Does anyone have and can recommend a smart rucksack? I am on the trains a lot and need laptop, water, shoes etc with me. Currently use a nice roomy Jasper Conran/Tripp bag with a shoulder strap but it's heavy (because I cart a lot of stuff around with me) and I'm not sure it's doing my shoulders much good.
I second Knomo backpacks - I can fit laptop, water, change of clothing, note book etc in mine, gets heavy use and still looks smart even though it is one of their less expensive fabric type ones rather than the full leather.
I have a pretty cheap one, but black with turquoise lining, plenty big enough and padded to hold laptop, and smart (several people have asked where I got it). Its lasted 3 years and counting.. Will try to find what it was...
I just use a osprey backpack. Husband has a north face one. Both black, fairly inconspicuous, dedicated laptop sleeve, spacious and can fit under an airline seat. I could do a short business trip or longer casual trip with mine but it’s not bulky
I have a Fossil backpack in cognac leather. I wear it to ride to work with my laptop and take on work trips regularly. It's great, stylish, roomy but not bulky and easily fits a Macbook, notepad and a Kindle plus all the other bits I cart around with me.
I use this this as my work bag, hand luggage for traveling, any time I can justify using it. I have it in grey and it's really comfy. Doesn't have a waterproof cover unlike some of the other Mont Blanc ones though, but Where i live I get probably 5-6 days of a rain a year so doesn't matter
My knomo one finally looked trashed after 9 years - it was awesome.
