I've read a few of the bag recommendations on the forums and it appears that people have different needs when it comes to laptop bags so I was wondering if you would be kind enough to lend a hand to someone who's never bought a real decent bag (I'm a student so I've always gone with very cheap bags). I think it's time I bought a quality bag that will last me and that's where I hope you can help. A quick overview: I'm a university student and wanted a bag to hold the following things: 13" Unibody MacBook Pro Charger for MacKook Phone Mifi Keys 2 or 3 Books Pens Maybe a ring binder Pad of paper Few little things here and there Occasionally a spare shirt A battery charger for phone I like messenger bags so if I can get all the above in such a bag that would be great. Style number 1 is preferred to style number 2 but both are fine. Style Number 1 -> Style Number 2 -> The bag will be subject to the following conditions: Travel on Trains Travel on Aeroplanes Travel in Cars Some rain (I live in England) It would be great to have a separate compartment for the laptop. I don't mind it being a part of a larger compartment as along as it's separate from books etc. The bag has to be durable as this is the main reason I am buying a good quality bag as I want it to last. So far I've found it very difficult to find a bag that can meet all my needs. Any help is greatly appreciated. If you need any more info just let me know and once again thanks for your help.
