ORLANDO, FLA. — Jill-e Designs in September will further
expand its niche of technology bags designed for fashionconscious

Three new models will be available next month. Jill-e shared
the details with TWICE exclusively in advance of the ship date.

Two new bags in the company’s Ego line, a satchel and a
messenger style, will be available in black or tan plaid and
will feature weather-resistant padded exteriors and interior
compartments, and task-specific and hideaway pouches for
accessories and small personal items.

The Satchel measures 15 inches by 5.5 inches by 11.5
inches, with room in the central compartment for a 12-inch
laptop or d-SLR equipment. It sports 8.5-inch drop leather
carrying handles, a clip key keeper and ID tag. It weigh 2
pounds empty. The suggested retail will be $149.

The Messenger measures 12 by 4 by 9.5 inches, with room
for a 10-inch tablet or d-SLR in the main compartment. It adds
an adjustable cross-body shoulder strap, two secure front
drop-in pockets and an easy-access top zipper guard on the
fold-over top flap. It weighs 1.8 pounds
and will retail for $99.99.

Jill-e will also add the new EveryWear Gadget Bag to its
Classic line of camera bags.

Sized roughly between the Ego Satchel and Messenger,
the water-resistant nylon bag with leather accents also
comes in tan or black and can hold up to 15 pounds of gear,
including a professional d-SLR setup and lenses. It boasts
an array of internal dividers, a protective sleeve pocket designed
for a tablet, hideaway pouches for personal items,
and task-specific pockets for pens, glasses, etc. It also retails
for $99.99.

In addition, earlier this month, Jill-e refreshed its Classic
medium photo bag line. The company added a zippered
slot to the bags in the portfolio, allowing a user to trolley the
bag with a larger rolling bag, as well as sturdier hand and
shoulder straps. Also added is a new bone-colored bag with
deep red trim.

Every Classic medium bag features padded exterior
walls, dual-zipper top entry for one-handed access to
contents, adjustable interior Velcro dividers, external
storage pockets, and an internal netted pocket. For photographers,
the Classic medium bags hold one to two
camera bodies, a flash unit, one to three lenses, and accessories
such as extra batteries, memory
cards and lens-cleaning kits.
