    I grabbed this up because it was on sale. I want something higher quality/leather, but couldn't find a setup that was exactly what I want. So, I "settled" for this in the meantime. I'm pretty happy with it, though. I wanted soething very small and limiting because otherwise I load up and carry too much. This one has just enough room for my tech- keeps me from adding files, etc.. I carry my XPS 13" (in the Dell sleeve) and my AOC 15" monitor comforably in the main compartment. The side copartment is just enough for a fold-flat mouse, power cord, ear buds, and some spare batteries. I'm also partial to the orange interior- at least for a casual case. Wait! I just found a third pocket, too. I probaby wont use it much because I don't want the little case bulging- trying to travel lighter. I intended to replace it quickly once I found what I want, but now I'll probably hold on to it until it wears out.

    My old laptop bag had succumbed to moldy patches from who knows where, so it was high time for me to find a new one. I didn't want to spend much on a laptop bag, so when this one came on sale for $9.99, I jumped on the deal. My laptop fits snugly inside the bag and there is enough room for the power cord and other essentials. The strap is noticeably shorter than my old bag, but I guess that's not too bad. I just sling it over my shoulder and go. My laptop feels like it is protected in there (15" laptop). I like the coloring. The pop of orange is nice. Overall, I don't regret this purchase. Even full price, this bag is nice, but even better on sale. Couldn't be beat.

    The Solo Urban Briefcase was a no-brainer for me when I purchased my new 15” MacBook Pro. The laptop fits in fine with plenty of space and is protected on both sides and the base by inner lining padding. The straps are adjustable and zippers are nice and strong. For my needs, one of the best features is all of the extra pockets and pouches, as the new MacBook Pro requires lots of peripherals and adapters that store well in the pockets, which also vary in size to accommodate different types of adapters and pens. The outer canvas-like material feels sturdy, so overall, more than just having a carrying case for your laptop it feels like your laptop is well protected.

    I was looking for a commuter bag to carry my work laptop (15.6) and a surface pro 4 back and forth to work. In that basic functionality, this is perfect. The issue comes with the associated paraphernalia these devices require (charge cords etc.). With a single charge cable, travel mouse, pens, and the two devices, the fit is perfect. Throw in the second adapter and anything else and you will want a bag with a little more room. Initial reaction is ideal for trips to and from work, but you may find it lacking for extended trips. Construction seems to be sturdy. Zippers have a nice solid feel to them. Could use a bit of padding in the "tablet" sleeve as there is none. Overall it suits the purpose I bought it for rather well.

    Great Bag with Lots of Space

    I have a Razer Blade 15" and a giant 1" thick Dell work laptop. Either will fit in the large pouch and I can even fit the Razer Blade in the front pouch with the Dell in the large pouch. The Blade is thin enough that it will jostle a bit in the large pouch, but it's padded enough for my use case. I was easily able to fit my Blade, its charging cable, SD card reader, tablet, and some other accessories in the bag with no issues. I'm not a huge fan of the orange, but it's only on the inside and does provide a nice contrast to find the contents.

    Look, it is a bit larger than my new Lenova 11.5", but this is good as it will also hold the mouse, mouse pad, and any other documents or paperwork that might need to accompany it. The other that I purchased a couple of years ago for my 15" HP Pavilion had a longer shoulder strap that would cause the briefcase to bounce off my hips when cycling with it, and the shoulder straps finally came loose at the briefcase ON BOTH ENDS that needed to be mended. The strap on this one is shorter raising the case to just below my armpit: A better fit for cycling and even strolling. Kudos on the better design!

    Sturdy reliable and well organized, I have had this bag for a few years and it works For my Computer/ laptop and surface. The compartments were well thought out the handle has gone through great stress and it is still like new. The zippers are strong and the whole bag is durable. It is not bulky and would have enough room for maybe a couple file folders. It has places for pens, phone and pockets for larger things that would be used along with a laptop. I really like the way it was set up and it has been back-and-forth tossed in the car (not that I recommend that), but handled a little bit roughly and everything has survived inside and outside.

    Solo makes the no frills briefcase for a 17" laptop (least expensive on the shelf when I was looking). But even so, the quality of materials and of workmanship appeared to be excellent, and both have held up over the 2 months I have used the briefcase. Also, this case has the same compartments and accessory features as cases twice its price, so I don't feel cheated of any of the fancy accoutrements. All in all, I am a smugly satisfied customer: I think I got a real value on this Solo briefcase.

