My Thoughts on the Swiss Army Victoria Sage Laptop Tote:
My very first laptop cost less than $200, had a 10″ screen and helped me compose music. I no longer had to write notes on a page and transfer them to a computer. It was great for sitting at the piano, using arrow keys and the spacebar to input notes, and playing back what I had written. I didn’t need to carry it places because I didn’t worry about taking it places. That is until I started using it for more than music. Then, I started carrying it places. My hands adjusted to the strange size of the keyboard, but my eyes never cared for only seeing 1/2 a paragraph of the emails I was writing.
I upgraded to 12″ screen and knew I was in heaven. This time I purchased a small sleeve for the computer. The computer was touch screen and followed me around the house. The only thing I missed was a numeric keypad. After I accidentally tripped and landed on the corner of the laptop and broke the touch screen feature, I was off to find something else I could use. No more touch screen, I needed less of a reflection. Now my computer seemed huge, but it finally had full-sized keys and a numeric keypad. This computer would need a lot more than a sleeve, though. My computer travels many places with me now and I need a tote.
My laptop tote journey:
Most of my work happens at home. That doesn’t mean I wanted a bag that looked like I work at home. Walmart, Target, Staples, and every store I checked always carried ugly, plain, black laptop bags that promised to fall apart in a matter of months. They never matched my style or my quality requirements. I mentioned to my husband my desire for a tote to carry my laptop in many times over, but nothing ever looked me in the eye and said, “buy me.” Mostly, I gave up. Then I discovered the Swiss Army Victoria Sage Tote! This tote is my dream laptop tote! Yes, this bag, that comes from Swiss Army, is more than function and more than beauty, it is both!
Swiss Army sells totes!
Most of my friends and family who have seen my beautiful Victoria Sage Tote never knew Swiss Army made luggage or totes. Neither did I. The Victoria Sage Tote is new this year, so of course, no one knew about this fantastic bag.
Look at the sleek lines and details of the tote. The outside touts beautiful brown accent straps and nearly invisible pockets on the front and back. There are three outer pockets, the two main front/back pockets, and a small hidden one. The small hidden pocket resides on the left side of the front pocket and is perfect for your sunglasses or phone. Of course, there are other pockets for those as well, so perhaps it’s the pocket where you slide some cash or your room key. Maybe it’s where you keep your car keys so they are easy to find. No matter what you put there, it took me over a week and several uses, to realize the pocket was even there. It’s that awesome!
The straps adjust via the buckles. In fact, there are buckles on the front and back, making the adjustments very customizable. The sides of the bag have expansion zippers. Sometimes you want a little more room — sometimes less, and that is exactly what you’ll get with this bag — a choice.
Inside the front pocket:
Inside the front pocket of this beautiful laptop tote, you’ll find sleeves for your cell, lipstick, and a pen or two. More than that, a zippered pocket lined in microsuede is waiting for the valuables you want to keep from getting scratched or broken. Don’t worry, there is still room in the front pocket for other items, perhaps files for work, or maybe a few toys for your kids. Maybe you want to slide your wallet in here with a few tissues and some lotion. It’s the perfect place no matter what you carry.
More outer workings:
The back pocket was fun to discover. The magnet closure easily opens and closes a compartment that holds a charger cord ready to pull out and plug directly into the wall. Place most of the cord in the pocket sleeve inside the compartment, then feed the cord through the bottom and out the zippered bottom to the wall. I would also like to see a reinforced pass-through hole into the laptop pocket so no cord is outwardly visible; however, this bag does not yet have such a feature.
Inside the main pocket:
Inside my new favorite laptop tote, storage abounds. Open the main zipper to find a back pocket for your laptop. This padded pocket secures your laptop with a snap closure. What I’ve always called the divider pocket, is actually the tablet or e-reader — or both — pocket. This utilitarian pocket incorporates function without leaving out beauty. Padded on both sides, it connects to the bottom of the tote. Now there is never a worry that something will slip under the free-hanging pocket like there is in some bags.
The next large interior pocket is purely storage related. A large area stands ready to accept those larger items you may need, diapers, blankets . . . a personal sweater or change of shoes. Maybe you want to change from a skirt to pants after work — the needed space is there. You’ll also find two large sleeves to help organize your belonging. If you thought one microsuede lined pocket was cool, how about two? It’s bigger and still just as soft. Do you need another great place to put a smaller device or another valuable? This it where you find another zippered pocket.
Men, THIS is a bag your wife will love! Hey, if she isn’t into Laurel Green, this laptop tote also comes in Mocha Brown and Black Cherry.
Woman, don’t fret the small stuff when Swiss Army has your back! Tell your husband you want the Victorinox Swiss Army Victoria Sage Tote, the company name alone is sure to catch his attention! This easy-to-clean tote comes with a 10-year limited warranty and a fabric that does not lend itself to destruction. Better yet, it’s still soft, nice to touch, and feminine at the same time!
