I bought this one for my wife years ago, her mother and grandmother both had breast cancer and beat it. It's up in a storage bin at the moment. Only bag by oakley we have. I want a travel bag for my work, that will hold my laptop. But they seem less functional then my Swiss Gear one. Anyone had both and can provide a comparison on why oakley over swiss, other than of course its oakley ;)

When I used to work in public schools here I needed to carry a lot more tools than I do now and I used to carry a Swiss Gear backpack. It was better because of all the pockets everywhere.

Now that I don’t need to carry as many tools I use my Kitchen Sink. I can still hold my MacBook and a decent amount of tools, just not all the **** I used to need to carry.

Thank you. I went and looked at the Kitchen Sink and other models in store over the holidays, they didnt seem as functional for my travel as the swiss gear backpack did. I love the aesthetic of them but I like the pocket options of the swiss gear better still. Only way to truly know is to take one for a test drive. I was contemplating an older model backpack from Oakley past that might be better for my needs as a traveling IT with a lot of gear when I travel.

IT is what I’ve done for the last 20 years. If you’re a field tech stick with the Swiss Gear as much as I hate to say it.

big kitchen is the best back I’ve ever owned. It has essentially the same specs as kitchen sink, just a lot bigger and more durable. id suggest looking there
