No secret around here that I love tech– I’ve been known to regularly carry two iPhones (only one has calling enabled, I swear!) and my Skullcandy Aviators even appeared in an outfit post. If I’m just packing a Kindle Fire I drop it right into whatever bag I’m carrying, but for more serious days I rely on my stylish and functional Brenthaven Collins Slim Brief (c/o).
It’s amazing how many things will fit into the main compartment! Additionally, there’s an front outside pocket (clasp closure) and very slim back pocket (zip closure) that would be good for storing small notebooks and documents.
The outside pocket is completely functional. It easily holds my full-size STEWART/STAND wallet and beauty essentials, including a full-size eyeshadow palette and concealer compact.
One of the best features of the Slim Brief is the space-saving laptop compartment. There’s no need to use a sleeve for your laptop because the specialized design of the pocket has extra insulation to protect against drops and bumps.
All zipped up and ready to go! The headphones are a bit of a squish, but they fit!
- MacBook Pro 15 inch (old)
- Skullcandy Aviator Headphones
- Kindle Fire HD (old)
- MAC Lipsitck in Russian Red (old favorite!)
- STEWART/STAND clutch wallet (c/o)
- Marc Jacobs Style Eye-con in the Starlet
- Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage
- and other odds an ends, including a pen from the airport in Cancun.
My Collins Slim Brief was thoroughly tested for comfort and ease of use by petite (5’2″), average (5’5″) and tall (6’7″) users. The adjustable strap is comfortable with a laptop on a two-mile walking commute and easily fits a large height range. Pockets and compartments also got raves all around for this very well designed bag. In my opinion the very best part of this bag is that it doesn’t sacrifice on style while remaining extremely practical. Fashion + function is where it’s at, whether for clothes, shoes or accessories.
