    Imago interior pockets

    It would be cool to have interior pen slots in the imago like Cafe bags have.

    I actually just ordered an Imago, so this won't really affect me as much (and unfortunately, it's going to arrive here a day too late to accompany me on my next trip), but I second this thought! I never carry enough pens/pencils with me to warrant a pencil case or an organizer pouch, and I don't like them sliding around and/or poking at the sides of my bag. Obviously, it wasn't a big enough disadvantage for me not to buy one, but I still think two (or even one) pen/pencil holders would be really useful.

    Pen pockets are generally quite deep, though, aren't they? How do you get your lip balm out?

    But I agree. Two pen pockets does seem ideal.

    indeed, sometimes the lip balm slips into the pocket and i have to push it up from the bottom. though, i think i have a solution - i could stack two lip balms. the one at the bottom acts as a base for the one on top, making the one on top more easily accessible.

    thank you!

    I would like to see some Tom Bihn accessories for use in (or as) pockets. Like a pocket organizer, or a removable pocket system for the main compartment that can be transferred between bags. I have the Imago and the Medium Cafe Bag. Both are excellent. I found, much to my surprise, that a multi-bag system works best for me.
    Bags: Super Ego (Black/indigo w/cork seatbelt); Aeronaut (Crimson/Steel); 2 Medium Cafe Bags (Navy/Cayenne, Linen/Olive), w/an Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap; Large Cafe Bag (Cocoa/Wasabi) w/Absolute Strap; Imago (sadly lost to hazmat); a Brain Cell w/ another Strap Wrap; and a Shop Bag (Steel). Accessories: Bunches and bunches.
    Wanted: Zephyr or Empire Builder.
