Moft is a smart company that makes smart products. I carried her laptop stand there for a while. It was eye-catching when I unfolded it during a meeting – back when we did that in person. The truth is, I eventually had to rip it off the floor. It took a while well, but the heat from the bottom of my MacBook eventually melted it into a sticky mess. It was fun as long as it lasted.
Ultimately, I think that was a design flaw. Even so, Moft is one of those companies that want to be successful and keep making interesting products that contradict the traditional models of most accessory manufacturers. I’m not sure if I would buy the convertible standing desk, for example, but I̵
The Moft Carry Sleeve, on the other hand, is a little faster than me. It’s another convertible stand from the company, but for starters, it’s one that doesn’t require glue. That’s an important point for him right there. Instead of relying on the sticky stuff, the convertible case works much like a number of origami tablet cases currently on the market. Basically, a combination of foldable corners and magnets are used to snap into different shapes.
Honestly, I think I’ll dig it. As a laptop bag, it is a bit too bulky for my taste. It’s a little big for my backpack. But the build quality is surprisingly good. It is made of a realistic vegan synthetic leather that is more sustainable, scratch-resistant and water-resistant than the original. All good news. There is a card slot and a small stretch neoprene rubber slot for expandable storage.
The case can be transformed into a stand with a few folds, which supports the laptop at either a 15 or 25 degree angle. At the front there is a small “flap limiter” that prevents it from sliding too far forward. The company claims it can support weight up to 22 pounds. I haven’t tried, but my 15-inch MacBook seems to be fine so far. I think we will definitely see when I travel again.
After all, the company name is an abbreviation for Mobile Office for Travelers. That’s not a lot of business right now, of course, but the Carry Sleeve Indiegogo has already made $ 300,000 so there is still interest.
