Here are some Smart Alec questions to kick around. Pun intended.
Am I correct in assuming that the Brain Cell laptop protectors can be clipped into place in a Smart Alec backpack, but other Tom Bihn laptop protectors would be free-floating if installed in there?
What are the advantages of clipped-in as opposed to free-floating?
What is meant by referring to the Brain Cell as a "hard sided" laptop case?
If I had a Smart Alec and I installed a Brain Cell, and also stashed other small items in the same compartment, how easy is it for the other items to slip down and get caught in behind the Brain Cell, necessitating the Brain Cell's removal? Has anyone had this problem?
If I had a Smart Alec and a Brain Cell installed therein, how easy is it to slide a Freudian Slip in the backpack as well? Can/should a FS also be clipped in there?
If I had a Smart Alec and a Brain Cell clipped inside, are there still places to hang Organizer Pouches, Key Straps, Guardian Light, etc.?
In terms of pockets and other clever built-in places to store things, how does a Smart Alec differ from a Ruc's Sack and a Brain Bag?
Does anyone here use a Smart Alec to haul around items like a digital camera or camcorder, walkie talkies, binoculars, or other technical items? If so, how do you handle them?
If you wanted to haul around a container of handy-wipes in a backpack like the Smart Alec, what would be the best way to make the container accessible and keep it upright so it doesn't just slosh around in there and get buried so you can never use it?
How stable is the Smart Alec in terms of sitting it down somewhere and expecting it not to tip over or otherwise fall/roll?
If anyone wants to post pictures or video (better yet) of how they use a Smart Alec, especially images of how you wear it and how you pack it, that would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance to everyone who shares insights on the Smart Alec.
