I like to think I’m an organised guy. Those around me say I am and my work colleagues reading this will most likely be thinking about the top drawer in my desk…
Indeed, I can be a little obsessive when it comes to organisation. Being an event planner calls for it. And with travelling so much it’s important to keep life organised on the go. But it’s not always easy. Men’s bags often just have two ‘sections’: one for your laptop or tablet and one for everything else – and that’s just pants! Your keys end up being thrown in with your phone (scratches!!!) and your pen gets lost within all your other stuff.
This was until I discovered Knomo, a London based company whose manifesto is to “design products for a life organised to live free” – music to my ears! Knomo have thought about everything in their designs, literally. From super lightweight fabric to tech protection, they’ve got everything covered.
The bag featured here is The James (£199) in charcoal. It’s got pockets for everything you need when travelling. One of my favourite features is the RFID pocket. By putting your phone, passport or bank card in here you’re instantly protecting yourself from identity fraud. The pockets lining stops anyone from copying sensitive information – amazing right?
The James is really versatile. You can use it as a backpack or for shorter journey’s you can tuck the straps away in the handy compartment and use it as a tote. Another awesome feature is the bags ability to attach to any wheeler suitcase with ease. Simply unzip the bottom and put the wheelers handle through. Say goodbye to your bag falling off your suitcase in the airport. It also looks really sophisticated doing that too!
You’d think with all this stuff going on the bag might look too techy like a laptop case – far from it. Knomo manage to design bags which get life organised in a stylish way. The James is predominately made of canvas but it has some really nice leather detailing to the straps and handles giving it a luxury feel. This bag is for someone who needs something to carry their everyday essentials whilst not compromising on style.
Knomo’s service doesn’t stop at delivering great products. Each bag is stitched with a unique MyKnomo ID which should be registered online. Should you ever lose your product, there are instructions for the finder to get in touch with Knomo. They’ll then collect your bag and deliver it to you free of charge – how awesome is that?!
If you’re looking to get life organised to live free then I highly recommend taking a look at Knomo’s full range of products for both men and women. They have something for everyone and won’t cost the earth.
