Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

In the CHOROKA ranges you will find a sense of unique style combined with a common sense approach to durability.

We know that however cool a bag may look, it will soon lose its appeal if it’s a pain to use. So getting the design right is really important. For example, we’ve made sure that our bags are comfortable to carry – the straps are in the right place and fully adjustable. In our CHOROKA range, we’ve even included an extra strap that stops the bag from slipping aroundto the front. Really handy if you’re on a bike.

All of our bags are capacious, but neat, with a separate compartment for stuff other than your notebook. Like your music player be it an MP3 or and iPod. And the insides are lined with light grey fabric, so you can see what you’re looking for, rather than delving into an abyss. You’ll find lots more thoughtful features on each bag.We want you to own a PAKUMA bag for a long time, so to make sure that it keeps on working and looking good, we select and use the best materials we can find.

We choose high-performance industry leading fabrics. Our tough woven webbing straps are designed to withstand serious stress. We only use YKK zips, the best in the world. They work smoothly every time. And patented DURAFLEX buckles that won’t break or stick. Not all bag makers are so particular so check carefully when choosing a bag. Then to top things off, we assemble our bags to the highest possible manufacturing standards and rigorous stitch-by-stitch quality control.

Unique COCOON SYSTEM protects notebooks better.

We believe that a computer bag should first and foremost do the job you’ve bought it for, protect your notebook. So we took a look at all the bags out there and wondered how we could offer better protection than the rest. We came up with our unique notebook COCOON.

A specially designed fixed pocket that holds your computer firmly in place and cushions it with panels of high density memory foam (researched and invented by NASA). With your notebook safely in the COCOON™, there’s still plenty of room for magazines, papers, music player’s and all your other bits and pieces.

Our manufacturing policy

We specify all of the materials and construction details to ensure that they meet the high standards we set out to achieve. Our designing and marketing takes place within the shores of Great Britain while our manufacturing takes place in the Far-East in a factory that employs a hardworking team of craftspeople who earn good wages and an honest living, just like us here. We visit our factory on a regular basis to ensure the highest possible manufacturing standards and working conditions alike. This is very important to us. We are hard working bag fanatics, both designing and making them. But at the same time we want to support our respective local communities especially in this increasingly competitive global market.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Laptop companion 6 Aug 2010
    Colour Name:Black/Jasper Red|Verified Purchase
    I recently purchased a Charoka K1 Messenger for my new Apple 17" Laptop. I carry it around on a daily basis and wanted a bag that would adequately protect my Laptop and provide enough space for the power supply and other associated peripherals. I can honestly say this product is A1. It has great padding for the Laptop and sufficient pockets for all those bits and pieces we all like to carry "just in case!!" The materials used for fabrication are of excellent quality and heavy duty Zips which I hope will last the test of time. All in all this is an ideal purchase if you want a bag to protect your significant investment and require durability and comfort.
    Delivery was timely and the product was adequately packaged.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Does not last 3 Feb 2012
    By Dr.
    Colour Name:Black/Jasper Red
    I got this bag as a Christmas present and have been using it for commuting to work for the past month.
    Although my 15.4 inch laptop fits perfectly and safely along with other bits and bobs, I never felt confident about the fastening of the bag. The velcro closure is a bit flimsy and the plastic catches not quite enough. This morning, one of the plastic catcher broke off. Couldn't believe it, just over a month of use and this - not happy. The velcro on it's own is not strong enough to do without the plastic catch.
    No carrying handle also makes the bag unwieldy when lifting out of a car seat/boot.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great... 29 Oct 2011
    By Jonny
    Colour Name:Black/Jasper Red
    From the looks of this bag and other reviews (and the price), I was expecting a good bag. In some respects it is- the outer fabric seems tough enough and the zips are satisfyingly meaty. However, there is what seems to be a major design flaw which isn't apparent until you start to fill it up... the two main buckles for the top flap are attached to the flimsy inner layer of fabric on the flap, bizarely not the strong outer layer. This results in this inner layer being pulled from under the top flap or, as in my case, the buckle completely tearing off its attachment after just a couple of weeks. Granted, I do tend to fill my bags to the brim but I don't think this would have happened if the buckle was attached on the outside.

    Other issues: 1) It did not come with the mentioned extra cycling stability strap. 2) My 17" Dell XPS JUST fits in but it is a real squeeze and means you can't close the flap properly (reducing the time before the buckle tears off) 3) The red piping detail is fraying already 4) The velcro which helps hold the top flap down only lines up properly if you have next to nothing in the bag.

    The lack of a smaller carrying handle on the top is something worth bearing in mind too, but this may not bother you.

    In general, I feel there are probably better options out there...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect bag for a 17" laptop + other bits 14 Sep 2011
    Colour Name:Black/Jasper Red
    For weeks I was searching for a suitable Messenger bag to fit my sons 17" Alienware laptop as he is off to university soon. I'm pleased to say that Pakuma Choroka K1 Messenger Bag is a perfect find. It has plenty of padding to protect the laptop as well as having space to fit books etc. It looks strong and well made and the 19 year old says, it looks "cool" too! Amazon Marketplace offered best price and fast delivery.
