I am hardly the authority on accessorizing, but a Faithful Reader wrote in to ask me what the best bag is for a screenwriter.
Personally, I'm fond of the Swiss Army Bags. They're lightweight and strong. If I'm going out with my iPad, I have an iPad bag for it. If I'm taking my MacBook Pro, then I use my Swiss Army computer bag.
Both Swiss Army bags do have an awful lot of pockets, and, I suppose, would be a tad lighter without them. But ballistic nylon is going to be much lighter than almost anything you might put into such a thing.
Lisa has just a padded sleeve for her laptop, with a shoulder strap. That's not so flexible, though. If someone hands you a script, or you have to bring your bike helmet with you (because you took a Bixi bike), there's no room.
I think if I were more of a hipster, I'd want this snappy, iconic, jet set bag:
What's your favorite bag, baby?
which specific Swiss Army bag is that?
That one is the Analyst 10 portable Device Shoulder Bag. I got it for about $35 on eBay.
I have a minimal computer bag because I am always toting a handbag, which has plenty of room for scripts, etc.
Guys, however, need something roomier.
