Much like the name suggests, the Skooba Techlife "Weekend Warrior" duffel bag ($124.95) is designed to carry a weekend’s worth of clothes and toiletries, up to a 17-inch laptop or notebook, a good amount of portable electronics and accessories, and other items you wish to bring on your trip. The Weekend Warrior eliminates the need to carry both a briefcase/notebook carrying case and an extra carry-on bag while traveling. The bag comes in red, black or blue, and a gray and blue checkered pattern lines the entire inside.
The Skooba Weekend Warrior features a Nylon twill exterior and checked nylon interior, both of which are labeled as water-repellant. The duffel bag has overall exterior dimensions of 24 x 12 x 12 inches. The bag tips the scales at 49 oz. (3.06 lbs) completely empty and has room for loads of items. I was able to fit the following gear in the bag:
The main compartment is divided into three sections. The first can hold larger electronic devices such as my dissembled Guitar Hero guitar and comes with two mesh pockets sewn into the sides.
The third section of the duffle bag holds a weekends’ worth of clothes and other items in the four mesh pockets around the section. There is yet another larger pocket scaling the back of this section.
All in all, the bag has just over two dozen pockets and compartments; more than enough for most of us to hold just about anything for the weekend.
The Skooba Techlife Weekend Warrior is currently selling for $124.95 and combines a massive duffel bag with a notebook slipcase and padded storage compartment. Although this bag is a little too large to carry into the office, it's extremely convenient for business travelers who need to pack several days worth of clothes and bring their laptop and accessories along as well.
The zipper hardware looks and feels a little cheap for a bag with this high of a price tag, but it's hard to dislike a duffel bag with this much storage space and this much padding around your laptop.
