PC World is full of laptop bags, cases and neoprene sleeves – the office equivalent of a rugged, well-worn fleece. It is IT manager heaven but not really the kind of stuff that’s going to stop you looking like an IT manager or rural sales slave when seeing a new client or starting that new job.
Enter Jill E designs and the Bennett bag, available from Apple, such is the quality of laptop bag luxury. It’s an ideal bag for the commute, from your daily train journey to Terminal 5 at Heathrow. Padded internal pockets show a little embroidered icon for laptop, phone and tablet. There’s even a leather business card holder so you can be sure that your name and details are always inside if you lose your bag.
Helpfully the satchel style design straps on the front are magnetic and lock in reverse, so you can easily and securely loop them around the metal clasp when holding the bag on your shoulder. Spending a week with the bag, we found it durable, comfortable and great value against rivals who may boast the quality but can’t match the well thought out internal pockets and rugged materials.
Big enough to hold a 15 inch laptop, it’s also big enough for a fresh shirt and a few overnight bits and pieces for your single night European work jaunt.
Bennett by Jill E designs is £269 and is on sale now.
