“ Brand: Golla „
This is the laptop bag that I keep at home for my personal laptop. I quite often bring home the office laptop and I wanted something that was different to that. So many laptop bags are black, plain and boring. This fabulous bag is none of those things. It is cool! It is a grey colour, which might not sound all that if fervent to black but it is a light grey and believe me, that makes all the difference. My favourite bit of the design is the big chunky letters DNM sewn at an angle across the front. This is on top of a white pattern, which is just in one corner of the bag. It is subtle, stylish and different.
OK, moving on from my rather superficial reason for choosing this bag. It is an extremely comfortable fit. The strap is adjustable so can be worn at a comfortable length. The strap has a section that is very well padded for your shoulder and so this is comfortable to wear for quite a long time. My handbag is heavy so I am used to carrying a weight around! The laptop case itself is lightweight before you fill it up!
The bag fits my 15inch laptop with room to spare. It would certainly fit a slightly larger laptop. The laptop can be secured into the main section so that you know it is safe. I also use this section to hold my magazines. It would hold A4 documents if you wanted to use this as a work laptop bag.
There is an additional large pocket that is useful for chargers, mobile phones, purse and any other small bits that you can squeeze in. It is roomy enough that when I want to take my laptop out with me, I tend not to take my handbag, unless it is a long journey and I really cannot do without certain items. It is certainly large bough for the essentials.
The bag is well padded, strong and sturdy. I have used it a lot since getting it. It has travelled on trains, buses and was even dropped off a sofa in a cafe. It has remained in good working order. No seams have split and dirty marks have been cleaned off without leaving any stains. Most importantly with the drop, none of the contents were damaged. The laptop was undamaged and the charger still works well. It was not a massive drop but still a bit of a worry when it happened. I wouldn't want to comment on how the laptop would fair in a big impact accident.
The laptop case cost me about £30, which is certainly not particularly expensive for a laptop case. I would not expect a case of this price to offer both the style, convenience and quality of this one. In fact, given there are not that many quirky laptop cases on the market, I would go so far as to say this is a bargain.
I have not owned a Golla product previously but over the last few months, this bag has proved to be excellent quality. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone wanting something a little bit different. This bag offers style without compromising on safety for your precious laptop inside.
I received this Golla laptop bag as a birthday present earlier this year. I had recently bought a new laptop so I was given this bag to ensure it was kept safe. I had never had a bag for my laptop before as I usually kept my laptop out, as you would a desktop computer, but that meant the laptop would always get dusty and sometimes scratched. This bag has done a great job of preventing this happening to my new laptop.
The bag is for 15/16 inch laptops. My laptop is 16 inch and it fits in snuggly. There are two compartments inside, one for the laptop which has a spongy feeling fabric around and another for accessories which is larger and is perfect for the charger (at least when I bother to take it out of the wall!) There is also a small zipped area on the inside and outside of the front of the bag. I have put the laptops instructions manual in there. I doubt I will ever need it but its there just in case. Other than the place the laptop goes, this bag is very roomy so all laptop related items can fit in and still have space left over.
The bag is made from a thick denim material and looks really nice in the grey colour. The letters DNM are stiched on in the same material as the rest of the bag and it gives it a unique design.
The bag is closed by velcro. It is a strong velcro and is easy to get open but it won't open itself.
The handle has a shoulder strap which can be adjusted to whichever is the right length. The adjustments are made with a buckle and the strap looks just like a belt.
I don't take my laptop away from home very often so I don't use the handle much. It is a very strong bag though so I imagine it would cope well with the weight of a laptop and whatever else is in the bag. The bag is quite heavy without a laptop in because of the thickness of the material.
I have never got this bag dirty, other than a bit of dust, but I don't think it would be the easiest thing to clean if liquids were spilt on it. Knowing me i'll probably spill tea on it at some point though.
As the bag is for a laptop it is quite big and I never really know where to put it. I could do with it being a little smaller but then I would have to shrink my laptop as well. I guess I'll have to put up with the size, at least my laptops safe.
This laptop bag can be bought from amazon for around £30. I think this is a great price because the bag is excellent quality.
This bag serves its purpose well. Sometimes I forget to put my laptop back in my bag, but when it is inside I know it will be safe.
