My Five-Year-Old Zephyr Going Strong!
Congrats on your new Zephyr!

It looks professional, and I have gotten lots of positive comments from strangers. I suspect this is partly because of the crimson accent, which I really love.
As a side-note, might I suggest to the TB folks to consider including 5 to 10 business cards with your bags to hand out to people asking about the bag. I've been doing this with my popular-with-geeks Tyvek Dynomighty Wallets (another big conversation piece), as they include a few of their business cards inside their wallets.
I am an Apple consultant and technology instructor, so use my Zephyr to carry lots of gear, including my 15" MacBook Pro and iPad in a case. There is room for more, though sometimes I do need even more room. Is there a Super Ego in my future?
Oh-oh, my BAS (Bihn Acquisition Syndrome) is stirring again!
Finally, I recently discovered that the plastic file dividers that come with the Zephyr are easily removable - d'oh! Since almost all of my "paperwork" is now in PDF format on my iPad, no need for the dividers, and I gain a little extra room!
Oh... forgot to mention ... the Zephyr can get pretty heavy. The Absolute Strap is a must-have!
Enjoy your Zephyr!
Someone please help me!
I have BAS (Bihn Acquisition Syndrome)!!
