hmm i'll check out some of the mission workshop stuff. looks affordable. Seems like Bagjack NXL is already in the 3rd arm ballpark which makes it seem less of a choice compared to acr anyway. Killspencer and lexdray just don't do it for me though. I think the lexdrays are made real nice, but still looks like every other messenger.
edit: I should also mention that I'm looking for something that looks like it has good support/stability and doesn't fling back and forth when walking, not flopping, etc
