My wife stirs me about the number of bags I have, she says I have an obsession. Well, this quote from from Soroush Khanlou’s post “The Perfect Bag” sums it up perfectly.
In Buddhism, they say “there is no path, there are only paths.” It’s the same with bags. Once you accept that all bags are some form of compromise, you can get a few different bags and use the right one for the right trip.
And that’s why I have a couple of different backpacks, a small soft briefcase, a larger soft briefcase, and a roller bag…amongst a couple of travel / clothing bags, and a couple of different camera bags.
