"I wanted to be able to carry my MBA and an iPad, a moelskine notebook, a magazine or two – some small accessories and power supplies. I wanted to lighten up – work for the 80/20 rule instead of trying to pack for every scenario when I travel or go tot a friends house to collaborate on a project. Basically I was and am tired of carrying everything I own everywhere I go."
Excerpt: "So after a lot of thought, too much thought , I plunked down my money and ordered the Tom Bihn Ristretto. Of course as soon as I ordered it they were back ordered for a few weeks.

I had to travel in about 2.5 weeks so there should be plenty of time."
