    I am looking for a decent bag, messenger style for my 17" MBP. I need to put the power charger, some cables and a folder in it too. If it has a couple of pockets for an iPod/phone cool.

    I am trying to find a vertical type bag, like the STMs but they don't go up to a 17" size that I like. I loved the brown/orange bag but that will only house a 15".

    I have an Incase backback at the moment but want a messenger back, it looks more professional IMO.

    If anyone has any experience, I'm all ears.

    Check out Timbuk2 for bags. I have a few ( although I don't use them for a computer) and they're really built well and have shown virtually no signs of wear in 2 years.

    I have the Crumpler Dreadful Embarrassment bag :)

    My only complaint about the bag is that if u look at the bag at a certain angle, you can see the MBP... not the greatest thing if you're trying to hide the fact you're carrying a laptop.....

    aside from that.... it's got enough room to carry your MBP, cables, whatever u want to put in it.

    I typically carry to work in that thing.....

    - MBP
    - Power Adapter
    - nano
    - Creative Zen Vision:M
    - Kensington Lock cable

    and a few binders...
