The Brain Bag from Tom Bihn is one of those lifelong companion bags — built to last for decades to come and designed with enough pockets and organization to be your constant helper, once you go brain it’s hard to go back.
- Excellent materials
- Very functional front panel pocket setup.
- Two large internal compartments.
- Accessories that are killer for this bag: the laptop cache and the freudian slip.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The Blink & Wander packs from Timbuk2 are tough, rigid little numbers for travel with unfortunately weak feeling zippers.
The Homebase series from Tortuga features this incredibly lightweight sailcloth material that's water resistant and super strong. (It feels light and scary! But it's damn strong stuff.) This makes for an incredibly light and resilient travel bag.
A very innovative backpack for either large daily carry or serious travelers who need one bag for both travel and daily carry. This is a winner for me in the medium size 1-bag travel category.
I love how functional a solid rolltop bag can be, and this is one of my favorite rolltop bags.
The X25 from RiutBag is an utterly functional travel and daily conversion backpack that also has an important security feature.
