There are all sorts of laptop bags and cases with a few accessory pockets—they’re almost always preconfigured and incapable of changing over time. But your carrying needs may change a lot from day to day. That’s why we like Cocoon’s Grid-It! Wrap for MacBook Air ($50). Available in both 11” and 13” variations, it’s a clever way to carry your computer and organize the stuff that goes with it.
On top of the standard pocket for the MacBook Air, there’s a grid of seemingly random overlapping elastic straps. Some are grey, some are black, and they’re all textured with rubber bumps. You choose which accessory goes where; the straps adjust to however you want them, using the bumps to grip your cables, iPhone, and other goodies. Depending on your needs, an included flap may adequately protect your stuff, or you can toss Grid-It! Wrap in a bag or backpack to carry it around. In any case, you’ll know you’ve got everything securely strapped in just the way you want it.
