Before going into detail about the superb qualities that the Solo Vintage Colombian Leather Laptop backpack has to offer, it would also be fair to point out some disadvantages.
First disadvantage is that it does not have a trolley sleeve. This means that if you use it as a carry-on luggage, you do not have the option of slipping it onto your trolley.
Another con is that it does not have a dedicated pocket for your tablet. However, the Solo Vintage Colombian Leather Laptop backpack has other compartments that can definitely double and act as your tablet pocket.
Last disadvantage that I also consider as a plus is its size. Some people might consider the Solo Vintage Colombian Leather Laptop backpack to be slightly smaller than the rest therefore having lesser carrying capacity. But its compact size and vintage look is the whole point of the pack. It is designed mostly as an everyday pack that you can bring on-the-go.
