Spec me a weekender Laptop Backpack/Duffel

I'm looking for a sturdy strong weekend bag to house my stuff when i travel to and from my house share back to either my girlfriends, parents or other location on a weekly basis. I've been just stuffing more and more stuff into a Belkin laptop bag that wasn't designed for such abuse. Overflowing i usually come back to realise i've left something behind or its fallen out in an effort to squeeze everything back in. This week i've got no in ears

I usually live out of a bag on the weekend so it needs to house all or most of the following:

13" MBP, iPad, Chargers and small accessories, Shaver small wash and toiletries kit, change of clothes or more, keys, wallet and various other nick nacks left in pockets. I've spent a while looking at various brands online but i haven't found anything to really justify spending so much


Ideally i would like something to be
  • Aesthetically an average bag and not advertising valuable contents
  • Padded laptop sleeve, organising pockets to separate valuables
  • Large enough for above items with additional space for more if required
  • Quality durable construction
  • Easy to transport/carry
  • No more than £65 (although i'm open to being convinced)

Suggestions?

I'm not quite sure whether this will be big enough for you but I recommend this and only this model of Jeep backpack.

It has a padded separator in the main storage area which is, I think, meant for a laptop, 2 reasonably sized side pockets, and 3 pockets, not 2 (their description is wrong) on the front one of them being fairly small. I've had mine and used it daily for just over 12 months and it's still in good condition.

Edit: More colours available here.

Oakley Kitchen Sink.
Over your budget, but can be had on ebay for around the £100 mark, I've just sold mine as it was way OTT for my daily stuff, but it was large and well 'ard.

Found this that i really like, i owned a fusion bag once before and it was deceptive how much you could squeeze even into the smaller ones, Im not sure how well it would work for non electrical bits though

I have loved my Eastpak Steward since I got it, perfect cabin bag size too for flying too, but they do not make it anymore . Has a padded laptop pouch and a huge main area for actual clothes, with a mesh side pocket inside that. Has an exterior zip pocket good for documents and two open pouches great for bottles:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Eastpak-Trav.../dp/B00336EI8I

It is not a bag you want to be lugging all day, but toting between places on a car, train or plane it is perfect.

I googled, a guy is selling special edition new ones that have added straps on Ebay but the design is lairy (mine is black) but the price is great, honestly if mine were to break today then I would have no issue replacing it with one of these despite the lairyness, it is that good:

*edit here is another on ebay, the photos show the pockets: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Eastpak-Co...-/351472966778

That looks perfect! The design is a little out there... i think i could live with it

I instantly recognise the brand as being reputable so that interests me

If this lot will deliver from France this is a bargain, and discrete!
