Just thought I'd revive this thread:
I shared an email exchange with Alan about a week ago. He had put me on the custom bag list a while back and I was checking in to see the status. He has me slated for third week in September and he said he will be getting back to me soon to discuss details....
So, any suggestions from the group? I have a small stature, and I want something that fits my proportions well (5'3" 136 lbs). I was thinking of having the bag be just around 13" in width, maybe 4" in depth, and around 10" in height (give or take). Any thoughts on this? I do not carry much on a daily basis. At most a small pad, maybe some files for work (usually I limit what I lug around for work), umbrella, ipad, maybe a book, newspaper, etc. I do have a larger bag at my disposal for the situations that call for lugging extra materials.
I was thinking of doing a quick access pocket in the back like the OP (to shove stuff in on the train and such), maybe key hook in the center divider as well as pen holders.
I'd love to see some pics of the bags Alan made for everyone else to get some ideas!!
