    Does anyone know what kind of bag this is? It looks nice (I did not get to see it up close and personal or anything) but wondered if anyone knows via the logo, I am looking for one for my 15.4" MBP


    I was also looking at this one - I prefer the Satchel type

    I have this bag, the Brenthaven one; it's great for the laptop, but it's not very big. I couldn't get all the stuff in it I needed for work. So then I went with an Osprey Transit bag, which I really liked. But like most mac laptop guys, we're bag freaks, so I also picked up North Face Recon backpack. I really like it!

    As far as the Timbuk bags, I don't think they're worth the premium your paying for the name.

    Just my .02¢

    What size did you get? Does it hold everything? What all do you carry? Also what size laptop do you have?

    I bought 2 bags from them. I would highly recommend them.

    I bought this combo a few weeks ago. It is a sleeve and messenger combo by MacCase. Perfect fit sleeve(made for Macbooks specifically) and the messenger is awesome. Messenger.html

    I bought the Timbuk2 Originals Commute from the REI Outlet store, got it for about half off to be like $70. Excellent bag, well-built, soft-corduroy laptop lining.

    well, the bag arrived today...I love everything about with exception to one thing -

    It is not big enough :(

    I got the medium based on the fact that I have MPB 15.4" WS. The bag fits perfect for that, but does not have enough room/pockets that zip for the external drive, power cables, net cables, cell chargers etc.

    I thought that if I got the large that is made for the 17" lappy's that my MPB would not safely fit in it....

    #13 is a great site. i think i've gotten three things from them before and very satisfied.

    return it if you're not satisfied, and get something else or something bigger. i'm sure they'll take care of you
