Solo Urban 17.3″ Briefcase Review

As soon as I turned 18, I made my first big purchase: my own personal laptop. I always wanted the ability to take all my video games with me, and preferred typing notes during class rather than writing them on paper. At the time, none of my friends had laptops and laughed at me, thinking I had made a huge mistake. Boy, were they wrong!

In our technological age, almost everyone now has a laptop, a smartphone, a tablet, or all 3 to keep them connected wherever they go! For me, it is integral to my work that I can work from anywhere.

My laptop allows me that comfort and ease, and now I get to work from home most of the time; it is convenient and necessary for me. T

he safety of my laptop and the comfort for me is very important to me.  One laptop briefcase on the market these days is the Solo Urban 17.3″ Briefcase. It is multifaceted to fit many of your laptop bag’s needs.

The Solo Urban 17.3″ Briefcase has been built primarily for travel use if you are flying, driving, or taking a train. Many other laptop backpacks and bags are also intended to be used for school, camping, hiking, and other more physical means of travel.

However, the Solo is simply a laptop briefcase, with enough compartments to also hold a mouse, computer chargers, a tablet, paper, and pens and pencils. It is not built to hold a multitude of other things such as clothes or food. I am totally fine with this, but I just want to warn you before you purchase one, in case you are looking for a bag with more features.

This is a very simple, standard laptop briefcase. It does not hold any additional features, and its only purpose is to get your laptop from A to B in a light and easy to move way. That being said, it easily accomplishes this goal.

I find the leather strap is incredibly comfortable on my shoulder and that it is one of the lightest bags I have used for my laptop. I do a lot of travel, and it is so compact that it fits nicely under the airplane seat in front of me, so I don’t have to ever store it in the overhead compartments.

This definitely gives me peace of mind, knowing that I always have immediate access to it. It has a sleek look, but like I said before, it is very simple, and just a standard bag. There are no incredible features that stand out to me, but it does seem to do the trick.

Buying a laptop bag is so important to keep your laptop and valuables safe from harm. I want you to make the right choice, to save you from heartache! The Solo Urban 17.3″ Briefcase is built purely for travel, especially airline travel.

However, I cannot recommend it to someone who does a great deal of travel/hiking, as it cannot store multiple bulky items. It gets you through security easily and its compactness is every frequently flier’s dream! Happy travels!
