The aubergine/cranberry Nylon Compact Backpack from InCase Designs makes a nice complement to InCases' larger Compact Backpack. The Nylon version is smaller with a more trim profile yet contains the elements that make it a viable alternative. It's rated to hold up to your 15" MacBook Pro in its own faux-fur lined compartment.
The rest of the pack features an exterior zippered accessory pocket plus a dedicated zippered iPhone/iPod pocket with faux-fur lining. The inside contains another slip pocket for your iPad. Carrying the pack is comfortable with its padded backpack straps and padded back panel that contains breathable mesh and an airflow channel for ventilation as well as added support and comfort. The pack comes with a one-year warranty from Incase.
