Have a question?
+1 Alison. And same kind of band to secure the phone; it will also be upside down?
@satchel&page maybe some kind of band to secure over the laptop pocket (for extra assurance)? (:
@Richard - We do not process the payments nor have any control over payment processing. That is all done by Kickstarter. You would need to contact them, although it's highly unlikely you'd be billed twice unless you made 2 separate pledged with 2 separate accounts.
@Eric - we've tested it and the laptop is very tight inside it's pocket and doesn't really move while it's being carried. If we designed it the other way, the inserts would be almost impossible to use and the laptop would be very cumbersome to insert/take out of the case.
Hi there, just noticed that when the laptop slides into the pocket and when the portfolio is carried around, gravity and the natural cadence of walking will pull the laptop towards the zippers. If that is the case, then wouldn't there be no protection in an accidental drop?? Or is there something I'm missing here.
I had some problems with the payment and now I am worried I paid twice, do u have and e-mail adress we can discuss this further? Or how do we proceed?
@Eric - the accessories will ship with your pledge
@Dr. T - you can add the luggage strap through the survey going out in a few weeks
@Alan - Thank you!
@Graeme - Thanks, we can't wait to get them to you.
So excited to finally get something that's been made with design in mind. Been through a few cases......great job....can't wait.
Can't wait to get my hands on my Port! I can already imagine this is something which will last me a lifetime of use.
Tried to order/ad the trap on for 15$ in order to put it on top of a suitcase, but the website did not build up accordingly . What to do?
Regards Dr. T
Excited to get my Port 14" in Jan. Are the accessories / add-ons available sooner?
@Shane - You chose the right one. Your laptop will fit nicely in the Port 14".
I have selected the Port 14". My laptop is 13.3 x 9.1 x 0.8
Is this the right port as it said maximum width was 13.3 but unsure if the other dimensions mean it won't fit?
Thanks, @Creator! I love having gadgets with me, and I'm not going to need enough pens to fill all those loops.
@Nicole - Thanks for backing, glad you are excited!
Those tools are:
1. Tactical Pen - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XR9BYB4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage…
2. Small pocket knife - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M150OY0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage…
The pen/ruler, can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014TJ8NLA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage…
I am very excited about this project, and I'm glad that I found this before the KS closes. I use a Surface for notes and work in all my meetings, and I've been carrying it all around in a completely inadequate PVC portfolio.
I've been looking closely at screenshots from your promotional material, and I have a couple of questions. Not about your product, because you have done an outstanding job of providing information. I'm curious about two of the items shown held in the Port using pen sized loops. What are the small tools (one silver and one brass looking) in the lower two horizontal slots on the left hand side of the Port? Also, where did you get that great pen/pencil that has a ruler printed on the side?
Congrats on the success of the KS; I'm really looking forward to my Port!
@algadi - Yes! All add-ons will be available after the campaign at the same price.
Will you be offering the add-ons in the survey.. Cause it’s kind of missed up when a backer do it on Kickstarter.. “confusing”!
@Ty - thanks for pointing that out, it's been updated!
Are the Height and Width numbers correct with the port?
-Height being 11.5 and Width being 8.5
Seems that the measurements for the Height and Width may be incorrectly reversed?
Bam: stretch goal reached! Excited to see the new insert and keep up the great work!
@Amnan - The Surface Pro charger will fit well in the modular outside pocket.
hi is there a dedicated space to keep my surface pro charger?
@Liam - For your pledge, it's December.
When is the expected arrival date of this product?
@Blythe - the 11" does not have a pocket on the left side. The 13", 14", and 15" do.
@creator I backed the 11 Port but would like to know if it has a pocket/slot on the left side for papers etc. I believe I saw one on the 13 Port but it is hard to tell in the pictures.
I'm glad to hear that! Thanks a lot for the quick reply :-)
@Espen - Your Macbook Pro will fit well in the Port 15!
Hello! I just noticed that my macbook pro retina 15" is 14.13 inches wide and 9.73 inches in depth. That is about the same as the Port 15" and might even slightly exceed the limit. Will this work out?
@Chase - Your tablet will fit in the main pocket in the Port Tablet, but won't fit in the tablet pocket on the Port 14". The tablet pocket for Port 14" will hold an iPad mini or smaller. But you could fit the tablet in the larger open pocket on the left.
Also on the Port 14, would that tablet fit in the tablet pocket?
Hey S&P, just thought I would double check this on the Port Tablet. My tablet with my case is 9.5 inches exactly long, 6.5 inches wide, and 3/4 inch depth. That will fit in the pocket for the port tablet right?
I figured that was the case. Seems like the best bet would be to buy the official one to make sure it fits. Time to go increase my pledge!
@Chris - Good question. Anker is a huge company producing millions of these types of chargers. We'll probably produce a couple hundred. Their costs are just much lower than ours. I have a few of their chargers (the small lipstick sized one), and they're very solid.
Question on the battery - an Anker 10000 mah battery is $21 on Amazon, why is your 5000 mah battery almost 3 times the price at retail? I want the battery but trying to work out of I would be better off looking for a similar sized replacement. Thanks
@Philip - Thanks for pointing that out. Actually, if you scroll all the way to the bottom of the campaign page, we have a device guide. On the top row are the maximum widths that will fit in the laptop pocket for each sized Ports. On the rows below are the names of the devices, and also the measurements of the devices that we used to make our recommendation. We used the dimensions of the most current devices, but we will definitely take your suggestion to point that out in our next update, as it can be confusing. For the 13" the max width that will fit in the laptop pocket is 12.2, so you would need to size up to the Port 14".
I have the early 2015 model of the 13 inch MacBook Pro Retina. The dimensions don't seem to align with what you have for what is, I assume, the current model of 13 inch MacBook Pro. By the looks of things, I'll need the 14 inch bag. Would that be correct?
Also, you might want to note that those are the current sizes as Apple have used the same names for different laptops over the years and some customers may not be aware of that, or the associated size variations.
@skarsol - Yes, without a problem.
Will the 11" fit the new Surface Pro with the Brydge keyboard instead of the type cover? (16.2mm total instead of the ~13mm of the Surface+Type Cover)
Hi Ben - Thanks! The 14" will fit inside the Mailbag, but not Slim Mailbag.
Hello. This looks like a great product. Will the 14" fit inside the Mailbag on your website? What about the Slim Mailbag? Thanks!
I got confused between the screen size (diagnol of screen) and width of the laptop. I hope I am not making any mistake.
@Matthew - Sorry, I didn't quite understand your idea. By 'existing accessory strap", do you mean the strap that holds the battery pouch?
Saw the email about the luggage strap. Very interested in a strap, but it is way too fussy to be useful. I don't want to have to use two hands to undo two buckles.
Why not just have a strap with metal hooks that can be attached to the existing accessory strap and just slides over the handle over the roller-bag?
@Mayuri - Sorry about that, thought I had responded! I am seeing the dimensions online of the HP Spectre 360 as 12.79" x 8.6". Can you confirm? If those are indeed the dimensions, you would need the Port 14".
No reply :(
@Kai - You would need the 15" for that computer.
@Michael - Sounds good, thanks!
@Satchel & Page thx for answer. It will work for me so I'll keep my pledge. Looking so much forward to put my hands on it.
Hi satchel and page, the razer blades dimensions are 13.6 x 0.7 x 9.3 inches. Do you think that van squeeze into a port 14?
