I love bags.
I guess it’s not that unusual. Now being a geek with no taste, I’m not very imaginative. But now that my camera is too big to fit in the bbp bags’s Biz bag (which replaced my Mamba booqbag whose strap I wore out at the stitching).
Because of this, it was pleasant to run across this on <a href="Timbuk2’s website:
[Thinking about Timbuk2 after the jump.]
This is because I was this close to buying the Blogger over a year ago and because I remember Scott’s ringing endorsement six months ago. I love Scott’s reviews because he makes it both personal and practical at the same time, though it does remind me that the last time I took a picture of my equipment bag was two years (three cameras and four bags) ago!
Why I didn’t get a Timbuk2
Back then the reason I passed up on the blogger was that in 2006, all the coloring and styles are the same. Since then, Timbuk2 has increased the colors and materials as well as varied them throughout the line.
I’m still worried a bit because, since it is a “laptop” class bag, the padding requires complex stitching that requires it be made in China. This means, it’s not available as a Bag in a Box.
Oh well, the Hacker is out because they haven’t updated the styling and the Blogger is out because it won’t fit my Nikon D3.
What I am purchasing today
Please share any experiences or bag tips and point me to your reviews you’ve blogged. I love reading about bags almost as much as buying them!
