Sena Commuter Bag review
Apple MacBook owners already know a thing or two about style. That’s one of the reasons they’re proud to be seen out and about with the aluminium laptop with the Apple logo.
It seems a shame to hide your MacBook away when you’re travelling – unless it’s to stop getting mugged – so a suitable bag, backpack or briefcase is a must for the travelling laptop owner. Also read: Best laptop bags.
Sena, the makers of many a top-quality iPhone and iPad leather case, have announced the subtly but suitably named Commuter Bag – a luxury carrier for Apple laptops from the 11-inch MacBook Air to the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina. It has space for an iPad, too, in its own dedicated compartment.
Available in burnished, vegetable-tanned dark-tan Brown or Black leather with gunmetal-finish hardware, the Sena Commuter Bag oozes retro quality charm and satchel style.
Priced at £250 (US$382.94 including $12.99 international shipping from the US) the Commuter Bag is clearly no simple shoulder bag. Maybe only flush Apple laptop owners will feel the need to splash so much cash on a bag, but this is a business briefcase of undeniable style and top-quality finish and detailing.
With ample pocket organization for documents, pens, and other essentials – with rather fetching shirt-style lined interior pockets – there’s not much a commuter can’t carry with them to and from the office - although it's certainly no backpack, so the gym kit will have to be carried elsewhere.
Vegetable-tanned leather ages with a natural patina and darker tone, and so the bag should just keep looking better and acquires a little lived-in feel.
The central space features handy two-way zip pullers. The front pocket has a secure zipper closure, while a rear pocket is fitted with a magnetic closure.
Our one quibble is that we’d prefer the detachable, adjustable shoulder strap to come up a little shorter.
The Sena Commuter Bag will fit just about any laptop of 15 inches or under, but Sena is pushing it at discerning Apple users.
This top-quality leather briefcase or satchel for laptops is a real luxury, equipped with handy organisational pockets and bundles of burnished charm. Turn up for that business meeting or job interview with the Sena Commuter Bag and you'll get admiring looks as well as likely the deal signed off or job offer then and there.
