Okay, so I ordered a new Aubergrine Side Effect, which came in my Alamo-decorated box (see my other thread.)
Upon opening the box I was struck by how sturdy the Side Effect seemed. And how unassuming it seemed.
I opened it up to reveal the Wasabi interior
Now I bought the Side Effect so it could act as a portable purse-- one that would hold my stuff when I did not need a larger bag. Mostly for travel and for work- I figured I could throw the Side Effect into my work laptop case (which I pln to replace soon with a Synapse 25) and be carrying one less bag. So when I need my things I can just pull it out and drop it in the canvas bag that I use for class, or so I could contain my personal stuff while traveling. So here's the stuff that will regularily go into the Side Effect.
My Wallet (which I attach with a key strap), phone, business cards, checkbook, pen, lipstick and lip balm, a snack bar, Epi-Pen, pack of Kleenex and my trusty bottle of Tylenol (its allergy season, okay)
Here it is with everything stuffed in it (The Epi-Pen is at the bottom)
My keys fit handily in the front pocket, where there is an o-ring to attach them to.
Everything fits well- I plan to use it more as a purse, and I took a picture of that-- I will add it as a reply since it says I have maxed out my attachments per post-quota, but overall, I really love it. It looks nicer and neater than I expected, and it balances nicely too-- especially when stuffed.
