Curious to hear what other designers are using as their everyday carry bags, and what someone might recommend?
Been carrying Timbuk2 bags for 10 years now, and while I do like them overall, I've got some nitpicks that annoy me and am looking to change things up. I find they favor right handed usage in their design (for some reason I wear a bag like a lefty), and find they get bulky too easily instead of compartmentalizing storage. Currently carrying 2012 Comand 2.0 (2012 version). Also thinking a backpack would give me more comfortable use during travel and at shows, though I tend to like a messenger for everyday.
Here's my EDC, note no laptop or tablet. I'll usually have a lunch in there too. My laptop is too large to tote on a regular basis, and the tablet only comes with me during travel.
Thinking of getting the Peak Design Everyday Backpack 20L. Only concerns is that there's no good way for document toting, and limited writing utensil and the like storage. Love the fact that it could take my DSLR when needed, and moves small item storage to the side rather than bulking up the front (an issue I commonly have with Timbuk2).
