    Cool The Empire Builder is AWESOME.

    Just got my new Empire Builder. I was essentially needing a Brain Bag Suitcase. It doesn't hold as much as the BB, but it holds a ton. It's extremely well made (of course), is easy to carry (even when fully loaded) and looks fantastic.

    I'm surprised this bag isn't more popular, but I guess as laptops are getting smaller and lighter, so are bags. For me, I love being able to hold the following items in a beautiful but tough looking bag:

    • 15" MBP
    • 12.9" iPad Pro
    • Bose QuietComfort headphones
    • Bag of cables/adapters
    • 2nd Aid Kit (aka misc. sundries)
    • Side Kick
    • External USB Drive
    • MBP Power Adapter
    • iPad Pro Power Adapter
    • Anker 10 port USB charger
    • Belkin Surge Protector
    • Flashlight
    • Anker USB Charger, and
    • Zojirushi stainless steel thermos

    I'll be doing a video review comparing it to the Co-Pilot and Pilot over the next few weeks. Be on the lookout!

    Hi -- the bag is plenty big and there are a few different places you can fit the thermos ó the main compartment, one of the front pockets (that go under the flap) or, depending on the size of your thermos, there's a pocket on the front of the flap that you can slip it down into.

    Hope that help! ��

    I usually slide a Thermos or huge bottle in the main compartment at the end of the computer I am carrying and it just stands there waiting for me to need it.
    I only carry a computer inside a Brain Cell in general there or a Toughbook and the hard sides of the bag and computer case wall off a perfect spot for bottles for me.

    Since I carry a gaming laptop when I travel, I need the Empire Builder or the Synapse 25. I used to carry a Super Ego, with a 17" gaming laptop in it, so it's actually a step down.

    I LOVE the Empire Builder. It's the perfect size and organizational layout.
