THE Bag: the Patagonia MLC Bag
The much-loved MLC bag from Patagonia is back and completely redesigned. That bag gets rave reviews from everyone who has it. The Patagonia blog, The Cleanest Line, has a review here. Be sure to read the comments on that entry for customer views on the MLC. I've wavered between getting an MLC or the time-honored Critical Mass. I'm leaning toward the Critical Mass. The MLC seems a bit more business-y (it's also $159 vs. $119) while the Critical Mass still has a college-student look and feel to it and let's face it, I'll use whatever I can to make myself feel younger.
