There are a lot of bags out there, and you should probably own a few different kinds. But do any of them help save you time, or do they become bottomless pits full of loose change, old receipts, and maybe your keys?
Finding a bag that really strikes the balance between style and function is a key to having a productive commute. A bag that has dedicated pockets for everything, from a phone changer to your water bottle, is incredibly important to staying organized, and therefore, more productive. Try one of these and make sure you're getting the most out of your bag.
