What’s on YO BUM? A new type of computer bag.

Tired of the same old computer bags? Looking for a back pack computer bag, but don’t want it to look like a backpack? If your answer to these questions was yes, then you should check out BBP bags (Bum Back Pack) site .

BBP provides “urbanomic” back packs that don’t look like backpacks: they look like messenger bags or briefcases with the added benefit of easily converting from backpack to messenger style bag with really easy steps using their Bak2Pak™ carrying system. How easy? Check out the video on the homepage to see just how quick and easy you can convert these bags.

I first became aware of these bags when I went looking for a new computer bag last April and came across a review of these bags on the gadgeteer website here. I’ve used a Kennsington Contour ™Roller for a number of years and love the bag, but was looking for a carried bag when pulling a roller bag isn’t appropriate or will prove to be cumbersome. I also wanted a bag that wasn’t such a pain in the back. After spending some time checking out the review and this site, I then happened to run into a State Bar of Wisconsin member who had one of the bags with him while he was attending a seminar here at the State Bar Center. His experience was positive, so I ordered a Hampton model in Abyss Blue Tango to evaluate in actual use.

I’ve been living with this bag now since April and will be writing a long term use review in March 2008, but so far I like this bag and the good far outweighs the bad.There a number of well thought out features which are detailed here. One caveat I will give about these bags – if you are looking for a lightweight bag, then a BBP bag is probably not for you: the small bags start around 3lbs and the large bags top out at 5 lbs. What you get for all of that weight is good materials and great padding for your notebook and your body. These bags have been included in CNNMoney.com’s 4 must-have gadgets  post.

The folks at BBP are offering a 15% off coupon that can be shared so here are the instructions to take advantage of this before November 30, 2007:

While you will have to wait for my full, long term review, if you’re in the market for a bag to help ease your back problems or a unique Christmas present for someone, then you definitely want to look at these bags.
