I’m looking for a new back pack. I currently have a Timbuk2 bag that is nice and roomy, but doesn’t have a lot of pockets. It was great for school, when I had to carry textbooks, notebooks and such, but not that great for carrying a bunch of small things (and a laptop).
Some things I like about my current bag:
- It has a side zipper so that I can easily access my laptop
- The top flap is waterproof
Things that I currently carry:
- Surface with case and type cover
- Two small flashlights
- Small notebook
- Console cable
- A couple of Cat7 cables (3", flat)
- Surface charger and power cord
- USB --> Ethernet adapter
- Small toolkit, I think it’s about 5" x 8"
- Mr. 7 Hands (it’s 7 screwdrivers in 1!)
- Extra pens + Surface pen
- MiniDisplayPort adapter
The waterproof flap is optional. The side zipper is also optional, but I really like it.
