Jill.e Designs Laptop & Messenger Bag Review
Introducing laptop and messenger bags by Jill-e Designs. You know I am a bag and shoe fiend, so their handbags caught my eye at Showstoppers this year. After having dropped a heavy laptop on my toe, I felt the pain of not having a convenient laptop bag that didnt look like a suitcase or a manly bag. From the E-Go collection, i tried both the Laptop Tote and Tablet Messenger bags. Each is made of weather-resistant leather, and come in both solid colors and Burberry-esque plaid. The treated leather also seem scratch resistant. The Jill-e logo on the front is a classy metal disc. I KNOW I will use both a ton. So far the Tote has gotten the most use due to laptop, but the messenger bag is just as useful for a day to day work bag.
Each bag has an outer compartment, large enough to hold an ipad/tablet, files, or other random belongings. The tote also has an additional compartment that a zipper bottom opening, doubling as rolling bag attachment. Each bag has an inner compartment: the tote for its laptop (fitting up to 15″), and the messenger bag for ipad/tablet. Both have an additional zippered inner pocket, two cell phone/misc pouches, pen holders, and a very handy key ring/id holder. All inner compartments are slightly padded to help protect your equipment.
Bottom line is that they have a classic, simple style, but still look stylish enough. The tote fits so much of my nonsense that at work they look at me sideways as I keep revealing more gadgets and compartments. I have already started looking at models in the Classic Collection. They do also have the Jack Collection for men, which I am recommending for all my male friends. You will also see quite a few camera and equipment bags in their collection. Check them out!!!!!
