Hey fellow TB lovers, I didn't see a Recommend Me a Bag thread so I hope this is ok.
Im looking for a business casual bag along the lines of a briefcase.
The ones I have it narrowed down to are the
and maybe the new pilot bag coming out soon which i can't wait to see but hear may be a bigger CP?
I will be using this bag mostly for every day carry. I do travel, and commuting is a large part of my day. So, I will be putting in this bag some necessary and some unnecessary items such as:
Macbook Pro Retina 13 inch
Usually 1 text book
Notebook or two
All sorts of pens, pencils, school supplies
Macbook charger, magic mouse, extra extension cord
My toys such as my flashlight, or two, pocket knife or two, smart charger for my flashlight batteries, and hey just for fun I would like to be able to possibly fit a light sweater, and even my new flashlight, the very large Fenix TK 75.
And of course any other little odds and ends that Im forgetting right now.
I love to be able to carry all the stuff I like to have on me in this bag every day, and of course when going through the airport I won't be bringing my knife. But, again I don't want to be the messenger bag guy anymore, I need to go up to business casual/even a bit formal on occasion. So, since you guys share the same love for bags as me, how about telling me your recommendations, and why or why not you would go with any of these bags, and if I am forgetting any.
I love the Founders Briefcase with the small little pockets everywhere for my cool knives, gadgets, flashlights, etc.
And, i love the Western Flyer a lot with the more business looking briefcase feel I guess.
I also like some other bags like
the empire builder(although I fear it will be way to bulky for everyday carry to meetings, class, and work while walking)
and the Cadet(although feel this may be a bit too slimline and more of a laptop case than a bag for all my daily needs)
So, any and all suggestions and opinions are very welcome, I look forward to seeing what you guys feel and recommend for a semi-professional business casual guy like myself!
