Some say we've taken the idea of a "sling bag" and perfected it. We like to think the Buzz simply elevates the sling bag to an art form. Practical, graceful, and subtle, the Buzz is as easy on your eyes as it is on your back. While it's not a large bag, the Buzz has room and a place for all your everyday carry gear. If everything you carry doesn't fit inside the Buzz, then maybe you carry too much.
The main compartment of the Buzz zips open with a #10 YKK® Aquaguard® water-repellent zipper. Inside, the Buzz's built-in padded sleeve protects your laptop. The sleeve is made of a three-layer, 1/4" (6 mm) foam laminate and is designed to fit the 15.4" MacBook Pro. The sleeve also fits many thin 15" PC laptops and thin 13" laptops; consult our Laptop Bag Fit Guide to find out if your laptop fits in the Buzz. As always, if you can't find your laptop in our fit list, email us. We'd be glad to help you figure out if your laptop will fit inside the Buzz.
Even with a 15.4" MBP already inside, the main compartment of the Buzz also has room for a couple of books or an e-reader, sketchbooks, a magazine, power supplies, and a light lunch or snacks. In front of the main compartment is a #8 YKK® Aquaguard® water-repellent zipper that opens the Buzz's front pocket, which contains an organizer with places for your pens, wallet, business cards, and an included 8" Key Strap for your keys.
A water bottle pocket on the exterior side holds most common water bottles up to 750ml (when there's a shortage of water) or a small umbrella (when there isn't). The cell phone pocket on the shoulder strap fits most cell phones (including the iPhone), or an iPod or MP3 player, or sunglasses.
The front of the Buzz features bright, reflective trim for nighttime visibility, though the solid black version has no reflective trim, for those of you who like to stay under the radar.
The Buzz rides exclusively on the right shoulder, and the wide, padded
strap made of 10 mm thick
