Clark & Mayfield Stafford Leather Rolling Laptop Bag

Clark & Mayfield Stafford Leather Rolling Laptop Bag
I’ve been seriously remiss in not mentioning this sooner but I want to give my thanks to Careerbags for again graciously sponsoring Popwuping. CareerBags.com is the leading online e-tailer for laptop bags, laptop cases, laptop sleeves and business totes for professional women.
They have a large catalogue of excellent product including one of my favourites Clark & Mayfield (no relation) and their Rolling Laptop Bag pictured above. A cousin to their Quimby Rolling Laptop Tote, the Stafford features a luxurious and durable top grain leather construction, a fan-fold section for files and papers, long extension handle, tons of pockets, and a sturdy, light, and high quality aluminum frame.
Lauri Delaczay started Clark & Mayfield with her husband Barry to simplify life by providing truly functional, yet fashionable bags to use everyday from home to work and school. Their belief is that functional products need not be unattractive, something I think we can all agree with.

Straight Jacket for iPad and MacBook Air

Sleeve for iPad and Macbook Air
The straight jacket from Autum looks promising; it’s hard to tell from these images but I think these would be a great compliment to the MacBook Air. It comes in a size for the iPad as well but I see this sleeve more befitting a laptop in terms of style.
Nice semi-rigid form made from leather with a suede padded interior. Limited production and handmade in the US.

MacBook Air Shoulder Sleeve

MacBook Air Shoulder Sleeve
Michael – New MacBook Air 11 & 13 specific cases?
This won’t work for the 11″ but this Shoulder Sleeve from Hardgraft would make a great choice for the 13″. I feature Hardgraft allot (just a few days ago in fact) but I do love their work. The case features a sturdy leather shoulder belt and includes a removable extras case for a power adapter and other incidentals.
Also of note is Vaja’s case and I’m waiting for a response from Malcom Fontier as to whether his The Entertainer Traveler or The Entertainer might work. Autum has a sleeve but I’ll write about that separately.


Arc’teryx Blade 24 Backpack

Arc'teryx Blade 24 Backpack
Though I wear (abuse) their outdoor apparel, I don’t have much experience with their bags but the Arc’teryx Blade 24 Backpack shows some promise as a great laptop backpack for a variety of situations. The Blade 24 holds a 15″ laptop in it’s main compartment while another compartment fits paper, magazines (if you still use them), or iPad. A couple other pockets keep your phone and other peripherals handy while an external pocket under the back shell keeps your travel documents safe and out of sight. A clean looking bag with generous straps.

Look at the detail where the handle meets bag. Love the curve there. It doesn’t suit me at the moment but I wish it did.

DeLoverly Laptop Backpack

DeLoverly Laptop Backpack
Taking inspiration from traditional Indonesian batik prints this feminine laptop bag from NokHoo mingles birds, butterflies, beading and hand embroidery to create a smart look. The DeLoverly has many features I look for in a laptop bag including great materials, padding for your laptop and multiple pockets to keep gadgets and business knick knacks organized. The detachable iPhone pouch is a great touch.
Nicole Roberts, the owner and designer, created her line out of frustration in finding a laptop bag that married both form and function – a similar story to many I have heard. Prior to starting NokHoo Nicole spent two years living in Thailand where she learned some Thai., absorbed the local culture and hunted down specific threads in tiny, crowded alleys in Bangkok.

A simple clean handcrafted leather case in which to carry your laptop. Bythread’s Journalcase is available in 2 sizes to fit your 13 or 15 inch, 3 colors, and features a foamed inner layer for protection. Space is tight in this bag so while perfect for a trip to the café, dedicated road warriors might look elsewhere.
Their Shouldercase has received allot of attention lately but I prefer the look of this one except the green — never could I imagine recommending green leather.

Clark & Mayfield Moreland Laptop Bag

Clark & Mayfield moreland laptop messenger bag
It’s not difficult to find reasonably priced bags these days but finding the same with great design that suits your personal style can still be a challenge. I’ve shared a couple bags from Clark & Mayfield and I’ve always come away impressed with their products.
Their Moreland Laptop Messenger Bag is possesses beautiful clean lines from the bottom of the bag through the middle to the strap. I like how the strap is integrated with the rest of the bag as it helps to create a more cohesive look. The bag features a well-padded laptop compartment, plenty of pockets and that shoulder strap with a 15″-21″ drop length. I’m partial to their steel gray but the bag is available in blue and green as well.
