Case Logic LoDo Backpack: Back to the Future from tape cassettes to tablets

Not just any old knapsack! Case Logic’s new LoDo Daypacks are way beyond the campus lifestyle, taking you (and your gear) from the commute to the weekend away in contemporary style. The ultimate laptop backpack. Read on to see our competition to win one.

If backpacks make you nostalgic for school days, it’s probably a good thing that Case Logic are around to bring them Back to the Future! After all, the 1980s is the source of the inspiration behind the brand that has been carrying your technology and entertainment with you since 1984.

 


Remember tape cassettes? Those plastic winders that were the genre of choice for recording your favourite tunes from the radio in the 1980s – so long as you could handle the ‘fade to DJ chatter’ at the end of every song. It was a battle to press ‘Record’ and ‘Stop’ at just the right moment in the post cut and paste days.

It was the clatter of tape cassettes in the back seat of his car that first inspired Case Logic founder, Jamie Temple, whilst driving on a Colorado ski trip. Realising the music on the back seat wasn’t enjoying the ride as much as he was, he crafted two novel audio cassette storage cases to solve the problem, and Case Logic was born.

The CL 15 was a soft-sided case that held 15 audiocassettes, and a second product was soon added. Color options were introduced, and Case Logic went from startup to full-fledged enterprise. Music may have changed, technology has evolved, and the word “mobile” has taken on a whole new meaning, but the core of Case Logic’s philosophy remains the same: it should be easy to bring your electronics and entertainment everywhere you go. Their range now covers briefcases to laptop backpacks, tablet cases to laptop sleeves, and messenger bags to camera bags.

The new LoDo Daypack for example, achieves a balance of style and function by blending contemporary design with relevant features. It has padded compartments for both laptop and tablet, a genuine leather bottom, front magnetic closures, padded back panel and shoulder straps allowing for a stylish and comfortable carry. Coming in two sizes (14” and 15.6”) and three colours (Graphite, Dress Blue and Petrol Green) it’s a great addition to your modern uniform.

COMPETITION: We have two of the fabulous 15.6″ LoDo Daypacks by Case Logic to give away (one in petrol green and one in dress blue, rrp £75). Click here to enter. Competition closes 15th February 2016.
