If you take a look at my list of bag reviews, you’ll see Solo NY mentioned in most of them as they make some of the best travel and commuting ones out there. Their latest is their Force Collection of bags that are made for business and commuting needs while being water repellent on top of that. One of these is the Solo New York Storm Slim Brief, a great bag that’s perfect of 15” laptops, tablets, documents, notepads, and anything else you need for business or personal use.
As soon as I removed it from the box and protective plastic it came in, I loved the outside nylon feel as it’s textured like a rugged backpack that’s also coated with a water repelling layer which is always a plus when on the go. Now when you’re out and about carrying portable electronics or documents, you don’t have to worry about getting them wet or soggy should the elements decide to rain on your parade.
When you open this lightweight but study bag, you’ll find a fully padded 15.6″ laptop compartment with a Velcro strap to keep it in place, along with a slim but nice sized space in front of it where you can place portables, papers, pens, etc. to make sure you have everything you need to get down to business.
As with any commuter bag worth its salt, there’s also a spacious front zippered pocket for any smaller things you wish to place in it such as a cell phone, glasses and such, along with a slim zippered pocket on the front of that that’s perfect for keys and other small things you want at the ready. There’s also a removable and adjustable padded shoulder strap to make sure things stay comfortable should you want to transform to a messenger bag-like style. Lastly, if you want to use this as a carry-on bag for flights, Solo New York has you covered with a back panel opening that lets you slide this over your luggage handle to make things super easy for you and your travels.
The Solo New York Storm Slim Brief is a great bag for all your business and commuter needs. There’s more than enough space for a 15” laptop, a tablet, documents and more to fit without sacrificing keeping your items safe and secure. Did I mention it’s also super stylish and comfortable? Couple this with an always welcome padded, adjustable shoulder strap, an awesome water repellent coating, and a solid five-year warranty should anything happen, and you have one of the best and versatile commuter bags out there.
