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.

          What he really wanted was a bag that only had one flap to get to everything in the interior but he seemed to like the weight and the magnetic close option.

            I have always been a fan of Timbuk2 bag and this one is no different. This bag has been a real workhorse work and for personal use although the only con is that not fully idea for the bike, but then hey you can get a messenger bag.

              Comments about Core Laptop Briefcase:

              I own many kinds of messenger style/one strap, across the body bags -- For biking, traveling, hiking, and for work. I can be picky about them, and tell you what I like/don't like about each one. (I still use my original biking Timbuk2 messenger, which I bought nearly twenty years ago.)

              For work, this bag is excellent. It's simply styled, black, professional looking, lots of pockets and room inside, magnetic closures for the outside/front plus a slide clip if needed. It can be slid onto a rolling bag for travel usage, with a strap on the back specifically for this.

              The only complaint I have is that the zipper pulls jingle noticeably sometimes (I will likely just replace them with softer/non-metallic ones). Other than that, professionally speaking, this bag may be as good as you'll find.

                        I love the material. Extremely durable and lightweight. I use it everyday and feel like the makers already knew everything I would need in a bag. Great shoulder strap and absolutely love the think handle for the briefcase.

                          Comments about Core Laptop Briefcase:

                          I bought this bag for my husband to replace a well-worn Tumi Alpha messenger bag. This bag is light and very well organized, and much better suited to his new job (cool, not stuffy).

                          The laptop pocket fits a 15" MBP with room to spare, the front flap pockets are perfect for a charger (with the 3-prong extension cable) on one side, and "the essentials" on the other (a bag of cough drops, full size deodorant, emergency toothbrush, etc). In the main compartment, there is a slip pocket big enough for a tablet (iPad in case) or a composition notebook, another slip pocket big enough for his checkbook and a pen, and another slip pocket to keep papers organized. Finally, there's yet another long slip pocket on the exterior back (perfect for magazines and quick grab items) AND a pass through to go over the handle.

                          My only quibble is that the metal buckle in the front is kind of useless, flaps if you don't secure it, and might scratch if you rub up against something. Having recognized this and warned him, however, it should be ok.
