    Got mine today, and I'm pretty stoked about it.

    Have to test out the theory that the strap it came with is way too short for me to use it properly by taking it for a spin tomorrow. This is a common complaint of most bags I buy though, and nothing a trip to the army/navy store can't fix for this one I think. Being a rather large individual, with a long torso on top of my portly stature, and liking to wear my bag at hip height causes problems. Strap seems to be a good foot and a half to two feet two short.

    Otherwise it's freaking awesome.

    This seems to be a test run, hopefully they will do some more later.

    HP Pavilion 17", with room to spare for all the stuff I use. Charger for computer/phone/palm, various connection cables, 50' ethernet cable, backup lacie hard drive, and a couple manuals etc to boot. Surprisingly roomy in there.

    Just found the tattoos. I'm gonna have to put them all on tonight, cause if my kids see them, its all over.

    Photo of you with the tattoos & bag would be awesome!

    oh boo, pencil slots and not a funcky pair of pockets on the outer pouch, ah well...
    No, no sucking up to Internet Jesus here... never. >_>

    And even with all that in the bag, my camera, DS, and PSP all fit in the pouch comfortably, and there's still a few inches on the end for cans of Red Bull or whatnot, plus just enough room to squeeze in the tripod and an umbrella up top. Huzzah!

    Should be getting my camera back tomorrow. My niece is trying to join the 6th grade school newspaper and had to take some shots for a collage. Thought it was a good cause, and really didn't expect it to get here this quick. Posting as soon as I get it back.

    I must add that it was like a birthday coming home from a horrible day today! One of those jobs where everything goes wrong, I was still in the customer's house as they were getting kids ready for bed, with an hour and a half still to drive home. So this was (and I know this sounds a little overblown) probably the highlight of the day. Actually, the last two weeks or so, but who's counting. It worked. I'm ready for a new day tomorrow, well equipped.

    Post it when you can, the thread will be here. Sometimes, it's the unexpected things that make our day.

    Got mine today as well. Absolutely awesome. Never had/worn a bag like this, but I don't have a car and loathe wearing a backpack under the California sun so I figured if I'm gonna become a bag type of a guy, might as well have one as cool as this one. So far I'm loving it.

    ... my god... WHERE IS MY BAG! >_<

    I want it now. :(

    Mine is probably going to be coming late because of the website not getting my credit card number until later. >.o

    @alastair, yeah, mine needs to come to scotland as well. hoping they can get it through the letter box! rather than having to get to PO to collect.

    as for availability, i got impression that while it was a trial run, there wasn't an intention to make more?

    Had mine waiting at home for me last night when I returned from work...after taking a small detour to pick up the Gravel hardcover (as well as Strangehaven: Conspiracies and the two latest DMZ trades.) All this, despite giving notice at the job two days ago. Ha ha! I shall starve, but I'll have plenty of reading material and a handsome bag in which to carry it as I go shambling down the street, begging for loose change and spewing profanity at the unforgiving sky.

    @pi8you -You've got an amazing ability to take the photos I wanted to. Lovely flooring, btw. Reminds me of my mom's house. :D
    Took the bag out for a walk today; already planning some (FOR SHAME) modifications because I'm not wholly content with the color... Still can't find the chord to hook up my celly to the pc to port photos I took of it in the coffeeshop....
    Bag seems sturdy. Might have to give it a coating of waterproofing when I'm done mutilating--er I mean...undying and re-dying parts.

    Might have to give it a coating of waterproofing

    Good idea!
