I've got the Syndrome again! Finally ordered an Aeronaut (Steel/UV)! Also ordered my son's first TB bag, an Ego (Black/Black/Steel). He's a One-Bagger (and very good at it), but thinks traveling would be even better if he had a messenger bag for his in-flight stuff.
Also looking forward to a Clear Quarter Packing Cube in solar, to manage all those cables, and a PCSB in steel. I want to truly go One Bag (I've been doing combinations of Tri-Star/Western Flyer with M. Cafe Bag/Imago).
Order placed late yesterday - Aeronaut (steel/solar) with optional waist strap, 2 end pocket packing cubes (one all fabric, one fabric/mesh), 2 large packing cubes, 2 small packing cubes, 1 3D clear organizer cube (azalea!), 1 package cord zipper pulls, and 1 ultrasuede screen cloth (lapis blue). Box is ready for UPS to pick up tomorrow, but I'm several zones away on the MS Gulf Coast so probably won't get it until mid next week. :-(
I'll also be eager to hear what your son thinks of his Ego. My son is now commuting to his new job in Geneva from a place outside the city: sometimes on the bus, sometimes on foot, though he hopes to buy a bike soon and use it. He's got a messenger bag from a company which shall not be named (OK, so it's a Timbuk2, but it was a cheap eBay purchase), but I'm wondering whether he would appreciate a Tom Bihn bag for this commute. He's an academic, and carries his 15-inch MacBook Pro and papers, books, lunch, running gear, phone, wallet, etc. I'm not sure whether he'd prefer an Ego or SuperEgo, a BrainBag, or perhaps the mysterious new bag that Darcy keeps teasing us about. Will your son be using his new Ego anytime soon, so we can get a report?
With the weather definitely becoming more autumn-like it seemed time to retire my Linen/Steel Cafe bag for the season. Since I got the SCB this summer it has become my work horse bag, so I can't imagine Fall and Winter without a SCB. So, the Syndrome struck again and I ordered a Conifer/Steel SCB yesterday (along with some pouches and an Iberian ultrasuede cloth, of course). I think this is the first or second time I've placed an order with everything in stock, so the anticipation will only last as long as UPS ground takes (the UPS tracking number just arrived!).
I just put away my Linen MCB, and packed my notebooks into the Azalea one. Living in the NW, I guess I feel a need to refute the gray and rainy with bright colors!
I got my Aeronaut today too! OMG, I LOVE it! It's smaller than I expected, which was thrilling, since small is what I want. I want to wear it everywhere! I'm going on an overnight this weekend, and even though it's overkill, guess which bag is coming along? I am in love with my new Aeronaut.
My son likes his new Ego, too.
Large Clear Organizer Pouch (hopefully with Iberian Dyneema backing)
Absolute Shoulder Strap w/Cadet
I went without the Cadet Cache due to the fact that I do like being able to take out my Macbook Air while it is in the Cache still. I didn't think I would like having it attached via clips all the time. I also do not travel enough to the point where this would become an advantage.
Regardless to say, I'm very excited. So excited, that now that I have this order finally in, maybe my head will let me sleep ^_^
Various color keystraps
So excited! Think I can get away with borrowing my son's Ego for a couple more days?
I just placed an order for a Steel/Ultraviolet Co-Pilot. I found out a few weeks ago that I will soon be laid off next Friday. I had been going back and forth about placing my order but I decided I deserved it after all the stress I've been under & it would be an early Christmas present to me from me. So Merry Christmas to me!
