    Crumpler Chester Squander for Laptops Up To 15"

    Chester Squander For Laptops Up To 15 I had purchased a smaller bag from this company a few years ago for my on-the-go DSLR camera and it is still going strong doing an excellent job of protecting my camera. I decided to buy the Crumpler Chester Squander a few months ago and this is an equally well constructed product. I love the looks of these bags, and initially this was one of the biggest factors in me buying one (we all like to look good on-the-go) but now my recommendation of this MacBook or MacBook Pro laptop bag centers around it's top-notch quality.

    Designed to outlast its lifetime guarantee, this MacBook or MacBook Pro carrying bag features a super-strong water resistant 600D outer, 150D Rip-stop lining, flamed polypropylene webbing, triple strength S-Bend webbing attachment, injection moulded velcro and bonded nylon thread with bar tak stitching on all stress points.

    What does all this mean? It means your MacBook or MacBook Pro will be warm, dry and well protected at all times while on-the-go. Keep in mind that this MacBook carrying bag will protect your MacBook or MacBook Pro from a small amount of rain and snow, if it starts to snow or rain hard enough your MacBook or MacBook Pro may still become wet.
