Super versatile and excellent value !

Quality product with maximum versatility. Almost purchased the tumi 3 way bag till I found this big. So happy with my choice and excellent price point. My only nit pick is with the attachment clasp for the shoulder strap. Not a fan.

Love this bag

Even after it shipped it took a long time to get here but worth the wait. This bag is great. It does not bloat size much after putting stuff in it. Lots of area for storage and accessories and easy to organize. The dual straps is also a good add on. I’m really impressed with my second alpaca purchase.

I recently acquired the Elements Tech Brief Pro by ALPAKA, and it has completely exceeded my expectations. This remarkable product has redefined the way I transport and safeguard my essential tech gear, documents, and other personal items. To begin with, the design of the Elements Tech Brief Pro is nothing short of exceptional. Seamlessly transitioning between a sophisticated briefcase and a comfortable backpack, it's the ideal companion for every occasion. Whether I'm heading to the office, a café, or embarking on a weekend adventure, this bag adapts effortlessly. The dedicated compartments for my laptop and iPad are what initially attracted me to this product, and they've proven to be outstanding. Both sections are generously padded and lined with soft, scratch-resistant material, ensuring top-tier protection for my devices. I own a 15-inch laptop and an iPad Pro, and there's ample space for both without any concerns about them coming into contact or getting scratched. What truly sets the Elements Tech Brief Pro apart is its organizational prowess. The multitude of pockets and compartments for documents, chargers, pens, and smaller items is truly impressive. Keeping my work essentials neatly organized and within easy reach has never been easier, eliminating the frustrating search for misplaced items. Additionally, the zippers are robust and glide effortlessly, enhancing overall convenience. The build quality of this product is second to none. ALPAKA has used high-quality materials, and the stitching is impeccable. It feels sturdy and ready to withstand the demands of daily use, which instills confidence that my valuable tech gear is secure. Comfort is paramount when it comes to backpacks, and I'm pleased to report that the Elements Tech Brief Pro excels in this regard. The adjustable padded shoulder straps and breathable back panel ensure comfort during extended wear, reducing sweat and discomfort. In conclusion, the ALPAKA Elements Tech Brief Pro is a game-changing accessory for individuals who value versatility, organization, and protection for their tech gear and documents. It seamlessly combines the convenience of a briefcase with the comfort of a backpack while keeping your valuable items safe and impeccably organized. I couldn't be more delighted with my purchase and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking a multifunctional and stylish solution for their tech-carrying needs.

New Briefcase

My new daily carry briefcase, excellent in almost every way. Don’t care for the backpack straps, aside from that it is everything I need.

Best Messenger Bag in a long time

I’ve had probably a dozen mess bags in the last decade from Tumi to Briggs&Reilly, Nomadic, AER, etc. They all check some boxes but all fall short of perfection. This bag is the closest I’ve come to perfect. The organization options are next level in that the interior pockets are stitched to the wall of bag but NOT THE FLOOR, which renders the bottom of the bag useless. Pocket placement ensures the bag stands when loaded out. The 2 quick access magnet pockets (top front and rear) are sneaky spacious and the 2 “hidden” pockets are great, so great one tool a week to find lol. The materials are top notch, as you’d expect from ALPAKA but the interior is next level. The grey gives a great contrast when looking inside. The handles are padded and comfortable. Personally, I cut out the hidden backpack straps as I have no use for them so it added a great large pocket to keep a light jacket etc. As for cons, there are some personal gripes but nothing remotely close to a deal breaker. The front zippered pocket could’ve extended the zippers down the sides (ala Bravo Tote front pocket) but it’s absolutely fine as is. No water bottle holder (I don’t carry one but I know many do) and that’s it. Great job ALPAKA. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Sleek, clever and feels like a tank.

Lovely! It’s well thought out but unfortunately rather heavy. That’s something to keep in mind. The backpack-config is super useful, but the trolley pass through zipper hurts a bit on the back while wearing.

Beautiful minimalism that a few tweaks would make perfect

I’ve been looking for a laptop bag that serves as a briefcase and sling, and the Elements Tech Brief Pro mostly fits the bill. It’s fairly thin, has useful pockets inside, and two great sleeves that fit my 16” MacBook Pro (work) and 13” MacBook Air (personal) perfectly. A few tweaks would make this bag perfect for my use case: - I never use the backpack shoulder straps so it’d be great if they were detachable. I might just cut them off to save weight and make the bag even thinner. That said, they do hide in a compartment so they’re not bothersome - There are only 3 strap mount points so in sling mode I have to wear the bag such that the strap is on my right shoulder and crosses to my left hip. I’d prefer the opposite, but it’s not a big deal - The pad on the strap is not movable/removable so in sling mode it just lays uselessly across my chest, plus it gets in the way of shortening the strap Otherwise I love it. You probably don’t care about those caveats and even if you did, I can still recommend it

Great multifunctionality, but too heavy

I like the unique design and the ability for the bag to be used as a briefcase, shoulder bag or backpack, all of which are well designed and very functional. Design and build are both premium, however this comes at the cost of weight. While the straps are nicely padded and help to alleviate this, I still think it could and should have been a bit more lightweight. Ultimately, I like the bag overall, though I think there are too heavy materials and too many inner pockets (which can hardly be all utilized given the slim profile and limited capacity), resulting in a heavier than necessary overall weight.

Great versatile laptop bag

Awesome for the most part with great design, I have a few concerns that some stitching won't last as it's starting to pull out after 2 days.
