“Got my Tri-Star used but with the Absolute Strap (which is one of the greatest things ever) in September. When I was looking to get the Tri-Star I wasn’t really sure what other bag would fit in the middle, but going by the dimensions I decided to go with the Ristretto for iPad to carry a netbook (don’t have an ipad). Needed this to One Bag it on my travels. This is the first trip with the Tri-Star, a 4 day trip to Vegas in October. The Ristretto worked just fine, pulled it out as my in flight bag, and its the ideal day bag.”
“I’m going to have to save a detailed writeup for later but here are a few pictures of my trusty Imago (the ‘MAN BAG’) up on Wudang Mountain in China.”

“I was glad my Smart Alec was so comfortable since I spent most of the time carrying one of my two girls while hiking.”

“But quickly, from what I gather, the bag [The Super Ego] has impressive build quality, lots of room, and is not as intimidatingly huge as I feared it would be. It is noticeably bigger than the ID, much like you’d put a side-by-side comparison between a MBP 17 against a MBP 15, that type of ratio. But from an aesthetic point of view, the bag’s size shouldn’t be feared at all, I am only 5′ 9″ (albeit on the heavy build side), and the bag doesn’t look disproportionate.”
