Cocoon CLS456 13-inch laptop case review: Cocoon CLS456 13-inch laptop case

There's also a long open pocket on the rear panel for papers or a magazine, and two elastic straps along the same rear panel to use as either hand straps or roller bag straps.

The case hangs from a simple adjustable nylon strap with a cushioned shoulder pad. The strap attaches via plastic clips to the left and right edges of the bag, but we would have liked to see an extra set of clip anchors on one side so the bag could be oriented vertically, in a saddlebag style, which often looks better with a smaller laptop case such as this.

The Cocoon CLS456 fits the definition of a niche product. If you're carrying both a laptop and a tablet around at the same time, you might be a little too dependent on technology (or you might work at CNET), but this inoffensive-looking bag manages to fit both devices in a surprisingly small footprint.
