    Today, I went into my local Apple Reseller and brought an STM Backpack, the Medium Evolution and the MBP 15" Sleeve.

    http://www.stmbags.com/medium-evolution-specifications.php

    They are both amazing. The backpack has plenty of spaces to fit extra things like your I-Pod, Keyboard, Mouse, EXHD, Power Cable, T.V and Double Bed. Well maybe not the last two but its still amazing ;)

    It is waterproof and very padded.

    I paid $150AU for the Backpack and $50AU for the sleeve. Yes it is quite pricey but I think well worth it.

    So exciting, My MBP hasn't arrived yet but I am all ready for it. New Mouse, Keyboard and Protection from Apple.

    I have the same backpack and I like it expect the laptop space is a little small. My MBP fits in it but it is a tight fit.

    i have the STM sports 1. I bought it at the last minute for a trip about 2-3 years ago right before going to the airport. And I LOVE it. I have had tons of messenger bags, computer sleeves, and stuff over the years but this is the only one that has stayed. It's not the sexiest thing it the world but there is just something about those stm bags that's great. I recommend them to everyone.

    I highly recommend the Booq Mamba Pack for the 15" MBP. Along with the Vyper sleeve, they fit into the Mamba pack perfectly.

    I have the Tom Bihn Backpack. It is by far the best one out there (my opinion of course)

    Well it is a nice padded section but if I don't get my MBP in all the way to the bottom it's practically impossible to close. I'm just saying it should be a little bit bigger, so it's easy to get a laptop in and close the flap.
