    Personally I think it is too girly, but that's a matter of point of view/environment.

    I don't think it's girly at all :confused: It's just a white backpack - doesn't have ponies on it or any crap.

    No problem I'd say. Guess it depends on whether it fits your style. Seems they also make similar shorts for guys. But like niuniu said, nothing girly on it, just a white bag. Although... a bag with pink and purple ponies would be really cool [​IMG]

    Here get this one: http://www.bbpbags.com/industriesbackpack.html

    By far the best backpack I have ever owned. There were a few cons, but I don't mind sharing them as other backpacks have so many more flaws.

    1) Waist strap is cheap and hangs down when not in use. I took mine off, easy to do since it's an optional feature.
    2) Padding had an area that wasn't consistent. It's on a spot that doesn't touch my back though, and it's such a small area. (like 1"x 1")
    3) There's a tag on the inside of the backpack. A "Made in China" tag. Can't get it completely out without damaging the bag. I cut it close enough so it's unnoticeable though.
    4) "Snug Fit Adapters" are confusing. I can't really explain what they look like, but it's pretty much a piece of foam surrounded by a plasticy fabric with Velcro. Still not sure what to do with them. If you have a 13" you may want to try and install them, but a 15" or 17" won't use them.
    5) ^ The spacing can be tight if you use a sleeve. I have a 15" MBP and a Tom Bihn Cache Sleeve that I use. It's a tight fit for the backpack, but it works. Not sure how a 17" sleeve would work out. but a 13" with a sleeve should be perfect.

    Now that's everything that's wrong with the bag. I'll list a few good things now:

    1) Padding. The most comfortable backpack that I ever wore. This is coming from someone who spent High School wearing a Swiss Backpack with quadruple padding.
    2) Light. This backpack near ways anything. I mentioned my Swiss Backpack in #1, this backpack ways less than that with the laptop in it.
    3) Space. It may look small, but this backpack has some serious storage space. The zippers zip all the way down too so you can fit everything you need to inside it. It also has a few compartments on the inside of the pack and as well as on the outside (front and back).
    4) Zippers. Heavy duty zippers. Nothing cheap and flimsy. Also the backpack has a space for the zippers to fit under when you aren't using them, this protects them from the weather and other wear.
    5) Looks. I love the style of this backpack, it's simple, sleek, and functional all at once.
    6) Handle. Great handle on the backpack. It's actually heavy duty Pleather. Nothing cheap and flimsy.

    Oh and here's a coupon code for 10% off if you decide you want it: 10SAS

    I'm very interested in seeing the setup you've got going as I was actually thinking about combining the two products together. Is there any way you could put a picture up of you're Cache Sleeve inside the laptop compartment of the backpack, and also I have a hardshell case on my MBP would it still be able to fit in the Cache Sleeve?

    *I'm assuming you have the vertical sleeve not the horizontal

    +1 for the BBP Industries bag. Bought it a couple of months ago, and have been extremely pleased.

    Looks really nice, to white for me, but not girly at all...

    They have a pinstripe version too.

    I would pick the backpack up at tjmaxx for $39.99. That is where my BF got his gray version of the one OP posted.

    It's White.

    My concern would be getting it dirty. When I was in school my bag use to take a beating. Many a times it use to end up on the floor, etc.

    So I'd be worried that a White bag might start looking dirty way too soon/quickly.
