any of you use a sling bag? i'm considering trying something as an alternative to my omnipresent messenger bags (i have three; two that i use pretty much constantly)… my neck/back/shoulder area has a tendency to act up at times, especially if i carry something relatively heavy for any distance. this isn't a problem if i'm just going from the car to my office, but if i cart my bag around for awhile and it has my laptop, plus a couple of books, and a full sigg bottle… well, you get the point. my husband suggested a backpack but i'm super-meh about that, because they don't seem very "me" anymore. don't get me wrong, i absolutely love it when people think i'm an undergrad instead of a professor, but that doesn't mean i want a backpack to actively blend in. hee.
anyhow, my pal chris (*waves*) got a bag from tom bihn, and she loves it, so i've been poking around on their site a whole lot lately. this sling bag will fit my 15" macbook pro, and it seems like it might be a happy medium as far as weight distribution goes. can any of you support or refute this idea?
