    Hey All,

    I hope I'm not out of place for posting this here, but I just wanted you to check out a laptop backpack I designed and made specifically for the 15-inch MacBook Pro:

    I've been a long-time Mac user and I always felt like there wasn't a backpack classy enough for the MacBook Pro. So I made one.

    Photos attached.

    Your thoughts/opinions would be greatly appreciated. It's still in development, so it's possible to make changes.

    How big is it? Seems to be like a school bag from the pics.

    To be honest, that looks pretty cool and could work for some people.. But for me, my Brenthaven bag is spacious enough for a couple notebooks, my graphing calculator, my phone, and of course my MBP. I'm not looking for anything better than Brenthaven quality.

    I like the way you close it, and I like the fact that the MBP goes at the back.

    I have a Brenthaven bag that is just sitting here, and it seemed to put a lot of pressure on my old 15" MBP because it was so tight and it zipped up in a way that you started at the edge and pulled up then back down. It was hard to put in all the time too.

    Hopefully it comes in different colors. :)

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The bag will eventually come in other colors. Initially I plan to offer several interior colors: green, blue, pink. The super-bright interior really does wonders for the bag. The high contrast makes it pop.

    The laptop sleeve is snug, but not tight. The standard and Retina MacBook Pros fit well. A 13-inch MacBook Pro (and Retina) would also fit, but would move around a bit. I have designs for 13-inch and 11-inch specific bags in the future.

    If you like the design, I'd really appreciate if you could share the Kickstarter project:

    I'm half-way through and more than half funded. I need just 20-odd backers to fund!

    Thanks for your time,

    Dude, that looks pretty sick haha. I still don't think I would just have a laptop bag for my mac. my Dakine backpack has treated me well.

    Love your backpack! The design is so simple. That really gets lost these days. If I wouldn't have bought my Oakley AP Backpack 3.0 last year, I'd take a hard look at yours. Good luck. Hope you get your product gets funded.
