The SOLO Classic Collection Expandable attaché is an entry level attaché case style briefcase that is affordable and functional, albeit with some caveats. At such a competitive price for professional looking attaché, we were intrigued to find out if this is a possible alternative to pricier attache briefcases.
We are quite impressed at the professional exterior of the briefcase considering the low price tag. Although it is fake leather, from a distance it could easily mistaken for something pricier. Before opening the briefcase we tried out the two combination locks, these feel flimsy and imprecise. Inside the briefcase we immediately notice the hinges are not too smooth and don’t lock the briefcase in an open position well. After putting some weight in the top compartment, The look and layout of the interior is clean and plain but functional.
For an medium sized attaché, this briefcase is significantly lighter than what we are used to, making it easy to carry. We noticed that the construction of handle grip to the briefcase does not look like it can hold a lot of weight, but from our brief period of use of one to two weeks, did not give out out us on heavier loads.
List Price: $24.27
We did manage to fit standard 14″ work laptop inside, but the clearly the padding and construction of the attaché was not meant to replace a laptop bag. The weight made the attaché uncomfortably heavy, which was a definite concern due to our suspicion of a suspect handle. The expandable function is good functionality, but the extra bulk caused some imbalance and added to our weight reliability concerns.
This attaché briefcase is a decent purchase if your expectations are in line with the price (view current prices on Amazon). Judging by the construction and overall feel of the briefcase, we expect to see internal and external issues within a year of regular use. Further research and surveys indicated that this briefcase is largely hit or miss in quality and things going wrong. Luckily if you buy from Amazon the return policy makes this a relatively safe purchase to see if this style of briefcase is really for you. If you are looking for something more reliable, take a look at our preferred alternative.
