Booq Mamba shift L bag gets easy-trace ID

Finding a good bag can be harder than finding a good husband or wife, and since you’ll be carrying the bag on your back (unlikely to be the same for a spouse) it needs to be a good fit.  We’re yet to try the Booq Mamba Shift out for size, but we’re liking the style at least; there’s room inside for up to a 17-inch notebook and it has an elasticated iPhone pocket in the strap.

There are also numerous pockets for pens, peripherals, hard-drives, accessories and everything else we insist on carrying around with us.  It’s all made of ballistic nylon that has been waterproofed, and you even get a little accessory bag that slots inside.

Finally, Booq add a unique serial number so that, if you lose your bag and it’s found by an honest person, it’s more easily traceable.  Of course, none of this is particularly cheap, and the Booq Mamba shift comes in at $149.95.
