    Husband got a brand new bag! (Not really he borrowed my BB)

    My better half was on a four days trip to a conference.

    While packing, five days ago, he realized that his everyday backpack was not going to hold
    - an heavy sweater
    - a pair of sport shoes
    - a light windbreaker
    - a swim suit
    - 2 tees
    - couple of pair of casual and dress socks
    - a short sleeve dress shirt
    - a long sleeve dress shirt
    - a pair of dress pants
    - a pair of sunglasses
    - phone power cable
    and the obligatory 3-1-1 clear zip lock

    I offered my Steel Brain Bag.

    That's the bag I am always yapping about, I emptied if of my heavy textbooks and hoped for the best.

    It is an older style Brain Bag but I have found a way to twist the two part waist strap into the webbing of the compression straps.

    Upon return, the better half was not grumbling about a sore back, said that the bag was comfortable and likable.
