i dont think you want to put a helmet and a laptop in the same carrying case. That could do some damage to the laptop if smashed up. Fry's has some decent backpacks for laptops.

sorry can't help then... i would just get a decent backpack for the laptop and then just safely set the helmet somewhere at the office. Or you could look for a discreet helmet case to carry in your backpack that you could pull out when u get to your destination.

i dont have one, but i did special order one for a customer. as someone said, yeah, its outstanding as far as quality. when it came in it was alot better than we thought it would be. granted its HUGE, but its got room for a laptop a helmet, and plenty of other stuff. the squad backpack is actually cheaper than the urban tank bag, but the squad ishas a whole lot more bang for your buck.

take it from a professional gear ... i say go for it.

I've been looking for one as well, but I've got a behemoth of a laptop(hp zd8000) and can't find a pack that will fit it.
