McKlein Laptop Bags

In Victorian times, people were so prude that they'd cover up the legs on their piano. We've come a long way since then, but still: you don't want your naked laptop dangling right out there for everyone to see. You gotta hide it in something, like one of these McKlein Laptop Bags.

This item is the problem with Woot since Amazon bought the business. You can get this same bag on Amazon.com for like $6 more than Woot (shipping included). For $6 you can return it if you don't like it or it doesn't fit your laptop or something. Woot's no return policy was the price you paid for getting a ridiculously good deal...a $6 savings is not a ridiculously good deal.

Thanks for coming by and sharing these thoughts! It's always nice when product reps from the company speak up!

I wish you had a photo of the insides as well. It really helps to see where the laptop goes, and how the padding looks etc..

If you have pics available on a server somewhere, you can add them for all of us, no email needed!

Adding an image to a post
BBCode incorporates a tag for including images in your posts. Two very important things to remember when using this tag are: many users do not appreciate lots of images being shown in posts and second, the image you display must already be available on the Internet (it cannot exist only on your computer, for example, unless you run a webserver!). There is currently no way of storing images locally with BBCode. To display an image, you must surround the URL pointing to the image with (img)(/img) tags.

If you need any help please feel free to send me a private message using the envelope icon with the url of your image and I can post it!

Is this the same item?

http://www.amazon.com/McKlein-USA-Scottsdale-Flap-over-Compartment/dp/B007MOYNXM

If it is then its cheaper and offers free shipping!

This is a discrepancy and this item is not being sold by Amazon, it is being sold by a third party vendor who is quoting the wrong prices. With that being said... the payment will not process. Thanks for understanding (Rep. at McKlein Company LLC)

I, for one, really like knowing that company representatives are watching what's going on with their items, and take and active interest in the community. Thank you for the communication.

Where can we see the images?

Also, the Dual Laptop Protection system implies that it supports storage for two laptops. Can you make sure to show that in one of the images. Thanks.

alrighty, i went to McKlein's site and looked up the Wrightwood, just to find a pic of some innards. (The Wrightwood is one of the models with the dual laptop protection system.) Hope this helps.

there's no pics of the inside at your corporate website. just the front and back.

They're getting some pretty conflicting reviews on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/McKleinUSA-Halsted-80335-Leather-Compartment/dp/B00019EWFY/ref=pd_sbs_a_7

Also, to the rep: When you say things like 'we can provide pictures', people assume you're going to post pictures, not follow up a response with 'go on our website to see them'. ESPECIALLY when the user asked about interior pictures and there aren't any on your website.

Also, signing your posts is kinda tacky.

Nitpicking is tacky. Signing their post is appreciated for those of us who want to know who they are and if they are reps.

McKlein Halsted Flapover Double Compartment Laptop Case

I have owned this style bag in black leather for three or four years. It has traveled with me providing protection for my laptop and other business gear.

McKlein is a very good value and in my opinion it does not look like a sub $200 case. Mine has aged well and compliments my Coach planner quite well.

I received one that looks exactly like the brown one (that is apparently sold out) a few Christmases ago. It's worked really well for me - and even fits my 16" laptop (just barely, with no cover). I think the dual part is that it has a compartment for the laptop, and a compartment for files/other stuff. It would be tough to do two laptops in this guy.

The best way to see what the "innards" look like is to click on that Amazon link above (that goes to a third party seller...but it also says it's sold by Amazon for $97). One of those photos shows the inside.

I definitely like mine and would consider $80 a good price.

Your bags look of very high quality. I am looking at model 15735c. Is the list as advertized or $210. Also are the expandable models also going on sale. I travel overseas and need a fair amount of space
Thanks

I've had a McKlein bag for 4+ years. I always get compliments on how nice it looks and it's held up very well (and I'm tough on my bags.) They're smartly designed for a mobile worker who needs to carry a laptop, papers, charger, etc. I only wish some of the bags came in more colors. My current McKlein is a pretty light blue.

How long are the handles on the wheeled bags? Are they tall enough that I can wheel them while standing upright, or will I need to bend over to reach it?

40" is the average height for the handles on our wheeled bags. We have never had a complaint about the handles being short. Thank you! (Rep at McKlein Company LLC)
