Synapse 19 or Smart Alec for daily work bag?
I've been using the Imago as my daily work bag - I love it but its too small if I want to carry more work papers, magazines, my 13 inch MacBook Pro, ipad, a sweater, small make up bag, etc. I prefer messenger bags but if I put all of that in a larger messenger bag it will be too heavy for me so I am looking to purchase a backpack. It has to be black (so sadly no cool Dyneema exterior for me) as I work in a fairly conservative and formal environment. I'm hesitating between the Synapse 19 and the Smart Alec. Will the fabric of the Synapse collect lint? Will the Smart Alec be too big for me for daily use (I am a slim 5'4" woman)? By the way, I love the look of the Brain Bag but I'm assuming this will be too large as a daily work bag? Your advice would be much appreciated. The problem is that all the bags look so great I have trouble choosing! Thanks for your help
