Tom's second shot on the Ristretto is the upgrade for which you've all been waiting. The new Ristretto has the same basic form-factor as the first version - it's still a vertical way to carry a MacBook Air, 13" MacBook/Pro or similar sized computer.
Main compartment is 3/8" (10mm) is thicker
Front pouch now has 1" (25mm) of depth
Organizer pockets are now in the front pouch instead of in the main compartment
Flap is now edged with contrasting black trim
Instead of adjustable toothed slides to attach the shoulder strap, the Ristretto now features the same steel eyelets as the Empire Builder and Aeronaut which allows the use of a wider variety of shoulder straps and allows the strap to pivot. A version of our Standard Shoulder Strap with metal d-rings is included with the Ristretto. For an additional $10, one can upgrade to the TerraGrip; for $15, the Q-AM (yes, with d-rings); and for $20, the Absolute.
More pictures and information coming soon. The new Ristretto should be in-stock by July 8th. The price of the Ristretto will be raised on July 9th.
