The inside organizer fits into an airtight, waterproof main compartment in the BriefSåk Pro that's able to keep your all of your gear safe in bad weather, and the bag itself is made from a gray TPU coated Cordura ripstop fabric with welded seams so it will hold up well for years to come.

The exterior pocket uses an Aquaguard water-resistant zipper too, which makes this an all-around durable bag for everyday use. It's equipped with Duraflex brand clips and hardware, and a padded shoulder strap makes it comfortable to carry.There are also nylon webbing handles and a luggage strap that can fit over the handle of a suitcase.

Skog Å Kust says that the BriefSåk Pro was designed to be entirely waterproof, making it the perfect bag if you walk or bike to work and are often exposed to the elements.

Meh, won't fit my 17" PowerBook or the new 16" MBP.
I know, right! It doesn’t fit my 1993 COMPAQ LTE Elite 4/75CX laptop either. You’d think they’d cater for folk like us.

Air-tight? So... take it on an airliner, open it up at altitude and since it’s now a big ballon, it goes ‘poof’ in your face, then close it at altitude and when you land you have a vacuum-sealed MBP?:rolleyes:
