Bag shopping

It's been a while (5 years, about) since I made a spreadsheet to assist my bag shopping. So when I got the urge to buy a colorful summer tote, a brief survey of the market told me that there was too much information just to make a decision. I needed to bust out the spreadsheet.

Now, I know science now tells us that too many choices are bad for your mental acuity. (OK I just learned that might be true yesterday.) But I enjoy it, like so many things that are bad for you.

So, without further ado, bag enthusiasts, please go forth and check out my current front-runners in the competition to be my 2008 summer bag. Sadly, I fear this particular bag survey will be a little gendered as I don't know many dudes who carry totes, for whatever reason. And of course if you have a suggestion that's not on my list, please mention it.

Wow! That was fun. So... here are my faves:

I like how the Timbuk2 Musette looks, but it lacks in some features.

I like the features on the Manhattan Portage Fifth Avenue, and how it looks. That's probably the one I'd buy, though I tend to like bags with long straps so I can cross it over my body. They slide off my shoulder.

Good luck with your decision!
