okay, i know there is a sticky with about a million links to different bags however i need to limit it down so here is my criteria:

preferably messenger bag (or a nicely padded backpack-preferably a brand name one)

slim

nicely padded

some room for storage (mouse, mouse pad, pen, paper, a cd or 2...stuff like that)

and a really nice style, no boring black leather bags....


and finally under $100 (give or take)

If you insist on messenger bag with stylish design,

- crumpler
- timbuk2
- waterfield cargo, cosmo
- tumi

you can choose one of them with your type.

If you are looking for backpack with simple design, good padding, cheap price, I definitely recommend incase backpack.

- incase backpack
- crumpler base toucher
- booqs : not good customre service
- Tombihn

Hope it helps

I bought the Brenthaven shoulder bag and highly recommend it. It's pricey, but is made for the PowerBook and holds everything in organized compartments. The 'book sits in a sturdy, padded sleeve that is removable.

It's already saved my PowerBook once.

They also make a backpack. but I'm looking at the Booq bags as well.

Are there any hard shell waterproof packs designed for motorcycle riders?

I will second the Booq recommendation as well as Radtech's offering:

http://www.radtech.us/Products/Luggage.aspx

They have backpacks and messengers.

Did anyone else catch the irony in this statement?

Just kidding around here but, cmon.... if you had at least not written 'houses' plural it coulda worked at little better...
