yeah, see i'm looking for something that will have a padded laptop compartment, so that it can take a hit. i'm not going to let it fall 5 feet, but shit does happen and i don't want to break it.
I don't really like the vertical orientation of the bag though, it makes it look like a purse.
i looked through some of their other bags.. the nomad was fine, except it didn't have a laptop compartment. it just gave you a laptop sleeve and expected you to use that. that's no different from what i have.
the other messenger bag they had didn't have enough space for non-laptop stuff. (books,binder,etc)
