Prefer a messenger bag? The Booq Cobra Brief is equipped with a Terralinq serial number (a service operated by Booq), where owners can register the bag to help recover it should the need arise. The laptop bag itself has a padded laptop compartment to fit up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro, as well as exterior pockets for an iPad and iPhone. Overall, the Cobra Brief is a high quality travel companion with a silky red interior that adds an element of luxury to the case, which retails for $295.

    1) Make sure you're using a browser with cookies enabled that isn't in private mode.
    2) Click on the price link to the desired configuration from this article or the Adorama price links in our Price Guides.

    4) After you enter your shipping information, move to the Payment section during checkout.
    5) Look for a link that says "Do you have a gift card or promo code?" next to the gift icon. Click that to bring up a coupon code field.
