SOLO Bradford 17.3″ Rolling Case

I really love this rolling case. I’ve tried several of them over the past few years. After two spinal surgeries, carrying around a standard laptop bag causes me too much discomfort, so I’ve started to only get those that roll. This one is a really nice one. It has a lot of pockets and space and it glides very very nicely across the floor. I travel a few times per year and this will be perfect to hold my laptop, tablet, the various accessories plus a few of my carry on items to boot.

In fact, I think if I were only going to be gone for a day or two, I could easily pack just this bag (clothing in the “file compartment” and be on my way. I’m a light traveler, but even so, there’s lots of space in this thing. A bonus is that it’s small enough to fit under the seat in front of me – I cannot stand the mad rush for overhead bin space, so I rarely bring anything that needs to go up there. It’s just not worth the headache.

The thing I love the most is the handle that disappears into a small zippered compartment. This makes it easy to carry into a meeting without having to carry ANOTHER bag with me. AND that space with the handle isn’t all lost, like I’ve seen all too often. If you look in there, there’s two little pouches to stash more stuff – I use them for my medication and makeup bag. I wouldn’t use it for day-to-day use because it’s a little on the heavy side, but this is absolutely perfect for me for my travel. The exterior has a very nice and professional look and feel, with a little bit of style to go with it.

My biggest (and really, only) gripe is the lack of a sleeve on the back side so that you can slide it over your luggage handle. It does sit on top nicely, but it’s not easily secured. I also am careful about packing stuff in here to be sure the weight is distributed to keep it from tipping forward when “parked”. But that’s pretty standard on all of the rolling laptop cases I’ve used.
