Kolobags Designer Laptop Sleeves {Review & Giveaway}

Kolobags{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Crazylicious85!}

Much to my husband's dismay, my laptop comes with me just about everywhere.

What? He thinks that I can go a day without checking in to see what's new? That's just crazy talk.

So when we pack up to leave, I'm not only double-checking to make sure that I have everything I need for myself and my kids, I am checking that my computer and all its cords and accessories have been put in the bag also.

Which, considering the importance that I place on my computer, was a pretty cheap bag. More often than not, I would find that I just tossed my laptop into a suitcase or possibly a flimsy fabric sleeve that I had and hoped that it wouldn't get too crunched by my extra sweatshirts and shoes.

But now I'm not worried anymore. Now that I have been introduced to the stylish selection of laptop bags and laptop sleeves at Kolobags, I know that the safety (and fashion) of my computer will never have to be compromised again.

laptop sleevesKnown for being the one-stop shop for everyone looking for technology fashion without compromising on style, Kolobags features the best selection of computer bags, specialty bags and technology accessories. This isn't the site to visit for a basic, bulky, black laptop bag, but instead one to go to for something that is going to be innovative as well as eye-catching.

After one look at the Designer Sleeves laptop sleeves that Kolobags has to offer, I couldn't wait to see one in person. And, when the 15.6" Argyle Laptop Sleeve arrived, the vivid colors, durability and high quality were evident immediately.

designer laptop sleeveNot only bright and colorful, the thick, resilient neoprene of this sleeve is just right for cushioning my laptop and providing maximum protection whenever it goes.

laptop sleeveAs I had only previously tried a traditional fabric laptop sleeve, the natural wet suit material of this one was a welcome change. Instead of simply providing a layer in between my computer and its surroundings, this functional alternative easily provides moisture, shock and scratch protection as it snugly surrounds every inch.

Available in a variety of sizes (10”, 13”, 14.1”, 15.6” and 17”), I placed my laptop into the sleeve and the phrase, "fits like a glove" came right to mind.

Kolobags laptop sleeveThere is a slight stretch to the neoprene that hugs the base and corners just right and I had no problem closing the strong double zipper and being ready to carry this sleeve alone or slide it right in and out of a backpack, briefcase or luggage with ease. With exterior dimensions barely larger than the laptop itself (13" x 15.5" x 1"), there is no room wasted no matter where this goes!

stylish laptop caseI also really appreciate that Kolobags included the additional zippered pocked on one side of the Argyle Laptop Sleeve, as it has proven to be the perfect place to store my power cord, mouse, and mouse pad so that I'll be prepared for using my computer wherever I am.

stylish laptop bagHaving had the chance to use this laptop sleeve both locally and during my recent vacation, I couldn't be happier with how well it has performed. The vibrant design (printed with Kolobags' patent pending process that makes it completely permanent and washable) is bright and fun, giving me a smile every time I look at it.

Plus, knowing that my laptop is safe and secure in my bag or suitcase is a big relief to not have to worry about ever again, as I have plans to use thiscolorful laptop sleeve case for quite some time. Retailing for $38.95 (for the 15.6" size) and available in a HUGE variety of designs to fit your own personal style, a laptop sleeve from Kolobags is a great gift for you or the computer-savvy mom in your life this Mother's Day.
