A desktop, a MacBook Pro, an iPad, an iPhone, and an iPod, I have them all, and I admit that I have a problem. Obviously, I require a solution: a stylish bag that’s made for toting around a laptop and a tablet, with room to spare for other gadgets. Here comes the Sumo Combo Laptop/Tablet Backpack from Mobile Edge, the solution for the fashionable lady technophile. The Combo Backpack is made to fit and protect both a tablet and a 14.1″ laptop or 15″ MacBook Pro. Woot!
Sumo products are known for their durability and functionality. I’ve tested others before the Sumo Women’s Laptop Purse and the Sumo Laptop Briefcase, and I really like their products. With the Sumo Combo Backpack, the designers have combined the ease I love about backpacks with the styling I love in shoulder bags.
The Sumo Combo has comfort in mind. There are adjustable padded shoulder straps, a padded back, and a quilted back panel. (Note: my slim friend tried on the pack and found it super comfy. Sumo says this backpack is for the active woman’s lifestyle, and I think they’re spot on. The best part of this laptop/tablet backpack is its convenience safely carrying electronics while cycling to work, having your hands free for your kids, or, in my case, dealing with a very needy dog.
More than just function, the Sumo Combo Backpack features design like you’d find in a shoulder bag. The outside of the backpack has side pockets that fit water bottles, and the pockets’ edges line up with the zipper for the large front pocket. This gives the pack clean lines. The bag’s faux leather bottom is slightly ruche, and the top of the bag tightens with grommets laced with a coordinating faux leather pull. A top flap closes with a latch. Its classic styling with a bit of sport: exactly what I want in a backpack with Sumo’s lifetime guarantee.
