I’ve tried every (no hyperbole) laptop bag out there. Most are ugly. Many are poorly made. Few are thoughtfully designed. There is, however, now, one clear winner. There is one best bag.
Without question, as an owner of 13 different imperfect laptop bags, I
am happy to report that there is, at last, a clear winner. CRUMPLER.
Designed in Australia, they just opened a shop in NYC where I am a few months back. I’ve tried every (no hyperbole) laptop bag out there. Most are ugly. Many are poorly made. Few are thoughtfully designed. There is, however, now, one clear winner. There is one best bag.
They sell 5 different sizes of laptop bags for different sized laptops (eureka). I own 2, the second to smallest (ROLLONOTES: for a day in the city) and the second to largest (VERYBUSYMAN: for a week on the road).
All of them have so many zippers and compartments you have separate, padded, isolated zones for your camera, ipod, cords, lappy, pens, and more (i.e. 12″, 15″ or 17″). The padding on these bags is insanely better than anything on the market. The bags are waterproof. The colors rock. And people very literally stop you on the street to say: dood, cool bag, where do I get one? There is no downside to a Crumpler. And no, I don’t work for the company. I’m just a bag freak. There is a PDF of their catalogue available.
And make sure you get the current models of the bags I mention above that are pictured in the catalogue. The closeouts on eBags and other wholesalers are from an earlier model year. The 2003 bags are the ones to buy. Go Crumpler Go!
