New Laptop Bag Recommendations
I had a large Timbuk2 classic messager bag for 4-5 years that worked out pretty well for me. It was the large size, with a laptop compartment that would fit a 17" laptop. I only had a 13" Macbook Pro, for most of the time but I took advantage of the large size to carry other stuff frequently. The only downside was the lack of organization. Other than the laptop sleeve, there was basically just one big pouch. Sadly, this weekend the bad got stolen so I am looking for a new bag.
I am looking for a bag that will be comfortable for a 5-10 mile bicycle commute but also functional in a semi-professional setting (business casual dress code). It needs to hold a 13" laptop but the higher the capacity for other stuff the better. I ride all year in Seattle so water resistance is a plus but I could work around it for the right bag.
I tried googling for reviews but it seems like SEO has obfuscated the great reviews and comparisons. If you have had a good experience with your bag let me know or if you know of a site with great research/comparisons let me know.
