    I don't carry a straw as I generally don't use them, but I do carry a spork and chopsticks with me all the time, in this:

    I also do not have a car and commute exclusively via walking/ferry/bus. The DLBP is very good for public transportation because it has so little depth and fits so closely on the back. I wore a DLBP...

    I'm not counting my normal EDC stuff (wallet, phone, charger/cables, lip balm, etc.) in this list. Instead I went through past packing lists (yes, I keep these, LOL) to see which non-EDC items...

    Regrets: I've never been able to get the Buzz to work for me, it seems like the strap is just too wide if you also have boobs, LOL. I also regret picking up my first Daylight Backpack in Cordura, as...

    Ditto on the backpack for short people idea, obviously. :)

    Would love to see the Cafe Bags redesigned with heavy exterior attachment points, vs. the sewn-in strap, so that you can switch to...

    As someone who is 5'0" but also an adult, I find backpacks frustrating. Currently there seem to be three categories of backpack:

    wonderfully-short bags that carry a little (10-19L)
    long bags...
  7. How to use Annex Clips with the "new" Brain Bag?

    Despite holding out for a "smaller Brain Bag" for years now, I couldn't resist the all-ballistic full-sized version and picked one up this week (Black/Viridian :heart_eyes:)!

    Although the Annex...

    I've been using the same mechanical pencil for many years now and have worn off all of the writing on it -- but it looks exactly like this one, and if I remember correctly it used to say...

    I do this too! I don't use a lot of deodorant so I usually use oval lip balm containers like these: https://www.etsy.com/listing/269403180/10-natural-oval-lip-balm-tube-015oz42g

    I just tried stuffing my SK into the middle pocket of the MB, and it was a bit too big. I have a bunch of stuff in my SK though.

    The zip-apart straps look like the ones on this bag. They use this same design on other bags -- maybe it's a discontinued model?

    Will the A6 or the Weeks planner fit into the widest front interior organizer pocket of the SCB?

    I've got an x230 and use a Cache with Rails, sized "13-inch MacBook Pro Retina", for it.
    One thing to note -- back in 2013, when I bought my Cache, the interior dimensions for this size would have...

    Yup, I'd love to see the Brain Cell live on as-is too. I have several Brain Cells and even (eventually! LOL) found the adjustment feature, though I never tried using mouse pads, that's a good idea. ...
  17. Thoughts on a modular Brain Cell replacement

    Branching this off from an idea tpnl and I had in the 2017 Wishlist thread.

    Since the Brain Cell is being discontinued in favor of the Cache, I'd love it if we paranoid Brain Cell diehards could...

    That'd be my assumption as well, just kind of a bummer.
    I guess the problem with the poor non-glamorous Brain Cell is that you only buy a new one when you need a new one, but when you need a new...

    Pretty much exactly this. I use a Cache for my smaller personal laptop, but I'm not comfortable with anything less than a Brain Cell for my work machines or my 8 lb gaming brick, especially since I...

    As others have said, bring a coinpurse of some kind, because the lowest-denomination bill you'll see is 1000 (just under $9), the rest are all coins. IIRC the vending machines (which are excellent)...
