Vax Balmes review
The Vax Balmes is perhaps the most formal of the Barcelona-based company’s range of smart, classy laptop bags. That’s the only potential minus point here as Vax looks to refine and add a new twist on the traditional means of taking your MacBook from A to B.
Of all the bags reviewed, this one feels the most solid and real, capable of taking a fair few whacks without fear of mashing your laptop’s brains to a pulp. it’s compact and robust, but space is limited, so you’ll need to be inventive to squeeze in leads, iPod, phone and any other extras.
Available in black, red and orange, the Vax Balmes is sturdy rather than stylish and lacks that extra something. That said, this is a very good, reasonably priced laptop bag that does its job. If that’s just what you’re looking for then the Vax Balmes is a fine if uninspired pick.
