    I am pretty sure we will be adding the two new colors to the Imago. In the next batch of the Imago (due around early-mid December) the only colors that we will continue from the previous batches will be Cocoa/Cocoa/Wasabi and Olive/Steel/Wasabi.

    The straps are removable. You could have all three shoulder straps if you wanted to alternate between them. We're working on a page that allows you to buy the shoulder straps separately from the bag.

    The toothed slide we previously used accepted only 2" webbing. The new toothed slide accepts 1 1/2" webbing, which allows us to give you the choice of the standard strap, an Absolute Shoulder Strap, or a third kind of strap that will debut in the next couple of months that is a quick-adjust extended pad messenger-style shoulder strap.
    Quick-adjust messenger style shoulder strap? That's exactly the type of stap I love. Are the straps removable or do you have to buy the bag with it? I might have to wait a few more months before I do a bag upgrade.

    That's very true! I just changed the title of the page to 'A Laptop Messenger Bag'. Also, because we're talking about the ID redesign in this thread in addition to colors, I changed the title of your thread to "New colours? ID Redesign?" instead of creating a separate thread for the ID discussion -- hope that's OK.

    Back to colors....I am really excited about the three colors we're adding! I should be able to tell you more about two of them early next week.

    The ID has been redesigned? It looks great! Now I just need to figure out if I want an Imago or an ID. I need something bigger than the large cafe bag, but I'm not sure exactly how much bigger...

    Does the shoulder strap to the ID clip on?

    Thanks, Darcy! Now I want an ID more than ever...

    By the way, I really hate that the Imago page is titled "A MacBook Messenger Bag"; presumably there are more of us out there without a MacBook than with one... Personally, I'm planning to get one to fit my Averatec 1000-series laptop (for which, sadly, there is no appropriately-sized braincell). As soon as I can decide which colours I want.

    Hi Joy!

    We've added Hunter as an option on the Imago, Empire Builder, and ID. Three other colors will probably be added to the palette by March, but we're going to keep them a surprise. Pictures of the bags in Hunter should be added soon.

    And the ID has been redesigned (take note of the cool new curve in the flap). Stay tuned for more on that later today/tomorrow.

    Edited to add: The Super Ego is now available with Snow Leopard Ultrasuede, Cork, and Galvanized strips.

    New colours? ID Redesign?

    Is it just me, or have you been expanding the colour choices for some bags? I don't remember black/hunter for the Imago. Are there any pics of what this combination looks like? Also, has the ID been redesigned? I don't remember ultrasuede pockets or an absolute strap option, etc.
