Pakuma Choroka K2 review
When a notebook comes with a bundled carry case it’s usually a cheap affair that doesn’t offer much protection, and looks so obviously like a notebook case that it’s a target for thieves. But there are plenty of top-quality bags available that blend durability with everyday styling.
But we’d still spend our money on the Pakuma Chokora K2 this month. The 15.4in internal laptop “cocoon” alone offers more protection than most entire bags, and the expandable design means the other main section can be pulled out to fit a vast amount of equipment. There are two small accessory pouches on the front and a further two inside, while the combination of Velcro and buckles will keep the bag secure on the most violent of commutes; there’s also an extra waist strap for cyclists. Style-wise, the green and brown of our sample is trendy without being too flashy, plus a K1 version is available for 17in notebooks. The strap is reasonably comfortable and the bag is padded enough to carry for long periods, so at £32 it just edges the TechAir.
