ECBC REVIEW

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.


e/c/b/c is a premium travel bag company!
They offer stylish high-end bags that are sure to be the awe of any traveler.
Traveling in style can be tough, the cute bags never have enough compartments and the ones with lots of space are always a bit drab looking.
ECBC solved this problem by offering bags that are not only convenient in size, but also in style.

I personally was able to review a messenger bag and a matching Ares Mini sleeve.
I was also sent a Portable Power Pack (which I swear is a little piece of Heaven!!)

Let me start the review by telling you the 3 items I reviewed are only 3 of many!  And the color I choose to review in is only one option.   So if you are looking at my styles and thinking 'hmm that is not me' don't worry with all the choices they offer you are sure to find something you love that suits your needs.


First I want to talk about the Messenger bag.


This is one of the most affordable messengers, Poseidon brings it all together.  The messenger bag comes in all kinds of sizes for people to choose from so everyone will be able to find one that their laptop fits into. The front flap is self sealing with extra secure Velcro in case you don’t clip it shut. This bag keeps your gear safe from the elements with water resistant material and water sealing, self repairing zippers. Quick Access front pocket keeps the things you need most close at hand. Adjustable strap has a hide away pocket to keep the excess tucked away neatly. Never lose your power again, add an ECBC Portable Power Pack and get your gadgets charged like anywhere.

Features:
 Self-Repairing YKK Zippers
 The messenger bag comes in all kinds of sizes for people to choose from so everyone will be able to find one that their laptop fits into.
 High Density Protective Foam in Laptop Pocket 
Phone Pocket
 Quick Access / Ticket Pocket 
Padded Adjustable Shoulder Strap 
 Zippered Water Bottle Holder

 Available Colors: • Black • Blue • Green • Linen • Berry 

Dimensions: • 14.5 “x 12.2” x 3.5”

 Material: 
 Body – 1000d HD Kodra Nylon 
Lining – 210d Double Diamond Ripstop Nylon 


I love that they give you the dimensions, this way there is no guessing if you laptop or other devices will fit.  I also love all the different compartments I was able to fit all my stuff and I still had some left over room.

The inside is super soft so I don't have to worry about scratches on my devices.  Also I don't have to worry about my bag getting bumped and the stuff inside becoming damaged, there is a really nice amount of padding to product all your devices.
The outside is durable and able to with stand the elements.  Meaning if I get caught in a rainstorm I don't have to worry about everything insides getting soaked.
And to really make this product awesome even the shoulder area has a pad!  No more strap indents on my shoulders :)

The quick access pocket is also a really nice feature.  When I take my laptop with I always throw money and keys into my bag.  With my old bags they got lost, now with this quick access feature it only takes me a moment to get them.

Next I was able to review the Ares Mini Tablet sleeve
Again more colors and sizes are offered then the photo above.


ECBC Ares iPad sleeves are constructed of 1000d Kodra body and a cushioned, high-pile fleeced lined interio 

 Features: YKK Zippers 
 Internal Features: Fleece Lined Features
Colors:
 Black 
10 Blue
 Linen 
 Berry
 External Dimensions: Tablet Sleeve: 10.25″ x 8.25″ x 1.25″ iPad Mini Sleeve: 8.5″ x 6.5″ x 1.25″

Again love that we got dimensions!  I am horrible at finding sleeves that my Kindle Fire HDX will fit into. 

 Once more the soft linings were a huge plus in protecting my kindle surface.  And also because of this plush lining I don't have to worry about smudges on my screen.  The thicker padding again added lots of production for my device.  Oh and there was room in the front for the Power Pack I am about to gush to you about!
The messenger bag and Ares Mini are super cute together, but as I mentioned before they are only 2 of the many items offered by ECBC.

Now lets talk about the item I was shocked to learned existed.  I am guilty of going to a soccer game with an already dead camera or video recorder.  I take my kindle with places only to realize I have no battery life.
Most of the time I just temper and get mad at myself for being air-headed.  Well NO MORE!
The portable recharging pack

  3. I love the choices of colors in both bags! Also the fact there are so much room to put thing in the little pockets! I had to travel cross country and I wanted to bring my computer not only cause I knew where I was going was in the middle of nowhere! But also so I could keep in contact with my family at home. I used it for a carry on piece of luggage and the only thing I could fit in it was my computer! I would have loved to have so much room!

  18. How is the messenger bag for weight distribution? I have found that messenger bags get really heavy when I put my laptop in them. The iPad min sleeve seems really nice and I like that they have a variety of options for color.

    1. Not to bed I normally sling it across my opposite should (If I have it on my left shoulder I have the bag hanging to the right.)
      The extra padding at the should really helps to take a lot of weight pressure away

  29. This would be just what I need. We travel frequently and carry a myriad of electronic devices with us. This would be perfect as a 2-in1 to replace my purse. I currently carry my purse and store my ipad(with just a cover) in a laptop or carry-on bag. It's not ideal b/c I don't have convenient, instant access to my tablet.
