    I made a similar bag about 3 years ago out of one of those old jeans that come up to your belly button, which made it deeper. I used the legs to make a shoulder strap. It's an excellent book bag but I don't have a laptop *yet*...

    its a good idea, but it needs a second layer atleast. the buttons and zippers and other thicker points make for concentrated pressure points if it ever gets crushed against something.

    For me its not large enough, its strong enough, my laptop is about 8 or 9 pounds, but it works great so i can't complain.

    I think this is a great idea, but unfortunately my waist isn't big enough for me to make one for my 17-inch widescreen laptop.

    ...Or maybe that's fortunately my waist isn't big enough...

    I'm sorry. you should use a bigscreen tv attached to a desktop computer as a laptop. then you'd feel like a twig!

    Great video and project. I can't wait to use it! Of course, I could just be saying that because I have a Macbook and an iPod ;) Seriously though, great demo!

    you could also use the bag for any of your other stuff if you don't have a laptop, or your jeans are too small for a laptop.
