BUILT collection of bags

BUILT is an NYC-based company best known for its line of neoprene laptop sleeves, bags, and bottle totes. I’ve been a fan of their products for years, and was recently reacquainted with their unique goods via this year’s Meshwest Conference. Mesh, BUILT (and promotional agency Rightsleeve) worked together in branding the Slim Neoprene Messenger Bag for the conference.

While on the (continual) hunt for well-designed ways to transport gadgets and accessories, I came across another popular item in the collection: the Cargo Travel Organizer. Being out and about with laptops, cameras, and smart phone chargers, I’ve grown accustomed to packing these necessities into my various laptop bags. BUILT has taken this one step further with a slim-profiled zippered case.

I received the Organizer in black (with powder blue interior accents inside the pockets); the case also comes in City Grid/Orange, Navy Blue, and Scatter Dot. I like the curvy shape typical of many of their laptop products. As well, the carrying strap features the logo on a plastic shape that mimics the bag, another cool, well thought out design addition.

The bag can be bulked up with your cables, chargers, USB drives, etc. and still maintain a thin profile once zipped up.

It will stretch to accommodate a variety of stuff. It’s easy to maintain (via hand washing and drip drying) and is stain-resistant. The carrying strap is also easy to remove.

I own a messenger bag that the Cargo Travel Organizer can fit inside of, and the best use of the organizer would be in a suitcase, backpack, or other carrier/tote that will also accommodate your portable electronics. I was even able to tuck in a portable hard drive, as the photo below shows.

The organizer measures 11.4″ (29 cm) wide, 6″ (15.2 cm) high, and .9″ (2.3 cm) deep. I’m sure I’ll be getting a lot of use out of this, and plan to take it travelling in order to further road test it.

The Cargo Travel Organizer retails for $24.99 US and is available online in Canada via Macinbag for $29.99 CDN.

    Can a MacBook Pro 13 inch charger fit in this case?

    @ RedCherry – Yes, it will fit in the largest of the four pockets! Just tested again to make sure.
