If you’re one of the brave souls hauling around a 17-inch MacBook Pro on a daily basis, do yourself (and your back) a favor and ditch the single-shoulder messenger for the Thule Crossover Backpack ($100). This oversized pack offers an integrated padded notebook compartment that can handle even the most mammoth of mobile Macs, a heat-molded, crush-proof SafeZone for phones, sunglasses, and other potentially breakable gear, water-resistant nylon construction, die-cut EVA shoulder straps with mesh covering to make things as comfortable as possible — not so easy when carrying 6.6 pounds of aluminum, silicon, and glass around — and compression straps for when your load gets unwieldy.
