This one definitely fits in the “computer bag that doesn’t look like a computer bag” category. Crumpler’s The Cashmere Blazer (US$165) is a messenger bag that conceals a built-in computer sleeve that’s well padded. It fits up to a 17-inch notebook but it works just fine with my 15-inch MacBook Pro too.
The best part about The Cashmere Blazer is that it’s a perfect weekend bag because of its large size. In addition to a PowerBook, MacBook or iBook you can easily pack a weekend’s worth of clothes and accessories inside. Traveling with one bag has its benefits, especially when you can carry your MacBook Pro and a weekend’s worth of clothing in a single bag on a commercial aircraft (just remember to ditch the liquids!).
