Looking for light keyboards that don't sacrifice on feel

Right now I use a DURGOD Taurus which I love (Cherry brown switches), and I take it back and forth from work every day I work at the office.
Unfortunately though it's getting quite heavy for me to carry so often, and I'm a bit worried about its effect on my back.

The laptop bag I use has some pretty good support, so I'm not sure if a better bag would solve the problem.

Are there any travel keyboards that are super light but also have good mechanical switches? As a programmer I need the function keys, the arrows and the keys that are usually above them (Home, Insert etc). I couldn't care less about the numpad.

Can you not get the same keyboard and have one at work and in the office?

We don't leave things here, it's an open office and we sit on different desks every time. It would very likely be stolen :P

IDew,

You have no space to store your stuff? Like lockers?

Nope

IDew,

Oof, that sucks. I’m not an office person, but the offices I’ve constructed all had lockers on them. Maybe suggest it to your boss?

You mention a different backpack. If you haven’t looked around for that, I’d make that a priority. To to an outdoors shop, get something proper.

I daily use a Deuter AC Lite 16. It has no special compartment for laptops, bit my 14 inch just fits in a tight elastic near the back. For a bigger laptop, I’d place a hoodie in the bottom.

It’s a small hiking backpack, and it’s curved back sits extremely well, I think. It’s great for biking, too.

The one you sent seems a bit much for my use, but from what I see there are surely better backpacks out there than the one I use, it's worth it to make some research there. It probably makes more sense to go to physical stores and try them out with my laptop and keyboard so I see what they're really like.

It looks pretty big in photos, I see when I search for it :D But yeah, physical shops are nice for this type of thing :) I hope you’ll find something (bag or board) you’re happy with!
