Suitcase details

My friend Paula had asked me about how the laptop sleeve works in the Standard suitcase I bought late last year. As I told her, I haven’t used it that way yet but that’s mostly because both times I’ve used it, I’ve been on trips that were a week plus long and I used a laptop backpack in addition to the suitcase.

But I thought it might be helpful to share what it would look like using the sleeve with two different laptops. This is picture heavy but should give you a sense of how everything would fit together.

For reference, I’m 5’5”. I “filled” the suitcase with enough blankets that I had to squish to zip it shut (which is how I also pack—I rarely use the extension feature on any suitcase). The last pictures show you the two laptops with a yard stick for reference.

If you have other questions, let me know and I’ll answer in the comments.

First two are with my work laptop, which has an extended life battery that sticks out the back a bit.

Next two are with Kent's laptop, which is thinner but larger in length and depth.

A couple of photos of me carrying the bag that shows the depth of the bag when worn as a backpack.

From the rear (I forgot to close the bottom zip, which is why you see a lighter blue "line").

That is a great suitcase. And a good cat model.
