Tech Toys are more fun with a Fashionable Bag from Golla

When I was scheduling my appointments to meet with exhibitors at CES, I came across an invitation from a company called Golla that made me take a second look.  Golla is a company from Finland that makes very fashionable bags to carry all our wonderful tech toys.  The invitation that they sent me was so bright and colorful and fun that I just had to make an appointment to go and see these bags in person.

I am a believer that fashion goes with everything - including technology.  And the Golla exhibit at CES really impressed me.  As you can see from my photos, the bags are bright, colorful, youthful and fun.  They make bags that can be used by both men and woman and the bags come in all shapes and sizes.

I fell in love with the Golla G Bag as seen in the photo above.  Since I am only 5'2", big bags tend to overwhelm me.  The Golla G Bag is the perfect size for my technology at 11.6" x 9".  Golla sent me a G Bag for review and I love it.  As a blogger, I usually carry a camera, a video camera, two cell phones, a mini tripod, and a notebook.  I actually nicknamed this bag the "Blogger Bag" because it is perfect for all my needs and could also easily fit a netbook or a tablet.  The bag has two large outside zipper pockets that can hold keys and a wallet. The inside has a divider that also has two pockets that can hold memory cards or cash.  The shoulder strap is adjustable which is very important for someone of my height so this bag could be carried by the shortest or tallest person.  The adjustable strap also allows the bag to be carried cross-body.

Golla bags are very well made and they are designed to protect your tech items. As I was talking with Carolin, the Golla Marketing Manager, she shared with me that the right materials and craftsmanship are very important to the company.  They want these bags to last and they have rejected fabrics that look good but don't hold up well.

The Golla 2011 Collection is very impressive.  This 2011 collection is not yet available in stores but will be sold in stores like Target starting in April. So if you are a techie that believes in being fashionable, the Golla 2011 Collection is definitely for you.

All the press that made an appointment to view the Golla 2011 collection at CES were given gifts of the new 2011 Golla mobile phone wallet. And one FREEISMYLIFE reader will get one of these wallets for FREE thanks to Golla. $20 Value. HOLLA TO THE FREE!
