Take a look at the entry posted over at Slacker Manager about the Empire Builder.
Anyway, I’d been looking around for a bag that’ll carry my laptop, assorted files and papers, some reading material and other miscellaneous jive. Basically something that could serve as my travelling office. Most computer bags have enough space for the computer, but little else. Not to mention zero style points. Somewhere along the line, I ran into references to Tom Bihn’s stuff. They make their stuff just up the road from me, in Washington state and outsource production to shops in other states when needed. I haven’t been to one of their stores and the only bags I have are the two I mentioned, but judging from their website and other reviews, all their gear is as well made as these. I say gear because that’s really what it feels like: high quality outdoor gear. Here in the Pacific Northwest, where Gore-Tex jackets are everyday apparel, this kind of bag fits right in.
