    Default What is your choice of bag for your tech when you travel?

    I don't travel really but I may be traveling to California for a few days later this year and just looking for a decent bag. I was looking at the Field Bag View for iPad Air by Incase. It's decent size and has an integrated ipad case/holder. I won't have much with me besides iPad, cables, charging brick, battery power back headphones etc.

    Basically just interested what others maybe using! I tend to enjoy reading those "What's in my bag" articles, why? Idk lol.

    This may be more than you need, but this is what I carry with me. Swiss Army Knife computer backpack. Room for all my cables, laptop, iPad and "unmetionables" that I pack on my carry on. Been stuck in airports once too many times.

    I use a Timbuk2 Commuter for work and short getaways. Enough room to throw in all my mobile devices and MacBook Air, along with all my work related stuff and even a water bottle or 2.

    I have a Timbuk2 messenger that I use for carrying my laptop, and basically everything I need to get through the day, tech-wise.

    There are many good options, but you first have to decide whether you like a messenger bag or backpack. Personally, I like having a backpack because 1) I can fit more stuff into it and 2) I like having 2 straps to carry it on both shoulders when changing terminals. However, the messenger bag tends to look a bit more professional for work settings.

    I have to vouch for the Timbuk2 classic messenger bag, it's served me well on travels from Toronto to the States and what have you. It holds business cards, iPad,macbook air and everything else I need for the day at the airport and it is very durable.

    That one is very professional-looking. However, most don't carry backpacks like that.

    I'm not sure if this is the exact same Wenger Swiss Gear backpack, but Newegg has it on sale for 4th July for $29.99. You probably need to sign up for their newsletter to get that price with promo code: EMCPCPW59. Without the promo code it is on sale for $45 (from $80).

    Code doesn’t work. Price with code applied is still $44.99 plus shipping.

    Code was in an email I got from them. It's possible it was personalized although it didn't say so. Just said that you had to be signed up for their newsletters (i.e., advertising emails).

    I have a Altego Channel Stitched Ruby 17" Laptop Backpack. When I bought it a few years ago it was $70-$80 but Amazon has it for $50. It's pretty amazing. Keeps my MacBook in the back, it's all padded and the iPad slot inside is also padded. It's very nice and light even though the MacBook is heavy. Lol
