First post! Have been a lurker for some time and am pleased to be adding to the forum.
Just broke down and spent some of my fantasy football championship winnings to purchase a tan 256 briefcase with a handgrip from Hilton's Tent City. Got 15% off. Think it will so well with my small tan duffle (220).
Plan to use the 256 as my everyday bag commuting in to NYC from CT on the train. I usually leave my laptop in the office so it'll hold my kindle, an umbrella, a black and red notebook, my Field Notes notebook, a manila folder of papers, pens, business cards, a piece of fruit, my iPad...and on the train ride home my empty coffee tumbler. Looks like it should also hold my laptop on the days I need to bring it home.
Now I can't wait to get it and start breaking it in.
