I've been using my Checkpoint Flyer with the Absolute strap for the past few years. When I travel for work I'm carrying a large 17" HP laptop with its correspondingly large power supply. When I load the bag up with the computer, power supply, and other associated goodies it can do a number on my shoulder. I was thinking of going to a backpack. It looks like my only real option for a large laptop would be the Brain Bag, which is probably what I'll do. I just wanted to double check to see if I was missing anything.
I'll probably miss the TSA friendly nature of the Checkpoint Flyer, but that can actually be a bit more of a hassle in Europe where you typically still have to pull the laptop out.
Thanks in advance.
