BUILT – Bags, Totes & Cases.


One of the things I love most about my job is discovering great companies such as BUILT and reviewing their products.
BUILT is a New York-based company that designs fashionable and functional bags, totes, and cases for life on the go.
Drawing inspiration from the city that never sleeps, they apply color and pattern to laptop sleeves, iPad cases, camera bags, lunch totes, and other accessories that protect the stuff you love wherever you go.
 I travel a lot and am always in need of great bags to carry my gear. Luckily BUILT offers everything from laptop bags to lunch bags
Some of my favorite BUILT products include: 
BUILT City Collection: Built expanded their signature neoprene material and used a new generation of fabrics to create beautiful highly-streamlined designs. They are street-smart on the inside and stylish on the outside. 
Essential Work Tote -This sophisticated coated canvas laptop bag holds a computer up to 16 inches and has a handy padded pocket for your iPad, e-reader, or papers. A three-pocket organizer with a key leash also ensures your phone, pens, and personal items are always easy to find on the run. This laptop carrier has a shoulder strap and comfortable handles so you have two easy options for carrying it. You can even scrunch the fabric down around the handles and carry it over your shoulder if you’d prefer to keep your hands free. This work bag is also a great all-purpose tote that’s ideal for day trips or running errands.
