So, while I contemplated long and hard about my purchase of an Ego, I did what any Bihn addict would do and scoured the forums, TB site, and the rest of the interwebs for pictures and videos of the Ego. I found stand alone shots and vids of the Ego, but not really any super stellar comparison shots. That's when I decided to take some to share with the rest of my beloved Bihnions as soon as I got my new Ego in my eager hands. If there are any other bags you'd like to see the Ego photographed with, I also have a SCB, A30, DLBP, SA, SE, S25, and various other packing cubes and pouches. To the photos!!
Here's the empty Ego with my Navy/Solar Pilot. Note that I do have a few things packed in the Pilot, but it pretty much holds its structure unlike its new big brother.
The Pilot placed on top of the Ego.
The Pilot is thicker than the empty/hungry Ego, but don't let the Ego fool you just yet.
The Ego is noticeable taller than the Pilot, but again, don't let its skinny self fool you!
A view from the too. The Ego is also quite a bit longer than the Pilot.
And now for the moment of truth...I stuff the Ego with some couch (or in my case, futon) pillows to give an idea of how much it can expand.

From the side.
Comparison of the MCB, Ego, and Pilot.
The Ego is most definitely my new ninja bag. That expansion is super impressive. I also love that it doesn't make me look like Quasi Modo when I wear it when it's gained some weight...that's one thing I don't like about the Synapse family when I wear them, but then again, that's just my personal preference.
If anyone would like, I can also take some shots of me wearing the bag to give an idea of how it looks on a 5'8.75", mildly fit but still a little lumpy, twenty something female.
Ask and you shall receive.
