Tech Squibs: Booq Snakes in with Mamba Daypack

The Booq Mamba Daypack hides good protection behind a fashionable facade.

SQUIB: a : a short humorous or satiric writing or speech; b : a short news item. (Merriam-Webster)

This Tech Squib points out that a well made bag can make you forget how many silly sounding names are hung on it.

The words Booq Mamba Daypack sound like a military call sign or the roll call for a bunch of Skylander characters, but the little piece of luggage they're assigned to is a quality made overnight bag. It looks delicately fashionable on the outside. But, that neat look hides a tough inner protection level that looks after whatever you're taking on your brief trip — including your laptop or tablet.

Booq also makes some really well-designed laptop bags that carry your gear without looking like a soft briefcase or man purse. The Booq Mamba Daypack retails for about $99.
