tech folio brief

things fit into designated places, the grip is comfortable even when the bag is full and heavy, it’s compact enough to be a second carry-on piece while holding everything I expect it to, it appears to be well-made and sturdy.

I first bought the Racer X bag years ago and it's been my daily bag ever since and has held up perfectly. I wish they still made it and even better yet, made it with an additional spot for both macbook Pro and Ipad pro. Anyway, I have since ordered two other bags that I have returned both due them not being right for me. Can't give 5 stars as there are little things that just aren't as tight as the Racer X was for me.

I like having all of the zippere pockets. My one issue with my Air Porter briefcase, as much as i really like it, is the lack of zippered pockets so at some point I will likely switch to the new Tech Folio Brief.

You'll love the extra room in each of the two separate compartments of the Tech Folio Brief.  The generously-sized sections can fit almost everything you'll need on location to get your work done. 


The briefcase section carries your office gear and is deep enough to hold two laptops, a water bottle, several documents — even headphones. It zips open halfway, making it easy to insert and remove the contents. The double zipper pulls can be secured with a small lock if needed. When not full, the soft sides collapse for a compact look. 


The tech folio section has multiple pockets designed to securely store your various electronics and gadgets. It zips open flat to display your tech tool kit.  


When you're working in the field, it's critical to have your complete technology tool kit along.  The tech folio section of the Tech Folio Brief is big enough to keep your arsenal of cords, cables, adapters, etc. tidy and instantly visible. 


The key to staying organized is having everything in its place. Zippered mesh pockets store easy-to-lose gadgets and two soft, protective open pockets store bigger-sized items. You can quickly scan both sides of the folio to pick out the item you need,  and when you're ready to pack up, you can easily see if any piece of gear has been left out. 


Customers who participated in our Next Generation Gear Case Community Design helped develop a collection of products designed to hold tech gear. The Tech Pocket was designed for the Minimalists who needed an extra pocket to carry just a few items, the Tech Folio for the Gadgeteers who carried a bit more tech, and the Tech Folio Plus for Pros whose jobs required more tech gear. 


Each Tech Folio also had padded compartments to hold different sizes of laptops or tablets. When Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro launched, we designed the Tech Folio 16-inch


The Tech Folio Brief is a super-sized tech folio and a fully functional briefcase for professionals who carry a whole lot of gear to get their work done. 


Keep your waxed canvas Tech Folio Brief looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

Gary shows how you can re-wax your bag to keep it looking new, using the Vitesse Cycling Musette as an example. 



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Tech Folio Brief, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
