Thule Gauntlet Macbook Attaché

Sometimes, it’s best not to overcomplicate things. This sleek laptop bag does what it says on the box: the padded interior and hard exterior of this case ensure that your laptop and charger are always safe. The difference with this bag, however, is the moulded attaché with rugged protection and in-case usability, which allows you to work directly out of the case.
