“I just wanted to let people know how amazingly comfortable the Super Ego can be fully loaded. I was not happy that I was “stuck” with a messenger bag instead of a Brain Bag Backpack (since the big HP wont fit). I did not want to carry a heavy asymetrical load on my spine. However, when carried on the lower back, with the stabalizing belt that comes with it, the entire load is shifted to the hips, just like a good backpack. (more after the break)
This position also keeps the load at a lower center of gravity which helps with stability over the icy sidewalks here in Vermont. And even if I fall on my backside, I am happy knowing that I have such great protections for my PC.
I opted for the adjustable messenger strap. The wide padded strap is just the best for comfort.
And toche! for having a bright color on the inside of the bag. It makes it so easy to spot items in the front pocket area.
I spent a lot of time researching and pondering the problem of a large 17 inch PC rig – and wouldnt you know it – it actually turned out to be a “No Brainer”!” — caryn
