Best Bets Daily: Thursday


Posted May 1, 2008
We’ve recently covered laptop bags both coolly minimalist and sleekly stylish. But what if you already have a bag you like, and you just want some sort of compact protective sleeve made for your computer—something that you can then slip into a larger shoulder bag or your luggage? There are a lot of options on the market, but the new Cargo Laptop Sleeve not only hugs your laptop, it also keeps your accessories—for example, a mouse, power adapter, and USB thumb drive—neatly tucked in three flexible exterior pockets. It’s from Built, the New York–based company famous for its creative use of neoprene, which means this sleeve is made of that awesomely rugged, stretchy wet-suit material. Available in black, brown, and olive in small (accommodates up to 13.3-inch laptops), medium (15.4-inch laptops), and large (17-inch laptops).
