We have the Aerostich Letter bag and it's good for most of the time.
When we want to carry a bit more, the Chrome Messenger bag gets used.
The Chrome bag is one of their smaller ones, but has a ton of pockets and keeps everything dry.

Aerostich Courier's Bag. Waterproof, bomb-proof, and capable of hauling obscene masses of stuff from A to B. The Dispatch bag is just as good, only smaller. If you need to haul a small car, get the Parcel bag. For the price, you absolutely cannot beat these bags. $115 shipped for the Courier's bag, $10 less for a Dispatch or $10 more for the Parcel.

Put another way, these are the cargo version of a Roadcrafter suit.

After spending almost a year trying and returning various bags, I settled on a custom Timbuk2. My criteria included discrete laptop carrying area with protection, myriad usable pockets, chest strap, tripod/compression straps, and the ability to carry camera equipment when necessary (full-frame DSLR, multiple lenses including a 100-400, extra batteries, etc. Another criteria was that it was equally at home in a casual or professional setting, and didn't scream "camera gear inside!". Note that one of my criteria was *not* to be able to wear it every day on the bike in waterproof conditions. The bag has been treated, and survives mild precipitation well, but is not a daily external wear in the PNW item.

I purchased the medium size laptop messenger model, in a tasteful brown faux leather with brown trim and logo, as well as a Snoop insert for the camera gear. The bag just returned from a 4.5 month, multi-country, 14,000+ miles motorcycle trip where it lived in a Givi V46 top case while on the bike, and on me the rest of the time when shopping/hiking/touristing/etc. Perfect for a flight carry-on, plenty of well-organized pockets for gum/napkins/tissues/pens/paper/cards/etc/etc. For a shoulder strap pad I purchased a Billingham SP20 in black, and it's perfect.

Lifetime warranty, custom colors/features, made in the United States. The bag's a keeper.

Here is link to a pic of the bag on the Timbuk2 site.

Here is a pic of the bag at Hopewell Rocks, fully loaded. The lighting is a bit blown up in this photo, and the bag is actually a shade darker than pictured.
