Ok… I am having fun and being a little over analytical …but it was a very interesting exercise!
The big challenge for me is to find a bag that is lightweight, practical (good pockets), neutral colour to go with everything, robust and ‘smart’ – adjust the cross-body strap to over the shoulder and look nice in the evening or going to church etc. And ultimately when not travelling, I would use this bag during the week for work as well as weekend ie. all the time!
And until I find the perfect bag I will continue to have fun sketching and analysing the imperfect ones that I have purchased.
