    Heyy everyone!

    I'm actually looking to get a new sling bag for my new Mac :)

    Ideally, I am hoping to get something like this:
    1. It ought to have the same thing that the Shinza Zero Shock has (High Density Foam) to protect the computer
    2. It has to be slim
    3. Doesn't look like a bag that only a Comp Sci major* would carry :) *(Although I really AM a Comp Sci major)
    4. At least has one little pocket for the power adapter

    Thanks for the recommendations :)

    this is the slimest i can think of. its not really a messenger bag, but a slinged sleeve. it does have pockets for an adapter. its what i use sometimes.

    otherwise i use this: tenba large messenger bag
    im a photographer, so it comes with insert for my camera and has compartment for my laptop. its not bulky either.

    these bags are padded but it doesnt have zero density foam like what you want.

    how about a bag from timbuk2? See here:

    you can also customize them by color and fabrics, they are water resistant and your MBP will be safe.

    I bought a messenger bag nearly four years ago and I've been using it on a daily basis to carry around my 15" MBP. It obviously doesn't look like new anymore, but it's way from needing a replacement.
