I really liked the construction and the great customer service at Tom Bihn. Plus, feature-wise, I couldn't find anything quite like their products. Very good protection and lots of options.

Sadly, my AlBook came with a free non-Bihn bag I hate :D I hate to buy another bag and waste this one, but I just might. I really liked the Bihn bag I used a while ago.

Also, at one point the 15" AlBooks didn't fit quite right (too tight for some people) in the Brain Cell bag 15" size originally meant for TiBooks. They may have enlarged that Brain Cell slightly by now though. I like that model all by itself as a nice compact case, although it can be used inside other luggage too.

EDIT: Yes, it looks like the 15" Brain Cell (size 4) has been altered to better fit both AlBooks and TiBooks. Hmmm... now I may have to get one.

The bags are very well put together. They hold a lot. Even with a laptop and cords, I can get a couple of days worth of clothes and stuff in the other pocket.

Get a Snake Charmer from them as well. It fits above the brain bag and will hold cables, power supply, mouse and other assorted stuff.

My bag has been on many airplane trips and is still in great shape. Yes, the bag costs a bit, but you do tend to get what you pay for.
