I am looking for a new backpack and I am curious about the Western Flyer. Is it suitable for use primarily as a backpack or would I be better off with a proper backpack? I walk 20+ blocks a day with my current backpack, a free Ogio Metro. I used to carry a Filson padded computer bag but it was too heavy and I found using a backpack was much more comfortable.
I regularly carry a 14" Thinkpad, an ipad air, a liter of water and a pair of leather soled shoes with shoe trees.
I like the idea of a cross between my Filson and my Ogio but if a proper backpack would be more comfortable for me then I will skip the WF.
Thank you in advance!
