Slightly less than a year ago I wrote very positive review of a Spigen SGP Dresden Klaus9i Messenger Bag bag, and after about a month of active use it began to appear at me on a shoulder only periodically, a two-three of times a month. But with transition to new iPad which I started to drag with myself always and everywhere, works to a fashionable accessory increased. As it became clear in use, the producer not all обмыслил in bag designs, and sent attention to this nuance one of readers iPhones.ru with anybody to Gooru, having sent such here the photo:
Economy «on matches»
It commented it as follows:
To the house did not reach, came off quickly, inside only the purse, iPad and keys constantly lay.
The person had a bag in operation three months. But who knows, how it maintained it? After all I have a bag about a year though in particular furiously I used it in the 1st month after purchase, article in a past became result of that — troubles did not appear. Later it "was published" occasionally (I in general the big fan of any bags, handbags, portfolios, baby slings and other similar pieces so I change them often), but before receiving mentioned above a picture, two more months she actually did not leave my shoulder. In other words, the general term in a year made about 4 months if to consider its not periodical introduction earlier.
I did not direct special attention on holding brackets of a loop, as at the 1st look everything was OK but when received the message from the reader, became agitated a little. It would not be desirable, that the bag in a flash fell down from a shoulder. For safety of things inside I in principle do not worry, Dresden Klaus9i owing to the design and a rigid framework with soft furnish inside will simply protect a tablet and a trifle when falling from meter height. But who knows, in what situation it will occur — suddenly I will be заскакивать in the overflowed minibus (or opposite) and a bag, having flied from a shoulder, remains outside (or inside, what is very more awful)?
Thus, the razglyadyvaniye of loops began, and even at the 2nd look I did not find anything criminal — well pair of threads sticks out, let to itself sticks out:
And here when I started to twist actively a bracket, without putting, naturally, excessive efforts, there was a similar discrepancy, as well as at Gooru, but in a germ and too on the left side.
The material certainly started to be torn and it not skin, and кожзам, at all this, judging by its fast wear, not the most qualitative.
Companions in Spigen SGP, I, naturally, can understand everything in respect of quite high price of Dresden Klaus9i supposedly a design bag, a cool design, but why protect «on matches»? Неуж it was impossible to use in a place exposed to constant loading a genuine leather or stronger кожзам? Even trivial nylon would be more practical. At all this in other materials of a bag after all there is no economy: qualitative neoprene, technological спандекс, very abrupt nylon. Yes it after all it is simple, excuse for expression, охренительна on convenience of operation, on tactile feelings, on design, and here such awful "ambush".
Yes, on production of Spigen SGP there is a guarantee, there is a card with unique serial number in a set and, assume, what the accessory even can be changed, having communicated through an official site, but what sense in it if after a while the history repeats? I after all did not pull a bag, carried it very accurately and inside too there was only iPad, a purse, iPhone, times still the reader or a 7-inch tablet. Well and transfer will cost certainly expensively. Generally, I decided to deal with discrepancy in a residence, so to speak.
It is sure, in each city there is a small workshop or public service center where aged people, but with bolshushchy experience, repair bags, umbrellas, purses, sew lightnings, etc. On the last measure where I live, such institution is, at all this not one, and the small town of small, only 300 thousand population. Being afraid of refusal, after all a design of fastening of a loop unusual, I went to a familiar place, but the master, the pleasant lady aged, without batting an eyelid said that without troubles everything will make.
Two long days when iPad was necessary to leave houses later and to take instead of it Galaxy Tab 7.7 holding in smaller bag available in an economy through a shoulder, Dresden Klaus9i came back home. According to the master, it put loops from «a strong shoe-leather» which will tear very heavy even at big desire to make it.
Naturally, a skin structure not so prestigious as at unusual кожзама, but not enough who directs on loops of attention, they small, imperceptible and appearance do not spoil
For a week of furious operation in the course of which I even quite often leane
d a hand about a bag hanging on a shoulder that did not dare to do earlier, with loops happened nothing, keep strong and, I think, they will suffice for a long time.
Well, with repair dealt, it to make really and, by the way, very cheaply. To me it managed in ridiculous bags taking into account the price of 20 UAH (about $2,5) from which 5 I added from above on the initiative, the master called the price in 15 UAH. It is time to talk and about operating experience.

Why I sharply started to drag with myself the Apple tablet everywhere and always? New iPad at the expense of the Retina-display to me became real to use with comfort in portrait orientation in text editors, in the browser, in the RSS reader and in many other programs. In iPad/iPad 2 in such mode the small text was very indistinct, and it was necessary to use landscape orientation in what to print, holding a tablet on weight, inconveniently. And here in portrait orientation it becomes simply and concretely thumbs of hands, plus speed of typing at me in that case not so differs from that when using the hardware keyboard of the laptop.
As a result of many texts I began to gather on a tablet and in absolutely unexpected places, whether it be a minibus, a cafe, turn in "tax" etc. Productivity very much increased, and Dresden Klaus9i proved to be simply perfectly if to exclude replacement of loops.
And it is concrete, the bag appeared very much with comfort directly in "field". Thanks to the form and design, also qualitative accessories (the lightning is smart) and materials, she allows to take a tablet or to hide it actually in instants. It is not necessary to aim, to be picked, to bulge a pocket and to get to it a tablet, too it is not necessary. Fast movement of a doggie on the lock, iPad is put actually to the touch, all — I run on an exit from the bus, steam of seconds делов.
Inside pockets from a neoprene very elastic, simply last, but at all this keep a form and practically are not stretched over time. And still they soft and rather thick to protect the iPad screen from keys or other trifle in a bag.
The bag very narrow and at all is not stirred when walking, when sitting in a minibus and even if the backpack behind hangs. The wide belt rather reliably holds it on a shoulder. If it to throw for a back and to bend or sit down, for example, in a flash it was required to stick laces, Dresden Klaus9i does not roll down back, keeping on a place at the expense of the flat form and the thought-over fastening of a belt (not in respect of a material of loops, it is natural).
Thus, for me personally at present Dresden Klaus9i is one of the most comfortable bags for iPad. Tried classical soft bags through a shoulder from Crumpler and pair of other companies — not that. In them it is possible most of all натолкать but when it will be necessary to get or hide a tablet, time for it leaves more. Plus is protected by iPad in such bags worse and they more powerful.
Discrepancy only one — is the miscalculation with a material of fixing loops for belt brackets. I hope, in Spigen SGP it will consider, though in a workshop change loops without troubles, but somehow not in a high to pay many means for a bag and after it to complete.
Perhaps, dear readers, you can recommend something interesting of such accessories for iPad. Any bags there is a great unlimited quantity, including perfect unimaginable transformers, like Mixbag to which I hope somehow to reach. But really comfortable among them — units, though this matter of taste and very private matter.
Update: one more confirmation not the most successful material of loops came from reader Stepan Yabluchko (made bold to translate from Ukrainian):
I carry Dresden Klaus9i about a year. Really loops started to disappear in two months, and through three — disappeared completely. Went to a workshop — 40 UAH (about 160 rubles), and at me new leather loops. With them I go half a year, all super.
