Do you carry a laptop on your daily commute? All it takes is one crowded train ride to realize you need ample protection. But, laptop security doesn’t need to come at the price of style. You need a bag that can handle your commute, offer total peace of mind, and store all your stuff, all while looking good doing it.
Stains are the bane of many a designer bag addict’s life – they are impossible to completely avoid unless the only reason you bought that pricey tote is to keep it in its dust bag at home.
