Carry case for Mac

My Apple vendor informed me that due to some litigation a few years back (whatever that means, but damn these lawyers), Apple no longer provides a "carry case" for Macs.
He recommended using the box/container with the plastic handles. I personally find the idea silly.
I think a leather kind of satchel like the one Clint Eastwood used to stuff all the money would be just fine.

I was wondering what other Mac users are using. Pics if possible would be great.

I have a backpack style* made by Kensington.




* Great for strapping onto my back on the motorcycle.

Strange,
I would have expected you to use something in leather with shiny chrome rivets

Since it was given to me, I use the Targus backpack. Holds all my electronics quite nicely when I am traveling, with plenty of additional pockets for documents etc.

I don't recall Apple ever providing any kind of carrying case for their laptops (and I've owned several). I was happy with the Tucano Second Skin along with whatever backpack I was using at the time.

or this one:

but I'm strongly considering the first one, what do you think?
