    What kind/brand of bag do you carry, backpack, messenger bag, small shoulder/gadget bag?

    I'm looking for a smaller sized backpack to carry my 13" laptop, not many options out there, most bags are too big....

    My "everyday bag" consists of several car batteries soldered to a Mac Pro held to my back via bungee cords, as well as a secured table on my chest as a place to place the 30" display(s)

    If that was intended to be funny, it is not working.

    Say, could you post pictures of this? I've been looking for a setup to carry around a 27 in iMac. I figure if this guy can make his iMac portable, so can I.

    My "everyday" bag is a swiss gear backback. It had a spot for a laptop and plenty of room to carry what I need. It is my travel bag when I go somewhere.

    I own a shoulder bag but I hardly ever use it any more since I got my swiss gear one. I will vote get a swiss gear bag and forget it. They are well worth the cost.

    I don't have an everyday bag. If I need to carry some of my things with me, its usually in a bookbag.

    Yeah, they actually had an interview with the guy posted a little while back. Pretty amusing stuff.

    On a serious note: I agree with the earlier endorsement for Swiss Gear. I have one that I use to lug around my 17" Powerbook. It has tons of room and lots of pockets. It's also very sturdy and well made. I don't carry it or any other bag every day, though, so I can't say how it would hold up with daily use and abuse.

    I carry everything in a black Arc'teryx RT45. It's basically a rope-bag, but it serves me well.

    Heck, I can't find the model listed on there. It says it is from Fall 2007.

    I couldn't find an image online, but it is close to the Whistler

    I don't always carry it, but it is always near by. The Gator by RedOxx. They come in about a dozen colors.

    Not everyday per say. Now that I am graduated I won't need it as much. Awesome bag though. Fits a ton of stuff.

    I'm an amateur photographer and I read a lot, so I have an SLR and a book one me pretty every day. So, having an every day bag makes a lot of sense. However, I do not own a 'man purse'.

    This is what people carrying "everyday bags" look like. If it's part of your profession (photographer, etc...), then fine, but c'mon, there was a thread a couple months ago where this poster was taking suggestions for what to put in a satchel and it was just ridiculous.

    Just my trusty Crumpler. Doesn't get much use now I graduated but it was hella useful back then. Held my 12" PowerBook, sketchbooks, moneys, GBA/DS (when the time came). In the process of extending the strap so I can put my 13" Macbook in there. Damn widescreen.
