Loopbag laptop backpack
Loopbag has begun shipping a new backpack designed to carry portable notebooks like Apple's 13-inch MacBook alongside other important gear. The new Vanguard Backpack is designed around Loopbag's patented "Total Opening" frame, with one waterproof zipper that runs around the entire bag to produce a harmonious round shape as well as a peculiar design. The bag allows users to access the contents from anywhere -- via the main pocket or secured back pockets -- while hiding the zipper's pullers. Environmentally-friendly "Airguard" nylon offers a soft cotton-like touch and a matte aspect that is waterproof to protect contents in the multiple pockets from potentially damaging weather conditions. Loopbag's Vanguard backpack is priced at $130, and is available from kolobags.com. Loopbags also introduced accompanying Messenger and Street bags in the same style.
