Mobile Edge didn’t stop at just the computer user. They went after the computer user who is concerned about the environment as well. Utilizing a polymeric material called Sorona, this material is partially made from corn.

I have used lots of laptop bags to travel with over the years, even some really expensive ones that had wheels and a handle. But the lightweight, durable quality of this bag, combined with the ease of use going through security means that I won’t be traveling with any other bag.
