Hey guys,
Ive been looking for ages to find a good bag for my macbook air 11inch.

Im looking for a backpack or messenger bag

Like this (http://store.apple.com/us/product/H1834ZM/A?n=macbookair11&fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&s=topSellers)
or Like this (http://store.apple.com/us/product/H5167ZM/A?n=macbookair11&fnode=MTY1NDA2Ng&s=topSellers)

but they need to have big pockets and needs to be able to fit
a macbook
charger + extension cord (but I have a coil (http://www.stilsucht.de/images/06-2010/quirky-power-curl-apple-powercord-2.jpg) so the pocket needs to be rather large)
also a pair of headphones (beats studio) again rather large
a harddrive and maybe a book or two

it should also look decent!

any suggestions are welcome!

I personally love STM bags they are good quality and hold a good amount.

This thread helped start me in the right direction:

I custom built a Timbuk2 (http://www.timbuk2.com/) messenger bag for my MBA 11 as well as my books/university supplies.

Try the Lowepro range, pretty good. Recently reviewed the 250 series on my channel (http://www.youtube.com/theunits3) if your interested.
