    ex machina,

    Is the steel on your Imago Ballistic and how do you like it compared with the Cordura?

    I think the ballistic looks real sharp. The color is great and the weave has this effect of making it look different as the lighting changes. It kind reminds me of sharkskin pants but no where near as pronounced in effect. I really like it.

    I have the medium cafe bag in navy cordura and I like that as well. Both are excellent fabrics. Do I have a preference? If I had to choose between the two fabrics, I would go with the ballistic. But no one is getting my cafe bag.

    By the By, the ballistic fabric is the best ballistic I have ever seen. It has this great sheen, smooth feel, head and shoulders above the rest out there. I would not hesitate to get another ballistic bag (or cordura bag for that matter) from Tom Bihn.

    So, I received the MCB and stuffed it with my things from my Imago and the small Stuff Sack; strangely, almost everything fit into it fairly well, although acclimating to a north-south from east-west orientation is mildly perplexing. (I've been using messenger-style bags daily for the past 8 years). I do like it, but more for an knock-around bag. If my stuff sack is really full, I am having problems with it bulging, which I know, backpack, you alluded to in your earlier post. And, at times, I will need more room for papers and possibly my laptop at work.

    Given that, plus the fact that a color combo I proposed for the Imago is coming in April (steel/cork/wasabi), I'm also going to order another Imago, as my other is relegated for diaper duty and I somehow *need* to have an Imago with a cork panel.

    Thanks to everyone who gave feedback.

    Talking

    I have found that a series of pouches and keystraps has been a huge aid in keeping my MCB organized and less trending toward a bulge. I can stack the pouches (small on small) between or behind the medium Clear Pouches. I will be posting my layout (with pics) over spring break (April 8-17.)
