The Imago is an open-top messenger bag that you can use as a mini mobile office or a school bag. While the Imago does not have a built-in spot for a laptop, you can slip our Cache laptop sleeve or Brain Cell laptop case inside the main compartment, transforming it into an efficient and protective laptop messenger bag.
The Imago closes with a flap and a 2" / 50 mm plastic side-release Duraflex® Warrior buckle. Under the flap, on the front of the bag, are two pockets: one curved open-top and one zippered.
Inside the main compartment are two deep pouch pockets that can be used to store and organize power supplies and other similarly sized items. On the back, an open-top flat pocket is perfect for magazines or a newspaper. The top exterior of the bag features a webbing grab/carry handle. On both sides of the Imago are small pockets designed to securely carry portable electronic devices such as cell phones, iPods/MP3 players, or PDAs. Lined with Ultrasuede® and closed by #8 YKK Aquaguard® water-repellent zippers, these pockets also provide scratch-free storage for eyewear.
You'll find multiple
The Imago is available in a number of color combinations. Different color combinations are made out of different fabrics: our U.S. made, 1050 denier, high tenacity ballistic nylon, and 1000 denier Cordura®; some feature cork on the front flap.
The Imago rides on your shoulder with the Standard Shoulder Strap, a 1-1/2" wide heavy nylon webbing strap with a comfortable wide foam pad that won't slip off your shoulder and is designed to conform to your shoulder and back. A removable waist strap secures the bag to your body when you're on the move, which makes the Imago a great bag to use when you're riding a bike (push or motor).
For an extra $15.00, you can upgrade from the Standard Shoulder Strap to the Q-AM (Quick-Adjust Messenger) Shoulder Strap. Or, for an extra $20.00, you get the Absolute Shoulder Strap instead of the Standard Shoulder Strap. Click here for descriptions of the three types of shoulder straps. Most people will be satisfied with just one kind of shoulder strap, but, should you choose to do so, you can purchase more than one kind and switch between them.
Size-wise, the Imago falls between our Large Cafe Bag and our ID messenger bag. The main compartment can fit an 11" MacBook Air in a Size Air11 Cache, a spiral-bound notebook, a medium-size book, a light wind/rain shell, and your lunch. The Imago can fit other small laptops, such as the 13" MacBook Air or even the 13" MacBook Pro. To determine if the Imago can fit your laptop and, if so, what size of Brain Cell or Cache you would need, please consult our Laptop Bag Fit Guide.
