    Also: The smaller Empire Builder is Tom's top design priority right now, and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw it available in September.
    Sounds SWEET! Must have one!! One request, though...SAGE please! I would love this in Sage! Thanks!

    Sweet...

    I recently got my hands on a 14" widescreen Asus W3J, and would love something well- built and protective to carry it, along with other necessities. The Current Empire Builder is tempting, but is a bit of overkill size-wise for me. (I know I'd end up carrying more than I need to all the time) I love the ability to access the main compartment without having to open a large flap. That, along with the dual handle design are what drew me to the Empire Builder.

    I've seen some people suggest things like external pockets for water bottles or phones, and that Tom wants to keep a professional appearance to the bag. You could do something along the lines of the "hidden" stowaway mesh pockets for water bottles I've seen on some bags, or additional "add- on" pockets for the strap for phones or Ipods...

    Just a couple ideas. I really hope you guys can get something into production soon. I could use a new bag.

    The Zephyr (Smaller Empire Builder?)

    I thought I saw a comment about Tom working on the design of a smaller Empire Builder a while back. Any news on this? I'd love to see one, as I'm sure many others would too. Probably something along the lines of a max sized 15" notebook fitting in. I don't think many would mind the thickness of the bag, but the outline can make it rather bulky- looking.
    Keep up the good work.
Working...
