Harber Laptop Bag – Review

Those of us who frequently worked from different locations (pre covid and plan to get back into that routine as soon as the world opens up again), require a high-quality, durable and long-lasting laptop bag, that’ll meet all our professional and personal needs, well we have found the perfect laptop bag for you.

This one from Harber will certainly stand the test of time, boasting a timeless Premium Full-Grain Tanned Leather. This luxurious material ages with grace, adding character over time in the form of patina meaning there are no worries about the risk of scuffs or marks in fact they just add to the beauty of the bag. The aesthetic is simple, and the classic tan colour oozes class and finesse (it can also be purchased in black or a neutral deep brown shade). But the sleek and minimal exterior gives way to a detailed and multi-use interior.

Timeless Fashion That’s Fully Functional

The piece proves incredibly functional. 13” laptops can be carried inside the smaller version, while up to 16″ products will fit the larger bag (this includes portable computers from brands such as the MacBook Pro, Surface, ThinkPad and Dell XPS). The holdalls are also suitable for iPad Pro models plus their cases.

The internal pockets prove very handy too, with cord ties, key loops, pen and cardholders, as well as magnetic pouches for chargers, a slot for a smartphone, credit card and passport – the latter proving super convenient when needing easy access at the airport. A tardis-like interior ensures all belongings were comfortably stowed and protected from inevitable knocks when out and about. And a couple of removable pockets doubled as portable pouches.

Portable And Personal Design

Soft grab handles made it a dream to clutch throughout the day, especially during a long journey and while on multiple modes of transport. And it can be used with a pull up extendable handle, flight bag style, or with an over shoulder strap clipped on.

The chic bag can be teamed with matching Harber accessories. There’s a super comfy strap for the Apple Watch, a sling bag, a magnetic envelope sleeve for an iPad Pro and a leather desk mat – all of which come with the brand’s standard one year guarantee. Plus there’s the option to add engraved initials, messages or a significant date to any of the products.

British Heritage With European Styling

While this is a London based and family-run brand, Harber’s products are hand-crafted in Spain – my own briefcase arrived swiftly and still had the hypnotic aroma of fresh leather. Harber’s co-founders conceived the business idea during a kitchen table conversation in a small flat, back in 2012. But having no experience in leather goods design or running a startup, the small team had a steep learning curve. Yet with the desire to create honest, user-friendly, hard-wearing and top-quality solutions to laptop storage needs, the ideas began to germinate. Cue a lot of hard work and imagination… and Harber was born.

This laptop case has undoubtedly been thoughtfully designed, blending the best of British quality with Spanish craftsmanship. It’s perfect for those seeking a special gift that’ll be cherished by the recipient for life. Or as a smart investment for your own work-travel lifestyle.
