    Zephyr Back Pockets

    I am trying to post this agaiin since original attempt seems to have failed. If I inadvertently have posted it twice my apologies.

    The website description of the Zephyr (which I recently purchased) says:

    "The back of the Zephyr features a "roll-aboard" slot on the back that allows you to safely stack the Zephyr on top of roll-aboard luggage. The slot zips shut at the bottom so it can be used as a pocket when you're not using it to fit on a roll-aboard, plus there are two small pockets on either side of the slot for a cell-phone or pens."

    My bag does not seem to have the small back pockets. Am I missing something or is the description inaccurate?

    Just can probably answer this, since I think that she has a Zephyr, however, doe the back of your Zephyr look like this?

    I think that the seamed center section is where the roll-aboard extension is supposed to go; you unzip the bottom of the flap starting where the zipper head can be seen at the left, and the roll-aboard extension goes through the central pocket between the two sets of seams at either side. The two side pockets can be seen to the right and left of the vertical seams. The tops of each pocket have piping that runs diagonally from the edge of each central vertical seam towards the left and right sides of the bag.

    The description (and pictures) are now outdated. Recently, the zip-open roll-aboard pocket on the back of the Zephyr (and Empire Builder) was widened to allow it to slip over wider luggage handles. That necessitated the removal of the two little pockets - pockets which we (and customers) didn't find very useful anyhow.
