I'm looking for a hyper-light, functional laptop backpack. It needs to be tough but very light at the same time. I need your help to find a brand and model that fits this description!

I use a 15" Macbook Pro. My current backpack I bought in January of 09' in an Apple Store. It's made by Wenger. While I can't find this particular model online anymore, it's most similar to this one: http://www.wengerna.com/transit-15-computer-backpack-12396
At the Apple Store website, perhaps oddly, not a single Wenger backpack is even listed anymore... no idea why.
I love this current Wenger backpack I have. It's built to last and has an excellent set of pockets and zippers and I love the quick-access pocket near the top. Its biggest problem by far and the reason that I'm looking for a replacement is its weight. The damn thing is really heavy. It's heavy even when it's completely empty! Once I put in a book or two, my Macbook Pro, its charger and the rest of the stuff I usually carry around, it simply gets heavier than I'd like.
The idea, then, is to find something similar in terms of functionality... except with the factor of weight front and center as the most important feature.
I searched the site but found nothing that helps me answer this specific question.
Thanks in advance!
