Title : Namba Gear Shaka Laptop Messenger Bag, High Perfomance Bag for Musicians & DJs, in Olive Green, SLM-GN
ASIN : B002GYVY3A



The Shaka Laptop Messenger bag was created to provide an optimum carrying solution for up to a 15″ laptop computer along with personal items. We call it a high performance bag because of the construction detail and the extreme high grade weather-resistant 1680D poly nylon materials that we use. The evolution of the hand-held digital audio recorder makes this a perfect solution for carrying your laptop computer along with a digital recorder such as: Zoom H4/H2; M-Audio Micro Trak II; Marantz PMD660/620; Edirol R09; Sony PCM-D50; Tascam DR-1; or the Olympus CS-10. The Shaka bag is the most flexible laptop carrying solution that we have seen, with pockets, pockets, and more pockets. It is the perfect every-day bag for transporting a laptop along with all of your personal essentials. Lockable zippers for the laptop compartment provides extra security, a super thick shoulder pad which softens and redistributes bag weight, and even a convenient carry handle are a few of the special features.


Consumer Review
Well designed bag
I use the Shaka messenger bag to transport my Roland Mobile Cube speakerbox, my condenser mic, and my random bits of kit such as my ext hard drive and my extra batteries, metronome etc etc. It is perfect as a supplement to my Big Namba (which holds my netbook and MIDI controller, audio interface, cables, etc), and that is why I give it a 5-star rating.

However, I am not sure if I would trust it with a laptop of any size. It would work, but you would want to be extra careful. It would probably be good for a smaller lighter netbook or something. It is a very nice bag for miscellaneous items that are more rugged than a computer, though…
