Brenthaven Metro review
When a notebook comes with a bundled carry case it’s usually a cheap affair that doesn’t offer much protection, and looks so obviously like a notebook case that it’s a target for thieves. But there are plenty of top-quality bags available that blend durability with everyday styling.
Staying with the business theme, the Brenthaven Metro is an understated briefcase-style bag designed to transport your laptop and accessories, but little else. Other than a slot for documents on the rear, the compartments are all found in the single bulge on the front. The main section holds laptops up to 15.4in and is extremely well padded, but you’ll struggle to fit anything extra in there. For a notebook alone it’s great, but we prefer the flexibility offered by some of the other shoulder bags on test.
