    please, please, please - make a version for international travel. I know this has been posted by myself and others, but I don't want the point to be missed amidst talk of colors.

    If you can't do a 3 country/1 week business trip with this bag to Europe or Asia, this really wont meet the need of international travellers that need to check the bag once arriving on another continent...

    I flew Air France last month, and I must say that I was surprised how small the Airbus storage bins are. My wife's wheeled bag barely fit...and its a bit smaller than most.

    leftistelf, why do you think that this bag is too big to be a permissable carry-on for international travel? All airlines have slightly different standards, but a bag with total dimensions of 45" conforms to the general standard for European and Asian airlines. I've found that most European/Asian airlines are more concerned with weight. One of our completely size-appropriate bags had to be checked on a AirFrance flight last year because it was 1k over the 12k maximum!

    It's our new marketing plan! Make people go crazy waiting...just kidding!!

    We're working on pictures right now. Here are the first pictures I took of the bag. I don't think they are very good, so we're going to take new pictures. But they are something to look at!

    As for the bag itself, the design is pretty much completed and it is already on our production schedule.

    Darcy, the new marketing plan is working!!!! :)

    In what color will the Aeronaute be available?

    What do you suggest as an alternative to the monolith to carry two laptops in the brain bag?

    I think we are planning to make a few in Sage.
    See the quote for available colors.

    Color update: The Aeronaut will be available in Steel, Crimson, Black, Kiwi, Sage, and Hunter Green (only one in Hunter Green -- we're testing this color to see if we like it). No Grape -- sorry!

    backpack -- I think using two Monoliths inside the Brain Bag, in each compartment, would be the best solution if you need to carry two laptops. Is there a reason why this doesn't work for you?

    Colors and ordering

    We are actually making only ONE in Hunter Green, just to see if we like it. If any forum reader simply must have that color, contact Darcy to reserve it for you.
    Darcy and I hope to have it up on the website for pre-ordering in the next few days; the design glitch with the new 4X Brain Cell has bumped production back maybe a week.
    I use one of the earlier prototypes on my weekly trips to Seattle, basically living out of it for a few days at a time: I LOVE THIS BAG and I hope when you get one you'll agree it was worth the wait. Sorry for the delays!

    I think I'm going to have the same problem, I get two carryons for the plane, but I can't wear a brain bag and the aeronaut on my back at the same time. I'm going to need an over the shoulder solution for my laptops

    The Aeronaut has a super-comfortable handle, and it also has attachments for a shoulder strap (I'd recommend using the Absolute Shoulder Strap.) You can definitely use it as an over-the-shoulder bag.
