If your looking for something that will just store your adapter, superdrive, and maybe a small notepad then I got this from Amazon:

It works great for me. I put everything in the side pocket. However, it won't work as a real bag or backpack.

Brenthaven. http://www.brenthaven.com/catalog-trek_sleeve.html

Love it. Small, ultra light, holds the AC adapter and an iPhone cord, magazine slot, hard plastic over padding bomb-proof build.

I'm still a new user (2 weeks) so I carry it solo or in my incase 17" backpack.


was just going to get a speck hardshell case but those dramatically increase the weight.

In August 2008 I bought the Marware CEO Milano (see attached photos) for my 17-inch MacBookPro. Carrying the laptop AND the bag back and forth to work every day was doing horrible things to the vertebrate in my spine so in January 2009 I bought a MacBook Air.

The MBA fits in the bag very nicely with loads of space for portable hard drives, USB flash drives, power cables for iPhone, MBA, etc and a sandwich.

The CEO Milano itself is VERY light. When the bag is full it's easily 4 or 5 pounds lighter due to the smaller laptop. The bag is solidly made so the laptop is protected from drops; documents or document folders are not bent/wrinkled/dog eared like they were in my BrentHaven backpack (see attached photos).

I stopped using the backpack because it was too heavy. It also wasn't the best for carrying documents - they got mushed up easily. The backpack is easily 8 years old and looks like new - no apparent wear whatsoever!

The Marware bag is a year old; the only signs of wear are on the bottom (the part that rests on the floor when you lay it down); the leather is not torn or ripped at all - the wear marks are simply scuff marks, like on a pair of shoes. It comes with a shoulder strap - very robust and comfortable but I don't use it.

The CEO Milano has been successful in stopping a long-lived, almost unconscious habit: I no longer keep my eye open for a new, better bag; it suits my needs very well. I no longer ask people about their bags; Its a sad commentary on my life but I no longer have bag envy!

I recommend checking out James Kendrick's posts about the many bags he has tried in his long-term search for the best gear bag - a link to his site is below with other related links.

Good luck!

I carried it bare a while, but it's so thin and hard to grip, so I got myself a neoprene sleeve.

I have this one in black, which apparently has been discontinued. I love it.
