BfB 15-Inch Laptop Shoulder Computer Bag Review

Designed by My Best Friend Is A Bag, this Australian made “Melinda” lightweight handmade shoulder laptop bag for women is an instant hit.


BfB is women owned – designed by a woman for women, this bag is classy, attractive and fully functional. Made from vegan faux textured leather, the BfB 15-Inch Laptop Shoulder Computer Bags is eco-friendly, lightweight yet durable and stylish.

The bag is sold with a 100% manufacturer’s warranty against faulty workmanship.

The bag comes in two colors, black with an orange lining and red with a blue lining.

Dimensions of the bag are 18”W x 12”H x 3”D and weighs approximately 2.9lbs – shipping weight is 3.8lbs.

The bag will fit a large (17”) computer in the padded interior pocket but not the padded pouch designed to hold a laptop. However, the specifications state that this pouch is designed to hold a 15” laptop/Ipad/tablet/notebook.

Overall, this bag was found to be extremely well designed.

Well placed pockets are convenient to find business or credit cards at a glance.

A key clip is a thoughtful addition for quick accessibility.

The bag can hold two computer devices, one in the designated exterior padded pocket and one inside the main compartment of the bag. The inside laptop sleeve measures 14”W x 9”H and the exterior zippered sleeve measures 15”W x 9”H.

As well as being able to carry a second computer, the interior section is large enough to hold additional items such as files, folders and planner. Space hungry computer accessories such as charger and mouse and mousepad and power cables fit comfortably while still leaving room for a cellphone charger and other sundries. If you are travelling, magazines or books will also fit comfortably alongside the hardware.

It is very easy to find your business/credit cards or passport with specially designed pockets. Additional pockets for your sunglasses and cellphone round off hands-on convenience.

Another compartment on the exterior holds slim items like writing utensils or again, business cards.

Customers like the strength and length of the cross-body shoulder strap, allowing for full hands-free activity – very convenient while travelling or controlling a toddler.

The bag is sturdy without being stiff and will hold its shape. The addition of studs on the underside of the bag to avoid dirt or scuffing will keep your bag clean and smart.

The bag is ideal as a carry-on case if you are flying, either for business or pleasure. It is stylish and elegant enough to use in any professional environment, but a touch of fun is included with the signature BfB tassel.

The overall impression of the BfB Melinda computer shoulder bag for women is one of superior quality and workmanship, superb design and functionality, as well as being fashionable and professional.

The faux vegan leather that the bag comprises is not only eco-friendly but also helps considerably in keeping the overall manufacturing costs down. If the bag was made of natural leather, it would push the price up immeasurably. As it is, the bag is affordable and the vegan leather is hard to tell apart from animal leather.

The two timeless colors that the bag comes in mean they will suit any outfit at a glance. The bright interior linings – orange for the black bag and blue for the red, are stylish without being flashy.

BfB 15-Inch Laptop Shoulder Computer Bags stands by the product, offering a 100% manufacturer’s warranty against faulty workmanship. Each bag is handmade, thus ensuring attention to detail and quality control.

The bag is advertised as Beauty and Brains Combined and it certainly appears to live up to this claim.
