    Default DJ Bags, could anyone recommend me one?

    Title says it all really, I've been getting more gigs lately and I've started feeling a little self conscious turning up with all my stuff in a milk crate!
    My requirements are many, and as such I cant seem to find the bag that suits me best.
    I'll be bringing minimum 15 records, with that amount likely to grow as I try to buy more vinyl and less flash-in-the-pan crap from Beatport that I'll play out 2 or 3 times.
    I have a 15" Laptop, an Audio 4, cables, headphones, an uberstand-a-like (folds up to approx the thickness of about 5/6 records) an X1 and needles to bring, as well as 24 CD's.
    I also have a budget of less than 70 pounds... that's the big issue here! I'd like a traditional DJ bag, none of this backpack shite (need to be able to get at my records)

    I understand that I may not get all of those requirements met, and to be honest the closest I have found are these, but they don't satisfy all of the requirements and that's why I'm asking you lovely folks before I drop dolla on one!

    http://www.udggear.com/shop/product....902D75D&pid=10 (doesn't have pockets for the rest of my gear apart from laptop+records)
    http://www.juno.co.uk/products/stone...ies/469978-01/ (fits everything but my X1)

    and my personal favorite thus far:
    http://www.juno.co.uk/products/magma...red/254604-01/ (holds everything but my laptop, though pockets galore and extra space inside could be used for X1 and Laptop stand until my collection grows)

    any suggestions? has to be available in the UK, not paying ridiculous shipping!

    thanks

    Get a UDG slingbag. Fits all that stuff no problem. Plus heaps of pockets.

    I used to use mine for records when I played just records. Then my macbook, records and serato box when I used serato and now use it for my X1, machine mikro, audio 8 and 13" MBP.

    I'm pretty sure it should fit a 15" laptop.

    I re-purposed this for DJing. It doesn't have a traditional "DJ bag" look, but it works well for my needs.

    I originally bought the bag for 2 to 3 day business trips. It held a laptop, some files, a couple days of clothes & essentials. It will fit into an overhead bin. The wheels are spaced wide and it rolls easily. The shoulder strap is OK...but I don't use it when the bag is loaded.

    It holds the following:

    Kontrol S2
    15" laptop + power supply
    Audio 2 (backup)
    Crane Stand Pro
    Headphones
    Car visor 10 CD sleeve
    Cables, cables, cables
    Misc crap

    I generally figure 6 records per 1" of width...for planning purposes. But it has been a REALLY long time since

    The laptop sleeve is in the middle section. This pocket is adjustable width with a velcro closure. The laptop sleeve is about 1.5" thick...depending on how much other stuff is crammed in there. The back section is about 4" thick and could also hold 12" records, but they would need some extra padding or support.
