This post is in response to the question regarding the size of the Original Briefcase for daily use.
I work in sales and need to make sure that I'm always prepared while in the field. In my bag right now I have:
A 15" laptop
BlackBerry Playbook tablet
BlackBerry Bold phone
A 1"-thick catalog from one of my vendors
My field Journal (5"x8" notepad to jot notes down throughout the day)
My 10"x13" portfolio
A deck of cards
A stack of post-it notes
3 pens, a sharpie, a hi-liter
A can of almonds
And probably some other junk that I'm not aware of.
I walk around downtown Seattle every day with this bag and, although it's not as large as their laptop bag or padded computer bag, I'm not at a lack for space. It fits everything I need and it's not large enough to be a hindrance or uncomfortable to tote around.
I also travel alot and this, along with a small Filson duffle, will be sufficient for a full week on the road
I've included a picture of said bag containing all of the items listed above.
And a picture of how UNbulky it is once packed up.
