The History

It has been years since I used a backpack but I remember those days well carrying all my books to school as well as a myriad of other items that I might need for the day. Over time I guess I felt that I didn’t need one and chose to carry my books under my arm like many of the students but it was often difficult to juggle all that needed to be carried. Eventually, I migrated to a brief case in my professional life where again I was able to “stuff” most of the gear I needed as well as a variety of folders.

When I got my first laptop I was able to carry it in my briefcase but in time I got a padded laptop case to protect my laptop so I ended up carrying my briefcase and laptop bag. I guess it was OK; I was sort of used to it and I never had to go too far from my parking space to my office. It just became a routine to pack both bags although there were times I found it too much.

With the change in my lifestyle over the past few years, the need for a briefcase was gone so I was finally back to carrying one bag on my journeys and of course I would add an iPAQ (or two) to the bag as well as an assortment of chargers and cables. But then I added a Tablet PC to my collection, a new camera, a PSP and a few more devices and all of a sudden I had three separate bags that contained all my gear. It was beginning to be a pain when I started to pack for a trip.

My last trip to Seattle was when I decided that I needed a change. When I left Boston, I had my luggage bag, a laptop bag and a second shoulder bag containing everything I wanted and even though I was able to get rid of the luggage right away at the check-in counter, walking around the airport carrying two bags with my gear was getting “old” real quick.

The Search

I started looking around to see what others were doing and I was surprised at the number of folks doing what I was but I was even more surprised at the number of folks carrying backpacks. It just made sense! Have a bag large enough to carry what you need and carry it on your back leaving your hands free. So it was then that I decided to start the search for the right backpack. In fact I looked at a couple of bags that were in a shop at the airport but they just did not strike my fancy. One was too small and the other looked like a “kids” bag.

I think the over-riding issue for me in my search for a bag was that I wanted the versatility of a backpack but I definitely did not want to have a backpack that was a “kids” bag. I wanted something that was professional and yet something that would provide me with all the benefits of a “regular” backpack. I spent quite a bit of time looking in local stores that have carry bags but none of them caught my fancy. There were a few that looked good but did not have the right number of pockets. There were a few ...
