The Gadgeteer

Attention to detail and function translate to a design in the Commuter that is easy to live with and adapts easily to work, play and travel. It looks good in professional and casual settings and works equally well in all three carry modes. Overall this is one of the best realizations of a one-bag, multifunctional daily carry solution that I have found yet.

Tools & Toys

I love the Topo Design’s Commuter Briefcase because of its versatility without compromise to design. The expanded organization features that it does lack are enough that it’s probably not a universal recommendation for anyone looking for a laptop bag.
