The booq Boa Nerve Stealth bag has been designed for those on the go who need a high quality bag to protect both high tech items such as laptops/tablets and low tech items such as paperwork is a must.

The bag is made to be water resistant (very useful for me living in Manchester!) and it has a couple of pockets on the outside giving you quick access without opening the main bag up, useful if you want to store your mobile in the bag but still have it easily accessible.

Around the bag is a grey reflective trim to help make you visible in low light.  You can see in the video below that while this works to some extent it’s certainly no replacement for lights/high vis clothing.

The amount of storage available on the booq Boa is mind boggling, there are pockets within pockets! There are a number of different size and shaped compartments, not only large ones but also some for pens and notepads, suffice to say this bag offers so many different configurations you’ll be using it daily.

The inner compartments offer a dedicated laptop section, it easily fit a 13″ Asus in with room to spare and will comfortably take a 15″ laptop. It would have been good to feel a little more padding on the bottom of this section to ensure your laptop is very well protected should you drop the booq Boa onto a hard surface.

The shoulder strap has a magnetic catch and this is useful when putting the bag on or taking it off as it allows you to quickly tighten or loosen the strap. With a heavier load this can be a bit tricky to latch on as the weight pulls the catch away, but it just takes a bit of practice to get use to doing it. The bag also includes a secondary stabilizing strap.

The bag also contacts a Terralinq serial number which means that should your bag be found and reported you’ll be reunited with it.

A brilliant everyday bag for the gadget lover on the go.
