    I've used the search feature and nothing pulled up. So, what I am asking is what carrying case do you guys use? I'm not looking for a hard cover, skin, etc. Something professional that fits the MBP sort of snug. I've got an Icon carrying bag/case already, but this being pretty thin, I'd rather it not be too loose.

    Thanks for any help.

    what do you mean. A messenger style bag?

    I am a fan of SwissGear Syngery backback. I have seen quite a few people in the business world use those to carry their laptops 2 and from work.

    I use a different SwissGear bag with the same color pattern that I would take 2 and from work every day and now I use it to to go 2 and from class. I think it is just fine to carry a laptop in it.

    My boss used the Syngery bag for his work bag.

    Timbuk2 is a great site for all bag types. They last forever as well.

    I would recommend Brenthaven bags... I have had the same one for 3 years and it has discolored, so I decided to replace it with a darker colored bag from the same company. I now have this one, even though it Brenthaven does not manufacture it any more http://www.amazon.com/Brenthaven-Edge-Sleeve-Black-MacBook/dp/B000FREJQO/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0 . Here are a couple pictures of it.

    It fits very snugly around my 13" MBP. I can drop the MBP (while it is in the bag) from 2.5 feet (although I do not recommend it) and there will be absolutely no damage.

    I think mine is the checkpoint fastpass, and it's not really a bag or a sleeve, I guess it's more like a case. However, I cannot find the bag online. It's black on the outside It has a pocket that zips up at every side with a zipper in front of that. On the inside of the pocket it has a space for three pens or pencils. I keep my MBP owner's manual folder in it. Very handy if needed. The interior is blue with thin white lines that form a random pattern. (I don't know what kind of pattern, but you how a computer chip looks... a lot like that "circuitry.) There is also zipper designs (dee-zines, the word didn't look right when I spelled it out.)

    I've got a Tech Air messenger bag, seems well padded with air pockets so feels secure.

    Finally found a bag I'm super pleased with - The Eagle Creek Global Commuter

    It's '3 in 1' Bag
    - Backpack
    - Messenger/Shoulder Bag
    - Briefcase

    All in that in one bag! Actually it's a '4 in 1' I carry it as a sling bag with the second backpack strap tucked inside :)

    Also bought this to hold my iPad, charger, camera, wallet, phone etc when don't need to carry a laptop. I think it's "manly" enough once it gets broke in and dirty. It's a small backpack which suits me more than a leather, murse looking shoulder bag ...

    You haven’t mentioned your preferences. Usually people get backpacks or briefs to carry their laptops to work. If you prefer the former, check out these computer backpacks from Briggs & Riley. However, if you’re the briefcase toting variety, you may like their laptop brief collection.

    Tom Bihn Vertical Brain Cell carried in my regular backpacks(Osprey). I have an incase plus that I like also but when I leave the house it's the brain cell I use. I'm rough on things.

    Timbuktu or Pelican, depends

    I second the Timbuktu suggestion for everyday bike commuting but I also keep my 15" mbp in a padded incase inside that (it's not the laptop version msng bag afterall).

    However, as I also work in tropical forest and travel a bit I use a Pelican 1080 hardcase. Water tight (yet breaths) and quite slim. Quite good to keep your comp. on an airplane floor as well.
