Super Ego, Ego impressions/experiences?
I haven't posted in awhile, good to be back. I'm mulling over the Ego, and possibly the Super Ego bags, though the Super Ego is probably too big for my needs. Plus, I'm a short 5'5'', 130-140 lbs. I already have an ID, and a Large Cafe, so I really don't know why I'm thinking along the line of getting another TB bag.
The info I found along with the pictures out there is pretty spotty, and I'd welcome some insights/pictures/videos of especially the Ego. What I'm looking for(always!) is a bag that can be used everyday. I'm trying to zero in on an everyday bag, that can also be utilized for overnight-1 week trips, and still be usable in tight, crowded conditions (I live in Asia). Anyway, I'm just curious.
Is there any chance the Ego will be offered in Indigo in the future?:) Thanks!

More questions on the Ego.
Can somebody tell me how many O-rings the Ego has, and if a packed Ego fits the carry-on size requirement for airlines? Does it fit under a seat, or into the overhead? Thanks!
Your spoiling me North Boy...
Thanks seriously for the info on the O-rings. I had figure around six. Hmmm. When I look at the Super Ego, I really think it's too big for what I need, plus the environment I'm in presently. I like the Absolute Shoulder Strap, that's what I have both my Large Cafe and ID on. I'm always finding the end in the way when I'm walking with the Q-AM Strap, although it's possible to get the bag on your back and out of the way that way. The EGO is just a little bigger than the ID? I'd have to brush up on my 'situational awareness' skills.
With a vertical layout, you can move the bag behind you going through a crowd, or a narrow, confined aisle. My ID tends to stick out and get in the way, especially if it's packed to the gills. I used to carry the Horizontal Freudian Slip with me everywhere, I don't now, to save space and weight. But I was out, and had it, and maybe a few small items in the main compartment, and my wife and her sister bought bread, and I couldn't fit it into the ID other open compartment. So I ended up having to carry it, and a few more things in plastic bags.
I know that what I'm looking for is a dichotomy ...On one hand, I'm looking for more room, even more organization, and on the other, less bulk, more stealth. I still have to think on it.
