As a mom, I need functionality. When I shop, I look for items that not only look good and serve the purpose of what I am looking for, but also for the fact of making my life easier. I can add an additional awesome quality to shopping now. when shopping with net effects traders, you are also helping to make a positive change in the life of Cambodians.
I was recently sent a bag for review from net effect and I fell in love with the color as soon as I opened the packaging. It is a beautiful green color, with the front zipper standing out in an accent color of bright orange. I will admit that it takes a bit getting used to the feel of the bag, since it is made out of netting. I like the bag for a messenger bag for me, but I don't think I will be using it as a laptop bag like I originally planned. My laptop is a bit too large to zip up, but more importantly, with a child under 1 and a very rough and active 7 year old, I would want my laptop bag to have more padding for security. With me not wanting to make more trips that necessary, I try to carry it all in one go. That and a 7 year old that thinks he is The Incredible Hulk, he wants to help me carry as much as possible too. (Again, more padding needed, for us.)
Once you zip the top, there is an additional pocket under the flap before you snap it closed.
Once you have fastened it all closed, there is yet another smaller pocket (remember the orange zipper?) on the outside top flap. With all the compartments, I would like to say it will keep me more organized, we shall see how that works!!!!
