I like Booq products, I’ve got one of their netbook bags and it’s very, very nice. They’ve just announced the new Cobra hardcase for 15” MacBook Pro and the Cobra Courier M messenger bag for 15”-17” MacBook Pro. Price are up there between $125 and $195, depending which you select, but I think they’re well worth the cost as they are very high quality bags and offer good protection.
With a hard molded ballistic nylon exterior and a quilted interior, Cobra hardcase provides durable protection for your 15” MacBook Pro. Slide the top of your laptop screen under the case’s contour lip and the screen conveniently opens each time the case is unzipped. Non-slip bumpers elevate the laptop to maximize airflow and provide access to all ports, allowing you to keep your laptop in the case while working on-the-go. Genuine Nappa leather handles are sewn into an infinity-loop strap that runs all-around the case for optimum durability, while the silky-smooth seatbelt nylon shoulder strap provides unsurpassed comfort.
