LoDo Laptop Attaché is perfect for your daily needs.

There are a lot of times that I simply carry too much with me. Somewhere along the line, I decided I need to be prepared for all situations. While being prepared is a good thing, carrying everything, but the kitchen sink everyday can just be too much. I didn’t realize how much I really didn’t need with me until I started carrying this compact, slim bag from Case Logic, the LoDo Laptop Attaché.

Initial Impressions
When I first got my hands on this bag, I thought it was too slim to fit all of the things I carry with me. Looks though, can be deceiving. The LoDo Attaché has a very classic style that is suitable for any occasion or destination. It comes in three different color choices – Petrol Green-Drab, Graphite-Anthracite, or Dress Blue-Navy Blazer. I opted for the Dress Blue-Navy Blazer, which is a very deep navy offset by light brown leather accents on the handles, zippers, and should strap loops. It’s a very simple, casual look that goes with pretty much anything.

I have been using this as my daily laptop bag for a while now and as it turns out, it was plenty big for my laptop, iPad, charging cable for the laptop, and some smaller accessories. Is it big enough for everything I want to carry? No, but then again, I really carry too much anyway. After carrying this bag around for that time period, I found that I am able to carry everything I need for a regular day inside the slim-profiled attaché case.

The bag is made from high-quality cotton canvas and just feels wonderful. It’s very sturdy and soft to the touch. This bag is actually large enough for a laptop with a 15.6″ screen, but I really thought my 13″ MacBook Pro fit nicely into the laptop pouch. I love that the main compartment has a double zippered closure and that the zipper doesn’t stick. It’s very easy to open and close when you want and secures your belongings when you want it to stay closed.

Inside the main compartment, there is a padded pocket for your laptop, a non-padded pocket for accessories or paperwork (I keep my tablet there), and an open space between the two for any extras you want to carry with you. There is no pocket on the back, but there is a luggage loop that you can attach to most rolling luggage. On the outside, there is a medium-sized zippered pocket with two mesh compartments inside – perfect for accessories and small personal items – and then there are two smaller pockets that close with a magnetic button snap that rest on the outside of the zippered pocket. These pockets are very slim. I actually have a battery case for my phone in one of them and it does budge out just a bit – enough that you can tell there is something in the pocket.

One of the biggest complaints I typically have about the shoulder straps on bags is that they aren’t reinforced enough to withstand daily use. The shoulder strap on the LoDo Laptop Attaché is perfect for everyday use. The strap itself is made from canvas and it has a soft, pad on it to protect you from shoulder fatigue or pain. I must say with the amount of stuff I’ve been carrying around, this strap and pad have been more than adequate and have really distributed the weight well.

The LoDo Laptop Attaché has been a really solid bag. I’ve not noticed any major signs of wear and like I said, I’ve been using it for some time and it’s holding up beautifully.
