I have fallen in love with Tom Bihn Bags. The provide just about everything I need for travel, save one thing: A Small Travel Briefcase. I have a Pilot and it just does not pass the site test walking in to a more formal business meeting. The squat shape and the single handle make it out of place. I love having it on the plane and have even packed for a few one night trips in it, but I need something more.
When searching for something to hold a laptop, iPad, and a few papers and pens I haven't found much out there that fits the bill. There is one bag I found in the apple store. It fits all the needs. It is slim enough to tuck into another bag(aeronaut 45 or BR 22" roller), it has space for an iPad and a Laptop. I just cant buy something that has all that branding and will pale in comparison to my TB bags in every way. I use this merely as an example of the form factor.

A bag with a similar design and function, made with the quality and craftsmanship of TB would be perfect. I have hopes that the checkpoint flyer laptop case may include in the redesign a few pen pockets and maybe an iPad/Tablet pocket. Anyone else out there have a need for something like this?
