I got this Zendesk bag at a conference and carry it to work every day.
I am information manager at The University of Manchester Careers Service. UK. I like this bag because its waterproof, will fit A4 files and has lots of pockets and zip up compartments so I can find stuff and hoard loads of pens.
I am a YA librarian, for an urban public library in TX. I need a bag that I can carry on the bus (and easily maneuver my metro card out of); something that can carry my breakfast, my program planning notebook, all the books I’m checking in and out of the library any given day, and my cardigan I wear to survive the intense AC. Also I wanna look good, as image is everything with teens. So I wear this galaxy back pack daily.
I’m the Library Director of a very small public library in Pennsylvania and I carry this bag with me to work everyday, and I LOVE IT!
