Commuter laptop bag and Bluetooth??

I am looking for the best options to have a comfortable commute this year.

I have been using the free Buell bag that was given away last summer for test riding. It is a messenger type bag that sits horizontal and has a belly strap to hold it in place. It does an OK job but I am convinced that there is something better out there. I think that a backpack type bag would be better but i am not sure. I am eyeing the Axio hardpack line.

What do you guys recommend??

Do any of you guys use a Bluetooth headset? I recieved a new Blackberry from a promotion and would love to utilize it fully during my commute with a Bluetooth. I am just unsure of which model to pick from.

BTW: the company will be picking up the tab so $$ needs to stay reasonable yet very functional.

i have a targus backpack ... works welll kinda thick but it is to protect the laptop

i also use an LG HBS-110 bluetooth stereo headset (although i hate in ear headphones and it about rips my ears off when i pull my helmet off) the sound works great i have not tried to call anyone on it while on the bike tho

Josh is an unknown quantity at this point
I use a codi modella backpack. Works alright. Under $150 for the newer models. This one isn't sold anymore I think. Squarish, but compact. I can strap it to my magnetic tank bag if I don't feel like wearing it.

Here's the same one.

The Icon Squad backpack is great, I snatched mine for about $80, has a laptop compartment, helmet space, and a whole bunch of room in the main pouch. I've done some weekend trips with it and had plenty of room.

I use one of these on a daily basis. It has a laptop storage compartment and alot of extra room. It also has a compartment for small electronics with a hole for earphones. Has a waist strap as well as a chest strap. It also has straps for carrying your helmet. It does pretty good. For $70 it has done a fine job. www.motoemporium.com has them.

I've used an Axio hardbag for about 6 months and have zero complaints. I've got a 15" MacBook Pro that fits in it just fine. Also, plenty of room for power supply, etc.

I have really high expectations. On their website they have a soundtrack switching on and off the noise cancellation feature. It is amazing.
