A Leather Briefcase / Backpack as Unique As You
The MacCase Premium Leather Flight Case is a not for everyone, which is an odd thing to hear from a company trying to sell you something. The world is full of perfectly acceptable laptop cases, in all their boring, dull, uninspired glory. We created this design to stand apart from that, a leather briefcase
that is unique as the people who chose to purchase one.
Many of the traditional leather briefcase touches are present in the Flight Case. But look closer and you'll see that not only does the bold design set it apart, but the details do as well. The beefy, riveted leather handle and the stainless steel finished metal clasp for the flap are familiar. But notice how the clasp does not attach to the exterior surface of the front flap as on most leather briefcases.
It's attached to the underside surface allowing for a much cleaner and understated look. The chrome feet along the bottom edge will keep both the leather and the contents of the case safe from wear and tear, extending case life. The front panel loop is the safety catch attachment point for the removable pouches. All these details come together to create a leather briefcase
design that is radically new, yet somehow familiar.
Leather Briefcase and Leather Backpack Functionality
Functionally, the Flight Case holds a wide variety of hardware including laptops up to 15" along with any tablet you need to carry with it. The padded, removable divider insures that the two will not come in contact, keeping them both safe. Other things like a writing folio, a three ring binder or printed reports will also fit. The main compartment is complemented by three additional larger pockets as well as the removable front pouch. If more room is needed, an optional extra large pouch is available with 50% more room than the standard pouch. So as laptop cases go, it's got the room to store, transport and protect the things you need to carry.
One of the things that make this design so unique is the ability to turn it into a full fledged leather backpack. While the look is not one of a traditional leather backpack, the fit is comfortable thanks to the optional backpack strap set featuring the beefy 35mm wide leather straps. As with any backpack, wearing the Flight Case this way allows for a hands free user experience and also distributes the weight more evenly across the body preventing fatigue.
How is the Flight Case Leather Briefcase Different From the Flight Jacket?
In a word, structure. The Flight Jackets are fully padded but unstructured. The Fight Case, while looking radically different from a traditional leather briefcase , is built in a traditional leather briefcase way. Basic structural panels are covered in foam, lining materials then exterior hides. This not only provides some of the highest levels of protection for your laptop and tablet inside, but also allows the Flight Case to be free standing, like a typical briefcase.
While there are many sizes for the Flight Jackets, iPad, 11",12", 13" 15", there is only one Flight Case. This model is for someone who likes the look of the Flight Jacket but needs a bit more room than the Flight Jackets can provide. The extra room comes from the 2.5" width of the leather briefcase where the Flight Jackets are much more narrow and compact. Also, the Flight Case is compatible with any size laptop from any brand up to 15". The Flight Jackets work best as MacBook Pro cases and MacBook Air cases.
As a leather briefcase, the Flight Case has a much more substantial handle than the Flight Jackets. The optional backpack straps are also much wider. The Flight Jacket includes the padded shoulder pad as part of the package. This is an option on the Flight Jacket. Lastly, the Flight Case has a Large Pouch option which adds storage capacity. Both the Flight Case and Flight Jackets are convertible into fully functional leather backpacks. While we agree that each doesn't fit any definition of what a leather backpack traditionally looks like, over 70% of customers who order either model, order the backpack option.
Both the Flight Case and the Flight Jacket are extraordinary laptop cases. The Flight Case just happens to be an excellent briefcase whether you are carrying a laptop or not. If you have any questions about which one is best for you, give us a call at 866. 526. 2247 and we will be happy to help.
