First Impressions:

The bag is well made, as are all of Booq Bags.  It’s small size and light weight were the attributes that drew me to it.  I liked the looks of the bag and it appeared to have enough pockets for all of my essentials … so I loaded it up and gave it a workout.

 

 

Pros:

  • Very light weight
  • Small profile … just slightly wider than the MacBook
  • Well made
  • Stylish
  • The laptop pocket is better padded than other lightweight cases
  • Low cost

Cons:

  • The only zippered pocket is on the flap.  Small items like thumb drives kept falling out
  • The shoulder strap is one piece with no swivels.  Was not very comfortable
  • The pockets are wide at the top and narrow at the base making them impractical for holding rectangular items such as the power supply
  • There appears to have been little thought as to the size and shape of normal accessories as the pockets were not accommodating

Conclusion:

Although it fits the bill in terms of small size and light weight, the lack of properly configured pockets, zippered pockets and non-detachable, swivel shoulder strap makes this bag impractical for me.  It’s off to the next bag for me as this one will be sold on eBay soon!
