Technology Editor and Fashionista, Judie Lipsett from Gear Diary (one of our favorite blog sites), posted an in-depth review of the new Mobile Edge Element Briefcase. She took the time to test out this stylish yet durable ladies laptop case taking lots of pictures of the pockets, interior shots of the striped lining and even took a photo with herself holding the case. I think this is important for ladies to see how the laptop bag actually looks when being carried. This shows the reader how the bag looks proportionately and actually looked great on Judie. For reference, Judie is 5’10”. The Element Briefcase comes in three colors, and she reviewed the Green Suede version.
Here is a brief overview of her review. To read the full review click on the link below. Enjoy…

Just in time for fall comes this beautiful new bag from Mobile Edge, the Element Briefcase With its moss green poly-suede exterior, chocolate faux leather trim, and white contrasting stitching, this bag is neutral enough to compliment any fall or winter outfit. But good looks are one thing; organization and laptop protection are just as important as presentation. Let’s take a look at how the Element measures up…
The Element is meant to be carried as a briefcase; two 15″ rolled faux leather handles are on either side, and although a woman with thinner arms could carry it on her shoulder that is not the intention. The Element is a larger bag, measuring approximately 16.5″ wide x 13.5″ tall x 5″ deep, it is designed to carry up to a 15.4″ laptop. All zippers have 1.5″ chocolate brown faux leather pulls, so they will be easy to open and close even when wearing gloves. The faux leather on either side of the suede center panels is slightly pebbled with a natural cowhide grain, which keeps the faux leather from looking like what it is. An 11.5″ wide 7″ deep zippered pocket is on the front, and it makes for the perfect place to carry plane tickets, a passport, or any other slim items that may need to be immediately accessed.
The interior of this front pocket gives a glimpse of the colorful and complimentary satin striped lining which is used throughout the bag. There is a metal “Mobile Edge for Her” plaque on a ball chain attached to the handle, and when it is removed, the small metal plaque (which states the same) on the right side will be the only external branding. Metal D-rings are located on either side of the bag for attaching the included shoulder strap.
What I Like: Pretty fall and winter bag with bright colorful lining; capable organizational pockets; padded dedicated laptop compartment; plenty of room for paperwork and files; those who abhor over-branding will like the simple hanging metal tag; can be carried as a briefcase or as a shoulder bag; I am really amazed by the excellent price, as it could easily sell for much more!
What Needs Improvement: Nothing
