    We are breathlessly awaiting new product announcements and many Binions cannot separate themselves from the TB website...unlike myself, of course....

    :)

    This is just a weekend trip - I'm back Sunday. And other than the hour and half or so of flight time, I am connected!

    I am very excited about the announcements! Monday, hopefully! :)

    I didn't get pictures, unfortunately, but I also traveled this past week with my Brain Bag on the Amtrak. It's an incredibly flexible travel companion!

    A super stuffed Brain Bag may not fit in the overhead bin of a Dash 8-200, but it will fit under the seat in front of you. Carrying some electronics in hard cases, so it won't compress the way it would with clothes.

    Thanks, @maverick, for the helpful packing photos. I recently acquired a used BB -- my first Indigo TB item! -- and am still intimidated by its size. It took me a bit of time to fully appreciate the SA when I first got one, but now I love it. Am sure that will also be the case with the BB. For now, I am still swooning over the color Indigo! Wow!

    One of the wonderful features of the Brain Bag are the compression straps! Whether you pack it to the gills or lightly, it carries wonderfully on your back!

    Here is a link to a picture of my 2004 BB as my EDC using the compression straps. It actually compresses down to something thinner than the S25 depending on what you pack. It is just a bit more "busy" look compared to the SA or S25.

    Hope this helps

    Cheers!
