    I'm happy with the Outlier jeans, but can't say that they are the best thing in the world. They definitely travel well and don't suffer from the problems of damp cotton so many other options do. For...

    Microsoft Outlook/Exchange/Office365 isn't standards compliant. Its also the most virus ridden. I'd avoid it like the plague.

    The Cadet is padded on the bottom and back and front faces of the main compartment and I chose not to use a sleeve or cache. Thickness shouldn't be a problem. My MacBook Pro 15" at 9 3/4 x 14 1/4...

    Cadet (at least mine) is padded back, bottom, and between the main compartment and the front compartment. I don't use a cache or sleeve with one laptop.

    I can carry two 15" MacBook Pros in a Cadet without any issues along with a bag of dongles, cables, and a mouse, save for the weight. I don't use caches and only use a sleeve on one when I'm carrying...

    I've got a Small Cafe Bag that works great, though I find that I use it less and less over time. Anything much bigger and you might as well carry a briefcase that you can also carry by its handles.

    The lockable zips are one of the few downfalls of the earlier versions.
