Brenthaven bags have a lot of protection. I've had a couple over the years. Good quality. I like Tumi too but the new ones have less protection.

Based on the above, I'm leaning toward the Vanquest Envoy 3.0.

The first thing I break is usually the clips for the shoulder strap (which get tywrapped together until something else breaks). The Envoy looks in the picture like it doesn't have the chincy clips.
Nothing chincy on these. They have sling bags that also have conventional briefcase handles, that should help issue with already carrying a backpack.

I now use a 5.11 courier bag (The X version) it has served me well that past 6 months or so, but I will reserve judgement until after its one year mark. They seem to be on sale, maybe they are discontinuing them?

Have you looked at Helikon-Tex? Some of the guys returning from Poland showed me pouches and bags. Cordura quality and cheap. Picked up some and surprised by the quality.

Ended up with the Vanquest Envoy.

A little on the smallish side, but I was able to shoehorn everything in. Definitely built better than previous bags (Best Buy Crap).

Thanks again for the advice.

Little over a year later, and 4 trips to bush Alaska via airplane, helicopter (and 4-wheelers), plus every day use in the field in my home location.

The Vanquest still looks new. It gets tossed on the ground at construction sites, opened and closed at least 10 times a day, and has been in nearly every torture test an infomercial could think of.

I'm very happy. It must weigh 35 lbs with all my crap in it, but has held up remarkably.

I just noticed this was your first post...

Go ahead and follow the forum rules and post an intro.
