Backpacks for Computer/Laptops +Gear

Any recomendations for laptop Backpacks?

looking at stuff by Booq and Swissgear/wenger - any other recomendations?

i like lots of compartments and must be big enough for 15"laptop plus soundcards, cables, ipad, magazines, tools, food etc

water resistant/waterproof essential as is comfort...

The Clavia backpacks for the Nord Modular (original and G2) are very nice.
The original nord mod backpack is the perfect size for my portable kit:

metric halo 2882, macbook pro 15, power adapter
headphones, a manual or small book & mp3player or phone

Note, there is no excess carry capacity beyond what I've listed above.

The G2 version is bigger and If I owned a ULN-8 and 17" laptop then I'd go with it:

Nord GBG2 Nord Logo Gig Bag GBG2 B&H Photo Video

The only thing I didn't like about this design was the zipper. It zipped down when you were wearing it, meaning if a thief came up behind you he could unzip the pocket just slightly and let the goods fall out... Would have been a better design the other way around.

They come up on eBay occasionally for ~ $50-60 usd.

I personally use a crumpler bag. Expensive but very high quality. The one I've got is discontinued, but to give you an idea of what you can fit in the really big ones:

13" MBP
NI Maschine controller
NI Kore controller
M-Audio Oxygen 25-key controller
Cables, mouse, etc.

It was a tight fit, but I was able to pack it all into it at the same time... (seriously!!!)

If you get an Eastpak like this one:

Be sure to fold the straps up at the ends and sew/superglue them there. Many a time have my straps come sliding right out of there and once is enough to put a dent in your 9 day old MacBook Pro. Trust me heh

I totally LOVE my Swissgear Synergy. It holds my 15" MBP, 3 portable hard drives, headphones, cables, manuals, water bottles, etc.

I don't leave home without it.
