The grey isn't that bad, but the khaki is a horrible colour.

I prefer the black STM I have for my iBook.

I think the crumpler school hymns are still the best for toughness from what I can see of th STMs

I'm actually looking for a laptop bag and was going to order one tomorrow... the STMs just seem so cheap - last time I bought cheap laptop bag it just didn't provide enough protection. I mean, the STMs are sexy, but do they provide enough protection?

I was actually looking at buying the Targus thats featured on the Apple Store. I saw one in Harvey Norman (exclusive to Apple Store my ass) in Brisbane CBD and it looks pretty good, and relatively sturdy...

are these different from the old wetsuit ones or just the same in different colours?

Do any companies make a sleeve type case similar to these that has a divider in it? That's what I need, room for my powerbook, and a notebook and a pen. That's all I need for uni. But nobody I have found makes a suitable case :(

i want to get one... my current STM glove's zipper is VERY annoying to dry get around the edges and to try squeeesing the corners into it... simply because the zipper only runs along one edge... this on runs down 2 :)

Polyurethane foam - not neoprene - so it is a little more rigid.

Personally, I just need scratch protection, so I bought a cheap neoprene sleve ($10) to throw into my regular bag. My bag holds my 12" iBook quite snug - even more so with the sleve - it's like they were made for each other :)

they've got the "high resistance polyurethane foam" so they provide a lot more protection than the normal gloves. similar to these...

I've jumped in with this local Melbourne company.

Really liked the screen cloth idea and the bag for the power.

How about my Oroton sleeve I posted ages back?

This is what I use when I don't want to carry a bag.
