New styles include: a simple laptop sleeve called Cricket, which features full padding on all sides, as well as a padded lid and velcro closure; Pixie, a backpack with a snap closable, fully padded laptop compartment, spacious main compartment, multiple organizational pockets and a hidden keys/phone pocket; and the Echo, an updated briefcase-style bag with a fully padded laptop compartment, a second compartment for cords, notebook, pens and peripherals, a durable zipper closure, a padded, adjustable, removable shoulder strap, a hidden keys/phone pocket, and comfy carry handles.

All three bags come in water-resistant taffeta with nylon interior, three sizes and three bold prints: an earthy toned Utopia, a blue with pink accented Pacifica, and a red and purple Diablo.

I’ve been carrying around the Echo (Pacifica print) for a few weeks now. It snugly protects my laptop, while holding all the rest of my daily essentials, from phone, keys and wallet to yoga pants, two books, camera and toothbrush. The water resistant material not only protected my gear from a summer rainstorm, but was easy to wipe clean from that New York city grime.
