For those times when I need to carry my MacBook Pro, I now put everything into the Smart Alec bag, including the Essential Cross-body bag itself!
So there you have it, my current setup! A few days in and I’m loving it. We’ll see how things progress, with the unfortunate awareness, however, that us bag addicts are never fully satisfied! So watch this space for future updates!
