Now my main monitor is a 22” and even the ones I use at work are 20”, so I had to steal my parents 19” monitor to be able to have one to test this bag out with. You might be able to get away with squeezing a 20” into this bag (with it over-hanging the sides), but anything larger just will not fit.
The monitor is placed face down onto the padded surface of the bag, with the stand poking through the bottom as shown. This will mean that you’ll still be able to stand the monitor/bag upright using the monitors stand when it’s all packed up, which is a nice touch.
The top and bottom of the bag wrap around the monitor, leaving very little exposed ensuring it is protected rather snugly, and the securing/support straps are clicked and tightened in place with ease.
On the other side of the bag, you can see how you fit the keyboard and mouse for easy transport. Having it all supported like this really does free up your hands from carrying everything and will be sure to make taking your gear to a LAN session that much easier.
Here’s the shoulder strap that you can choose to use if you want to sling your monitor and keyboard at your side like a messenger bag.
And here’s that shoulder strap styled by a lovely model for us (Or it could just be me styling the bag, you’ll never know :P).
The shoulder strap is quite thick with plenty of padding and is pretty comfy to wear. The strap doesn’t dig or cut into you even when the bag is loaded with all your kit. Obviously the weight of everything on just one shoulder means that your shoulder is going to start aching after about 5 minutes use (at least mine did), so even with this convenient carry bag you’re not going to want to have to walk far with your kit.
Loading/Unloading the bag is a quick and easy experience (it feels like a very well designed piece of kit). It’s easiest to get the monitor out of the bag, as you can stand it on the desk, and then just unclip the bag (while you’re still wearing it if you like) and it will slide off and away to leave your monitor stood on the desk just as it was when you packed it up.
