Messenger bag advice

Just brought an 11 inch MacBook Air and need a messenger to take to school. It has to fit an A4 exercise book (pretty thick one), school diary (is a bit bigger then an iPad Mini, small pencil case, iPad Mini with a little room to spare.

If anyone has a bag that can fit all this and would recommend it thanks, i'd like to have an option between leather and fabric.

Thanks, LEVz

I have fancier bags, but the Timbuk2 bag is the one I use most often...

I'm a big fan of the Tom Bihn ID Bag with the Brain Cell insert.

I'm rather fond of my Jack Daniels messenger bag which has a leather look, very subtle logo, and came free with purchase of 3 bottles.

Timbuk2 all the way. You can order a custom one and it can be as plain as you want.

Dedicated laptop storage plus a place for your iPad.

I have a merrell bag (daily brief) Comes in Black on their site but you can get it in Khaki on other sites, it's nice and only $99



Merrell now has another bag as well for $109. I've been a fan of merrell products for a while now.

Just noticed you're not in the USA....not sure what your options are for this anyway.

I've got this Patagonia bag: http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/...?p=48315-0-361

Has a separate laptop compartment and lots of pockets. Worked very well so far.

+1
I have just a straight black bag. Plain, subtle, there when I need it. Not looking to attract attention.
