    I have the Brenthaven backpack - best back I've ever owned - period. I've had a ton of messgener bags, backpacks, etc. and the Brenhaven is the best. It comes with a removable sleeve - well padded. It's guaranteed for life, has TONS of pockets and is very comfortable to wear. I had a Waterfield Cargo bag (large) that was excellent - my problem with that was not the quality of the bag it was that for hiking long distances a messenger type bag sucks. The Brenthaven is awesome - I can load it up with tons of stuff and it never really feels bad on the shoulders or back.

    You may want to look in the PB forum at Macnn.com - they have a sticky forum in there dedicated to bags.

    using a spire backpack that comes with a sleeve, works like a charm

    Over-the-top quality, really. I have the Empire Builder and am impressed more and more as my time with it goes by.

    Not cheap, though, but you certainly get what you pay for!

    Oh, and they have inserts (Brain Cells) that specifically fit your particular laptop. They cater to Mac users.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again...

    My hard-sided Pelican case is tops. Wouldn't be without it. Looks cool, too! :cool:
