NEWS – I review a lot of bags. The closet in my office has to periodically be purged of extras to make room for new models that come out seemingly hourly. But I couldn’t help but follow the link I saw a while ago to eBags.com for their slim professional convertible backpack.
Why do I think this is news? Three things. First, they allow you to carry both a tablet and a laptop. Although I have two iPads, rather than one of each, my original iPad Pro is larger screen-wise than some laptops, so it counts. Second, the straps can be placed in their own pocket and totally hidden, making the conversion to briefcase fully invisible. It just looks like a briefcase when they are hidden. Third, there’s a dedicated, external cord and charger compartment. Not a narrow, tight, tiny pocket, but a full, tilt-out, zip-around-three-sides, honest-to-goodness-pocket. ‘Bout time. You can buy one for $139.00 from eBags.com
