    A Tech Bag Well Made

    I've had several messenger/sling bags but you nailed this one. The 16'is spacious enough to accommodate my laptop, iPad pro and EDC while commuting.

    Element Tech Brief 16" (VX42)

    Very happy with the quality and design of the tech brief. No complaints with the choice of material either. However, it's not meant to replace a backpack, but rather as an alternative for everyday tech carry.

    Great Bag!

    Really love the quality of this bag! Slim, but also with enough places to organize all I need on a daily basis. Love the ability to also convert from a messenger back to an over-the-should backpack.

    Love the Bag

    I am satisfied with this bag. I like the pockets and slim profile. The only complaint I have is in the time it took for me to get it. Who has 10 days shipping anymore? Appaka does, but they do have a nice product!

    너무 좋아요!!

    제가 찾던 브리프 케이스네요. 충전기 및 케이블, 심지어 16인치 랩탑과 함께 아이패드12.9인치까지 수납이 가능하네요. 잘 쓸게요.

    Computer bag for my 16 inch MacBook

    I've been looking for a good computer bag for my 16 inch MacBook Pro. This bag is extremely well built with lots of convenient pockets. I love that you can change the location of the straps to wear it as a backpack or shoulder pack..

    High quality and right-sized

    Fantastic quality of construction, great technical performance, and probably the best design in this category. It's also sized perfectly for a workplace EDC, large enough to hold just what you need and nothing more.

    Perfectly Slim!

    I personally loved the Tech Brief 16". However, I did have to return it because I switched over to a desktop set up and it was too big for my iPad Pro. The material and storage was perfect for my laptop needs and it felt great as a sling set up. The quality of the zippers and their locations were designed perfectly. Makes me want to buy another laptop!

    Slick and useful

    I was looking to purchase the sidekick bag from ALPAKA but unfortunately it was sold out so I went with elements tech brief laptop bag. Great choice. It looks great and very organized inside. Still waiting to purchase the sidekick bag.

    Tech Brief Perfect Daily Carry

    I have found the tech brief to be the best daily carry for my daily needs. The 16” is the way to go. The 14” is a bit too small.
