As you all know by now, WaterField has been in the business of perfecting bags and sleeves alike for many years now. And if you don't already know that, or WaterField for that matter, you're missing out! It has been a few months since we last reviewed a bag made by WaterField, and that was the oh so delicious Muzetto portable leather bag. The Muzetto was a bag that has set a very high standard in my book and it has made me expect a whole lot from WaterField when the Cargo landed on my doorstep straight from the San Francisco factory where it was born. The Cargo has met my highest expectations the moment I pulled it out from within its packaging, let me tell you that.
WaterField's Cargo is not the latest and greatest, and has been around the block for quite some time now. Such a bag like this is worth our attention and vigorous review though. The full review is waiting for you just past the jump!Read More

The Aviiq is a very portable and foldable laptop stand that is made from aluminum. I must say that this is the ultimate portable laptop stand I have ever used, it's so thin and lightweight it looks like it might not be as stable as a laptop stand should be, however that is not the case. The Aviiq is rock solid when it is set up and will hold a 15" laptop without any issues what so ever, up to a 17" laptop. The way that this stand works is it's basically a flat piece of aluminum sheet that has a flexible polycarbonate insides that let you easily fold it for portability. There are two rubber feet that lock thru the base once you fold it out to it's stand position.
The Everki Commute sleeve for 15" laptops features memory foam padding to protect your laptop and stow-away carry handles. I have never seen stow-away carry handles like the ones on the Commute before, while they are very useful they are also not so comfortable. They carry handles are very simple and without any padding to ease the weight of your carry for travels. The Commute can be used as a sleeve when you stow-away the carry handles but once you want to use those handles you might question the way Everki decided to go about this feature. Once you pull out the carry handles, the two zippers on both ends will not fully close but that's when the flap comes in-between the handles to form a seal and keep your laptop securely in place. The flap just uses Velcro to lock in place.
I would rather have my zippers fully close and have carry handles available on the outside. But this is just the design of the Commute, and it seems to work. The Commute has one large outside pocket for documents, cables and or your power brick. The insides of the Commute are lined with soft felt on both sides to help protect against scratches. The overall design of the Commute is very simple, effective and modern. The Commute sleeve is available in 10.2", 13.3", 15.5" and 17" sizes. The Commute is also available in a basic sleeve without handles for 15.5" laptops. Price $19.99 - 29.99.
