    I asked Tom about that when I bought my own Brain Bag, and he said that pocket wasn't intended for that purpose, rather that pocket was meant more for boarding passes, etc.

    In my Brain Bag.

    Moving around town:

    1) Laptop (in vertical soft-cell).
    2) Snake-charmer (25' network cable and assorted power cords)
    3) Books
    4) 1L Water bottle

    While traveling out of town
    1) Laptop in vertical soft-cell
    2) snake charmer (network cable, power cords and plug adapters)
    3) books
    4) 5 days worth of casual clothes (wrinkle resistant/tolerant is a good idea).
    5) TSA acceptable toiletries

    I would love to be able to add my water bottle to the load when traveling out of town, but the mesh bottle pocket doesn't work so well when the bag is full.

    peregrina -- that top shot of your med. Cafe bag is great -- Bihn should pay to use it as a product shot

    "The first thing I did was see how many medical texts I could get in it, over 3000 pages in the main if anyone wondered(thats Harrison's Principles of Internal Medicine(two volume set), Robbins Pathologic Basis of Disease, Kandel Principles of Neural Science, and Boron Medical Physiology) obviously I don't CARRY that but it does fit. "

    My word, that is literally 50 pounds of texts! That is very impressive, indeed.

    started a topic What do you carry in your bag?

    What do you carry in your bag?

    Our goal over the next few months is to add a list on each bag page of what users of that bag carry inside of it. For example, on the Medium Cafe Bag page would be:

    Sherry S. carries in her Medium Cafe Bag:
    Paperback book
    2 Pens
    Checkbook
    Wallet
    Keys
    Water Bottle
    Small Camera
    Cell Phone


    Another example would be this packing list recently posted by pretzelb.

    The idea is that this would help give people a sense of the size of a bag, or help them choose between several bags.

    Could you share your "packing lists" for each of your bags with us? From Kit to Aeronaut, Checkpoint Flyer to Swift, we'd like them all. A text list is great - but if you happen to have a picture or the time to take one, that would be appreciated, too!

    Thank you.
Working...
