What's in your bag? is a recurring feature where we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. Show us your bag in this forum post. This week, we're featuring Thomas Ricker.

I've had a love affair with computer bags for more than fifteen years now. A fixation betrayed by a dozen or so unused bags, each loved intensely for a time, then tossed to the side of the road like a sex crime, abandoned in favor of another.

My hauling needs have stabilized over the last two years allowing me to settle on just two bags: one that I use for everyday bicycling through Amsterdam, another for professional press events and travel. Preferences honed by nomadism and an obsessive avoidance of girth.
