Messenger and hard-case offer options
Booq have announced two late additions to their holiday line of Mac-oriented computer bags, both designed specifically for the 15" MacBook Pro: the messenger-style Cobra Courier M, and the sleeve-style Cobra Hardcase M. Both feature genuine Nappa leather handles, but differ greatly in form and function.
The Cobra Courier M ($195) features a removable padded laptop sleeve, while the bag itself has a jersey lining and a 1680 Denier ballistic nylon with a water-repellent coating, a rubberized bottom and a YKK waterproof zipper. The shoulder strap and removable pad feature silicon-grip to help keep the bag from falling off the shoulder. It also has a handle that can double to secure the bag to a luggage cart, and the bag in total weighs 3.5 pounds.
The Cobra Hardcase M ($125) is actually only a semi-rigid case, made of water-resistant 1682D cross-weave ballistic nylon, with gunmetal buckles, clasps and trim, along with a YKK zipper. The laptop itself is elevated for cooling, sitting on a quilted interior with bumpers to keep it airflow and ports accessible. The bag itself weighs 2.9 pounds.
Both are available now for immediate shipping.
