Quick Take Review: Solo New York Re:Focus Sleeve…Protection for Laptops and the Environment
Solo New York Re:Focus Laptop Sleeve, Grey
For those looking to protect their laptop and make a contribution to the reduction of plastic waste overwhelming the earth, the Re:Focus Sleeve offers an affordable, well-designed choice, and eco-friendly choice.
Solo New York RE:Focus Sleeve. Solo continues to ship nice looking bags and sleeves friendly to the environment. The $24.99 RE:Focus Sleeve fits in among those products. It offers basic features and a feel-good contribution by transforming recycled PET bottles into something useful.
The heather grey material sports a full-length front zippered pocket. The back hides a zippered slip pocket that extends the entire length of the sleeve.
The fully padded sleeve holds up to a 15.6-inch laptop in a snuggly black camo lining. It also comes in a 13-inch version.
Overall the thin, minimalist modern sleeve does its job well. It offers a subtle tactile feel that brings good grip to the experience.
There may be moments when a sleeve must dangle on the tips of one’s fingers when awkwardly opening a door. That requires some sort of handle, which, unfortunately, the Re:focus Sleeve does not offer. This sleeve plays for either an underarm tuck, a firm handhold, or as extra protection in a backpack or other bag. I have used it in all three configurations. I do have to be careful. There are times I need to awkwardly open a door, and I pine for a loop to dangle my laptop by.
For those looking to protect their laptop and contribute to reducing plastic waste, the Re:Focus Sleeve offers an affordable, eco-friendly, and well-designed choice.
