    Hi,

    I'm going on holiday soon and contemplating taking my blackbook with me.

    We usually take my standard Eastpak backpack which just has one main compartment and 1 small front compartment and usually has all documents (passports, notebook etc..), plus the usual holiday in flight stuff.. ie, gadgets (video camera, camera, ipod) and also the necessary kids items (books, games) + bottled water and snacky foods.

    Yeah, it's a lot I get crammed into that small backpack :)

    SO I've been reading up a lot over the past few days on upgrading this backpack to something that will also accomodate my laptop.

    I've come across 3 choices.

    1) Brenthaven Trek

    2) Timberland Stratham Hollis

    3) Eastpak Provider

    I'm not looking for a camping style one either.. just simple, plain and does the job really.
    Won't be using it for college like you youngsters out there.. lol..

    I'm probably erring towards the Timberland backpack, but any comments or recommendations on the above 3 would be really great.

    Many Thanks

    Update!

    Just an update for anyone who is interested..

    I didn't buy any of the bags I listed above (LOL!!)

    I ended up buying the Crumpler Belly L.

    At the price I couldn't resist and it certainly has the room for what I need it for, and boy.. does it look really neat! :D
