The design is really sophisticated and sleek. The leather-like and preppy details make the bag feel casual and classy. Definitely business ready. I’m a graphic designer so I appreciate all the aesthetic details that went into this bag.
This briefcase holds a ton of stuff, considering how sleek it looks from the outside. I put my Macbook Pro, charger and 1” thick planner in there with room to spare.
The front pocket is great as well. On top of the medium sized inner pocket, it has 2 pen pockets and 3 card size pockets for business cards, or anything miscellaneous.
The real reason I bought this bag was for the luggage strap on the back. I got back from a conference recently and took my previous messenger bag, and realized how complicated it was to lug multiple suitcases while my messenger had to be on my forearm or fall off my shoulder. I wanted a bag that was well-designed, affordable and convenient for my business travel. This bag checked all the boxes.
Looking forward to using this bag everyday!
Being able to put a laptop computer alongside a notebook was a really innovative idea. The inside of this case has a compartmentalized storage area which was thought out very well. There are pockets in which to put pads, notes, and even a few business cards! You can store your pens and pencils in holders which makes them readily available.
The strap which is hanging makes it possible to either carry the case over your shoulder or use the handles like you would carry any other case.
This is not a leather case, but is vinyl and the accessory trimmings are also vinyl. Interior is cloth and nicely padded.
One thing about standing behind this product by the SOLO peoples is U.S. Luggage Company with a 5 year warranty! That is very different and a welcome addition.
There are many ways to use this, but it seems that for the person who is a traveler there is a Velcro strap which allows putting this on another piece of luggage like your carry on with wheels so that you would not be fumbling around with two extra items.
Having used other products of this same style or purpose, I really like this one a lot since it is user friendly and was designed by a company here in America and built elsewhere, but with the typical business person in mind!
As far as design goes, I would say this is a fairly masculine design, but it still works for me (a woman). I like the small details on the bag and the plaid interior liner. On the exterior, the mix of black and brown means I can “wear” this with all outfits. I have a couple small complaints. First, the bag is fairly heavy, even when empty. Second, the black leather-like surface doesn’t look much like leather to me and looks a bit cheap. That might change once the bag gets a few scratches and dings to make it look more natural. Also, the material looks like it will handle rain, and that’s a benefit. All in all, I’m very happy with this stylish briefcase.
The SOLO Southhampton 15.6" Laptop Slim Brief Black Briefcase has both carrying handles and a shoulder strap–exactly as the universe intended it. The shoulder strap is removable if you’d prefer to carry the briefcase by its handles. However, there was a question in my mind as to whether this attractive looking bag could house my notebook and the slew of peripherals that normally travel along with it.
To find out, I grabbed my HP Envy 13 notebook and its peripherals and tried to get them all to fit in the briefcase. The notebook is smaller than the 15.6" size that the SOLO Southhampton Laptop Briefcase is designed to carry. Still, the notebook fit nicely in the protective pouch and didn't appear to slide around. The peripherals included the notebook's external power supply, a Kensington Orbit Wireless Trackball, an Oyen Digital U32 Shadow 1 TB portable hard drive, a Schiit Fulla DAC and a Belkin 10-key Numeric Pad. To my surprise, everything fit perfectly with room to spare. I was pleased.
The SOLO Southhampton Briefcase supports dual zippers in the main inner compartment. I take that as a sign that the manufacturer cares enough about quality to invest the extra pennies in adding a second zipper. The briefcase is padded, however not as well as I would have preferred. No doubt it will offer some degree of protection, but I wouldn’t recommend tossing it across the room to your friend. (Not that you should ever do that with any laptop bag!)
There is not a slew of pockets–in fact there are none. There is a front zippered pouch that has sections to hold your external hard drive, mouse, etc. My trackball was too large to fit into any of the sections (it did fit elsewhere in the briefcase,) but my hard drive and DAC fit just fine. Nothing on the Amazon page or in the manufacturer’s card attached to the briefcase suggested that the bag had any kind of leather (faux or real.) Therefore, I assume that the accents are not made of leather. They do like nice, however.
