If your free time is spent taking your sailboat out on the lake, or if you’re serious enough about your sailing to be part of a regatta, then you’ve no doubt heard of SailorBags. Their sailcloth bags are water-resistant, tough, and — as you’d expect — nautically colored; they also now have a Laptop bag and an iPad sleeve.
The Sailcloth Computer Bag measures 13″ high x 16″ wide x 3″deep, and it has a padded compartment that will fit up to 17″ laptop. It also has “interior section that zips closed for the most important files and two slip in side pockets big enough for files or magazines, there is just tons of room in this sleek, nautical bag. And all of this storage has our waterproof linings and is covered in durable sailcloth to protect your computer and other items from the elements. Plus some handy interior pockets to keep small items like cell phones, iPods, and keys organized and easy to find. Fold away ‘tote’ type handgrips and a comfortable shoulder strap.” The Sailcloth Computer bag is $75, and for $12 more you can personalize with your name or your sailboat’s name.
The SailorBags Sailcloth iPad Sleeve measures 8.5″ high x 10.5″ wide x 0.75″ deep, and it has a top zippered opening which “allows for easy access to your iPad, tablet or e-reader. Zippered side pocket to carry cash, ID or even notes and a pen. Great for the boat, beach, backyard pool – and the office too.” The Sailcloth iPad Sleeve is $32, and you can also personalize it for $12 more.
Made to be use used in “marine environments of all types – and that includes salt water”, SailorBags are made with actual sailcloth (not canvas), so they are very water-resistant; their lining fabric has a waterproof coating on the back. Sailor Bags use use YKK marine-grade, corrosion-resistant metal zipper pulls riding on self-healing nylon coil in every bag.
As SailorBags owner Anne Zimmer says, “I think it’s a neat angle, because everyone is used to seeing tech bags made of tech materials … but this puts a totally “relaxed” spin on the category … a mash-up of islands and iPads, if you will.”
