Hi All. I have simply been struggling to find a right backpack to carry my MBP 13". Here is my situation. 1. I have been using a NorthFace Daypack (Hot Shot) for the past four years or so paired up with a AppleSac sleeve for my laptop. I can actually carry fair amount of stuff and a large water bottle on the side of the pack. I, however, really dislike a lack of padding at the bottom. It makes me nervous everytime I settle my backpack on the ground of hard floor. 2. I bought a NorthFace Surge after reading good reviews. I didn't like it because it doesn't have enough room for all my stuff, so I returned it. 3. I just tried Level 8 Atlas pack. Descent, but I can only carry a very small water bottle. I read many threads about backpack on this site and searched quite a bit on internet, but I haven't find my perfect backpack. I'd appreciate your input.
