Four new bags for storing iPads, accessories
Booq has launched a new line of Cobra laptop and iPad bags, consisting of the Cobra Case L, Cobra Brief L, Cobra Slim L, and Cobra Courier XS. The Cobra Case L is a full-sized briefcase capable of holding any 15 - 17-inch MacBook Pro, and features two exterior quick-access pockets, a large back magazine pocket, one main compartment, and a front exterior pocket with integrated plush lining that's capable of holding an iPad. Multiple smaller compartments are also included for storing chargers, hard drives, or similar sized accessories.
The Cobra Brief L is also capable of storing a 15 - 17-inch MacBook Pro in its main compartment, as well as an iPad within the front pocket. For added bump and scratch protection the laptop section also comes padded and quilted, as well as lined with a smooth fabric. Additional quick-access exterior pockets and leather-trimmed interior pockets are included as well, and can be used for storing accessories and documents.
Offering a smaller more portable design is the Cobra Slim L, which features ergonomically contoured Nappa-leather carrying handles, and a padded, scratch-resistant iPad compartment. It's similar in its MacBook Pro support as the previously mentioned bags, and includes multiple accessory pockets that can also hold an iPhone.
Last on the list is the Cobra Courier XS, which is specifically designed as an iPad messenger bag. It provides a padded interior compartment for protecting the iPad, as well as a main compartment for storing an iPad charger or other small accessories. An integrated exterior back pocket and front zippered pocket are also included.
Each Cobra bag features a 1680 Denier Ballistic nylon exterior with water-repellent coating, along with a seatbelt nylon shoulder strap. They also come equipped with a Terralinq serial number to help owners find lost or stolen bags. All four bags are available now from Booqbags.com, and range in price from $145 for the Cobra Courier XS, to $345 for the Cobra Case L.
