Default The Skooba Design Laptop Slim Case Video Review

<p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/QI-D1Efq4ds&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/QI-D1Efq4ds&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>This is my review of the <a href="http://www.skoobadesign.com/shop-by-category/laptop-bags/laptop-slim-case" target="_blank">Skooba Design Laptop Slim Case</a>, a lightweight laptop and gadget carrying case. Skooba, formerly known as RoadWired, has been making impressive bags for years, and this is one of their slimmest (3.5 inches) and most light-weight (18 ounces) bags yet. It's perfect for day-to-day business outings and even short trips or a vacation where you want to travel light. It has over 12 different pockets, pouches, and storage zones but it becomes a little unwieldy if you cram them all full. This bag works best if you pack it light. Check out my review for all the details, but if you're short on time, here's the summary: two thumbs up. Buy it.</p><p>You can purchase the bag from $59.95, but watch the video for a special coupon code to save 20% off any order over $50.</p><p><em>Jason Dunn owns and operates&nbsp;</em><em><a href="http://www.thoughtsmedia.com/" target="_blank">Thoughts Media Inc.</a></em><em>, a company dedicated to creating the best in online communities.

Nice review! I've got this bag as well, also in blue, and my wife has the red version, and I use it when traveling with my MacBook Air, and find it excellent. My only complaint is that sometimes one or more of the zippers get stuck, and need a bit of fiddling. I'm thinking of buying Skooba's new weekend warrior to get my travel kit down to one bag ... I'll try the code to see if I can save some money. cheers!

Contact Skooba - the first bag they sent me had the same problem...
