I'll be receiving a briefcase as a tenure award soon, and have been allowed to choose pretty much whatever I want, with these restrictions:
- Must look like a briefcase or messenger bag. No backpacks.
- Maximum price is $175 US
Here are my personal requirements:
- Needs to be very sturdy
- Needs to hold a 17" laptop and power adapter
- Needs to have room for a 20D, two or three lenses, flash, various accessories, and storage
- Needs to be inconspicuous.
What would you recommend? It certainly doesn't have to be one of these bags, as I'm going by online information only (too darned hard to get to a camera shop when they're open with my work schedule).
Also, please remember that the price and appearance restrictions are NOT negotiable.
