People buy notebook PCs for the advantage of being mobile (if that’s not the reason you bought one then you should’ve got a desktop), however you need something to carry your £500 investment about in. That’s where Waterfield notebook bags step in to save the day. They maybe American but they are the only company that makes the type, size and colour of bag that I like to use and so are worth the import costs.
With prices in the region of $79-$89 (aprox £54-£61) + $25 postage (aprox £17) the VertiGois most certinly the best notebook bag I have ever bought.
With my previous notebook bag falling apart from over use I was looking for a vertical bag with a external pouch and single large compartment, the VertiGo has just that and so ticked the first box.
Next I was looking for something in a particular colour in this case green, luckily the VertiGo comes in a wide range of colours and material types. Some other examples of colour choices include Black Leather, Lead, Taxi (Yellow) and Blue.
Next up on my requirements list was long life, my previous bag only lasted 6 months then again I was carrying at least 4kg of kit about in it every working day. All the same this time I wanted something that would last. So I took a look at some of the other reviews of the bag and found in one particular review that the reviewer had been using hers since 2001 (much longer than the 6 months of my last bag) and had been through every kind of weather (including a hurricane). Again another box ticking and I am another who can testament to the bags ‘never give up attitude’.
After that the rest was just extras including the bright yellow interior (making it easy to see the contents of your bag), the business card holder (much easier to get a card out of your bag than wallet), strong zip at the top and overall style.
If your not sure about which size bag you should get keep an eye out for the ‘Select laptop manufacturer’ feature on the VertiGo page. Or if you just want more information take a look at the FAQ page at this link here, or just drop the Waterfield guys a e-mail by clicking the ‘contact us’ link at the bottom of their website.
