Booq Cobra Pack
At this point, it’s possible to carry an entire mobile office in a bag smaller than a traditional backpack—a MacBook Air, iPad 2, camera, and some chargers all take up less space than old Windows laptops. But there are definitely folks who have to—or want to—carry around larger MacBook Pros and all sorts of other toys. If you fall into that category, Booq’s Cobra Pack ($265) may just be the right solution for you.
The bag is made out of ballistic nylon with a waterproof coating, so it’s designed to stand up to the elements. There’s room for either a 15” or 17” MacBook Pro in the dedicated laptop rigid-frame compartment, and of course there are plenty of other pockets for all your other goodies. In fact, the interior layout is optimized for notebook computer accessories. Here’s one feature you don’t see from competitors: each bag has a Terralinq serial number associated with it, so if it’s ever lost there’s a chance you’ll be able to retrieve it. We said “a chance.” It’s hard to imagine anyone willingly giving one of these bags back once it’s disappeared.
