UrbanTool tabBag 10-11” Tablet Bag in Black
The tabBag by UrbanTool stands out for so many reasons - great quality, solid protection, unique carrying strap design, and loads of pockets, slots and storage space for holding all the many gadgets and necessities that urbanites use on a daily basis. Yet in the eyes of some potential buyers, this tablet shoulder bag might stand out for the one thing that actually doesn’t stick out, the brand’s moniker (Surely those familiar with urban dictionary lingo know what I am talking about here.)
- Fits any 9” to 11” tablet
- Holds a lot of stuff
- Strap allows multiple ways to carry
- Can’t use the tablet while encased
- Material easily collects dust and lint
- High-end price
To say the tabBag can hold a lot of items would be an understatement. For starters, the interior compartment features a slot (12.2” x 8.27”) for storing any 10” or 11” tablet, and has an integrated pull-strap for instant device retrieval. Separate from this pocket, there is enough space inside to also fit a couple books, documents, an umbrella, and/or a pullover sweater or lightweight jacket. The exterior offers even more, there is a zipper pocket on the backside, and four neoprene slots on the front, one of which contains a yo-yo key chain. On the side of the bag are two pen holders, and there is an added loop on the shoulder strap for clipping a cell phone or music player so the device remains easy to reach for the user.
- Perfect for any tablet 9" - 11" in size
- Original transformer belt - easy to adopt from shoulder to backpack to waist wearing also adoptable to wear on hips
- Big compartment A4 sized, lots of slots, pockets and pen cases
- Convenient pull out feature for tabs
- Key yo-yo
- Adjustable transformer belt strap
- 100% organic canvas material
Like most bags, you won't be able to engage with the tablet while encased during transport. The storage slot is smart cover compatible and the interior compartment is certainly large enough to hold a portable, compact stand like the Matias iRizer. Mobile phone, music player, small digital camera, wallet, keys, lipstick, umbrella, a pack of gum - the tabBag can hold of these things and more.
The materials here can shield all valuables stored inside from being harmed by dirt, dust, pushy commuters, traffic smog, rain, snow, scratches and accidental drops. Considering all the valuables one can pack into the TabBag, a security lock would have a been nice (okay, that's probably asking for too much).
100% organic canvas and cotton, neoprene, nylon straps, metal and plastic components, some faux-leather, Velcro and zipper securing mechanisms - the tabBag certainly has a lot going on, and Urban Tool has done a masterful job combining all these materials for withstanding heavy use in hectic urban environments.
The main drawback of the TabBag is its lofty price. But those who cherish a quality bag will pay just about any amount for one that suits their image and needs.
If you don't mind toting a solution with the word "urban tool" written on it, or paying a premium price, then the TabBag is a best case scenario for those who seek a quality and versatile gadget bag for urban treks.
