Building on last year’s Boa nerve, Booq is back with Boa nerve stealth ($195), a more rugged version for use in harsher outdoor conditions. Featuring an upgraded heavy-duty tarpaulin exterior and rubberized zipper pulls, the upgraded design is more weatherproof and durable in all sorts of outdoor settings. The bag also features a magnetic strap system to easily switch from loose to secure, along with a stabilizer strap for an ultra-tight fit, making it great for users on the go.
The sleek look has also been updated with darker fabric both inside and out, and the bag holds more gear than it would appear to at first glance, with a collection of functional storage options, including a well-padded laptop pocket for a 15” MacBook, three flapped pockets with Velco closures, and a large zipper pocket. A fold-over flap on the outside includes reflective trim and strap buckles, and includes a zipper pocket inside with a built-in organizer for pens, notebooks, and other small items. Side pockets provide storage for a U-lock or water bottle, and a zippered pocket can also be found on the front flap for quick access to smaller items. Booq also offers a unique Terralinq service to allow owners to register their bag’s serial number to help recovery in the event that the bag is lost.
