Case Logic sent me the cutest accessories to check out a couple of weeks ago. I fell instantly in love with the DLBP 14″ Laptop Backpack (above). I’ve tried dozens of ways to carry a laptop – and a few essentials to get me through the flight –on a plane without using up my carry-on limit. But most bags are too small to fit what I need, too awkward to get at while crammed into the seat, or so big there is no room for me in the tiny seat. This was just right. I had easy access to everything I needed on a recent flight and it fit neatly under the seat in front of me so I could put my carry-on wheeled case in the overhead. And when suffering through a layover in the airport I could wear it on my back or rest it on my suitcase as I shopped, grabbed a meal, or ran to my next flight. I could feel the looks of envy from travelers carrying inadequate and back-destroying bags as I moved effortlessly around with my easy-to-sport system.
Here it is packed (with a laptop, sunglasses, Android phone, hardcover book, and magazine) so you get a sense of size (that is a plain black 14″ laptop with a Gelaskin making it pretty). There is still plenty of room for a sweater, snack, small bag of liquids, and water bottle (empty to get through security):
Along with this just-about-perfect backpack – in a stunning red – Case Logic sent a camera case that fits my little Nikon Coolpix point-and-shoot camera perfectly so I could toss it in my purse (or the laptop backpack) without worrying it would get smeared with lipstick. They call this little number the UNZB-2.
And, for any of my readers who recently got an iPad, the company sent me the clever IPADW – 101 Water-resistant iPad sleeve to give away. It protects your goods but lets you see the screen — and even use it — right through the cover.
Post a comment to win the iPad case! I’ll use Random.org to pull a winner before next weekend.
