EXPLANATION: I want a laptop sleeve, so I can slip my sleeve into whatever backpack I want and so that my bag attracts no attention. In addition full laptop bags cost a ton! CHOICES: After a considerable amount of research (I'm a pretty cautious buyer), I have narrowed it down to two bags: 1. Tom Bihn's Monolith: $40, http://www.tombihn.com/Merchant2/me...Code=TB0330&Category_Code=300&Product_Count=6 2. Spire USA's Boot V: http://www.spireusa.com/products/BT4.html LOGIC AGAINST SIMILARS: Tom Bihn makes the Mitre in the same range as the Boot V; however, this seems to offer less protection that the Boot. Spire makes the really, really cheap and lightweight Dash, but it is nothing more than a supporting cushion for someone with a full laptop bag already. MY REASONING SO FAR: The difference in price between the two products is pretty negligible. The Monolith offers hard shell protection. The Boot is, however, made of Ballistic Nylon so it shouldn't be too bad either. I'm confused over which one offers perfect balance of price, protection, and other features. QUESTIONS: Does anyone have either of these? How good is the padding on them? What do you think of them? Any faults you can think of? Any sleeves you recommend instead? How strong are they? Thanks for taking the time to help me.