    Yes, I did pick up a laptop case, for my iPad Pro 9.7 that has a Zagg Rugged Book Pro on it. The reason I ultimately got a larger laptop-like case for my tablet, is because It does FIT ALL my "mobile" tech gear! Plus has a spot for a tablet, not including the inner zippered part thats for a laptop. What I did was, when I bought my Solo Urban Laptop Briefcase, I put my iPad Pro 9.7 in the Zagg Rugged Book Keyboard case. It didn't exactly fit in the tablet slot in the case, so I have to carry it in the laptop part. Which is fine, since I can fit all my paperwork in the tablet slot. Also it has a spot for your pens and or pencils, papers, cords etc..

    Great Laptop Case

    I bought this case as a smaller alternative to my larger, travel case that has more pockets and wheels. Sometimes I just don't need to carry as much stuff with me to places, so I swap for the smaller size of this case. It still handles my laptop and it's cables for power, a mouse, etc. without any problem. If I had one complaint on the case is the pocket that is divided up into smaller pouches could have better access by having the zipper go further down, allowing the entire pouch to fold open. Even so though, access is decent enough to not be a problem. All around, a good case. :)

    This case is exactly what I was looking for! I travel and don't bring a laptop so do not need a huge bag. I used to travel with my laptop bag but it's too bulky for what I need. This bag does not hold a lot but I am able to take a full sized Ipad (with thick case), a leather portfolio and about an inch or so of documents. It can also hold my chargers, glasses and a few other small items. It seems to be well made and is sporty looking but professional. It has a strap so that it can ride on top of my rolling bag. I highly recommend.

    Great bag but straps are not removeable

    I needed a new bag to hold a 15.6 inch laptop. While Best Buy had several to choose from, most were at the higher end, price wise. Being this one was on sale and met my basic needs. I selected it to purchase. The only draw back is, I am not one to carry items with a strap over my shoulders and unfortunately this bag does not have end snaps to take off the strap. After getting home and making sure the laptop fit the bag, I removed the strap with a pair of scissors. While it is really a good bag, it would have been rated higher, had the strap come with the end snaps to remove it from the bag.

    I've been looking for awhile for a case to hold a 15" MacBook (white original style). It's been a little hard to find one because of the slimmer models now available, but this one does! It's a little roomier inside than what I need so it will accommodate a slightly larger computer than I have. It has lots of space left to carry all you cords and attachments, plus additional pockets for an Ipad or reader, pens, notebook (the paper kind, remember those?) or anything else you'd need to pack up. It opens wide for easy access to everything and is built with sturdy construction and materials. This would be an ideal bag for traveling.

    Decent Bag w/Minimum Storage Pockets

    Bag serves my purpose fairly well which was to stop carrying my normal size work laptop in my Ogio backpack when visiting my clients, and slim down to a smaller bag with a smaller Surface Go tablet. Most of the other bags at BB were a little bulkier than I wanted, and this bag was one of the thinnest. It was also on sale and cheap when I purchased it. I can get my tablet, binder, and a few minor IT tools, parts in the bag but do wish the storage was a bit more ample.

    I had a new laptop which i rarely bring out so i needed something. So while shopping this one stood out not only for price, but how well put together it was. First thought was its cheap and not good but price pulled me in. But after getting it and using it for a while got to say it worth it. My only complaint is i think their should be more padding in the outside pocket between the laptop and where you would put you cables

    For less than $10.00 on Deal of the Day I am happy with my purchase. It is functional for my needs and, has sufficient pockets both inside and outside of the bag to effectively serve its purpose. (It holds my Samsung 10.1 Tablet, magazines, papers, pens, vitamins and my medication.) It is not bulky and light in weight. Two handles for carrying ease, and a cleverly place strap if needed. I am very happy with my purchase!

    Nice Bag

    Hey folks, it's a laptop bag. You can't get that excited about it. However, I can say it will hold a 15.6 inch sized laptop, it offers adequate padding/protection, and it has slots, sleeves and pockets to hold accessories. Styling is conservative and simple. The only potential drawback (for me) is that the shoulder strap, which I will probably not use much, is not detachable. That's certainly not a big deal. But what was a big deal was the $9.99 price I paid for the bag during the Black Friday sale. That made it a great deal!

    I purchased this bag after having a scare with my laptop. I am a major techie, I love buying good technology that is versitile and everything I have for it must serve a job. This bag protects my precious laptop, carries all of my accessories, is easily organized, goes with any outfit (I am still a girl), works great for carrying my notebooks for classes at college and just all around works perfectly. I am sooooo happy I found this bag and suggest anyone that is looking for one takes it for a test drive!

    This is a great laptop briefcase, especially, compared to most. Not only were the features better but the price was much cheaper than all the rest, by far. It has thicker padding, more compartments and more pockets. There's even more pockets within those compartments. Furthermore, I only saw one laptop briefcase, besides this one, that had a padded strap. And even that padded strap couldn't compare to this one. The picture online doesn't do it justice. Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend this to any and everyone.
