Oakley Sand BagI recently found a great home for my 12″ PowerBook in a bag that was never designed for this use… the Oakley Sand Bag!
The Oakley Sand Bag has a padded puch that fits the 12″ nearly perfectly, admittedly the zipper stretches around the corner just a tad, but it’s really OK. The bag is very comfortable wtih tons of space for extra stuff. There’s a detachable pouch for your cell phone, and it has a dedicated padded “music player” pocket (e.g. iPod) with a headphone pass-through, and several outside pockets for things like a water bottle, keys, etc…

Waterfield Designs Racer-X 17-InchOne of my all time favorite PowerBook luggage manufacturers is Waterfield Designs. They make the type of bags that just reek of quality. You can tell that their bag is going to be solid from the moment you hold it in your hand.
Attention to detail is important at Waterfield Designs and you can tell. Everything from zippers to hardware to handles are super tight, functional and seemlessly integrated with the rest of the bag. The 17-Inch Racer-X is the perfect fit for the Aircraft Carrier ‘Book leaving just enough room for your accessories and some reading materials…
