When Altego released their line of Coated Canvas Cyan laptop bags, the company had three goals in mind: simplicity, protection, and style. Today, we will find out if their laptop messenger bag for 15″ laptops accomplishes those goals.
Let’s take a tour around the bag, shall we?
The outside of this bag is crafted from water resistant canvas. The shoulder strap is made of seatbelt material. Overall, this bag feels quite sturdy, but not heavy, either.
The front flap has a locking mechanism that I have never seen before- a self-locking twist buckle. This works fairly well, but occasionally part of the mechanism goes into locked position before I buckle down the flap.
The iPad pocket is in the middle
The inside compartment contains three mesh pockets for stowing laptop charging cords, a cell phone, etc. Opposite these pockets is the iPad pocket. This is quite well padded, and is lined with soft material. Two smaller pockets flank the iPad pocket.
Behind these pockets is a large zippered pocket, also quite well padded.
The laptop section in back has a distinctive look and excellent protection. The waffle padding on the outside is very, very tough. You should not have qualms about the safety of your laptop in this bag! 🙂
As you can tell, this bag’s blue accents give it a slightly sporty edge. I would say it looks professional enough to take to work, but casual enough to look modern to take on errands, to school, to the library, etc.
Overall, Altego has created an uncomplicated, durable laptop bag that looks appropriate for work or play.
