Standing Out at CES 2013 with a Kaboo Bag

10 8

I’m heading to CES (my first time!) and I have to tell you, it’s a little bit intimidating thinking about the 150,000 expected attendees at the event and the fact that the majority will be total techies-in-the-know. So what I’m relying on is to get in with the in-crowd, party it up and learn about cool products that I’ll be able to review.  With my incredible personality (um, okay, maybe not that one so much) and my sense of fashion, which will set me apart from most black-tech-bag carrying geeks. I won’t have your usual black/gray bag hanging from my shoulder. Nope. I’m going to make a statement with my new Kaboo bag – “The Charlotte”. It’ll have everyone saying, “Oooh… I want to go hang out with her!” with its sleek chevron pattern on the outside. At least, that’s the idea.

“The Charlotte” comes in Navy and it’s one of 13 different tablet bags offered by Kaboo. What makes this tablet bag so awesome, besides the fact that it has a very distinctive look, is the patent-pending tech pouch. The Kaboo tech pouch, with a magnetic closure, goes beyond simply having a place to put your tablet in with its shock-absorbing cradle that is tailored to protect your gadget. The tech pouch makes it so that the tablet never touches the bottom of your handbag. Because it’s elevated, it doesn’t matter how many times you drop your bag because your tablet will never hit the floor.

This bag also features seven other pockets that I will use to organize my phone, pens, notebook and business cards. However, I don’t want it to weigh too much so I can keep the initial contents to a minimum and allow space to stash all the precious products that I will, hopefully, be showered with during the three days that I am at CES.

As far as geekyness goes, this tech bag is ranking high because it does accommodate my lifestyle AND my sense of fashion. I appreciate being able to drop my bag without worrying about my iPad breaking. I also like the attention to detail that Kaboo has put into its bag – especially the metal feet under the bag that keep it from touching the floor and the Kaboo-branded metal rings on the straps (which came very carefully wrapped in plastic). It also comes with its own dust bag, which you will definitely want to use because this is a bag you’ll want to keep for a while.
