    Plans for a Left-Shoulder Buzz?

    I remember that the previous (slightly smaller) version of the Buzz was at one time offered in a reverse option for carrying it on your left shoulder. Are there any plans for offering something like that for the revised Buzz?

    I really like single-strap slingbags for small loads, but definitely prefer them on my left shoulder. I am right-handed, and always end up putting the bag on my right when I "arrive" at a destination -- be it home, car, or work. With the bag on my left shoulder, it's an easy one step maneuver, lifting the strap over my head with my right hand as I step into the car, for example. With the strap on my right shoulder, it's a much more awkward maneuver for me.

    I plan to use the Buzz with a 13" MacBook, so finding one of the older, discontinued bags wouldn't work for me.

    Of course, I am probably in the minority, which would explain why the reverse-Buzz option was dropped from the product. But if there are any left-shoulder plans, I'd be willing to wait. (I'll be buying an Aeronaut and a Brain Bag soon to tide me over ...)

    BJ Nemeth --

    We don't plan on making a left-shoulder Buzz. Tom explains why in this post hidden in the New product summary thread.

    Tom does, however, plan to design a new, smaller Buzz similar in size to the previous version of the Buzz. It will probably fit the 13" MacBook.

    Thanks!

    I love being able to hear the *actual* reason from the craftsman himself, and not just random made-up marketing speak -- one of the many great things about your company!

    His explanation makes perfect sense (especially about inventory problems and confusing the customers -- more choices aren't always better), and I think I'll quickly adapt to the right-shoulder Buzz.

    Thanks as always, Darcy! :-)
