    Looking for some suggestions for a large, durable, but still stylish bag for a frequent flyer.

    I generally carry two laptops (one personal/one business), plus some other gadgets, chargers, documents, and a few other miscellaneous items. I was thinking of the filson 258 or maybe a Tumi-- something in that vein. Would love to hear some suggestions. My price range is probably up to around 350, but I'd be open to spending more for the right bag.

    Thoughts?

    Tumis are very nice. Can't go wrong with them. Folks over on flyertalk can definitely help you with that for sure.

    tumi is nowwhere near as sturdy as they used to be, tumi is better for tourists than serious fliers.


    briggs and riley is the way to go.

    I have two briggs and riley roll on briefcases - catalogue case and large leather breifcase. I wouldn't go with leather again, but the design is good. both would hold two laptops and a bunch of other stuff.

    Dang, can't believe I forgot about them. Also, redoxx are pretty good as well.

    Thanks for the valuable opinions guys. I have been looking at Redoxx- seen a few of them around and they look like possibly a good, low cost, option. I'll update you if and when I buy something.

    I think the obvious answer is to have a piece commissioned at Hermes
