Booq Mamba Sling Overview

We are used to seeing the typical messenger style laptop bags, but the Mamba is a sling style bag, so it is actually taller than it is wide. Instead of your bag going in horizontally it will go in vertically. On the front and back of the bag are 2 deep pockets where you can put folders and papers. We received the navy blue version of the Mamba sling, but you can get it in black, brown and red. The Mamba is made of 420D polyester with a water-resistant coating.

There are 2 zipper pockets on either side of the Mamba. One pocket has 3 small pockets inside of it for things like business cards and other small items. The other has a single mesh pocket for larger items.

Before we get inside of the bag let's look at the shoulder strap. Unlike a lot of other bags where the shoulder strap can be removed the shoulder strap on the Mamba is actually part of the bag. It is made with a breathable mesh underside and 1-inch webbing. The strap is a Velcro strap with a custom buckle that allows for up to a 9-inch adjustment, so you can adjust it to where you want it to be.
