    Elements Tech Brief 16"

    Comfortable to carry even when the bag is heavy. The bag has a thin profile so it may get a bit squeezy if a normal laptop and tablet are put together, which does not leave much space for anything else.

    Excellent product, the material on this is high end and the bag is exactly as advertised.

    Overall a terrific addition to EDC

    Terrific brief. Sleek design. Visually it’s very clean and blends in anywhere. Waterproof zippers all over is a big plus. The space is just right for the essentials. I’ve carried a MacBook Pro and iPad Pro at the same time and had room left over for odds and ends. The build quality is top-notch and suggests a far more expensive bag. The black and orange colorway is one of my favourites. The strap is over-sized for the bag, but I don’t mind that. It’s super comfortable! The handle on the back is the only sort of odd thing. It’s great that they include it. I don’t like shoulder bags that don’t have one. It’s thick and reinforced with metal, which is great, but the metal has bent a bit so it has a permanent curve. But it’s not bad, it stayed very close to the bag, Overall I’m very pleased and would highly recommend it!

    Go every where in style

    This is my first Alpaka product and I'm very happy with it. I work as a DJ so I travel a lot and with this bag, I can carry all my stuff like an Ipad pro 12.9, my MacBook air, my headphones, my hard disk and my USB pen drives easily. Everything it's easy to take off when you need it. The bag is easily transportable and does not feel heavy even when full.

    everything i need on the daily

    you already know that Alpaka bags are superbly crafted with excellent materials and stitching, no change to that here, it’s fantastic. for me, this bag is ideal for daily use, it holds everything hung i need and has space for more if need it. combine it with a couple of hub accessories and it’s boss level. it’s not comfortable for all day carrying, single shoulder straps will do that, but for carting my gear from car to office and the like, i could not be happier.

    Minimalist and Versatile

    Having owned this bag now for two months, I would like to give some feedback. First week of ownership I dropped a full glass of red wine over the bag with all my electronics inside. Terrified I cleaned it thoroughly with water and wipes. Then, I opened the pack and everything was dry inside. I let the outside dry for a night and not a stain whatsoever on the ballistic nylon. Very good! The versatility of having it as a briefcase or a shoulder bag are awesome. I’m using it with a heavy Lenovo P15 G2 and two tablets and I can comfortably wear it all day. However, the laptop fits so snug in the laptop compartment that I just put it in the main compartment. The blood orange inside is beautiful. The downsides are: everything you put in has to be very flat. Also, I would have liked to see some usb pouches.

    Fantastic brief!

    I have used it locally for several weeks and have done a business trip with this briefcase. Kudos to the team for a quality product! Luckily I bought the 16" version. It was spacious with lots of pockets to store all my stuff. The bright orange interior made it very trendy and the shoulder pad relieves the pressure on my shoulders. The case has multiple ways of carrying- 1) on a shoulder- looks professional! like a businessman with important documents and laptop 2) across the other shoulder- looks casual and hip. 3) lastly as a shoulder sling- looks like a weekend warrior. TGIF! Love it so far! just a couple of ideas for improvement for your next version: 1) find ways to tuck away the straps when not in use (otherwise it is difficult to tuck and was laid all over the floor- for people to step on) 2) the next version could be converted to a backpack instead. That will be cool!

    Highly Recommend For Office

    My experience with this bag is amazing. I work from home 4 days out of the week so it consists of moving tech from the office and setting up at my home office and this bag lets me carry my laptop, an iPad, all my cables, and other accessories I may need with ease.

    Good carry for your gadgets

    I use this with my iPad Pro 12.9 with Smart KB, and my Macbook Air 13", with my Airpods Pro, and a 65W UGreen charger and cables in the inner compartment. I use my iPhone 12 Pro Max and a Samsung S22 Ultra and my wallet on the outer compartment. Feels a bit tight, but they will fit. One thing I notice is that the shoulder strap pad tends to slip, so I use this more a a cross body bag. Over all I am satisfied with the bag, and its' versatility.

    Great size and style

    Very happy with the size. I bought the 14" but it was too small for my liking. Overall, very happy with my purchase!!
