However, for the times that I’m not hopping from one country to another, I find solace in my home base (which is currently: Belgium). Now, working at home is a bliss in itself, but I always find a lot more comfort when working outside — think cafes, parks, etc.
When that need arises, I used to pack my smaller gadgets in my pockets as I carry my laptop in my arms… Clearly, that wasn’t efficient at all, and I’ve thought of bringing along my CamPro bag since it can organize my stuff better than a traditional top-loading backpack. The only problem is that, though my CamPro helps a ton, I wanted something lighter and compact it will become my daily gear as I step out of the house with my tech stuff.
My woes ended, fortunately, when I discovered This is Ground’s Mod Laptop 2 case and it has been a part of my daily gear ever since! Besides, it’s not only perfect for my needs but it’s also a stylish organizer for my daily grind online.
This Is Ground
» Why I love the Mod Laptop 2 case
It has seamless pockets, “Mod inserts”, and sections that can hold all of my essentials!
There are 3 gadgets that I always have with me for my daily online work: my iPhone, my MacBook Pro, and my tablet. All of these items can be packed inside This is Ground’s compact Mod Laptop 2 case and has even enough free space to accommodate other smaller items.
Below is a list of the typical items that I carry in this organizer:
- iPhone charger
- MacBook Pro 13″*
- MacBook charger
- Credit Cards and IDs
- Pens & pencils
- Hard drive
* They have cases that can accommodate 11/12″, 13″ and 15″ laptops. I got the 13″, and though they are originally form fitted to handle MacBook laptops, they also fit other laptops as long as it’s within the dimensions. See the complete list here.
But okay… guess what? I can actually carry even MORE items with my Mod 2 laptop case for as long as I use one of their signature Mod inserts that are interchangeable and can be attached on the spine with the help of magnets. Rest assured, these magnets are not only strong but safe for use with your electronic devices (it has zero negative effects on your gear).
Currently, I own the Traveler Insert and below are the complete list of inserts that they offer which can match your lifestyle!
It’s a handmade eye-candy constructed of premium quality materials!
I’ve long since developed an intense love affair with true leather materials — it’s just simply so gorgeous; plus it ages well over time. That’s why when I first laid eyes on the Mod Laptop 2 that was made with premium leather materials and designed in minimalist style, I just knew that I had to get my hands on it!
Did you know? This is Ground’s vegetable tanned leather comes from the Tuscany region in Italy and handmade to order by heritage leather workers in Los Angeles, CA. It is enriched with anti-scratching formula and spray finished to give it a soft feeling and a shelf life that can span a lifetime.
Currently, they offer the following color choices. (I got the toffee one!)
» The cons?
- The price: with true leather and quality comes true luxury, so yes the Mod Laptop 2 is pricey (at $399 or Php 18,500~). However, I absolutely find it as a great investment since it’s the kind of laptop case/organizer that has perfected function and style! Additionally, the Mod Laptop 2 can actually be for whatever use: may it be for your daily work needs or for your travels as a mini carry-on.
- The front flap/pocket: as you will see in my photos above, the front part has a “slit” or flap where you can tuck in your laptop chargers. It’s a genius idea to still keep the case compact; however, it can stretch the leather quite a bit with continued use. So far, I don’t find it as a huge problem but I feel the need to point it out in case that might be a factor that you wouldn’t like about it.
If you’re looking for a high-quality organizer that’s compact, lightweight, and stylish, the Mod Laptop 2 case is the best choice that you can ever have!
I’ve been using this baby for several months already and it has made my daily work life a whole lot easier and “prettier”. *laughs* But seriously, every time that I use my Mod Laptop 2, people would compliment and ask about where I bought it.
