    I'm looking to buy a Crumpler bag for my 15" uMBP, and am wondering if the sleeve of the Consider Embarrassment bag fits?

    According to http://vistek.ca/store/BagsCases/23...-embarrassment-laptop-bag-blackgun-metal.aspx , the sleeve is about 1-inch too small (could that be right or is that just a mistake of Vistek's site??). The Dreadful Embarrassment seems to be a couple of inches too big. Most of the reviews I've found are from people with older (non-Unibody) MBPs. The official Crumpler site doesn't have any specs on the sleeve's size. :(

    Does anyone have a considerable embarrassment bag with a 15" uMBP?

    Crumpler bags are awesome and top notch quality.
    I own "The Luncheon", which I use for my 13" uMBP. It's perfect.

    I bought "The Karachi Outpost" 4 years ago for my camera gear. I hauled it in the worst situation you can imagine and it still looks great. There's a 3 year warranty on their product.

    Im currently using the considerable embarassment bag with my 15" UMBP. the mbp fits in the sleeve and is snug. i think the part that they say is abit short is the height of the sleeve, so your umbp would stick out abit, but it's not a problem, since the flap to secure it in the sleeve can still close... theres enough roomfor a textbook and maybe 2 magazines or notebooks. and all your adapters can fit in the zippered compartment. you wont be able to fit the umbp if you use a incase neoprene sleeve, or one of those protective shell cases.

    i've seen my friends dreadful embarassment, and it's a good bag too. its bigger(obviously i guess) so you can store more books and carry more stuff. and an added advantage is you can use an incase neoprene sleeve and also put it into the sleeve in the crumpler bag.

    i noticed your from toronto. you can just drop by the crumpler store downtown, and bring your laptop to see what works best for you and see it in person.

    Thanks! I wasn't aware that there was a Crumpler store in Toronto. I was planning on just heading to Vistek to try that (it's closer to me), but they didn't have any in stock, so I ended up going to the Crumpler store anyway. :)

    I ended up getting the Considerable Embarrassment, although they said it was a slightly older edition (the newer ones they had only had really bright colors). The woman there said that the sleeve in the older model is the exact same one as in the newer ones they had, and it ended up fitting perfectly (width-wise)! :D
