I had to travel to Colorado Springs, Colorado for work. I decided to carry my Brain Bag and a small daypack to hold my work computer. It all went so well. I could have carried everything in the Brain Bag but my work computer weights a ton. Pictures:

When traveling with two backpacks how do you carry them? I have considered using my Brain Bag along with the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag but not the Brain Bag and my Synapse together.

hi eire,

you can carry two backpacks - one in the front, and one in the back. but it might prove a bit challenging for an extended period of time.

a backpack on your back, and a messenger style bag worn cross body in the front may prove more practical. depending on your size and what you need to carry in the messenger style bag, this could be the id messenger bag or one of the cafe bags. the ego or super ego may be a bit on the big side for wearing cross body in the front. but all of that also depends on your size and what you feel comfortable carrying.

i have many times carried an aeronaut worn as a backpack on my back, and a small or medium cafe bag worn cross body in the front, and it works out great!

Hope you could see Pikes Peak through all the smoke from the Ft Collins fire. June is a great month to visit Colorado Springs.

I carry the small backpack shoulder straps over my arm like a purse with the bottom pointed behind me. This pack is really small! I was going to use a messenger bag but one was too small and the other was huge. I don't want to buy a bag for my work computer as they change out. Work gave me a rolling bag and I did not want to carry it.

It was not very smoky due to the wind. One day I smelled the smoke in the morning. Beautiful this time of year.

Guess I should look at Tom's shoulder bags for the next time. Yeah, any excuse to shop!!!!
I have a Brain Cell for my Mac but never carry it on work trips.

TavaPeak, almost looks like it could be looking out a window at the Antlers. The building on the right looks like the Exchange National Bank building. Could be I'm turned around a bit though. That'd be nothing new. :)
Take care,
Moose

Thanks Maverick. I'll try the Brain Bag with the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag and see how it goes. I think two backpacks may get awkward for me. -Eire

Yep, the travel tray was looking out the window of the Antlers facing Phantom Canyon Brewing Co.
