There were several reasons behind my purchase of Remus in water proof black. I travel on a weekly basis and wanted a duffle/laptop bag that was large enough to facilitate an overnight change of clothes if needed but I also wanted something that wouldn’t be out of place at a meeting. I live in the Pacific Northwest so I needed something waterproof especially during our raining period. I wanted something stylish but understated, and indeed I’ve gotten many compliments. The pockets are clever, and all the small essentials such as passport, phone and pass card can be securely stored and easily reachable. I can’t recommend this bag enough!
