Sometimes, the problem with mobile gear carrying cases is that they can carry a whole lot more than mobile gear. And this can, in turn, pose a serious problem with organizational issues. It’s hard to keep all your stuff straight when your mobile bag can carry tons of papers and a few books and a large assortment of whatnot besides. If you’ve had this problem, and wish your mobile gear bag just handled your mobile gear, then you’ll be happy to know about the Speck PortPack Shoulder Bag.
The folks at Speck sent me one to review, and I was actually pretty impressed.
The Speck PortPack is a shoulder bag designed for a fifteen inch or smaller notebook, and includes stowable shoulder strap, detachable key leash fob, media player pocket with headphone cord slot, net water bottle pocket, front flap that closes with both velcro and a plastic clasp, along with a variety of smaller storage pockets.
Unlike yesterday’s entrant, the CorePack Fly, you won’t have near the storage space with the PortPack. You’ll have to be much more choosy about what you take with you and what you don’t on this one because you just plain old don’t have the room. But for your mobile gear, you’ll find a great and highly compact storage option.
And at seventy dollars, it’s a better option for your wallet, too. So if you don’t have a lot of gear to carry, or want to keep the gear you have in easy reach, then the Speck PortPack is exactly what you need.
