    Hmmm, 40L seems to be huge, 20L probably a bit small, so at least I know now I ned to look at maybe high 20's for size.

    I've got one of these which hasn't worked out for me (I think the clothes storage claims are for people who don't wear high heels or require make up to look human).

    Need to get rid of it really, offers accepted and all that

    I've got a Swissgear. Had it for years. Highly recommended.

    Yes, but in all fairness, I doubt that is going to do much for Simon Mac's street cred in Yorkshire.

    Next project is a train commute away so I too was looking at laptop backpacks, just could not find anything that fitted the size / style I wanted.

    So I have designed one; itís currently in mid construction, parts cut, need to do some dye samples to get the colour I want.

    Suede & leather combo with contrasting colours & stitching, with laptop compartment, space for handbag, lunch bag & book, and separate compartments for travel card, water bottle & smokes. Hardware in antique bronze colour, brown suede, leather parts colour TBC with Celtic knot engraving.

    This way I get what I want & itís unique.

    Yes I do, do commissions but itís not cheap; a decent leather laptop bag is c£500 & will take 4-6 weeks.
