When I started commuting, it did not take me long to realize I could no longer carry everything on one shoulder. I needed a bag that could fit files, occasionally my laptop, and all the junk I carry around with me (Kindle, pens, extra battery packs, water bottle, etc.) but still looked structured and professional enough for court. I also knew I wanted to invest in a bag that would last a long time. Enter Tumi. They no longer sell the one I ended up getting, but this one is close. I also love that this version has a “quick-access phone pocket,” because the biggest issue I have when carrying a backpack is where to put my phone. (Side note, women’s pants should all have FUNCTIONAL pockets, IMHO.) Using a backpack has saved my shoulders during my commute, and I can’t imagine ever returning to a shoulder bag. This bag is $375 at Amazon and is also available at Tumi, which has a couple more color options). Carson Backpack
Amazon has a more affordable option from Knomo that is $179.
