    SuperEgo, woo!

    I've had this bag for awhile, but have only just recently been able to use it for it's intended purpose - my employer finally got me a laptop!

    An HP Elitebook 8740w now graces my desktop, as a replacement for a CAD workstation, which means this sucker is big, and HEAVY (almost 12 pounds! ). I was eager to put the Absolute Shoulder Strap to the test with this monster, which I did for the first time on Monday... And it performed beautifully!
    No pinching, no pulling, no "rope burn" at the side of my neck; I was very impressed at how well the wide and long neoprene part of the strap acted as a cushion and shock absorber at the same time, making my daily stroll to and from the bus stops a breeze. I'm curious how it will feel this summer as I go jacket-less, ie. less padding between me and the strap.

    In addition to the laptop, I sport a pair of sunglasses, iPod & earphones, pocketknife, various pens and pencils, a 3rd edition Kindle with Oberon cover, some various other small paraphernalia, a wireless mouse (check out Logitech's Unifying Nano Receiver), and various cords for the electronics. Everything pretty much stays in place as-is, but as soon as the retail store opens up I'll be visiting for some of the small organizer pouches and stuff, and maybe a different colored strap or two.

    Now, all I need is a padded case that attaches to the outside of the SuperEgo for the wireless keyboard, hmmmmm...

    UPDATE...

    Well, summer has arrived (sorta), and I've been running around with a loaded SuperEgo with just a t-shirt between me and the Absolute Shoulder Strap. As expected, I had no issues with it; it's just as comfortable with one layer as with several layers on my back.

    Another nice surprise is I discovered that I can put an 11x17 set of plans in the main compartment with the laptop without having to fold them... You have no idea how excited I was about this! I no longer have to fold over anywhere from 1 to 100+ sheets and cram them into a pocket not designed to accept them.

    I expect this bag to be with me a loooooooooooong time. Thanks to the craftspeople at Tom Bihn for providing it!
