Making the grade at

Back to school time in the US of - Check out for the LOWDOWN!
What's to be Embarassed about this bag - Crumpler lightweightified their signature notebook tote line, then made it in a multitude of college friendly colours. Classic.
I have used said bag - they are an awesome camera bag for a biggish D-SLR with a standard zoom or prime lens attached - I love to lug my camera in a big empty bag - the cam goes in the laptop slot.
The Dreadful Embarrassment, being the larger 17" (Mac) version is somewhat more useful: e.g. Laptop in the slot, and a padded camera insert (Bucket for Barney Rustle) stashed in the cargo area. Much more the overnighter, load lugger.
The Moderate is just that - tiny. More of a techno man-hand-bag thing, it has languished somewhat since the demise of the 12" Mac Power and iBooks, yet it's back to the bag of the moment status with the current ascendence of the micro portable, for whom it is a rather generously sized domstile.

Sizes, colors not to mention the styling and legendary durability? Thus concludes todays lesson!
