When I travel, I like to go light. My laptop always comes with me and this is where I have an issue. My laptop is a widescreen version and once this is packed in its own bag, I realise I now need to take a further bag with all the usual changes of clothes and travel bits.
I had been on the lookout for something that could accommodate a large laptop as well as my required accessories.
I found an absolute belter!
This Barneys Leather Satchel Bag is available from ILove2Love.com. With a height / width / depth ratio of 29 / 42 / 16 cms, this comes with the vital statistics I was looking for. Wide enough for a laptop and deep enough to pack everything I need for a couple of days.
The bag is 100% real leather and has clearly been produced with care and respect. The packaging that it came with confirms this.
I love the multiple, differing size internal pockets, which seem to be made for certain items I need to carry. The detachable shoulder strap is a good thing too. Without, it smartens up the appearance when and if required.
The double buckles are a decoy for a magnetic catch system underneath. This secures the opening as you would expect but is a lot quicker than undoing the buckles.
So many good things to say about this bag, but the most important being I can now travel lightly with just one bag – and look very dapper at the same time.
Head to www.il2l.com to see the bag and lots, lots more!
