I respect Logitech, I love its devices, considered and I consider production of the company of one of the best on совокупы fig. This is the real veteran of the market who has started creation of computer mice still in 1981. With Logitech periphery more than 10 years itself work. Tested in business mass of its keyboards, mice, joysticks, few years I use acoustics of Z5500 which was taken in exchange to twice burned best Creative GigaWorks S750. Memoirs only the positive. It is natural, when I вызнал in 2007 that the company decided to let out pair of unusual things for own range, a satchel and a bag for laptops, very much became interested in them. Just in plans there was a transition from the stationary personal computer on the laptop that the private office, so to speak, always was with itself, and the reliable receptacle was required for this office. At first there was an attempt of use of a cheap satchel of HP, but the device appeared not so comfortable and not especially protected the laptop. Finally I ventured purchase of Logitech Kinetik and in three years never regretted about it. The Swiss company did not bring again and made a successful, obmyslenny device. Yes, not simply satchel, and the most real device. About experience of its use, aspects and features, reefs read in article below.

Cherepashka nindzya!

«Rum, you are similar to the cherepashku-ninjia! What it after all for piece such at you on a back?» — this phrase I heard from many own friends and the acquaintances who for the first time have beheld me with new, fashionable or, quicker, by an unusual satchel. Indeed, specifically such reminiscence is created at the unprepared person: the smooth and rigid armor, the approximated form, wide comfortable straps. The device very much not on a habit looks, draws views and often causes smiles. But, smiles smiles, and main thing, as they say, result.

As it became clear in the course of active operation, Logitech Kinetik is capable to protect the laptop better than the majority of satchels available in the market, thus not only only from casual blows, but also from a rain. Moreover, the device appeared more capacious, than it seems on the 1st look. But about everything one after another.

Exterior and design

The satchel is executed in black and orange color — a combination pleasant and actually looks truly cool. It is allocated, entices attention and that the most important, will approach actually under though what type of clothes, excepting perfect the business. In the latter case it is necessary to direct attention to a bag from the similar Logitech series.

Fascinating combination of materials and their invoice. Namely, the external rigid framework is executed from polyurethane. It truly the rigid — it is possible to be filled up with a satchel on a back and it will not be pressed through. The armor opaque and smooth, perfectly protects satchel contents from blows, but its surface is poorly steady against scratches. About it we will have a talk it is sensitive below.

The average part of a satchel is executed from nylon, thus on the bottom and in the lower part боковин it is a little more rough. Even if the satchel will be put by a case on a damp place, water it inside will not pass. Other part is covered with more tender and smooth nylon, but it is not scratched and too the waterproof. By a similar fabric are fitted outside of a strap, and снутри and from a back of a satchel the myagenky porous material of orange color is used. It should be noted that it actually is not soiled and at all кашлатится. In three years of operation remained as new.

Straps wide and comfortable, are equipped with high-quality accessories, there is a thong with a fastener that they did not creep away in the parties if the satchel is very loaded. This thong at desire can be moved on a vertical or to unhook as superfluous. There is even a wide elastic band that the belt did not dangle in the clasped look.

Holding straps of a bracket too are made perfectly and obmysleno, as well as a nylon belt. To change length it is possible without removing a satchel and without applying special efforts, it is enough to pull for the free ends of thongs or is sensitive to raise brackets. But, without looking at such ease, itself on for itself the length of straps under weight of a device does not change.

In the highest part of a satchel there is very pleasant to the touch, ukhvatisty handle. The rigid external framework to a satchel fastens by means of the certain material to the touch reminding prorezinenny skin. For years of operation it did not crack, did not tear, was not rubbed and, as a whole, looks as new.

To locks and doggies of claims is not present any the voobshchy. Though, frankly speaking, in their reliability at first there were doubts, on the last measure, from a rigid framework. Nevertheless there pressure upon the lock solid, well and to clasp, happened, it was necessary a device under way when it practically developed by means of a doggie. When using cheap, poor-quality devices such appeal usually leads to huge dilemmas, directly before accessories substitution. By the way, on each of huge offices on two doggies.

There is pair of decorative parts, like an iron insert of Logitech on a framework, or rubber AXIO Design. On one of straps there is a pocket under a player with the valve for a wire. It rather big, but thin, respectively there will get far not each player. Somehow tried it to use on mission, but threw this business later. It is simpler to carry there any suitable tinsel or small means, on the drive, for example.

From Logitech Kinetik exterior плавненько we run across to interiors. Simply available outside of pockets exactly two. One is from above and it big — there comfortably to put any necessary things on long trips: napkins, folding knife, handkerchief etc. By the way, снутри it fastens on a flypaper — a trifle, and it is pleasant, the pocket does not dangle. the 2nd is covered on one of device sides — this tremendous decision for documents.

One of 2 main departments contains снутри a small pocket on "wall", under it — big office with a rigid partition, and in an internal part — myagenky department for the laptop. I will note that the framework round it too moderately rigid and holds a form.

The laptop fastens by means of a wide elastic band with leather hlyastiky on the end and a flypaper from the back. During operation the flypaper did not wear out at all, unless a little покашлатилась an elastic band.

Snutri a pocket is laid by a myagenky material, and on боковинах and in the lower part there is the impressive lining breaking fall if a satchel sharply to lower on the earth and not giving to the laptop to dangle in office.

