I love Tom Bihn, this is my 3rd overall bag from them. This one is more utility than the others.
I have a Ristretto for walking around when i don’t need a laptop with me. It’s awesome. It’s not very portable as a secondary bag though, it’s bulky and takes up space in luggage. It certainly doesn’t fit well in my backpack.
I’ve been looking for something that would fit in my backpack, for when I’m traveling or just at the office, but want to go out and about but don’t want to lug my whole backpack around. The Ristretto could work, for my iPad, but not my laptop. Plus, like i said, it’s bulky doesn’t really fit in my laptop bag.
Enter the daylight. It’s the right size for a macbook air, an iPad, a few other things like chargers or a notebook. It holds my 3DS, and a few other bits, and is easy to carry around.
The best part is that it folds up nice and small. I can roll it up and shove it in my backpack and it can live there all the time until i need to run to a meeting, and only need my laptop or iPad and notebook.
It folds and rolls up and leaves plenty of room in my bag still.
I got the idea for the daylight from a blog I read.
I’ve taken a few trips where the Ristretto was just too big to bring and had to lug my entire laptop bag around, or do with out any gear. The worst of both options for sure.
I’m really excited for future travel and even office days.
