I’ve been looking for a bag that will hold all my tech and something that I will be using daily.
I needed something that could handle my books, my laptop and gym equipment. After
searching through many options I came across this roll-top laptop bag and I knew this was
the one I had to get my hands on. This specific bag retails for £120 (link will be posted at the
end). The Brand ‘’Stighlorgan’’ has many different types of bags but the one I chose to go
with is the ‘’Ronan roll top backpack’’. This backpack come in a variety of different colours,
so, there is a style and look to suite all.
One of the main reasons I chose this bag was because of the special laptop compartment at
the back. You guys all know how precious my tech is, so I got to keep it protected. The bag
has a padded backing and is attached separately inside the bag so you don’t need to worry
about the laptop getting scratched or damaged in any way. It is a zipped compartment
which can fit laptops up to 15inches in size.
We all know that the weather in London isn’t always great but that won’t be a worry when
you get this backpack as the main fabric is weather resistant. It is lined with their custom
tarpaulin for even further waterproofing. Therefore, no matter the weather, the bag will not
be damaged in any way. This was a big plus for me as I don’t want any of my tech to be
ruined, especially due to electrical failure from the rain.
A problem that I have with most bags is that the strap always tends to rip off due to the
heavy load that I carry. Another amazing characteristic of this bag is the straps. They are not
sewn directly onto the bag. Instead there is an angle mobile shoulder strap design. The
shoulder straps are mounted on two D-rings which when automatically adjusted will
increase comfort and strength over long periods of time.
Of course, the bag has it bad points as well. Once of which is that the bag does not have zips
to close it. It has leather straps which fasten with custom Stighlorgan ball and post studs,
adapted from hard wearing military equipment. When I first got the bag, I found it annoying
when closing as it just took so long to close. But after you have had the bag for a while, you
get used to it and it becomes easier to handle. The backpack is very large and you can stuff
literally anything in there but I guess sometimes it’s too big to handle.
Overall, I would rate this bag an 8/10. Aside from the lack of zips and annoying straps this
bag is a pleasure to have.
