Moft is back with a clever laptop sleeve that converts into a stand – ProWellTech
Moft is a smart company that makes smart products. I’ve been flaunting their laptop stand for a while. It was a turning point when I explained it in meetings, when we did it in person. The truth is, I ended up having to rip it from the bottom. It lasted well for a while, but the heat from the bottom of my MacBook eventually melted it into a sticky mess. It was fun while it lasted.
Ultimately, I think it was a design flaw. But even so, Moft is one of those companies you want to see succeed and continue to make interesting products that contrast with the traditional designs of most accessory manufacturers. For example, I’m not sure if I’m buying the convertible standing desk, but I’m glad it exists.
The Moft Carry Sleeve, on the other hand, is a little more my speed. It’s yet another convertible stand from the company, but for starters it’s one that doesn’t require any adhesive, so that’s a big plus point right there. Instead of relying on sticky stuff, the convertible case works similarly to a series of origami tablet cases currently on the market. It basically uses a combination of folding corners and magnets to snap into different shapes.
Honestly, I think I appreciate it. As a laptop case, it’s a bit too bulky for my taste. It’s a little big for my backpack. But the build quality is surprisingly good. It is made of realistic vegan faux leather which is more sustainable, scratch and water resistant than the real thing. All good news. There is a card slot and a small stretch neoprene rubber slot for expandable storage.
The case converts into a stand with a couple of folds, supporting the laptop at a 15 or 25 degree angle, with a small “flap limiter” at the front that prevents it from sliding too far forward. The company claims it can support a weight of up to 22 lbs. I haven’t tried, but my 15-inch MacBook looks fine so far. I guess we’ll see for sure when I start traveling again.
After all, the company name stands for Mobile Office for Travelers. Clearly not a lot of business for that at the moment, but he’s already made $ 300,000 on the Carry Sleeve Indiegogo, so there’s still interest, nonetheless.
