    Ahh, been a long time since I was last here. So much to update. I'll be working on updating the list over the next few weeks. If you have new bags you can also PM me. Thanks for all.

    Evan at Chrome sent me a pic. I posted it in the thread http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?p=1404764#post1404764. He informed me more pics of their bags will be available in a few weeks, so I requested those also

    Ok so got really busy 2 years ago and never posted comments on my Tom Bihn bag. Well the short is holds up well, the new messenger strap is preferred if you are carrying that way.

    I'm still light in Dealer and Review sections. If you have additional links pass them on and I'll update the list. I expect over the next several days to continue making updates.

    So without further ado here ya go

    This is a very good review of the Very Busy Man/Horseman bag by Crumpler.

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=21467

    This is also the UK version of the Crumpler site
    http://crumpler.co.uk/2.0/site.html

    I have the Cheesy Disco 15 inch widescreen bag by Crumpler and i use that for my 15.4 inch Mac Book Pro and it fits perfectly. I don't think that this bag is available in the US though. The Cheesy disco bag is like the Sticky date bag by Crumpler only that it is a slightly smaller version of it. The Cheesy Disco comes with a separate sleeve inside and it is a good bag for a 15.4 laptop. I was concerned how it might fit before i bought it seeing as it was advertised as a 15 inch bag but it fit fine with some room to spare.

    It was a toss up between the Crippy Duck/Luncheon Crumpler bag and the Cheesy Disco for me but i opted for the Cheesy Disco.

    I also tried the Double Charge bag by Crumpler out but i felt that bag was a bit to big for me height wise so i exchanged for something a little wider with not so much height.

    rachuk,

    Nice, that is a good review with some good pictures. On the Cheesy Disco bag do you have room in the depth department. My laptop, ACER 8204 is a little deeper than the MBP.
