    Its far easier to split your need and have an ultra small day case that has no space for unnecessary
    crap like 4 million cables and chargers. then have a small overnight bag that will cover 3 days of shirts etc. that way you only have to carry loads of crap when you arrive or leave.

    So glad I pay 100 a week for Monday to Thursday lodgings, where I can leave stuff in my room over the weekend, park right outside and drive door to door between there and clientco and home, so I needn't bother with all this bag nonsense.

    Can't see why one would worry about the bag design, especially if someone else carry's it for one anyway

    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 & its unique.

    Yes I do, do commissions but its not cheap; a decent leather laptop bag is c500 & will take 4-6 weeks.
    Sounds fab, needs pics when its done!

    I took a walk Oxford Street and was impressed with these guys Sandqvist, although they only had the smaller version in stock, but they do a 22l and a 27l which should do the job, in both looks and function.

    Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

    I have one a bit like this one:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ogio-Master...gio+laptop+bag



    Has lasted me three years. 15" laptop, ipad, leads and a load of main storge space which I hardly ever use but could easily fit a days worth of clothes in. 36L.

    Why not go retro and get a good old 1970s haversack?

    It is way too small, quite a bad buy tbh. I can pack light but it's full with two dresses and a pair of heels. Not acceptable.
