It Is Time for a New Campomaggi Bag

Having just bought a new laptop means that my trusted COLOMBO messenger bag is a little small and I need to give it a big brother. The choice is not easy because the selection is wide. I have two favorites, but the suggestions that have come in are very compelling too!

I have had my COLOMBO Messenger Bag for four years now. While I love it and it will last seemingly forever, I just got a new bigger laptop that does not fit in the COLOMBO very well. It does fit, it just sticks out by a couple of inches and, since I do have to carry the charger, things become pretty tight and there is very little room for anything else. Before I got my laptop I only carried my netbook (mostly without charger) and occasionally my tablet. There was still plenty of room for other little stuff like a journal, wallet, credit card case, sunglasses, etc. If I try to fit all that stuff in my COLOMBO now along with my new laptop I would end up with an unsightly bulge.

My COLOMBO with my new laptop inside shows that the laptop stretches it and the flap doesn’t come down as low as normal.

So the first thing I need to decide is how big a bag I want and identify my options. What I need to carry is the same stuff as before plus the laptop and its charger and minus the netbook. My first thought was for the RICCI, but when I realized that I had to have room for the charger I started considering the SANTARELLI. Of course, the minute I mentioned this on Fans of Campomaggi, the suggestions started pouring in.

Thats’s what I will do in my next post: begin evaluating a few of the options. If you have any suggestions post them here or on Facebook: I am all ears!
