I travel at least 6 times a year for work, if not more. Depending on where I’m traveling, my needs will vary, including the items that I need to pack. If I’m going to be gone for a few days, I need to pack smarter because I hate the dreaded wait at bag check. I try to find bags that are functional, affordable, and can carry everything I need as lightly as possible.
For more professional trips, such as press trips or conventions, I love taking my new Solo Bradford Briefcase Messenger Bag.
This hybrid briefcase is very unisex in its design and can be used a professional looking briefcase or a more casual messenger bag as needed. It holds quite a bit but still maintains a nice profile that’s not too bulky, which I LOVE.
The Bradford features a fully padded laptop compartment that can hold up to a 15.6″ laptop – perfect for that new Macbook Pro you’re getting for Christmas!
The Solo Bradford Briefcase also features and internal iPad/tablet pocket, two front organizer pockets, a rear pocket, and padded carrying handles. You can also add the removable and adjustable shoulder strap for a messenger bag style.
The self-closing magnetic flap secures your items within the bag, but makes everything inside easily accessible. This bag is perfect for anyone, no matter for travel or daily commute to work.
I also love the key holders on the front of the bag. You can easily attach your keys, a USB drive, or even a work ID to the front. Perhaps the best feature of the bag is the full leather bottom; this means no matter where you’re forced to set down your bag when traveling, you can easily wipe it with a sanitizing wipe. This, I ADORE!
At only $59.99, it’s incredibly affordable and makes a perfect gift the for the holidays, whether for your wife, husband, or a college student.
At the time of this post, the bag IS CHEAPER on Solo’s website than it is on Amazon.
