I asked #GirlMedTwitter for recommendations on a new work bag, and they did not disappoint. Since I can’t be the only one that wants this information, it seemed reasonable to put it all in one place. #GirlMedTwitter is typically more oriented towards physicians/clinicians and physicians/clinicians in training, so their needs are a bit different than mine, but I definitely got some great ideas for my next purchase.
This has been my only bag for the last five years. My best friend gave me one at the start of my PhD program, it survived two dozen conferences, six months of interviews, and one cross county move before managing to get some holes in the bottom. So I definitely recommend! It fits just about everything and can swing from casual to business pretty easily.
But since I’ve had it for five years, I wanted to see what else was out there. Perhaps with a bit more structure, and separated compartments.
This bag was the most popular, lots of comments regarding its durability.
A convertible tote to backpack.
