Purchasing a laptop can be very costly as it is usually priced thousands upon thousands. Naturally, we'd like to protect it as much as we can, especially when on-the-go. It's a big no-no to use a simple bag without padding nor is it a good idea to just hold it while crossing the street. That's where Crumpler Skivvy can be best used.
I have known Crumpler for its outstanding quality - good manufacturing, thick material and sturdy construction. Although many get turned off for its expensive price, I say it's actually worth it. The designs of Crumpler bags are also top notch, as it is not limited to plain, boring colors.
Crumpler Skivvy carries the design principles and quality manufacturing that we have long known Crumpler for. It's padded protection is suitable for a 15-inch laptop on the main compartment, and tons more things on the other pockets. From my experience, I was able to put in a laptop, an ipad, a camera, an iPod, a couple of notebooks, several pieces of bond papers, ballpens, and more.
It actually has seven storage zones, namely the following:
- Easy access front zippered pocket with 5-way organiser
- Large velcro-fastened internal stuff pocket
- Two small internal stuff pockets
- General cargo compartment
- Padded 15-inch laptop sleeve with velcro fastener
- Shoulder pad with accessory loop
The Crumpler Skivvy also sports dual quick release compression straps to keep everything securely in place. In addition, it has a 50mm wide, adjustable length strap with shoulder pad to distribute weight evenly depending on the adjustments set.
To add flexibility, the Skivvy has a Dink Me Padded Grab Handle that cleverly acts as the bag’s briefcase style grip. As such, it will slide over the handle of a wheelie luggage, therefore giving hassle-free carrying of the bag as I pull a luggage.
Its thick material serves its purpose of being water resistant, especially with its oversize flap in front that acts as rain guards for the things that matter inside the bag.
This particular entry pictures the Crumpler Skivvy (Medium). However, if you've got either a 13-inch or 17-inch laptops, there's a suitable Crumpler Skivvy corresponding to that - Skivvy (Small) for the former and Skivvy (Large), respectively.
Crumpler Skivvy comes in three colors: Black/Gunmetal, Beech/Black/Orange (pictured above), and Navy Blue. For further information, you can visit any of the Crumpler stores listed below.
