I'm a big Tom Bihn fan... I have a Med. Cafe bag Sm. Cafe Bag, Imago, and Smart Alec w/a Brain Cell...
heh I just realized how much moolah that has cost me over the years... but it's definitely been worth it
So I'm in the market for a new laptop bag for work, so of course I want another TB. The Smart Alec isn't professional enough for my office, and the Imago is too small for my 15.4" laptop...
So I'm trying to decide (sight unseen) between a ID, Zephyr, or Empire Builder... on my daily slog I'll have the laptop in a Brain Cell or Cache, a Franklin Covey classic size binder (9.4" by 7.6"), portable hard drive, wallet, cell phone, and assorted pens and other such stuff. I'd also like to have enough room to put in several folders, clipboard, and possibly a book if I need to.
I know this will all fit in the Empire Builder, but I'm thinking it's a bit overkill for what I need. I'm also only 5'4" with a medium build, so I don't want to look like I'm overpowered by my bag.
I'm kinda leaning toward an ID, but I'm not sure it will be big enough. I think the Zephyr would work also, but if the ID is big enough then I think I'd rather go that way.
Can anyone offer any advice? I'm most concerned about my Franklin Covey Planner taking up so much space in the ID (it's not that wide or long but it's pretty thick) that once the laptop is in play, there won't be much room for anything else.
Thanks so much
