Empire Bag - First Impressions
My Empire Bag arrived today and I am loading it up to take to the office tomorrow. My very first impression is very positive. The Empire Bag holds a lot more than I thought. It does not hold as much as the Brain Bag -- which is huge -- but holds much more than the typical brief case.
What I like immediately is being able to keep the bag on the passenger seat while I am driving and still have easy access to my cell phone or a note pad or other items that I want to get to quickly.
The bag is obviously well made. The handles are soft and comfortable.
I also could get my medium size cafe bag in the Empire Bag (sideways) no problem. I frequently take the cafe bag with me when I go to lunch so I like to pack a bag within a bag along with my laptop. I don't need a big bag with me at lunch. My cafe bag is an almost constant companion. It is with me almost daily.
The strap I see is made by Optech. My hobby is photography and Optech straps make cameras feel half as light as they really are.
I'll post more as I have more experience with the bag.
