    I'm looking for a bag to replace my backpack. My backpack is much larger than it needs to be. I just need a bag to carry a couple small books, some papers, a lunch, a water bottle and my Nintendo DS. Something thats easy to carry and compliments my laptop bag.

    Well I don't care about it matching, I just want it to be easy to carry them together or separate depending on the circumstances.

    I have always found Crumpler bags to be pretty spanky!:D

    Care to tell us how much money is considered "steep"? Some of those Timbuk2 bags were like $55.

    And is that a Dell laptop bag in your photo? :(

    The ones that I saw were a bit overpriced.

    No, it's a Targus.

    What is your price limit. We need details to help you, you know.

    Try this Manhattan Portage bag.

    Or THIS one.

    I like the second one. I might just splurge and get it.

    LOL, actually it seems very reasonably priced. :p

    Well that was easy, wasn't it. :p Glad I could be of assistance to your bag dilemna.

    Damn it, I found THIS bag and they only sell it in America. Actually, I can get it if I want to pay $36 for shipping. :rolleyes: The bag itself costs $26.

    Wonder if Rushfaster.com.au has it? Nope.


    The 2nd bag is definitely better, Ghall. Just don't get black.

    Good choice with the Manhattan Portage. They make a great quality bag, and have excellent customer service. Story:

    My girlfriend ordered a small bag to carry her cellphone, iPod, keys, gum, etc... around in. The color she ordered was out of stock. Rather than e-mail her and hope she saw it soon enough, they desperately tried to get ahold of her before the end of the day (Friday) so they could have the bag shipped out before the weekend. They did, and she had the bag by Tuesday.

    This is the bag I have right now, and will probably own for quite a while. It is a fantastic bag.

    ^^You've made it difficult.

    The good prices in the US, combined with the poor options for really small messenger/utility bags means that I may actually have to suck it up and pay the $35 delivery fee to get this $26 bag. If I don't get taxed, I guess it's not so bad.

    Actually, I'm considering this one because I was willing to pay around $100 USD for THIS bag. I guess it's not that bad if I think about things that way, but why are prices so crap outside of the US? Paying $100 for bags that probably sell for like $40 in the US isn't so fun. Funny thing, that Mandarina Duck bag wasn't as small as I wanted the bag to be. (Oh look, it's on sale now. Now I'm not sure what to do)

    Anyway, who cares. Life goes on....

    I'm a HUGE fan of the bags they make at InCase. By far the most comfortable bags that I've ever used.
