    I am taking my stuff to a medical office not a warzone. How durable does it have to be? I know we discussed over engineering in the car thread but it seems to apply here too.


    Eh, I bring mine on both personal and work trips and I like a bag that holds up well and looks better with time. It's not too formal to look weird casually but good enough to work in a more formal environment. I've definitely had a fair share of bags over the years that have broken zippers, torn fabrics, ripped straps, etc.  I don't think you can really over engineer a zipper. It's either solid and durable or it's cheap and more likely to snap. Work gave me a Sierra backpack for Doctor's Day, it's a nice pack but the zipper broke within a handful of uses. Maybe I'm harder on my bags than you.

      I am quite gentle with my stuff.  My kids on the other hand...

      I am all for durable stuff at a reasonable price.  I feel that some items are marketed to be able to withstand way more then they ever will be asked too.  And some people will pay out the nose for a backpack that can stop a bullet.

        its a messenger bag. bought it new 9 years ago for 107. at the time was a crazy amount to spend.

        its still my daily bag through med school, residency, work, all airplane trips, multiple states/countries, etc.

        ranks in the top 10 of single best purchases ever made.

          Here is what I use:

          https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07MSG2VS8?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

          I have only had it a few months, so I can’t comment on durability. However, it is a very nice bag for the price. It was $120 on Amazon when I bought it.

              Backpack. My laptop goes everywhere with me. Room for other computer equipment and as many documents as I care to carry. Got it at REI, I think, years ago. Looks like it will last me forever.

              Functional appearance. Not trying to impress anyone.
              Briefcase would be a hassle and not offer as much protection for the laptop.

                Looks like justice Ginsburg is a backpack person just like Fatlittlepig.
