Hello everyone. I've been stalking the forums for a couple weeks and now I need some advice. I originally posted this in the S19/S25 thread here, but didn't want to hijack someone else's conversation.
After 2+ weeks of research and comparison, I decided to buy a Navy / Iberian S25. It arrived today and I am stoked. I filled it up with just about anything I could think I'll need to take to / from work, and I'm afraid to say that I don't come close to filling the pack. Now, I'm not a real tall guy. About 5'8" with a normal build. The S25 feels pretty huge. I'm wondering if I should buy an S19 and compare, or if I'll grow into the S25. I'm stuck.
Just for some background... I just got a new job that will involve commuting via public transport. I'll need to pack a laptop, keys, Kindle, a couple of moleskine notebooks, water bottle, lunch, other odds and ends. I went with the S25 over the S19 because I thought the S19 wouldn't have enough space for me to pack a pair of gym clothes and sneakers along with my other junk. Well, it seems I could fit all my junk and a weekend's worth of clothes, which may be just a bit too big for my every day use.
I'd love some of your personal perspectives. What do you think?
