    Anyone here using a backpack style bag?

    I want to get one for a flight I have to take in a few weeks.

    I looked at Timbuktu's, but not too excited. Any other suggestions?

    You can use most snowboarding type of backpacks. There is a pouch for a water bladder that you can stick your backpack in so it won't slide around.

    I have a LowePro bag that holds up to a 17" laptop and all my camera gear/accessories. Looks like a normal backpack and not an "expensive stuff here" bag.

    Oh I just realized you are looking for a style type bag.

    I still don't understand why crumplers are so great :dunno:

    fucking love mine, get it vertical orientation, and it'll go right in your current backpack in the back, I think 99% of the backpacks that actually protect well look goofy as hell.

    downfall of that is it opens horizontally so you have to remove the sleeve from your backpack to then take out the computer.

    The one i linked is avaiable in a vertical orientation so you can open it and take out your computer while leaving the sleeve in your backpack.

    great bag, not much storage but gets me through the day with a nicely padded computer section and a big enough section to cary a textbook or two and some paper around in.

    the bag i posted above yours is a really nice one strap backpack kinda deal. really simple, just throw it over your head and roll out. the front pocket is great for holding your charger and your mouse, batteries if you use wireless, and other cords. has a cellphone holder on the strap, some pockets inside for pencils and shit, and other little features.