I don’t care for the plaid pattern inside of the bag. Maybe it’s a “guy thing,” but, still, it is the inside of the bag and therefore won’t be seen when the bag is closed. It is not enough of a problem for me to cause me any issue with using the SOLO Southhampton 15.6" Laptop Slim Brief Black Briefcase.
One thing I especially love is the interior. My old satchel had a black interior and made it nearly impossible to see black cables, dark microphones, etc. This has a plaid interior that is light blue and white. It makes things easy to see no matter the color of the cable or whatever. This is a great solution. Good thinking on the part of the manufacturer.
I also like the configuration of the various compartments although this will vary according to your needs. However, it does seem pretty well thought out. There is a place for my large laptop and my iPad. Plus spaces for journals, pencils, books kindle, etc.
In short, this is a pleasure to carry and a great update to my old black, nylon satchel.
I really like the plaid blue and tan interior with the deep red accents on the outside. It makes a perfect case if you are looking for a briefcase for just looks and style and would work perfect for either a man or woman.
This briefcase fit my needs very well. It is roomy, well padded, easy to carry with the strap or handle, and is stylish. It is made of vinyl that is meant to look like leather; however, I don’t think that anyone would mistake it for leather. Leather would be too extravagant for me. Like I said, I am a retired professor.
There is a convenient Velcro strap for attaching it to other luggage, if one is traveling.
I think this briefcase would be a nice choice as a gift for someone—e.g., student—who needs to carry a laptop and other supplies from one location to another on a regular basis.
So, I give it 5 stars.
The good news? This easily fits a 15.6" Lenovo T series, unlike a lot of nominal cases that claim to fit 15.6" laptops that essentially get stuffed in, and the padding isn't awful - it includes the bottom of the case. There's a second slot for a couple of notepads - or an Ipad in a case - along with a small pouch on the divider. There's a zipper closed 3rd pocket on the outside, and a newspaper slot on the other side.
The bad? This isn't exactly a high end case despite the price and looks. It seems to attract stains a bit, which shouldn't be a surprise given the vinyl construction. The strap isn't particularly comfortable if you've got 10 lbs or so in the bag. Also, the padded portion isn't removable and is probably no more than 1/4" thick.
However, all in all, not a bad bag if you're simply trying to get as small as possible for a reasonable price. 4 stars.
The briefcase is made of vinyl and polyester. It's made to look leatherish, and its styling is okay. My biggest complaint is that on the backside the brown faux leather strip says "Designed in New York." That's trying too hard and cheapens the appearance of the bag a bit. Keep that part of the bag on your hip so no one can see it. The best part of the styling is the little maroon and white accents at the base of the handles. A co-worker and I were discussing the bag, and he noted that the little bit of color saves the bag from looking like a cheap case from Costco.
The bag has a main compartment with spaces for your laptop, a tablet, and something else. It's a slim bag, so don't expect to cram a lot of stuff into it. If you have a laptop in the bag, don't expect to put more than an inch or two of printed materials. The base of the bag is only 3" wide, so it's not designed to carry a bunch of books.
The bag also has a front pouch that can hold pens and perhaps a small notebook. However, if you cram too much in the main compartment, this front compartment becomes difficult to get things in and out of. I'm not sure where to put my laptop cords. Right now I just stick them in the tablet sleeve.
Random thoughts... The padding on the strap feels cheap, though I do like the feel of the strap itself. The strap on the backside that's designed to slip over your luggage handle is plain ugly. I wish I could figure out a way to attach my umbrella to the bag. I also wish I had a zipper-less pocket on the backside of the bag to slip my newspaper in. I know. I'm the only one who worries about where to slip his newspaper.
The best thing about this thin bag is that it forces me to consider what I really need for the day, because I can't just keep stuffing more and more stuff into this briefcase. The load of things I carry has become lighter by necessity.
