Trip Prep 13: The {almost} perfect bag!!

June 24, 2011 | 1 Comment

Ok… I know I am a hopeless case… not only because I am up late sketching after my mega 3 day adventure to Melbourne (very loose sketch this one!) but also because, after making the decision as to which bag I was going to take, I happen to randomly stumble on another bag… and buy it. In the rating system of last week it does very well. But it is not perfect. Should I have bought it?…or should I just wait to find the perfect bag?

After 3 days testing it, I thought it was important to record my initial thoughts.

In general it works fairly well and I think that it will be a great work and sketching bag but I do need to test it on a all day sketching outing to properly assess it.

The biggest issues are:

  • the thin strap (amazing how much better a wide strap is),
  • the fact that I have to open the main flap to access sketchbook and any pen
  • and the fact that it is a satchel-type. I want a dressier handbag look (which can be smart casual or dressy enough for evening) and a satchel is a bit too ‘business’ looking.
