    Looks good but that's not the same one as the bag I was talking about. I think that's the sleeve.

    ^ That's Great. But I'm pretty sure OP asked for an opinion about the canvas backpack. But thanks for sharing anyways!


    To the OP: I got one of their canvas sleeves + owned their backpacks, it's a great material and it does look good, I suggest you try it on in store. It looks good on the site, but once someone wears it....they tend to look really funny with a backpack like that.

    Also, not worth the 99 bucks IMO, that's why I returned it. Cheers.

    i ahve the INCASE COATED CANVAS BACKPACK

    i think its awesome

    i made a vid on it

    its a little more money though than the shoulder bag, but, if ur using it for school and stuff, backpack is more secure and holds more things

    I have one. Great bag. Durable and has a dedicated pocket for iPad as well, which convinced me to buy it. Holds my headphones, power adapters, phone, etc securely and comfortably. I recommend it!

    I was hesitant that the bag I bought would not hold all the things I carry for work, but it ended up being the perfect size. Small, compact and protective for a decent price.

    Again, I'm just making a suggestion

    Thank you all for your replies, I think I'll go ahead and pull the trigger on this bag.

    I bought this bag and about 8 others from amazon a couple days ago. This particular bag is cheaper direct from the vendor.

    As copied from my Amazon review:

    On a quest for the perfect bag for my 2011 Macbook Pro 15" See my other reviews

    This a minimalistic case, not for pack rats!

    - If you carry your power adapter with you, it's going to be a tight fit.
    + iPad 2 : Has compartment for a naked Ipad 2. If you use a case/sleeve, you can fit it in front of the dedicated pocket.
    + Good padding around, except for the very bottom. I would cut a small piece of foam, or neoprene from one of your old cases and put at the very bottom. If I dropped the bag and it landed in the same orientation as you would set it down, I'd be slightly worried. That being said, it is one one of the better cases I've looked at recently.
    + Fits the MBPro 15" very nicely.
    - Won't fit the Macbook IF it is in a Lacie zipper-less sleeve. you can shove it in there, but will be turning the bag inside out to remove it. I like to use a sleeve plus the bag personally.
    -/+ you will get a magazine, or two in here, but not much else in addition to the iPad and the Macbook Pro 15". No text books!
    - no grab handle.
    + Padded shoulder strap, non-removable.
    + Good style, looks too small to hold a laptop, so it doesn't scream laptop. Glossy appearance. Looks like a fashionable accessory.

    Photos -- if you look at this on the Incase website (same model), it shows the straps as being detachable, and having a grab handle. The Amazon photos are correct for the Amazon product.
    Being a minimalistic bag, it's on my shortlist, as I can fix the padding myself. There are not a lot of minimalistic bags.

    Thanks @Coolestdude - very helpful review.

    Almost ready to pull the trigger on buying this bag, but your review pointed out that there is no top handle, which definitely means I need to see/try this in person before buying it.

    Hey guys I am searching for a bag like this. I think this bag looks really nice but someone mentioned above that there is no padding at the bottom of the bag and more importantly, no textbooks would fit.

    However, I am planning on using this with a 13" MacBook Air. How well would textbooks fit inside with that?

    Thanks.
