In the 20+ years I have been doing genealogy research, I’ve lugged with me all kinds of backpacks, totes, portable file boxes, and even those huge totes-on-wheels to the libraries, archives, and courthouses where I do my research. I’ve also road-tested them overseas.
But of all the different document-holding, file-toting, equipment-carrying products I’ve tried, this portable file box and computer case combo is my absolute favorite–I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT for anyone who has to carry files or equipment to-and-fro as part of their job or hobby:

This tote retails for about $80, but I bought mine for $45 during FranklinCovey‘s back to school sale last fall. You can also buy it in Brown on Amazon (click the image to see it on Amazon)
