Hello, and we know by now it sounds cliché, but we still hope you are staying warm. After an unseasonally warm winter in 2013, this year, the cold seems to be dragging on as storm after storm continues to dump snow on us coast to coast.  If you’re lucky enough to have a few inches of nice fluffy powder, we hope you are out there enjoying it. BUT, if you are like myself and despise the cold, I hope you are nice and warm as your routine has now transitioned to Hot Chocolate, Warm Coffee, and catching up on some Netflix. For the blog this week we would like to show you a brand new product from Oakley, The Works Computer Bag. World renown as a lifestyle and action sports brand, Oakley has now branched out into the Tech Bag Market and has hit the ground running with their new products for 2014. Durable and full featured for the needs of the modern tech professional of today, check out our full review for the inside scoop on the Works Collection Computer Bag from Oakley right here with Luggage Base.

The front accessory pocket is close to the bag not to add extra depth, yet still large enough to support the internal organizer and has enough space to keep plenty of accessories you may need while on the go. Flip the bag around to see the over the handle sleeve that allows the bag to secure against the handle of any wheeled luggage and is perfect for keeping the bag in place when navigating a busy terminal. The carry handle is padded and reinforced to ensure it is both comfortable and will not break causing your precious contents to drop and incur damage. Not done by mistake, the designers at Oakley have created a bag that was purposefully crafted to cradle your laptop and tablet for maximum protection while not being overly flashy or cumbersome. Not a fan of traditional carrying, utilize the adjustable shoulder strap to take the strain off your wrists and hands for more convenient carrying. Wrapped in easy to clean and highly durable Polyester, this bag is not only easy to maintain, it will last for many years with standard care only and no extra rubs, oils, or ointments.
