Wow, what a rich, info-laden thread. This has been an outstanding resource for me as I tried to find the perfect bag (which as you all know is not easy...). What I landed on was the Brenthaven Pro...

It's too bad that you've run into that. My experience is entirely contrary to that, and Apple Store employees are one of the reasons I like going to Apple Stores. But I've only frequented the Apple...

Everyone knows that Apple Store employees are only hired if they agree to be a part of Apple conspiracies and cover-ups... ;)

You're right, Pete, I've had really good luck with the Amazon return policy in the past as well. Enjoy the new addition to the family!

Are you referring to the diagonal reflections? Those aren't visible in anything but those particular photos/angles/zoom as well as one or two others -- what I don't see are HORIZONTAL lines. Maybe I...
