Belkin NE-WTL leather tote review: Belkin NE-WTL leather tote

  • 1

The Good Simple, elegant design. Easy to remove laptop for airport security checks. Pockets to keep files and papers neat.

The Bad Too much strain on shoulder if your laptops is heavy. Could do with a mobile phone pocket closer to the top.

The Bottom Line Those who want to tote a laptop in style without sacrificing ergonomics will find much to like in this bag.

By and large, the laptop bags we encounter are drab, grey, mesh-accented monstrosities that scream "There is a $3000 item of computer hardware inside me; please steal me now!" to passers-by. That's why we were enthused to receive Belkin's leather laptop tote, which bypasses the standard rectangular or backpack design in favour of a shoulder bag.

The NE-WTL has been designed with the "busy woman executive" in mind. Male laptop owners are unlikely to covet it due to its handbag style, even if they have a predilection for manbags, or "murses" if you will.

The laptop pocket is insulated from shocks and knocks with a layer of foam padding, and has a thick elasticised strap that goes over the top of the section and fastens with Velcro -- a kind of seatbelt for your computer.

The bag is designed to fit laptops with a screen size of 15.4 inches or less -- and yep, that includes widescreen models like the MacBook Pro, which is the computer we carried around in our test toting.
