As an independent contractor first impressions are everything. Which means as soon as I show up, I need to look professional as I juggle blueprints, sketches, and models over lattes. And for that reason, this Tote and laptop case can be a game changer. I 3D model and draw high fidelity mock-ups for Architecture and public planning offices and being able to easily set my bag down and slide my iPad from the matching leather laptop case to show a client the latest draft of their project can be the difference between getting the job or not.
In the past I have used leather portfolios that left marks across the screen or have been a bit too snug so I wouldn't be able to fit the pencil with it, but the laptop case is not only wide enough for a 12.5" iPad, but business cards and an apple pencil comfortably. And with the portable charger that comes with the tote, I can make sure that I never loose battery as I go from meeting to meeting and have to recharge in the middle of a demonstration or a work session. Before I bought this bag I only used backpacks before, but this leather bag and the accompanying case is so Stylishly functionable that I now take it everywhere I go. Definitely recommended!
