A few weeks ago I started (a rather exhausting) search for the perfect laptop bag for my new Macbook. I wanted something super cute but functional and after lots of searching I finally settled on a few options I found on eBags.com. I had the hardest time deciding which one I wanted but finally just went with my favorite color – green. Kailo Chic makes this “green circles” laptop tote which is constructed primarily of canvas material with faux leather trim.
This bag comes packed with a lot of storage options, almost too many. I can see myself loosing things inside this bag but I also know I won’t run out of room for accessory storage either.
One the exterior of the tote there are two storage compartments. The front is a large zipper pocket, great for placing things you need to keep handy. On the back side is an open top pocket with a zipper on the bottom so you can slide the bag over the handle of your luggage.
Inside you’ll find a large laptop sleeve which eBags claims to fit a 17″ Macbook Pro but I find it hard to believe. My 15″ Macbook fits very, very tightly. A fabric velcro strap secures the laptop in place while a padded divider protects it. Opposite the divider are 4 credit card slots.
Then you’ll find an assortment of pockets throughout the inside starting with a large zipper pocket almost as wide as the bag itself. Additionally there’s a clear zipper pouch, 3 elastic pen slots and an elastic pouch designed to fit a water bottle. Although, I can’t see myself putting any liquids next to my laptop, that’s just asking for disaster.
While I adore the bag and certainly think it’s worth the $63.99 it sells for on eBags.com it isn’t perfect. The bag arrived with obvious damage to the faux leather strap. I have to wonder if I had ordered the bag directly from Kailo Chic if it would have arrived in this condition even though it would have cost $79.99.
So would I order from eBags again to avoid paying full retail price? Ehhh not sure. I like being able to browse all the different brands and styles offered by eBags but I don’t want to trade quality for a discount either.
*Note – the product was purchased by myself and I have no relationship with eBags or Kailo Chic
