Review: Cocoon SLIM backpack

Edit on April 16, 2014: the side of the laptop pocket is already torn. The construction is very weak.

Here's what you can put on the Grid-It of the Coccoon SLIM backpack:



I will link places where you can buy the stuff in the backpack but I am not getting affiliate or anything like that.

Top row:

Sanwa RW46BK. The label is "Road warrior", it's a powerstrip for two pronged cables -- of any kind, all three receptacles are universal.

The thing with a led in the corner is a Hde 4 port Mini USB hub.
Romoss 10400 mAh external battery

One half of Universal plug adapter

Next row:

Skiva PowerFlow QuadFire, 4 ports, 4 Amps USB charger.

The other half of the plug adapter, a USB-micro USB coard (then still the romoss), the silver thing is just my business cards.

Then we have a Lenovo 65W charger and if you look carefully in the corner, there's a Moenegallet / Sanwa TAP-B26BK plugged in. Next to it is the power cord.

We have a USB Eneloop charger plus two AAA batteries (I have a Bose QC15).

A Droid 4 on the right in a PureGear Kickstand case

A Patriot XT 8GB USB drive

A DisplayPort-HDMI adapter (I have a Lenovo T420).

Another USB - micro USB cord and a thin 6ft HDMI cable.

Doesn't look like there is really space to put documents. I guess you'd have to go with the Central Park Professional backpack for that. Cool concept if you're traveling light and more or less paperless.

That is just the Grid-it pocket. The backpack has two pockets, the one in the back has three pockets. One is mounted on the back wall and is clearly for the laptop. On the wall of this pocket there is a smaller tablet pocket, visible on the original pictures. Finaly, on the division wall between the grid-it and this laptop pocket, we have a document / magazine pocket:



Consider that this is primarily a small, slim gadget backpack. My plans are to drop it inside my carry-on backpack whole, replacing the laptop sleeve and the gadget cubes. I tried and it fits the eBags TLS MotherLode just fine and I plan to change to a 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 backpack which is even bigger.

Just throw it all in a cheapo backpack from anywhere really is my motto ! All too neat for my liking, it would drive me nuts, you cannot beat rifling through a melee of adapters and cables!
