    I was curious if anyone used any of these two bags in particular (unless you have something very similar im not looking for alternatives, just a perspective if theyre worth their price); and if they were worth the all the notebook bags I looked at were either very cheap quality, cramped, or too goofy looking for my tastes.

    1 - BOOQ Taipan Lift Large

    2 - AXIO Hybrid XL

    (i would like a messenger bag to carry the notebook in when i fly and the backpack will be used for clothing/misc gear so i dont have to lug a suitcase with...and then utilize the backpack with the notebook and other accessories out and about when traveling etc etc)

    thanks alot!

    I have the incase nylon backpack, and when it comes to laptop backpacks, I couldn't imagine a better bag. Everything fits snugly, it has a billion little elastic-net type pockets within each larger section, and smaller velcro pouches inside. Plenty of padding, plush laptop section, and by far the most comfortable backpack I've ever carried.

    ThirteenXIII, I can suggest the Go messenger bag ( and the Glide backpack ( combo from Briggs and Riley. They are two extremely streamlined bags, offering the best in style and organization. The messenger bag has a removable computer sleeve and pockets for your PDA, MP3 player, files, etc. The Glide backpack is great to carry all your travel essentials. It’s extremely lightweight and has ergonomic backpack straps for comfortable carrying. I am pretty certain you’ll love both these bags.
