Back in 2016, I reviewed the Brenthaven Collins Vertical Messenger Bag for the Surface Pro 4. Recently, when I stopped by my local Microsoft Store, I noticed a new model of the bag (#1974), and I was surprised to see a bunch of new upgrades and smaller changes.
In case you missed it, I think the Brenthaven Collins Vertical Messenger Bag is one of the nicest, best-looking "day bags" for the Surface Pro, Surface Book 2 (13-inch), or any laptop that is 14-inches or smaller.
It's light, slim, looks great, and has just enough pockets for a day out to the coffee shop or friend's house.
With a dedicated pocket for stylus and Surface Pen, and even a specific pocket for the Surface Arc Mouse, the Collins is not some generic PC bag, but a customized Surface accessory. That makes it somewhat unique, and at a price around $60 (though sometimes much lower), it won't break the bank.
Check out my new video review of the Collins bag and let me know what you think.
Buyer's note: It's not clear from online retailers if they are selling the new model for 2018 featured here or the older one that I reviewed in 2016. Make sure to check before buying, or, if you live near a Microsoft Store walk in and get one there.
