Made from the same fabric that's used to carry gear on high-altitude expeditions, this durable laptop sleeve fits laptops up to 15.4".
In this busy world where people are inundated with "things", I had decided that less is more. So I started by carrying less stuff around with me, which meant I had to downsize from my big backpack to something much simpler and less bulky.
I basically travel to and from work each day in my car so I don't really need a big bag to carry my stuff in. I also wanted something slimline and something I could easily sling over my shoulder when I needed my hands free to carry something else. For work I really only need my trusty 15" Macbook Pro, power adaptor, mouse and a few notes. I decided to give this North Face Base Camp Laptop Brief a go.
The first thing I noticed was the fantastic padding around the bag. Anything I put my laptop into must have extremely good padding or I won't trust it. So that was a good sign. The rest of the bag was pretty standard, it has a front organiser section which is a bit tricky to get into but I got use to it fairly quickly. The organiser section has a keyring hanger, which I actually use to keep them out of my pocket - I never used that feature on my previous bags for some reason but this one seems to work for me.
The shoulder pad on this bag is actually extremely comfortable. I have used the bag on a few interstate trips and it definitely helps to have that when you're dragging another piece of luggage around.
All in all, I'm very pleased with the bag. I've been using it since August 2009 and will be keeping it for awhile.
“Fast reliable service.”
“The above question should have a maybe option in it. Even though i selected next day delivery, paid the $18. 95 and placed the order before 1pm it wasn\'t dispatched and received for over three days. At that point i had left on the trip that i needed the laptop bag for. There was not refund or explanation which is a bit crappy. I could have chosen a slower postage and gotten it when i came back for all the good the express option gave me.”
“Great service and selection of products, i have bought several times with never a problem.”
“Excellent service and fast delivery. Much appreciated.”
“Video review of each product was very informative whilst trying to choose my backpack, although i knew what product i was after, the information provided on the functionality of specific components of the bag is very beneficial and it set your website apart from others.”
