This post is LONG overdue! A couple months back, I had the super fun opportunity to be on a Google+ Hangout On Air with Timbuk2 chatting about upcoming trends and their awesome custom designed bags. Afterwards, I got to use their customize tool to design my very own laptop bag. It was so much fun! Especially since I could finally say adios to my boring old plain black Dell bag that I was using. Customizing my bag was SO EASY, but deciding on what I wanted was SO HARD! All the various styles, colors options, prints and designs were super cute and the combinations you can create are endless so being as indecisive as I am, it took dozens of different combinations to finally narrow down what I wanted. Here’s one of the other combos I made (the tool is so easy and fun that it’s super addicting):
The bag I customized was their Laptop Messenger – it has tons of room for my 15″ work laptop, iPad, and all the chargers, mouse and can even fit a couple binders/folders and my personal belongings (I use it as my personal bag in addition to my carry on when I fly). I even throw in my camera sometimes when traveling with it. I added on the Tough-Tek Strap Pad which was the perfect amount of extra padding for your shoulder, especially when I carry so many gadgets! I also added the Shagg Bag which fits & protects both of my cell phones (work & personal) plus any credit cards or IDs.
I apologize for the grainy/blurry pictures of me 🙂 lighting inside of Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport wasn’t working with me. These pictures were from a month ago when I finally had the chance to put my bag to use during a trip to Sin City. By the way, Timbuk2’s bags are made in San Francisco, CA and have a lifetime guarantee. They also have a great recycling program! Timbuk2 bags are definitely an awesome gift idea for that special someone who wants something unique, custom designed and fashionable for traveling/commuting!
Special thanks to Timbuk2 for including me in their Google+ Hangout on Air and letting me design my very own bag!
