    Handle on ID bag

    I'm looking for a nice new bag for my nice new 15" Powerbook. All I tend to carry with my current PB is the power adaptor (+ bulky UK plug) and a mouse, so I don't need a huge case.

    One of the options for a new bag looks like the ID + brain cell. It looks pretty nice!

    However none of the descriptions or pictures I've seen of it on the net seem to cover the carrying handle very well.

    Since I often carry my existing powerbook case by its handle for short distances, I'm interested in knowing if the ID's handle is a simple strap of webbing, or padded in some way.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks!

    Chris

    AFAIK it's not padded per see. But is rather a nylon webbing cylinder with some sort of stuff inside it. A short tube of PVC tubing would be my guess. This means the handle has a rigidity and a size which give it excellent comfort, but it's not really soft.

    Hope this helps

    That's pretty helpful, thanks.

    I think given the amount of time I want to carry the bag by the handle - and I suspect I use the shoulder strap on my current bag more than I think - the handle on the ID will be fine.

    Cheers,

    So now I've got the bag, I can confirm that the handle is quite a tough piece of plastic tubing inside a webbing "sleeve".

    It is fine for carrying the bag for short distances. It would be nice to have a slightly squishier handle but not exactly essential.

    Cheers,
