Win a Janine King Netbook/Camera Bag!

Last Updated on April 7, 2010 by Jody Halsted

I am a big fan of Janine King bags.  The first bag I bought from her was for my 17″ laptop.  It is stylish (read: not utilitarian black) and very well made.  Since then I’ve bought her bags for myself, as gifts and as donations for charity auctions (where they are always popular).

Last January, as I was preparing for the Blissdom conference I contacted Janine and commissioned her to create a sleeve for my new netbook.  It was the first netbook sleeve she made- but not the last!  Janine now has a full line of netbook cases– including her newest bag:

Janine King Netbook/Camera Tote
Netbook/ Camera Tote

Specs: * Fits mini laptops with 8.9″ and 10″ screens measuring up to 10.5″ x 7.5″ x 1.5″ or  a DSLR camera, lenses and accessories- and look good doing it!
* Bag measures approx 9” x 9” x 5”
* Protective inner core is thick foam padding that’s shock absorbent, anti-static and water resistant.
* 360 padded protection including pockets and flap.
* Bag bottom and corners are triple padded
* 2 large padded pockets and one pen pocket
* Detachable shoulder strap has pad for grip and comfort and adjusts up to 52”.
* Flap adjusts to accommodate your cargo with super secure VELCRO® closure.
* Industrial twill exterior and lining is non-scratching and water repellent.
* All stress points are triple stitched and reinforced for durability.

Isn’t it great?  I absolutely adore it.

Do you like?  Want to win one? Yep, I have the twin sister of that bag just waiting to be given away.  And while it may be a netbook/ camera tote it is the perfect size to be a travel tote, a roomy purse or a small diaper bag.  More info on how to win in just a minute.
