Hi, I've been lurking a while, and would appreciate some advice. I'm leaning towards an Ego, but I still can't get a sense of whether or not it will fit my stuff. Here's a photo, and a run down of my daily EDC, which is currently carried in a Patagonia briefcase:
- Macbook 13"
- Small moleskine
- Small pouch w/ toiletries, etc
- Pens, chapstick, headphones
- Papers in file folder
- Case for sunglasses
- Lunch (includes a 6x6" ziplock container, plus more) in BuiltNY bag
- Water bottle (1l sigg)
- Tissues, etc
- Winter hat, gloves, in mesh pouch (summer EDC will swap for small windbreaker)
- Maxpedition EDC (pretty stuffed)
- First aid kit
In the summer, I would add an umbrella (v-nox).
My main concern is my lunch, the containers we use are pretty wide and with the laptop, it doesn't look like it would fit. I definitely want a messenger bag, and not a briefcase or backpack (which I am pretty sure all this would be an easy fit for either....) I just don't like carrying a backpack for work, and while I carry the bag I have today like a messenger bag, it's really not that comfortable. (And the over one shoulder thing just doesn't work for me, falls off...)
I can fit all this in my old timbku2 messenger bag, but it's just one big bag with no organization, and with the laptop, it's really not usable.
Will this fit an Ego? The dimensions on the current bag are: 16" x 13.5" x 6.5".
Super Ego seems way too big for me.
Thanks in advance!
