I know this is a terrible place to ask, but; I was looking at the
Calabrese 1924 Weekender bag
Chapman Sten holdall
and saw they were about the same size. Are they are redundant (and I should only buy one), or do they serve different purposes?
Here's the Chapman being used as a backpack after I got stuck carrying it around for 5 hours. I really like the bag and have gotten a lot of use out of it. I'd use the Calabrese if I needed quick access to a few different things since the Chapman only offers one separate pocket with quick access. You can't see them, but I'm also carrying two rain jackets under the top flap of the Chapman, which is useful for me.
