Minimalists Trip with a suit. Monyker 3 in 1 weekender or Henty Wingman Backpack?

You are taking short trips and you need the following:
Carries a suit
Fits on your back
High speed/low drag for moving through crowds, boarding commuter jets and even sight seeing.
Holds enough items for 1 to 3 days (chargers, toiletries, an extra pair of shoes, PJs, socks, underware and a couple extra shirts.

The contenders:

https://monyker.com/products/jw-weekender vs https://henty.cc/shop/wingman-backpack/

Both will carry a suit and 1 days clothes (plus a bit more).
Both have a laptop compartment (the Monyker is better here).
Both can be made water proof (the Monyker with a rain fly and the Henty just is by default).
Both can be worn as a back pack.
Both have day bags as the Monyker has a detachable small back pack and a man bag while the dry bag of the Henty can be carried seperately.
Monyker looks more professional
Henty is going to be more high speed/low drag when you are moving through the crowd.
Either should fit on a CRJ commuter.
The Henty is a bit cheaper (on sale for $149 vs $2254 on sale for the Monyker).
Only the Monyker has s shoulder strap for duffel mode
Only the Monyker has a wet/dry water proof section to separate wet or dirty items from the rest.
Neither have water bottle holders (both have a loop where you can attach one though).
Both have pockets that are accessible without opening the main compartment, the Monyker is better here.
Both are fashionable and which one is more fashionable probably depends on how you are dressing and where you are going with it.
The Henty is otpimized for cycling which means it will be better for active tasks.
The Monyker is optimized for general use which would make it better for a weekend get away.

If you have to take your trip with only one....which one do you pick?

Interested to hear from you.
