You want something that is going to be comfortable to carry once it gets full of things. Look for a wide strap, possibly with padding.

Good point, koahiatamadl. I do bring lunch to work. But I’m OK with two bags. It’s two bags (lunch and purse) plus a half dozen other loose things that’s too much.

I really like the look of those Queenbee official canada goose outlet bags and the price radioamy. It looks like they’re available all over Portland, so I think I’ll start by checking them out around town and seeing how they look.

Thanks, you two. I’m disappointed not to have more answers, but maybe I should have been more strategic and posted on a week day.

I’ve recently become a huge fan of Red Oxx products. One of the most attractive aspects is their Forever Unconditional warantee. The tag that comes on the bag says “remember to put this bag in your will”. They’re a little “expedition” looking, but I don’t know your tastes so give them a look. Lots of colors available. I have the plain black Slimline briefcase, which has a red interior, lots of organizer pockets, and is industrial strength.

And I agree with an earlier poster that the shoulder strap is important, and Red Oxx makes my favorite strap ever, The Claw. It is included with all of their bags, or if you canada goose factory outlet buy a different bag that doesn’t have https://www.fcvfrankfurt.de

a good strap, try theirs for $20.

Franklin Covey makes a variety of really gorgeous bags you might want to take a look at. At least if you’re like me and had some distaste for the plain square briefcase look. The Franklin Covey bags are sturdy and over the past few years have become increasingly stylish.
