I don't have the answer! I'm looking for collective wisdom.

I've been carrying the Le Pliage Neo in grey for almost a year. It is very close to meeting my needs with a few fatal flaws, so I'm wondering if there is something better out there.

I love that it is large (large enough for my monster 15" work laptop ugh), but when it's not full it doesn't seem that big. I don't care to switch bags on the weekends so I'm using it all the time. I love that it is lightweight, and that it has long handles.

What I don't really love is the lack of pockets. Just a few side pockets are all I need, and would especially love one on the outside of the bag. I rarely end up zipping it, so that's not necessary, and I actually hate the little snap flap thing.

If you have any recommendations, please let me know! Thanks
