I've been scouring the web and stores for a backpack to tote this monster around.
So far I've found these to be the best bet.

Everki Titan (http://www.amazon.com/Everki-Ekp120-Carrying-Backpack-Notebook/dp/B005LMWP78)

Everki Beacon (http://www.amazon.com/Everki-Backpack-Console-18-Inch-EKP117NBKCT/dp/B002WOBBVO)

Mobile Edge Alienware Orion (http://www.amazon.com/Mobile-Edge-Alienware-ScanFast-Checkpoint/dp/B004YVE1OC)

Asus RoG Shuttle (http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamers-Shuttle-Backpack-Laptop/dp/B005KSZBOC)

I've also looked up what people used for their G75 laptops and results are similar.
I travel often so the checkpoint friendly ones have the upper hand at the moment.
I am also aware that the new Asus RoG backpack is coming out but not sure when.

So what bag do you use?

I almost in the same dilemma. I have the Everki Titan which I needed to transport the Alienware m18x R1(sold) I had. Then I used it for the Alienware m14x R2 (will be sold at the moment) and now I have the Asus G750JX. I see the G750 depth is already on the limit in the Titan.

I need a slightly smaller backpack, but the G750 should fit anyway. An Alienware backpack is not an option (if you don't own one).

My favorite for the moment is the Everki Concept Premium (http://www.everki.com/products1/backpacks/concept-premium-checkpoint-friendly-laptop-backpack-up-to-17-3-detail) but its too expensive and I'm not 100% sure that the G750 fit with his depth

I've read that the Everki Beacon can fit a G75 in the laptop compartment just barely (very tight fit). But looking at the dimensions, the G75 is 16.30 x 12.60 x 0.90 inches and the G750 is 17.30 x 12.50 x 0.70 inches. So the G750 is a little narrower and thinner but an inch longer, meaning that the Beacon may be a good choice. I'm leaning towards the TItan for its checkpoint friendly feature though.

I have a Swissgear bag that's pretty nice which I plan on using for it, used it for my course quite a bit and can now use it with my laptop too :P

I bought Everki Titan. It's big, but has a ton of nice features and G750JX fits easily :)

Pretty sure RoG Shuttle is way too small...

Is anyone else using non-Everki bag, for G750 or G75?

The Everki Titan is really pricey too looking at it, nice bag though but I wouldn't say it's multi-purpose. I use my Swissgear on University trips all the time, with a cheap laptop, 2 extra batteries and all my hiking gear too. Works a charm :P

Everki Titan for the win!! This fits the Asus G750J nicely with plenty of room/compartments for other stuff!
