington laptop bag with a Brain Cell inserted, slouching in the office, on the bus, etc., etc., and wistfully reflect on the day when it can be retired.

    The Black/Black/Olive sounds great. May April bring more than showers...

    Can't wait to see the Zephyr. I bought an Empire Builder last year and really love it. However, I need a slightly smaller bag for those times I can get away with not carrying a laptop. The Zephyr sounds like the right thing.

    Here's my vote for the Black/Black/Crimson or Black/Black/Magenta combo...I like that "red underwear under super-spy clothes" analogy!

    We are experimenting with using cork in bags other than the Archetype or Small Cork Organizer Pouch, but I'm doubtful that it will make it on a Zephyr flap anytime soon. Sorry!

    Darcy,
    I know that I've been longing for a Zephyr with external colors like olive and cocoa... but that the problem's with the fabric type and it's not going to happen. Ah well.
    I agree that more wasabi on the inside would be great. Makes sense for visibility.
    So how about this, then, as my dream combo:
    Black/Cork/Wasabi

    I'd happily pay more!
