It’s just another day and I am at another meeting, but today is different. Usually, I go to my meetings, with a huge, over-sized backpack that has more padding in it than a football players padding and my petite frame is overwhelmed, engulfed in the bag, while creating an akward, unorganized looking professional. My first purchase was a great bag that offered neon colors, heavy duty zippers and the ability to carry my laptop, and all its pieces with plenty of padding, but the backpack, yes, I did say backpack is larger than my back, bulky and makes a less-than appealing appearance. I have to say at my age, I should not be carrying a backpack as I look like I am battling my age and can’t decided if I am a college student or a work professional. When this fabulous Shiny patent leather bag with white piped trim arrived on my doorstep I got a bit giddy as suddenly fashion could match with technology. Ice Red Bags offer a great blend of style and fashion while providing a great way to transport your technology.
In my world, this bag can serve more than one purpose and that makes it a ‘frugal’ consumer purchase, I could use it as a purse, but that is only one application. I love this Shiny Glossy bag to be used to transport my laptop, iPad, iPad keyboard, flash drives, and paperwork that I have to transport everywhere I go.
See the bag up close and personal here on my video.
Let’s start with the look of the bag. No matter which color you choose from the Ice Red Bags, they all will shine and that makes them this year’s hottest fashion trend as you will see things shining. The black patent leather bag is shiny, and dresses up all my outfits. The patent leather is sleek, and timeless and I don’t look like a student going on a hiking trip with my laptop attached to my back, rather, I have a classic looking bag that matches with all of my outfits, business or casual.
Inside this great laptop tote you will find a laptop compartment(padded) and with a closure, as well as other pockets for your iPad, and zippered pockets that I place my flash drives in. The handy open pockets are perfect for my iPhone and mouse. The bag carries a 17″ laptop, and keeps you organized. What is this bag made from? Fashion glossy vinyl and it’s measurements(in the laptop compartment) are 16″ W x 11″H x 2″D and the bag itself is 17″ W x 13″H x 4″D. As I had mentioned before it comes in 4 shiny colors: black, red, pink, and silver, each with rich shine. The Velcro closure tab is perfect for securing the laptop in the bag, just in case you forget to zip it and place the bag in your car on the front seat, and come to a halting stop, the laptop is still IN the bag, even if the bag hits the floor.(Umm, yes personal experience here!) The padding in the bag is enough to keep the laptop secure. I would not suggest banging the bag around, as it is padded but not that thick and the protection offered is for placing the bag down, not for tossing it like a baseball.
The outside zippered compartment is perfect for all the things you have to get to right away, and because it zippers and offers additional pockets I keep everything well organized! There are pen compartments, a zippered compartment, and an ID holder, all easily accessible.
The Ice Red Bag, Shiny Black Patent and Leather is stylish, cool and chic and let’s this professional momma stay on the move and keep her tech with her, without worries of harming the laptop while on the go.
