I'm trying to downsize my daily office carry, and I'm hoping to get some guidance here! I love my brain bag, but I find it to be a bit too big for my daily needs. I'm also looking for something specifically for the professional environment. He's my daily gear:
- Lenovo think pad t410
- assorted organizer pouches w/ sundries (chargers & such)
- camelback water bottle & travel coffee mug
The challenge for me is that I am trying to be careful about overall weight (back/shoulder strain issues), and I'm having a tough time finding a backpack-style bag that has that professional look. I've been eyeing up the Zephyr (I'm afraid I'll overstuff an empire builder), but the cadet looks like it might be a good streamlined choice as well. Not sure about capacity for a water bottle in either of these, though.
What say you, gang? Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
