Incase Sling Pack Review
The fit and finish of the case is very nice. It is constructed of a heavy black nylon material. The actual laptop cradle inside the top loading bag fits my MacBook Pro and has two sheets of dense, but not particularly thick, padding to cushion my MacBook. The laptop fits into it perfectly and does not slide around at all. One feature I really like is the way it suspends the laptop cradle inside the bag so there is a gap between the bottom of the bag and the cradle. It is clear they thought a lot about the design of this bag specifically in relation to the Apple laptops.
In addition to holding the laptop, the Sling Pack also has numerous zippered compartments and pockets to hold everything you need to run your machine and just a bit more. I’m currently carrying my laptop, my iPad 2, a few backup drives, cables, Apple’s Magic Trackpad, and the mag-safe. There is still room to spare. It even has a hidden pocket in the back which is nice for quick access to documents like plane tickets. There is also a nice little padded pocket on the strap that is perfect for holding a digital camera or iPod. It even has a little rubber grommit hole for your earphones
The strap is wide and padded and includes a quick release clip that frankly scares me a bit. I don’t want this bag popping off accidentally. It also has a nice rubber and nylon handle to carry it from top the top when not over your back.
You can get this bag from Incase for $79 and it in 5 color combinations. It is extremely light. I use it most of the time now. The Sling Pack is my primary case now. I am happy to recommend this bag to anyone looking for a sling bag for their Apple laptop, and iPad.
