What's this all about?

Smaller and more structured than a classic messenger, more relaxed than a standard issue briefcase, the Core works with denim and a blazer and dress shoes if you must. The Core's sleek exterior disguises its big functionality; a weather-tight flap and fuzzy liner keep your tablet and laptop safe and multiple internal organizer pockets keep you on point. A removable shoulder strap and luggage attachment strap lighten a heavy load but you may choose to go old school and carry the Core by its grab handle.

      Comments about Core Laptop Briefcase:

      after trying over 30 different bags ranging from back packs , traditional briefcases and messengers none fit the bill for my specific carry needs. The core briefcase has but one flaw in my opinion the padded handle isn't all the comfortable, I would prefer to see a traditional nylon web handle. The bag however fits all my EDC work , a macbook air in a padded case , power cord. two 8" tablets with power cords. various work files a good book and two moleskines in the front pouch. Perfect as if I designed it myself.
