A compact shoulder bag measuring just 390x290x130mm, the Be.ez LAbesace is designed specifically for Apple's MacBook or MacBook Air but will fit any 13in laptop and leave room for a decent amount of accessories and personal items thanks to a design that's larger and rigid at the bottom. The rigid bottom keeps the inside storage area from collapsing, making it easy to get at the bag's contents.

The Classic version of the Be.ez LAbesace is black with a bright orange interior to make it easier to find things inside; the Lime Drop version is grey with a bright lime-green interior. The bag is made of 'rainproof' 1682D nylon - in layman's terms, it's good-quality fabric - with waterproof zippers.

The inside of the bag has a document pocket; an organiser panel; and, on the inside of the lid, a zippered, mesh pocket. The outside has two smaller, zippered pockets. The bag's strap looks and feels like a car seat belt - it's sturdy, but has no padding.

On the negative side, the Be.ez LAbesace's laptop area isn't as protective as it could be; although the bottom of the bag is rigid, the sleeve for your computer has just a thin layer of padding.

We also wish there was a water-bottle pouch and an outer pocket on the back for full-size documents; and a thin handle on top would be useful.


A great bag for those who want something compact and attractive while still being able to carry some accessories and personal items.
