The Spire Mojo is a laptop bag with much to recommend it: it's got ample space and protection for oversized laptops, plenty of pockets for extraneous gear, and it's stylish, not too bulky, and easy to carry.

On the outside, the Spire Mojo has rugged good looks, but an urban feel.

Made of ballistic nylon, the Spire Mojo can handle the day-to-day grind but its fabric is very pliable and easy to clean. The adjustable shoulder strap is padded and grips your shoulder nicely; it avoids the annoying problem of the strap constantly slipping off your shoulder.

The Spire Mojo also comes with a removable waist strap, as well as reflective fabric on the front and reflective zipper pulls.

One knock against many computer bags is that they give you room for your laptop and power cords but not much else. The Spire Mojo has more space than many people will ever need.

It has four easily-accessible pockets for those items you want to be able to get to without having to open the main flap: a small zippered pocket on the main flap, an iPod pocket on one side that includes a hole for your headphone cable, a mesh pocket on the other side for a water bottle, and a large flat pocket in back for your papers. Lifting the main flap reveals nine more pockets and four pen sleeves on the front of the bag.

In the Spire Mojo's main compartment you'll find a well-padded sleeve that fits a 17in Macbook Pro perfectly. There's also a padded divider that provides an area to store additional papers, as well as a large Velcro strap to ensure that your machine won't move around in the bag.


Overall, we've found the Spire Mojo to be a great laptop bag for a 17in portable. The Mojo is perfect for the traveller or anyone schlepping around a 17in or bigger laptop with all the extras that we can't seem to do without these days.
