Excellent brief-case style Laptop Case
David from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
The biggest reason that I went with a brief-case style carrier for my laptop was protection, which this case provides. It has a hard outer surface that gives the type of protection the softer laptop bags can't and on top of that there's a cushion-like nylon bag inside for further protection. Because the computer in the bag fits snuggly against the document sleeves you get even more extra cushioning and the computer doesn't shift, shake, or slide at all. Another benefit is that inside the case there are four snaps that hold it in its most compact state. Undo the snaps and the case expands ~1/4" or so to increase its capacity. I didn't use or appreciate this when I first bought the case, but since then I've bought a Kindle DX: with the snaps undone the laptop and the Kindle fit snuggly against each other without any damage to the kindle screen. If it didn't expand like this I would have been a lot more hesitant to put my Kindle in there with the lap top. The pockets are sufficient. There are 3 slots for business cards, one larger pocket with a fold over flap (I think this is for a blackberry, but I don't have one so I keep other stuff in it), a pocket with just a strap over it (I keep the square part of my power adapter in this), two holders for pens on the right, and above both of those two sleeves for documents. The document sleeves also have adjustable straps, with velcro instead of snaps, so that you can hold even more documents. The only thing I would like improved on the pocket arangement is another couple of pen holders. I like to carry a blue pen, a black pen, a red pen, and a mechanical pencil. With only two pen holders I put the red pen and the pencil in the pocket that was meant for the blackberry (plus I keep some cash in there for vending machines or fast food). The leather is of good enough quality. It feels nice to touch and looks okay. The hinges are very nice. They seem to have 3 stages: Open: the case is pretty much locked open. It takes a minor amount of force to start closing it. It's not going to fall or slide closed in this position. Midway: you can open it about 30 degrees or so to just slide something in or out. If you let go it will fall closed. Closed: with the cased closed and the latches closed nothing can possibly opening this thing accidentally. The locks work fine, but I don't know anything about picking locks so I can't comment on the quality of them. It's 3 digits on either side and they're pretty easy to set up. Most of the time I just leave it on the correct numbers to open automatically. The shoulder strap I haven't used at all. It does have the rings on the tops of the corners for it, and I have the strap somewhere, but it's not really heavy enough to justify using the strap so I just don't. The rings are there, but they don't detract very much from the look of a briefcase unless you really focus on them. It's advertised as being easy to take through airport security. I don't fly that often and haven't since I bought the case so I can't testify to that. In all I'm very pleased with this case. It looks professional, it does its job of protecting the computer well, the adaptability to stay slim if needed or expand to hold additional devices and documents is great, I've had it for about 3 months and it doesn't show any damage from use, and for the amount of protection it gives it's supprisingly light-weight. I'd recommend this case.

Latch design has been improved since original. I use the product to carry my papers and books back and forth to class.
perfect for the college grad
Debbie Klingeisen from Reedsville, WI – Verified Buyer
Great starter case for college grad starting his first job, plus room for the laptop. The Attache case looks classy.
Robert from San Diego, CA
Received the case as a gift. It looked great. Within 3 months of gentle use, the right hand latch shattered when I opened the case and fell in pieces into my hand. 5 year warranty is a joke. SOLO makes you pay for shipping both directions. They will inspect the item and "if they determine there is a defect" they will repair it. If they determine any failure is possibly due to normal wear and tear or any type of abuse, they will not make a repair. Either way you have to pay at least $30 shipping for the round trip and still end up with a used item that you have now paid an extra $30 for and may or may not be repaired. That didn't sound like a deal to me! I saved my $30 and bought a better quality case elsewhere.

I bought the black one as a gift for my husband. He uses it for his job. He is very happy with it and has thanked me more than once, since it's arrival, for getting it for him. I think it looks very stylish.
Love it. Unbeatable price!

This is my 3rd
Griff from Dallas
Not enough burgundy cases available. Prefer computer carrier in the lid. Good price, takes a lot of beating and overfilling. Could use better metal on locks. Would buy a fourth. Right size and don't have to carry separate computer bag. Good for security to hide computer.
