Booq’s elegant, ultra-functional brief offers superior protection and well thought-out organization

SIERRA MADRE, Calif. – The team at booq, designers of stylishly functional laptop bags, backpacks and carrying cases for creative professionals, releases their latest brief for business travelers, the Saddle Pro. Its expandable design makes it perfect for comfortable traveling, and its quick-access pockets keep important items such as passports and an iPad within easy reach. Saddle Pro is available now for $295 at

“We’ve taken our customers’ favorite features and feedback from the Boa saddle and Saddle carbon to create the Saddle Pro, which includes more volume and storage options,” said Kema Subsomboon, Lead Product Designer at booq. “Because booq fans often travel for business, we wanted to design an extremely functional yet lightweight bag that’s built to last, while evolving the traditional briefcase style into a modern design that feels both fresh and professional.”

The exterior is made from ballistic nylon with water-repellent coating. Featuring extremely durable materials, like oversized and rubberized genuine YKK-brand zippers, Saddle Pro offers plenty of storage and convenient, quick-access pockets to transport an iPad, several books or folders, a coffee mug and documents, even in its non-expanded state. Convenient zippered mesh side pockets are great for water bottles or an umbrella, and the bag’s open-top pockets provide quick access to a smartphone or other items travelers like to keep within easy reach without having to open a zipper.

Made from nylon with a silky smooth twill lining, the interior includes a dedicated laptop compartment with rubberized YKK® zipper, guaranteed to keep a 16.4″ laptop safe.  Increasing the bag via its expandable zipper adds another gallon in volume, enough for a change of clothes or another set of folders.

At only 3.8 pounds, travelers may hand-carry the bag by its two luxurious, genuine leather handles or carry it over the shoulder using the adjustable, nylon seatbelt shoulder strap with slip-resistant shoulder pad and custom, lightweight aluminum buckles. It’s also compatible with most luggage trolley handles, making it the ultimate travel companion.

The Saddle Pro is available now for $295 at throughout the U.S. See more of booq’s line of products here.
