True, although the #30 (and smaller) are pretty small to contain a laptop -- but now with today's tablets, I suppose it could be more eyecatching.

It's amusing in hindsight, I agonized over being inconspicuous in dress and camera gear before my first trip to Italy and carefully worked out a rig. After i got there, I found places like Venice were crowded with Asian tourists bearing huge DSLRs and camcorders, hung on straps emblazoned with the brand name. I had no problems -- and surely the miscreants would hit them first!
