Im looking for suggestions on a decent laptop briefcase for my MBA 13". A compartment to keep my iPad in there and some extra storage would be a plus. Not looking for anything with wheels. I know there are some out there but if there are any that you love or any specific place to get one, please post it. Thanks.

I bought one of their laptop sleeves for my 11" MBA. Great quality. Looking to buy a bag from them soon.

After reading lots of replies, I believe on this site we don't know the difference between: Briefcase, Sleeve, Messenger Bag, Backpack, Shoulder bag, Folio, stick-on protectors...

I have been looking at this one:

But I have not used it. So I cannot speak about the quality or how I like it.

There's a huge thread on this forum about bags for MBA. Do a search nad you should find it easily. Tons of recommendations and pictures have been posted. That's where I found the one I like - booq mamba messenger. Dedicated sleeve for iPad, plus space for more accessories than I'll ever need. The only gripe I have with it is that the "Black" is really more like "charcoal grey".

My Mamba is the bomb. I really like my 11" Mamba Courier. Highly recommend it.

For some reason, I am still not digging the felt bags for my laptops. I think they would be great paper carriers, just not electronics. Mind you, that is my own bias, with not real experience.
