My kingdom for a small bag with an external water bottle pocket!
I love all my Tom Bihn bags and they've served me well through my crazy daily non-routine routine and lots of travel. But after a few chaotic weeks of local and long-distance travel, I've been feeling the need to minimize a little. My Imago is the perfect size for everyday carry of the essentials whether I'm running around near home or traveling, but because I need at least one water bottle pocket, I've been using my Ego. Which is a fantastic bag, but as a primary everyday bag, it's a little overkill for me. Any chance we might get a smaller messenger-type bag with an external water bottle pocket?
I've looked at the Id, but it's too briefcase-y looking and doesn't have the open, flexible capacity I love about the Imago. I have a Buzz, which is close to perfect in size and water bottle capacity, but it's not versatile enough in appearance plus the crossbody strap doesn't work so well with my bosom. And I have considered just slipping my travel mug or water bottle inside the Imago and sometimes I do, but that takes up valuable cargo space, invites more risk if it spills, and isn't as accessible.
So anything hopeful-looking on the horizon? Am I the only one with this need unfulfilled?
