booq has released a new brief for business travelers, the $295 Saddle Pro, which has an expandable design and quick-access pockets to keep important items — such as passports and an iPad — within easy reach.
The exterior is made from ballistic nylon with water-repellent coating. Zippered mesh side pockets hold water bottles or an umbrella. The Saddle Pro will accommodate a laptop to up 16.4 inches. Increasing the bag via its expandable zipper adds another gallon in volume, enough for a change of clothes or another set of folders.
At only 3.8 pounds, travelers may hand-carry the bag by its two leather handles or carry it over the shoulder using the adjustable, nylon seatbelt shoulder strap with slip-resistant shoulder pad and custom, lightweight aluminum buckles.
