Carry Your Stuff Giveaway

case-logic-dlbp-1141

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.

  1. Love the bag and that iPad sleeve is awesome. They would both come in very useful. Thanks for sharing the great finds!

  2. eBags is definitely one of the better online stores out there for bags and accessories. You picked out some great items for everyone!

  3. i love these red accesssories – fun! these ipad sleeves are very useful. i had something like this..i used it some much, it wore out.

  4. These are great items – would love to have them all! The red colors are super eye-catching and I love the idea of a spill-proof case for my iPad – I could totally see my water bottle spilling on mine like Jill mentioned!

  5. Fabulous items – this is a really useful post, as always, but even more so! All the items I have been looking for. Thanks for that!

  6. I love the bags and especially love the eye-catching red.

  7. Way too cool. Love the red.

  8. As my iPad has become my go-to cookbook, that waterproof sleeve would be great to protect it from kitchen spatters.

  9. What a cute bag! I love the color!

  10. Cool! I am always worried about keeping my gadgets dry…. I almost killed my camera by getting it wet; definitely don’t want to do that again to any of my stuff!

  11. I’m Elizabeth and I’m a bag-a-holic…Love the reds and clears. What a cool concept. Jill brings up a good point…I’m often shoving everything together without the thought of spillage.
    Cool stuff, as always!

  12. Awesome carry on items! Love the Ipad sleeve! Wonder if they make them for the Nook Color as well?

  13. Most people will probably assume that water-resistant sleeve would only be for times you want to use your iPad near water… but my first reaction was that perhaps that could have saved me! I got my first iPad last summer, shortly after they were released. And then I went to a conference… and my water bottle broke open in my bag and drowned my iPad. Not only did I become known as the “gal who destroyed an iPad” at the conference, I was also the first person that called apple having destroyed an iPad with water. It was a major bummer…

    The camera case & backpack are great shades of red!
