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.
“Great kit bag if you prefer bags that hold their shape when empty. Easy to get at items inside. Only negative is you must undo snap lock to access front pocket. Also comes with waterproof cover for bag which takes up one of the side pockets.”
“Excellent... Service was fantastic.”
“Nice looking website, easy to use, good communication.”
“Great. The website is clear and makes purchasing easy. My booq ipad sleeve arrived the next day (even on standard delivery) and fits perfectly.”
“Fortunately, i knew what backpack i wanted to buy because if not i wouldn\'t have bought it from your website because of the colour in the picture: it is not at all the colour of the backpack.”
“Excellent service, delivery to perth was fast arrived the next day.”
“Yes i received my order thank you very much. Not only were you able to deliver in two days and at a better price, but in the colours i wanted. . . Something that the local stores could not do! I'll use you again for sure. Cheers paul p. S. I've told my work mates all about your site so i hope you get some orders out of them too.”
“Convenien, easy & generally no-nonsense.”
“Perfect... Placed order, order acknowledged, informed of shipment, shipment received, happy with purchase.”
