We snow tested our new laptop backpack

           handmade leather laptop backpack 

First sunny day in New York after the last storm and we decided to venture out to snow-test our new laptop backpack

Just as we suspected, goat leather, naturally waterproof, did incredibly well. The laptop, stuffed in the central padded compartment did not get wet and neither did the iPad in one the internal zippered pockets, even after we plonked the bag right in the snow and left it there while we drank coffee in Tompkins Square park in the East Village.

The leather did not get ruined but just dried up and crinkled giving it that nice special lived in feel.

 

This backpack has two internal zippered pockets, three compartments and three external pockets for funny stuff like a flask of whiskey for those cold nights.

We decided to have just one buckle at the front so there is less fiddling around when you need to get inside. We have been asked a few times to make a fake buckle with a magnet under it and, whilst we are still considering it, we decided against it this time because the magnet did not pass our strength test and the laptop

 



went flying out (no damage was done).  One strap seemed like a nice compromise between losing your laptop and fiddling with buckles. For quick access use the front pocket which only has a stud button.  

We have also inserted a penholders, yes we still use pens, and extra long straps to fit over your extra chunky winter layers. For next year, cause sing is almost here right?

This week this awesome backpack is 20% off with code LPT20.

Fashion too is starting to become more meat produce free, and thus invented Vegan Leather. A new alternative to leather and even faux leather and is an ideal way to remain fashionable and yet ethical at the same time too. Vegan leather trousers, jackets, duffel bagslaptop bags and tote bags are now a common site across the high street - but I bet my bottom dollar you would not be able to set standard leather and vegan leather apart if the two of them were to pass you in the street!

Along with the tighter clothes, I seem to be carrying more and more each day. My wallet is always filled with cards, cash and other other bits and bobs. My mobile phone is not the smallest piece of equipment either, and my keys are bulky and really irritating when storing in the pockets of some tight trousers. And do not get me started on the case for my glasses. There has to be a solution to carrying around all of this bulky gear, right? Even for us fellas?

The issue I used to face when travelling away for business was that I never knew what to use to pack all of my weekend essentials. For a weekend away, it always seemed overkill to take a large suitcase.
