Because I am stuffing so much in my laptop bag including the cosmetics essentials like lip gloss, concealer, loose powder, perfume, and toothbrush/toothpaste, aside from the usual cargo like credit cards, chargers, USB drive, external hard drive, a digital camera, and some documents from what is supposed to be my paperless, fully digital universe, it tends to amass so much bulk from the previous slim type backpack. That previous laptop bag was screaming for a justice of space and mercy of rest.
So I gave it what it deserves, a rest in the cudgels.
That compelled me to go and hunt for its replacement killer. At the Samsonite Podium, a boutique chain run by Stores Specialist Inc of the Rustan Group of Companies, I found a bag astutely fitting to meet my mobile lifestyle.
The bag, Samsonite Locus Backpack. It has an adjustable laptop sleeve that can fit laptops with sizes 12.1" up to 15.4" which is made of a thick, fleece-like material - Tricot, a less harsh but sturdy alternative to Velcro straps. It has an EVA(Ethylene Vinyl Acetate)-padded handle and an ergonomic back panel to make lugging it around comfortable. Not only does it come with an expandable laptop sleeve, it is also actually an expandable bag that you can unzip to expand its main compartment.
And Locus it sounds, it is "low cost" at a price of Php4,450.