From features I will note only that if to carry in a satchel 15-ku or 17-ku MacBook Pro, the top pocket especially you will not load, the laptop rests against it. But it is possible to put flat things.

In the 2nd big department of any pockets and otdelchik it is more. I will begin with more fascinating part — face-to-face where pair of big offices hangs. They are comfortable for power unit placement from the laptop, the small camera and others not especially flat things.

That fact is fascinating that pockets as required can be cleaned, or to move to other part of a satchel — they fasten on a flypaper that became clear absolutely a case. It left, when I especially very much loaded them and, taking out things, heard the corresponding crash. The internal part of a rigid framework is trimmed by a myagenky fabric, but it actually is not soiled and at all кашлатится — is magnificent.

From the back the design is similar such in a compartment for the laptop. There is a pocket on the lock, under it the big department for papers with a rigid face-to-face wall takes place, and on the last in turn there are a carbine for keys, some pockets for cut-aways and handles, plus a big sack on an elastic band.

If a face-to-face compartment absolutely to unbutton and release, the rigid cover will not fall down, it is fixed, apparently in a picture below. Corner of disclosure about 45?. That it and in department for the laptop though there is no rigid fastening and at desire it is possible to stretch it more widely.

Operating experience

The 1st, I wish to tell, why the satchel is called as Kinetik. Here a small pun with a word "kinetic". Kinetic energy — is energy of movement. The satchel, on the contrary, does not move, and keeps on a place in a vertical condition at the expense of weight of the laptop which is taking place just in the center of a design, and device balancing. The bottom at it small, but it surely costs on it! The main thing that Kinetik especially was not loaded in the field of a rigid framework, after all there it is possible to jostle many things. Well, or the laptop should be heavier in the place taken away for it.

The 2nd, following from the first — the satchel possesses magnificent, obmyslenny straps. The weight is distributed moderately, and how many everyone various I in it would not load, it was simple to carry always. Anything anywhere does not rub, shoulders does not delay, everything is comfortable.

The third, the satchel truly well holds water. Few times got under a rain, not heavy rain, but decently poured — the laptop did not wet through never, снутри was always dry. Though, I can simply not was with it under a real rain. In any case for some time Kinetik in a bad weather will protect equipment.

The 4th, in a device is located strongly much only. If any very big piece in face-to-face department is put, the central partition can cave in a little and the lock will be clasped. Dot pressure upon the laptop at all this is not present, because the department and a partition own a certain rigidity. In department for the laptop MacBook Pro 15 ?, nearby still Air, with iPad, any trifle from devices, like PSP in myagenky панче, the external store, a sack with cables simply are located. Generally, capacious and obmyslenny thing.

The 5th, the satchel perfectly protects equipment from casual blows and falling of the device from meter – one and a half on a firm surface. The laptop everywhere is laid by myagenky inserts and fixed by a strong elastic band, the rigid framework let’s be crumpled all design and a little springs, that демпфировать blow. Still I will note very strong accessories and lightnings. Few times massivno so touched with doggies corners — fell off nothing, did not tear.

The sixth, the cool handle for carrying from above — the weight is also distributed pertinently. The satchel does not clatter on feet when carrying and does not pull aside.

The negative moments too are, where without them. The standard, to chagrin, does not exist. So, the external polymeric covering is completely unstable to scratches that it is possible to create on a photo below:

Specially I it, naturally, did not scratch. There with a case struck, here touched, here and all these traces gather. There are councils to sketch these tsarapinka a marker, but I that precisely colors as the framework, did not manage to pick up, and the ordinary dark am very much allocated. Though, it is necessary to consider that fact that these tsarapinka were collected in three years of very active operation of a device.

Also in the summer in a heat at me under a satchel the back and places where straps adjoin decently sweats, but I connect it with own personal physiology. Because in especially hot time there is a damp strip even from a bag strap through a shoulder, it is enough to pass pair km three.

Still it would be desirable to have pair of the additional pockets which are pasting from the interior of an armor in a set. From time to time they are very necessary. It is surprising that Logitech made a secret pocket for documents in a satchel back only on the one hand. With the 2nd it is completely enough place for 1 more pocket. Too excessive it would not be. Well and побурчу a little on very thin pocket in a strap, than it is a little more spacious to make.

Cost of a satchel makes about $100 that for a device of that sort a little. There are much more moderate decisions which stand comparable means, and even is more expensive. To chagrin, Logitech laid off this product though in sale to find it it is still possible. Very much I hope that further there is a brand new Kinetik model because mine already saw better days, it is time to update.

Pluses:

• rather small-sized dimensions;
• rigid framework;
• comfortable wide straps;
• tremendous design and color registration;
• excellent spaciousness;
• very high-quality accessories;
• beautiful balancing of a satchel.

Minuses:

• the covering of a rigid armor is simply scratched;
• in a heat under a satchel the back (though, I carry it to personal features of the owner) can sweat;
• pockets and departments could be and more.

The friends, esteemed readers, and what satchels or bags for laptops you use? Perhaps, something can recommend, any models caused in you ecstasy, there was an entertaining experience of use of that sort of the goods or opposite. Write about it in comments, will esteem very curiously and, maybe, to find to itself the worthy candidate.
