Penelope's Avion Bag Rated Top Women's Laptop Bag.

WAKE FOREST, N.C. -- The Avion Convertible Laptop Bag by Penelope, which switches from a shoulder bag to a backpack in seconds, received the top rating in a recent review of laptop bags on About.com.

"Penelope has delivered a laptop bag that fuses fashion and function," said Catherine Roseberry, the mobile office technology expert for About.com.

"The Avion Convertible Laptop Bag tops the Mobile Office Technology web site's list for best women's laptop bags," she said. "Its secure external pockets, comfort, multiple fabric options and special design features set this bag apart from other laptop bags for women."

The Avion Convertible Laptop Bag is the brainchild of Penelope Manasco, founder of Penelope, a Wake Forest, N.C.-based company dedicated to designing innovative laptop bags for women. Manasco, a physician and genetics scientist who has logged more than 2 million airline miles in career, created the Avion Bag when she could not find a laptop bag that provided both comfort and style.

"I searched unsuccessfully for more than two years for the right bag so I decided to design the bag I needed," said Manasco. "Feedback from Ms. Roseberry's column and many other women helped us in the design of the bag.

"For instance, the separate, top-loading, padded and waterproof laptop section is very convenient when moving through security at the airport. In addition, the convertibility from backpack to shoulder bag is wonderful. You can navigate an airport in comfort, but still look good when you go to a business meeting.

"We've also added lots of special features, including the double zipper pulls for right- and left-handed women and the extra internal key clip and business card pocket."

"The Avion Bag gets five stars," said Roseberry. "You can fit plenty of gear and paperwork into this laptop bag. I love the choice of materials offered with the Avion: leather, faux leather and canvas. You can have more than one bag."

Penelope also offers a laptop messenger bag, The Go Girl, for college women and young professionals.
