Booq Mamba Shift L Backpack Review

Laptop bags aren't exactly glamorous, but the Booq Mamba Shift L manages to squeeze a little style into its otherwise sober appearance. The slash of red down the centre gusset, the armor-like segmented side panels and the almost tear-drop shape add up to a handsome, discrete way to carry your laptop along with everything else.
