I'm about to live test a crazy new feature on my website, right as I'm getting on a plane for 10 hours with no internet. Hopefully I don't break my site with this! With any luck, in a few minutes, you'll be able to visit https://aaronparecki.com/checkins and see my flight status updating live! It should show a map with my plane's location, updating continuously for the next 10 hours.
Got stuck in a research hole looking for a new laptop/travel bag. Can't quite find anything that fits all my requirements though. Must be able to fit the following:
• Laptop: 7.75" x 11"
• Keyboard: 5.5" x 15.25"
• Headphones: flattens to 6.5"x7.5"x1.5" or collapses to 6.5"x5"x3"
• Kindle, notebooks: 5"x7"
• DSLR: 3.5" x 4.5" x 6"
• Battery: 3.5" x 6.5" x .75"
• Various wires and cords
For reference, I can currently fit everything in my small Tumi sling bag, except the keyboard sticks out the top by an inch and so I can't zip up the compartment. That bag would be perfect if it were just a little taller.
I want something that doesn't *look* like a backpack, and is nice enough looking to carry in a semi-professional setting. Most backpacks with two straps are too casual looking, and most of the one-strap slings are too small. More zippers are generally good, since I tend to carry lots of little things that would all get lost in a single compartment.
The only ones I've found so far that are close are:
