The Good Versatile design and extremely comfortable shoulder strap; excellent for smaller laptops.

The Bad No top handle; bulky look.

The Bottom Line The checkpoint-friendly Mobile Edge Ultra Portable Netbook Messenger Bag is among the most comfortable laptop bags we've ever used--but not everyone will be wild about the design.

A laptop bag lives or dies based on its shoulder strap. Even a great-looking bag, with plenty of useful pockets and extra padding, will sit disused in the corner if the strap isn't comfortable, or is prone to sliding off your shoulder. The $49 Mobile Edge Ultra Portable Netbook Messenger Bag scores big for a heavily padded, very comfortable shoulder strap, plus an airport-friendly zip-open compartment.

We were less impressed, however, with some of the visual elements, such as the puffy black front flap and boxy front pocket. It's fine for college students and casual types, but far from slick enough for the corporate boardroom, or even a fashion district coffee shop.
