    Could you throw up a few pictures with the m18x inside so we can get an idea of how exactly it fits?

    Would be much appreciated.

    My sales rep is sending a replacement Orion BackPack. Not a big fan, but the options are few. The Targus above looks decent;)

    Just bought the Orion M18x backpack on Amazon after watching the prices for a few days. It seems to go up to $93-94 during the daytime, and is as low as $86-87 some evenings. Of course the prices the other sellers list at affects the Amazon.com price as well.

    Just a heads up for those wanting to buy, you can probably save a few bucks by waiting and watching for the $86-87 price. There's also a $30 off offer when you apply for an Amazon credit card, too, making it an incredible deal.

    Added and added the Citygear and groove backpack to "probably" fit as well on the list.

    Is the upmost side protected? I'm using an old XL until my replacement Orion comes and there is zero padding at the top of the sleeve because the M18x exceeds the length of the sleeve.

    Tech broke my laptop and I don't have my camera at work.

    Yes it exceeds the length of the sleeve by about an inch or so (same as the XL you are using I would guess). I use the Alienware bag that came with the lappy to wrap it, then use the velcro strap over the bag and laptop. It has about an inch or so of space between the top of the bag and the corners.

    Edit: Forgot to mention the rain hood thingy adds an extra 3 layers of cloth? to the top side so even though its outside of the sleeve its still has a few layers over it.
