MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Laptop Briefcase, Backpack or Sleeve From Solo

by

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Solo New York to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a backpack, sleeve, or briefcase for the MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.

Solo New York offers a range of different bags, backpacks, and cases, to keep your Apple products safe and secure, and all accessories feature attractive, streamlined designs without super high price tags. We've got a selection of products to provide to MacRumors readers, as outlined below.


The All-Star Backpack Duffel, priced at $86.99, transforms from a backpack into a duffel and can hold your laptop and a ton of other stuff with its 22.6L capacity. There's a padded space for a MacBook, an internal organizer section, front pockets, and a separate compartment for your shoes or laundry to keep everything organized.


It's made from a tough nylon fabric that's lightweight and stylish, with shoulder straps and multiple hand straps so it's convenient to hold in any orientation.

Solo's Kilbourn Leather Backpack is one of its highest-end products, and for the $250 price tag, you get a quality bag made from full grain pebble leather that's perfect for when you want something classier than a traditional backpack but still need a lot of storage space.


There's a padded laptop compartment that can accommodate a 15-inch Macbook Pro, a separate internal iPad pocket to keep your ‌iPad‌ safe, an easy-access front pocket with a magnetic closure, and a back panel that slides over a luggage handle. Camouflage lining complements the black leather exterior, and padded back and shoulder straps make sure it's comfortable to carry.

If you prefer briefcase styles, Solo's $65 Voyage Briefcase has plenty of room for all of your essentials. There's a padded laptop compartment that's easy to get to, which is ideal for airline travel, plus a separate pocket for an ‌iPad‌. At the front, there's an organizer section where you can put all of your cables, power adapters, pens, credit cards, and other accessories, and there's space inside the main compartment for everything else.


The Voyage Briefcase is made from a heathered gray material that looks snappy, and there's a removable shoulder strap along with a hand strap. A back strap at the side allows it to slide over a luggage handle for easy travel.

Solo also has the $55 Duane Hybrid Briefcase Backpack, which, as the name suggests, converts from a briefcase into a backpack depending on how you want to use it. There's a padded laptop compartment that fits a 15-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌, a separate ‌iPad‌ compartment, a large front pocket that's able to hold all of your accessories, and two separate quick access front pockets.


There's a removable shoulder strap, a main hand strap for using it in briefcase mode, and padded backpack straps that tuck away when it's not being used in backpack mode.

Along with bags, Solo makes sleeves and cases for Apple devices, including the Portal Sleeve for the 13 or 15-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌, which is priced at $33. The Portal Sleeve is a padded laptop sleeve that can be tucked away in another bag, keeping your ‌MacBook Pro‌ safe from bumps and drops. It has an attractive dark gray exterior with camouflage lining, and it matches well with other Solo products.


We have one of each of the above listed products from Solo to give away to MacRumors readers. The first winner picked will receive the Kilbourn Leather Backpack, the second will get the All-Star Backpack Duffel, the third will get the Voyage Briefcase, the fourth will get the Duane Briefcase, and the fifth will get the Portal Sleeve.
