Mystery Tote with Laptop Sleeve....this really is the name of this laptop bag on the Kipling website. I found this among the luggage at Marshall's with a tag from the manufacturer but no price. I took it up to customer service and had them page someone who took it back to where I had found it. After a few minutes they came back with a child's back pack and told them to ring up this laptop bag for the same price.....$20.00. I was asked if this was OK and of course I said YES!!!
When I got home I looked up Kipling which was on the tag and the name engraved on a round leather patch on the front of the bag. It took me a while but I finally found the bag in the sale section with a retail price of $108.00 and a sale price of $75.60 and I had gotten it for $20.00!!!
This laptop bag/tote gets its name "mystery" from all the pockets and great hidden places in the bag. Some of the great features of the bag are:
**Great size: 17" long by 12" high and 5" deep. It is very lightweight as the body is made of a very durable water resistant nylon in black. The handles are strong and have a leather cover over the top part with the Kipling name engraved into it. There is also a shoulder strap included for trips if you want to carry it over your shoulder.
**On the front side there is a very large compartment with a Velcro closure. Inside this there is a Velcro pocket for your mouse. Next to that is a pocket for your cell phone and one for a pen. There is room for magazines or business folders.
**In front of the above compartment is a separate zippered pocket for anything you want in a secure location. If on a trip I would use it for my wallet, airline ticket, etc.
**On the back side there is another huge compartment with a Velcro closure where you could put any number of things from a change of clothes to toiletries.
**The interior of this bag zips open on the top and reveals a section to keep you laptop with padded sides and two straps that Velcro over it to keep it secure. This entire compartment is removable so when you get somewhere you can lift it right out and have a sleeve for your laptop. On one side are 2 large deep pockets. On the other side there are a set of two zippered pockets as wide as the case. In one section we keep the charger and cords for the laptop and in the other there is a set of headphones if we are on a plane trip and want to drown out noisy passengers or crying children.
We have used this on a number of trips and are very pleased with how great it looks and also has a spot for everything we can think of. Cleaning the outside is just a matter of wiping it down with a damp cloth. I feel really lucky to have found this and gotten such a great deal.
