    EEEEK! It's too good. For some reason I really like the look of the 11"/iPad version. Why did I buy the 13" Macbook Air >.<

    Thank you very much Tom, Darcy, et.al.

    Edit:
    Darcy - Do you think that maybe sometime you might be able to snap a picture of clip/webbing setup for the Cache in there (if possible.) Edit2: Actually, could you put up a larger picture of the attachment picture you have on the website?

    Looks great - I was waiting for the Pilot, but this looks even better to me.

    One question - do the handles have the Poron foam like the Co-Pilot and Zephyr/EB?

    I have absolutely no use for a briefcase. . . but I want a Cadet, excellent execution!
    I really, really like TB Bags!

    "Stand-ability"

    Can the large size Cadet stand on it's own or does it "lean" like the EB?

    I currently have a Cadet empty and standing on its own on my desk. Though, its stand ability will also depend on how you pack it. I find the Empire Builder stands up exceptionally well on its own. If you put a large amount of weight in one side of the bag, and not the other, the bag will tip as all bags would.

    While I do not have a Empire Builder--I thought it leaned due to the fact that the large main section had more of a weight disparity compared to this, which looks fairly balanced.

    I'm still working on my excuse..

    First it was: It will match my Tri-Star! Then I realized I use my Brain Cell with my Tri-Star so that wasn't a good enough excuse.

    Current excuse: Because it's Navy!!!

    Looks fantastic! Definitely gonna be an upcoming purchase for me. My current 3 year old laptop bag is close to giving up the ghost. Now I just need to decide whether I want the navy or the red. I've got red everything currently (quite funny at the airport when I'm pulling out my red-covered iPhone, red-covered iPad, red laptop bag, and red Aeronaut at the security checkpoint).

    I kinda wish the red came with the yellow or purple dyneema.

    OK, I've now regained some composure.

    Katy, can the Cadet hold a water bottle?

    Perhaps in the main compartment. What type of water bottle are we talking about here?

    Hey Katy, will the Cadet fit in the center section of the Tristar?
