A cabin bag with a rigid outer shell.
The train is packed to the gills with passengers headed to Manchester Airport, so you must leave your cabin bag on the luggage rack on the other side of the carriage. Not even in view. Thank goodness you have a padlock on your bag to keep you safe (dang, you’ve got your expensive work equipment inside). People really throw their luggage on that rack, too, and oh, someone soaked in that torrential rain outside just put their bag on top of yours, dripping muddy water everywhere. It was definitely a hard cabin suitcase that you needed.
Your expensive work electronics are protected from other people’s carelessness and rain. With a wipe of a wet wipe, you can roll onto that plane as smartly as you wish to convey yourself to the person at the other end, eager to shake your hand and discuss business.
