    I'd love to get a laptop bag that doesn't feel huge yet still offers good protection. I know there are a billion threads on the subject, but I've not seen one devoted to the search for a small 15 inch bag, so I'm throwing this out there. :)

    Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Like a sleeve with handles or a messenger bag type?

    I've been using this case for 4 years now and it has never failed me. It is extremely light, offers decent protection, has a big pocket to store things and is comfortable to carry around. I highly recommend it :)

    Not a weakling thing, I just want a bag that isn't ginormous and huge. Not looking for a sleeve though, I need a full bag with pockets, document section etc. I've got an STM Alley for my 13 inch whitebook and I love it. Am kind of hoping to find something for the 15 inch machine that isn't notably larger (a 15 inch umbp can actually fit in the 13 inch STM Alley case, only it's slightly too tall - but width-wise, it's perfect, so I'm hoping to find a 15 inch that's barely larger).

    what about a laptop backpack. it will help maintain good posture and you can stick whatever else you want in there and forget about it....

    Plastic shopping bags are pretty lightweight.

    Speck has some pretty decent looking stuff...

    If I didn't already buy more bags/sleeves than I need I would definitely check them out.

    Incase makes a "bag" that is a sleeve with a handle and pocket? It does scream "laptop" though.

    I adore the Shuttle I bought from this company:

    http://www.highergroundgear.com/

    The build quality is terrific and it can be carried as briefcase, messenger, or backpack. Very light, minimal. Raised pads inside so it can serve as lapdesk and keep the laptop cool. If more space is needed for gear, their LapTrap has added pockets.

    That's just plain stupid. Plastic is bad. Use the brown paper shopping bag instead.
