hardt sak Hardt Sak is a mobile laptop stand. This provides users with a flexibility not currently offered by allowing the use of a laptop stand where and when it is needed most. Features of the bag include a hard shelled body that can expand to hold multiple items. It doubles as a laptop stand when the padded strap is unbuckled and removed. As a bag, the hard shell protects your laptop from the environment. As a stand, it protects your lap from excessive heat which can lead to Toasted Skin Syndrome among other healthrelated issues. Hardt Sak also raises the screen’s height to prevent craning of the neck and promote good posture.
