Spire has always been a favorite of ours. They make solid bags that are lightweight yet still extremely functional.
I’ve been using the Endo XL for a few weeks now and it really has just about everything I could need. What makes it so great is that it is built to carry significantly more items than just your laptop. You can easily fit pens, cell phones, notepads, magazines, cables, and really whatever else you want which ultimately helps cut down on extra baggage. This is especially helpful for the frequent traveler.
The bag is made of tough ballistic nylon that can stand up to just about anything. And on top of it’s extreme durability, it’s easy on your shoulders due to a cushy shoulder pad.
My only real complaint with this bag is, for lack of a better word, its “baggy-ness.” There are so many different compartments, nooks, and crannies that the amount of fabric in the bag can be a bit overwhelming…especially if you’re carrying a lot. This is really one of those personal preference things and still wouldn’t keep me from using the bag.
Overall this really is a great product. It’s available in 4 different colors (navy, gray, black, red) and will cost you $100. You can check out full specs on the Endo XL product page.
