Journey to a perfect Vertical Brain Cell
I recieved my Smart Alec and Vertical Brain Cell the other day. I use it to hold a $2000 dollar Macbook Pro. After close inspection I noticed there is no padding below the sling in the Brain cell. I think it would greatly reduce the risk of damage if there was padding on the bottom of the Brain Cell between the sling and the hard plastic insert. The stiff foam padding on the sides would be perfect. It dosen't take up alot of space, but feels adequate. It would prevent damage if the sling was to "bottom out" in the case of a heavy drop. Is this practical? Would it add to much cost to production? And if it did, marketed the right way I think it would be an extra selling point. Also the exterior of the Brain cell feels.... rigid. What about some light padding just to give the outside of the bag a "warmer" feel? The material that the sling is made out of would be effective. Other then those two things mentiond I think Tom Bihn products are the closest thing to perfect as far as resonably priced protection goes. High quality make and materials, along with a staff that actually takes intrest in there customers feedback will always remain a winning combination. Thank you for a well made product.
P.S. Would it be possible to purchase the rigid foam that is used on the side to place in the bottom of the Brain Cell?
** Almost forgot! The Smart Alec is AWSOME!
