The 15" laptop brief is an indispensable supplement to anyone who needs to transport standard sized computer equipment. There is a wide selection of styles, fabrics and price ranges available. Durable, waterproof or water-resistant materials like canvas, nylon, polyester and leather ensure that electronics stay dry. Many bags are a combination of materials, such as a polyester fabric accented with calfskin trim and gold, silver or chrome hardware. Others are designed with fashion in mind and feature bright colors and bold prints. Padding inside laptop briefs is vital to absorb shock from movement and abuse. Media pockets hold devices like a cell phone, mouse and battery charger, while features such as a pen loop, file divider and key ring keep contents organized and within quick reach. Cases with an adjustable, padded shoulder strap and carrying handles are a bit lighter than those with rolling wheels. However, the ability to either pull or lift the 15" laptop brief provides the user with more options.
