Skooba Design Techlife Netbook MessengerDec 20th, 2010 | By Simon
Here’s what Skooba Design has to say about the Techlife Netbook/iPad Messenger:
Dedicated, padded netbook/iPad compartment, plus over a dozen other pockets and organizers of every kind—mesh pockets, zippered pockets, and more—hold files and folders, gadgets, accessories.
Fits iPad, other tablets or netbooks up to 10.5″ x 8.5″ x 1.5″ (includes most netbooks up to 10.1″ screen size).
Fast access zipper opening on top lets you access your computer or other items in the main compartment, without having to open the main flap. Perfect for getting your netbook in and out–with one hand and without taking the bag off your shoulder–while waiting in line at airport security.
Front accessory compartment has stretchy neoprene compartments for cords, adapters, portable audio, camera and more. There’s even a special, protective slot for your USB thumb drive so you’ll never lose it at the bottom of a bag.
Water bottle holder stows completely out of sight when you don’t need it, pops out in 2 seconds when you do.
Comes in 3 great color combos, each with distinctive checked lining.
Primary materials: Nylon twill exterior, smooth checked nylon interior. All materials are water-repellant.
Hardware and trim: High-quality buckles, clips, zippers and adjusters throughout
Overall Size: 14.5″L x 12″H x 3″D.
Weight: 24.8 oz.
From the description, it’s hard to visualize how Skooba Design is able to cram over a dozen pockets in a bag that’s only inches bigger than the netbook itself! On paper, the Techlife Netbook Messenger sounds fashionable and functional. It’s available in three different colors: Charcoal/Deep Ocean Blue, Charcoal/Inferno Red and Charcoal/Abyss Black. I’ve got the Charcoal/Deep Ocean Blue and I can’t wait to open it up.
