Default best laptop bag for skating

A lot of nights after work I will skate, sometimes more than 10km. Does anyone have a laptop bag they feel especially comfortable with in cases like this? Bonus points if it can carry an slr camera and a couple lenses.

Ummm, if it is a "laptop" bag or "camera" bag it says, "Please Steal Me" all over it. Something to consider. I think it is best to not paint a target on your back. A good compromise is a plain jane backpack with a laptop liner inside to protect whatever you are carrying.

The luigino bag has plenty of room for a lap top they even have a special area for that and trust me this bag is a freaking house

i've got a very cool bike messanger bag i use as a work briefcase, and of course, it would suffice very nicely on the trail as it has both a shoulder strap and a waist strap.

It's this really nice tangerine orange, made by Trager, and i got it through an online company that i can't remember the name of right now.

If you want more info, i could probably photo the bag or dig up the co. name.

My wife and I both have High Sierra laptop backpacks, which look like average backpacks, so there's no "steal me" issue. They're comfortable, since they have shock-absorbing shoulder straps.

You can find all kinds of laptop bags and laptops at http://www.ebags.com. They usually have great sales too.

I'm not too worried about that - seeing me in the middle of the night, i'm not the first person you'd like to think about robbing.

Yah, with the bolts in my neck and awkward gait nobody bugs me either.

You’re willing to skate with an SLR and lenses? You are far braver than I. As much as I would love to get some pictures when we’re out skating, I’m always nervous about skating with what I affectionately refer to as the “bag of glass.”

Yeah, same. I use pretty good padding on my current bag, and I'd happily use my body as a cushion to keep my hasselblad from hitting the ground. Riding with my cam gives me a lot of changes to take shots i might normally otherwise see.
