One strap back pack, preferably leather

I am due a new handbag, and trying to get healthy by walking into town. I own a one strap ergonomic bag, but it came from the Cadbury shop, and is bright purple with the Cadbury logo on it. It's not a discreet logo either... I was hoping to get a nice leather one, but not too spendy. Anybody got one, or can point me in the right direction please? TIA

Does no-one have a nice ergonomic bag? <cries>

I've had "the healthy back bag" I know they do leather but might be expensive.

Healthy back bags are great. They are really comfortable - they sort of nestle in the small of your back and are brilliantly ergonomic, so for example, the zip fastening is always towards your back whichever way you wear it so they are secure, but you can also get into them really easily without taking them off. And the internal and external pockets are really well designed. The leather version is a bit spendy at £129 (this is a small size which still holds a lot, the medium which holds as much as my huge tote bag is £150). There are other materials available ranging from the very utilitarian looking to more colourful versions - I like the Donegal tweed ones.

Can anyone tell me if you can get a 13" laptop into the healthy back bags?

I have a Victorinox single strap backpack that is great. Holds a laptop and is untamperable as the zip part folds over. Looks smart but isn't leather.

shove you can if you get a large size - the medium will hold a tablet and you can get ones that have a fleece-lined pocket to protect it.

They also do a messenger style bag which might be better for laptops.

Thanks outtogetyou - it looks like the large only holds an ipad too, unfortunately! sad

Sorry, was on the phone before so couldn't search for a link - it's this one and it definitely holds a laptop because that is what I use it for, I don't even own a tablet - though admittedly it's a smaller type laptop, 15" I expect (Yoga).

Not cheap though (was bought in the US for me).

Oooh, I like that a lot! Am wondering if I could get all my stuff in it... I currently have one of the Fjallraven backpacks which is pretty full on a daily basis! I do tend to lug the kitchen sink around with me smile But I walk a LOT so important that I have something that doesn't cause aches and pains after a while.

Currently salivating over chilli-red leather healthy back bag....;)

So, now own the chilli-red one. Stroking it and murmuring sweet nothings to it as I type one-handed. Tis a lovely thing, with many pockets if I use all of them I'll forget what's in them DP has given me a wedge towards it for Valentines and looking after him so well (after a fashion) after his recent leg op. smile
