Review: Superslim Laptop Bag from Booq

I feel like it's graduation day. I just traded in a schoolbag-style backpack for a much more professional Superslim Laptop Bag ($60) from Booq. It's just the right size for carrying around a large iPad up to a 15-inch MacBook, with the necessary cables. There are still slots for a magazine (like iPhone Life!) and pens, note paper, etc.

Like all of Booq's bags, the Superslim is well built and uses quality materials including zippers, hooks, and strap. At $60, it's remarkably affordable considering some Booq bags are over $200. You don't get a ton of storage, but it's not meant for that. Still, while it's slim, it's also expandable. The interior is a black and tan plaid that is quite stylish. I wish I had a shirt with that pattern!

Another nice feature is the Lost and Found capability. You can register your bag and if a good Samaritan finds it, they can reach out, anonymously, to return it and ideally the contents!

Pros

  • Well built
  • Quality materials including zippers, hooks, and strap
  • Slim but expandable
  • Quite affordable
  • Lost and found capability

Cons

  • Hard to decide which one to get!

Final Verdict

The Superslim Laptop Bag from Booq can handle most of your daily needs and it won't break the bank.
