Ok, hey so..the My Life bit was added so I could find an excuse to post this here rather than the MBP or iPad section. For the past 3 years i've owned a 17inch InCase black Sling backpack which became closer to me than any girlfriend ever has. I've taken her to China, Japan, Chicago, New York and hopefully one day the moon. However, as of late she's been aging and wearing thin. We have a long relationship with countless adventures. One day I slipped while on the great wall of China but she was there to help my fall. So I need a new bag. Most days than not I have either my iPad or MBP with me so the bag should be able to hold either/or. Currently I'm a college student; but in a few months i'll be moving to Japan so def. will need a new bag. Then in a year i'll continue towards a Masters back at Uni here in the states. I don't know why i'm mentioning this; perhaps to state I don't need anything too professional looking but then again am not too big of a fan of the college-boy backpack look. I've got these in mind; of which i'd love for you to vote on, just to see what the MR conscientious is. 1. InCase Nylon Sling 15in: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/nylon-sling-pack-cl55304/1 2. InCase Vertical Sling: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/coated-canvas-vertical-sling-cl57268/1 3. InCase Shoulder Bag: http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/canvas-shoulder-bag-cl57174-a/3 As for #1, its the same bag i've had for years, only the look has been updated. A bit more round, and 15inches, not 17inches! This is a plus for me. I like #3's appearance more than #2's considering I feel of the two, #3 looks less like a purse. If you got any other suggestions for a bag i'd love to hear it. Especially considering this new bag of mine will most likely be the bag I take to Japan when i'm out there, university afterwards and perhaps an extra year or two....For My Life. I'll mention straight up i'm not a fan of the TimBuk2 bags. They're great bags, just not for me.
