I recently bought myself a new laptop and gave my old laptop to my Husband, along with the laptop bag. I searched for a new laptop bag in Comet and PC World, but didn't see any which caught my eye, so headed home and did a search on Amazon. I was swamped with choice and was drawn to the 'Ektor' Laptop/Notebook soft case sleeve.
My new laptop is 13.3 inches, so I purchased a 14 inch (260x360mm) laptop/notebook bag which cost £14.05. The bag is black with brightly coloured fish on the front and has a unique design that makes it stand out. The bag is available in a variety of designs and is available in the following sizes: 10,12,13, 14 and 15 inch bags. Prices (excluding delivery) range from £11.90-£14.90. The bag has a strong carry handle and a removable adjustable shoulder strap.
The laptop/notebook bag is padded and is made from neoprene (synthetic rubber) material; it is very light and can be washed. The neoprene material will protect your laptop/notebook from marks, scratches and light shocks. As it is not a hard case bag, your laptop/notebook won't be protected if you drop the bag or if it gets stood on.
The main pocket has a high quality double zip. The pocket only opens up at the top of the bag (from the middle outwards), leaving enough room to slide your laptop/notebook in, with a few centimetres to spare either side - enough room so that you don't end up scraping the edges of your laptop against the zips when placing in the sleeve.
There is a separate pocket at the front of the bag which has a vertical zip. There is ample room to hold the charger and other accessories such as stationary and CD's, however this makes the bag quite bulky when this pocket is full. Due to the bag only being slightly padded, around 0.5 cm in thickness, I always make sure that the charger plug faces the outside of the bag and not towards to laptop, so that there is more protection in case I accidentally drop the bag.
The laptop/notebook sleeve is made from neoprene material which feels spongy, therefore it doesn't have a solid base, unlike traditional laptop bags, so the bag can't stand up on it's own. I keep my laptop flat in the wardrobe, as it can only be kept upright if it is leaning up against something.
Overall, I give the 'Ektor' Laptop/Notebook soft case sleeve 4 stars out of 5. I love the design as it is very colourful and makes the bag stand out, the neoprene material protects my laptop from marks and scratches and it has a second pocket at the front to hold your charger and other accessories. The only disadvantage is that as the case is soft I am unable to leave it laying around the house as the children would end up standing on it or throwing it.
