Exspect MiBag customisable laptop bags review
Available in 13-inch and 17-inch sizes, the larger of the two reviewed here, the MiBag from Exspect offers numerous storage solutions. Very much a bag for those who like to travel with room for an abundance of accessories, the 17-inch courier style option particularly has more pockets and zips then you could possibly ever need. Effectively two bags in one, as the interior sleeve, more bag than sleeve, can be used on its own and again includes several useful storage pockets and zips. Remove the inner bag completely and the main bag is a useful lifestyle bag for carrying everything but the laptop.
Build, a nylon and neoprene mix, appears rugged and reliable, zips and adjustable shoulder strap equally solid. Both the main and inner bag come with protective rubber feet for additional protection. Retractable carry handles proved a comfortable fit when on the move and we found the various pockets and zips easy to access while travelling.
All my colours.
More business like than fashionable, Exspect does offer an array of fascias - blue, brown, green, grey, purple and red are available to buy at £9.99 each, which add a splash of colour to an otherwise sober design. These are relatively easy to fit and certainly look attractive, but at £9.99 each might prove an unnecessary additional expense. At a penny under £40, the 17-inch offers good value for money though. The Exspect MiBag's are available from Littlewoods. More details can be found at www.exspect.co.uk/mibag.
Exspect MiBag customisable laptop bags are a worthy choice if you have plenty of kit to carry on your travels. The customisable fascias are a novelty but the real appeal here is a heavyweight champion of a travel bag that looks and feels solid and sturdy, and packs a punch when it comes to storage options.
