“I am new to this forum and a proud owner of a Super Ego bag. This is my first Tom Bihn bag and amazed at the built and quality of this bag. I bought this bag to primarily carry a 15 inch Lenovo W520 laptop. Surprisingly I can fit a lot of stuff in this bag. My plan is to carry the following stuff when me and my wife leave in 2 weeks for our vacation. Even with all 26 lbs of stuff in the bag, the Super Ego doesn’t look bulky at all. “

Not that there are any rolling craniums round the manor house, but if
there were… this would be the bag to transport them with. It’s also

cell (not for hauling severed skulls either, so I’m not sure why they
sent me one, but it works well for a macbook pro anyway) and goodly
amount of other detritus. Like my lunch. My lunch is actually
traveling far better than it did my my old basic (in a converse chuck sort
of way) jansport two strapper. The trick is to take the lunch out of

Lunch is a sandwich, crackers, baby carrots and a banana. Epic
