Welcome to my review on this premium designer Kipling laptop carry case.
** Introduction **
It was by chance that I bought one of these bags, I just happened to see one at my local car boot sale which was still in the plastic bagging, wasn't unsure what type of bag it was at this stage until i looked closer and opened it up, I found out from the lady that it was infact a computer laptop case which was just the thing I was in search for at the time.
The bag looked, felt and smelt new and had a £10 price sticker attached to it, after getting ready to walk away after a few minutes of bartering I managed to get it for a reduced price of £7, which the seller really wasn't to impressed with but hey it was a sale. I didn't mind too much as I was looking to spend around a tenner anyway but didn't really want to pay this for one found at the car boot.
Anyway it wasn't till a few weeks down the line after I'd purchased that someone commented on the bag in public asking me if it was a Kipling designer, I hadn't even heard of this type of brand before so had no idea. After doing some research I found out that my £7 bag happened to be worth considerably more. Im not sure exactly how much but I believe these were selling for around £20 or more so either way I had manage to get it for half of the retail value and it was still in new condition.
The bag has a black casing and black fur inside for protection for your laptop, with an easy pull zip around the edging it literally takes seconds to move your device in and out of its case. I am really impressed with my purchase and would recommend this type of style of bag to anyone interested in protecting their gadget.

Kipling LACQUER BLACK laptop case for up to 17 inch models.
From the Working Life Collection.
Has a black furry lining and is slightly padded.
Has a Kipling label inside.
Actual measurements are 16.75 x 12.4 - it will take my laptop which is 14 x 10.5 inches.
Currently selling on Amazon and Kipling website for £42. Some prints reduced to £29.40 on Kipling site.
Comes in various lacquer colours and also some patterned fabrics.
I will sound very extravagant when I say I have had two of these - one in lacquer red and one in lacquer black.
I managed to get these at super bargain prices on Amazon a while ago - they were selling for just over £6 - but I ordered black and red arrived - so was told to keep the red and just pay for a black one - so in effect I had two for £6. I would definitely not be paying full price for them.
That said they are very nice - the lacquer black looks very sleek and professional - though I do find the red a bit too bright and colourful for my taste.
This is just a standard zipped top laptop sleeve. It has the Kipling logo on the front and each comes with its own little monkey keyring.
The inside of the sleeve is back short furry fabric which is also slightly padded so the laptop is good and safe and protected. There is no handle or strap with this sleeve of course but it is very lightweight before putting the laptop inside. I have had some really heavy laptop bags which, when the laptop is inside, are almost too heavy to carry.
I use mine mostly at home and it is nice at the end of the day to put my laptop back into its own little sleeve for the night.
The monkey can be removed and used elsewhere so these could then be a unisex bag.
These sleeves are very attractive and much less utilitarian looking that lots of other laptop bags.
A great accessory if you also use Kipling handbags - as I do.
