MacGyver would use this bag

Looking for a messenger/briefcase type bag, that is taller than it is wide. Saw this Saddleback bag, but specifically I’m looking for something with separate compartments. Something like one big compartment and one small compartment. As in, there would be a compartment that would fit a laptop, and another compartment for miscellany. Here’s the kicker: I would like the compartments to be able to be opened individually. I could open up and remove the laptop, without opening up the other compartment.
You might want to try a search f mi adidas or “Map cases” or “Military map bags” for those kind of dimensions (taller than wider).

This Tom Bihn bag is pretty close and is designed to fit a laptop. It has a separate compartment for little things, but you have to open the flap to get to either the laptop compartment or the mi adidas small compartment, so I’m not sure if that fits your criteria.
I have a Tom Bihn bag and love it. It’s well made and well designed and has a bunch of little pockets and little rings to attach my keys and things and it is just so cool.

I am not trying to state the obvious, but the ideal search term is “vertical messenger bag.” That may help you find some possibilities.
