    Today is the first day it was really pouring outside that I needed to transport my iBook 12" to school. My iBook fits well in a leather messenger bag I have, but I did not want to take it out in the rain because of the chance of the leather spoiling and water getting through the top zippers (and spoiling the iBook).

    I really like the style of the Crippy Duck and the WeeBee. I have a professional bag for conferences (my leather one), but I need a tough everyday bag and I want it to have some style too.

    Does anyone have either bag. I am not a tiny gal (I am rather tall), so I want the bag to fit well with me. I need a bag that is waterproof, fits my computer, zip drive, external mouse, calculator, wallet, keys, cell phone, papers (but not a sick amount), and maybe a book from time to time. Okay, I will most likely have a book in it.

    Hehe, I found that bag on the website for some reason. It was the first one to come up in google. Its designed for dyslexics so they spelt it wrong? Odd, I guess us dyslexics are allowed a sense of humour too. :)

    (btw, i'm not actually sure if I'm dyslexic, I am being tested this term)

    edit: oh yeah sorry never used that bag, is it really intended for dyslexic users? If so, why the hell do they/we need special computer bags?

    Timbuk2 makes some really nice messenger bags in lots of color choices and patterns. Samsonite has a line called Zab which is pretty nice depending on your own personal style. However, I'd recommend a Boblbee Megalopolis. I had one for about a year and a half until my girlfreind stole it, it simply kicks ass, hard shell, water resistent and shiny. It never fails to get positive comments or odd stares.

    I tend to prefer bags that are more vertical than wide. That is, I like the ones which are longer and have the longer lenght of the computer going vertically.

    Did you end up getting a Crippy Duck or a WeeBee? I am in Sydney, Australia for six months for work, and I have absolutely fallen in love with all of the Crumpler bags. The local store here is just amazing. I ordered a Crippy Duck (orange) from a website in the States, but I won't get to use it until I'm back in April. What did you decide on?

    I must say that computer bags were not what came to mind when I saw "Crippy Duck, Wee Bee, or something else?" I decline to comment on what I guessed this thread might be about.

    I ended up getting a $40 targus bag. I really wanted a crumpler but when I saw this bag I thought it might suffice until I could get one. It turned out to be everything I wanted and more and for cheap. A lucky find, I guess.
