Returning to work after 8 years being a SAHM.

Back to the city on the train. I’d like a smart rucksack that can hold water bottle, book etc etc

I’ve narrowed it down to these brands. All online though so I’ve not actually seen.

Looking at Knowmo myself, lurking for further knowledge

I’m so tempted by the Sandqvist Hege

I have a Knomo and it's great, would recommend

Which one?

I have the Knomo Beauchamp in dark green for work/commuting, it’s great. Good size for my laptop, notebook etc, plenty of pockets for phone, travelcard, keys and space for water bottle as well

Thank you! Enough space for pair of shoes?

I returned the beauchamp as though it looked lovely and was compact I struggled to fit in laptop, shoes, water, lunch and then get anything out of it easily. I got the Beaufort instead which is lovely but inevitably bulkier.

@Caribbeanyesplease Yes, I think so but you might have to sacrifice some other bits to get the shoes in, depending on how bulky they are. Flats, flip flops etc should be fine, trainers or heels might be more difficult
