Lavishly living life out loud means I travel everywhere with my tech. What is not always the easiest is making sure it all gets there safe and sound. I invest a lot of money into my computers, tablets, phones and so on, so I want them protected when we travel. There are a lot of options on the market for laptops, but not all of them really deliver on what they offer. This particular bag, and brand really is great if you travel a lot and need your items padded. Technology needs love and care and this delivers.
I have been looking at bags that offer padding, and different designs, but I wanted to really make sure the laptop is taken care of and that everything I need for the day is with me. I want a work station and I want the bag to look chic, trendy and colorful, to express myself a bit, because I am sassy( I love that word!) I need a bag to take care of what I have, my laptop and phone and tablet because caring for my stuff, allows me to get the most out of it and that is frugality!
I am on the go with my job, 24/7, and wherever I go, my laptop, tablet, cell, charging devices, pens and more travel as well! It is often a struggle to keep it all together because I slam everything into a laptop carry sack. There is no padding, no pockets for the extra stuff that has to come and honestly, the strap digs into my shoulder. Leather gets scuffed and has to be maintained. The laptop, tablet and board are all ‘must haves’ for me all day because as I jump from client to client and place to place I use each one separately, so everything has to come! I have all of my items with me, but they are not always accessible, until now! Sometimes I will run into an appointment and only need my laptop, but with my current bags and their design, it is take everything or take nothing so, I tote it all.
What I have found is a FUSION BAG. If you have a laptop, a cell, chargers, tablets and if you carry them together at ANY point in time, this bag is the Mercedes of all bags. If you have a need to carry your laptop separately, or you just want to leave all the other stuff behind, this bag has the option of disconnecting the inside carrier pouch that is padded with your laptop in it and just carrying that and it has a carry strap on it! You won’t believe the functionality of this bag. Before I tell you anymore, let me tell you about the company Fusion Bags and then you will have a great understanding of why these bags rock!
Fusion Bags creates designer ‘gig’ bags for musicians and producers around the world! The bags are high quality and provide excellent protection to the instruments. The other side of this is the look of the bag—stylish, and trendy with cool color choices. The individuals who create these bags are very experienced in their fields and provide excellent quality, needed items and first class service to every customer they provide to!
The name Fusion Bag has a high standard of quality, durability, and style all built into designer bags that really are tough bags that work with active lifestyles, movement and transporting items from place A to place B. When your stuff is stored in the Fusion bag, you know that you don’t have to worry about whatever is in tow because the bag can take a bang, and the items inside will be resilient because of the built in padding! Fusion is a durable, rugged bag!
MY BAG FROM FUSION F1 Mega Workstation 17″
When I was offered this opportunity I had to have someone pinch me, and my laptop even began smiling! Suddenly a new level of protection for my laptop, tablet and phone during transportation, and not just a new level of protection, a rugged bag, that looks chic. It is not just that, the bag itself is a bag within a bag. Sometimes, I just need to run into a meeting, show a client something on my laptop and nothing else, this bag allows me to separate a bag from a bag and the computer remains housed in padding and has a carry strap! This is impressive! What this means to me is that I do not have to lug the kitchen sink with me at that point and I can just take the piece I need, speak with my client, present and leave. I look organized and the bag is durable. The inner shell is created of 0.59 inch high density lightweight foam padding and a soft satin finished lining.
THE CARRY STRAPS
The bag itself can be carried by the backpack straps or by a shoulder strap. There is a rear compartment which will conceal the straps when you are not using them! Another feature with the straps is that they were designed to fit around the pull handle of airline trolley bags which will aid you when traveling and free up your hands and back. The bag is all about you and ease of carrying your items.
What is a bag if it is not durable? This Fusion F1 Mega Workstation provides a water resistant rip-stop material. The material will hold up against scuffs and abrasions. I had it rubbing against ski boots, poles, straps, velcro and more while we just recently traveled and NOTHING bothered it.
The handles on it are comfortable and strong. The handles are made up of rubber and the zippers all have pulls on them for ease of use, from the smallest hands(kids) to the adults.
THE INSIDE OF THE BAG
The inside of the bag is important because you are putting items in there that cost you quite a bit and you want them protected so the fact the the inside is created with an inner shell of 0.59 inch high density lightweight foam padding and a soft satin finished lining, means that your stuff is going to be protected while being moved around, your investments are in safe hold!
I am an over-packer, a stuffer, and a ‘what if?” person so to me, not having enough pockets on a packing piece is like the kiss of death. I think I would rather over-pack and tote even though I know better. Nonetheless, this bag was made for me, because the amount of pockets on this is like wearing 5 pairs of jeans with tons of pockets..(ok so i exaggerated just a bit). Honestly though, you will be able to bring everything you need with you and then some and all of the important electronic devices are actually tucked away, snug and safe.
“ZIP AWAY” – the Mega Workstation Bag has this feature. The bag opens all the way up, because the zipper opens up the entire bag, it is so incredible! You can get to everything YOU have in there. What is inside are pouches, slots, places for all the things you carry. I stuffed my notebooks, pens, note cards, business cards and more in there. You can also put your tablet in the pocketing that is created just for it and it is inside of a padded sleeve. The sleeve is zippered tight into the bag. Again, your items are secure and safe. The sleeve on this particular item can is removable and allows you to carry that bag separately. This is what I keep talking about, you can carry your laptop separately and leave everything else behind. It is unique and it is a time and clutter saver! You are not going to find this on any other bags! The one part of this ‘ZIP AWAY’ is for your laptop and the other is for your tablet. It is perfect for taking the only pieces you need once you get to a destination.
Here is the sizing of this incredible bag. Length of the bag is 17.91″ and the Width is 14.96″ while the depth boasts 7.87″. If you want to know the weight it is only 5 pounds. (that is not with your stuff in there:)
SO how do you use this?
If you are off to a trip, you have to fly and pack up, simply pack this bag up and get to your destination. You bag will have everything you need in it and you will be able to get to your cell phone easily because there is a compartment for it. Once you get to your place of residence(hotel, lodging, etc.,) simply open up the bags zippers, and ‘ZIP AWAY’ the inner compartment that has its own carry strap. This will bring out your laptop and tablet. You can simply travel light as you go to your meetings or you can choose to bring along the whole stylish bag. This bag is durable and ready to travel. I have used it, while toting kids, skis, luggage, and more and I am completely pleased with it. I have been taking it everywhere I go so I am organized and I look smart! Lavishly live life out loud and tote your tech safely everywhere you go!
