Today, Nock Co. launched a Kickstarter campaign for their Lanier Briefcase.

The Lanier is a slim briefcase designed to hold a tablet or 13-inch laptop in addition to an A4 notebook in the main compartment. Outside the main compartment is a zippered pocket that includes a separate A5 pouch that can fit comfortably in the front pocket or used on it's own for an even slimmer carry. The inside of the A5 pouch contains two built-in pockets for additional organization.

The briefcase and pouch are made from durable water repellant coated 1000D Cordura with 400D pack cloth lining the interior and 1/8-inch mildew-resistant foam in between. The bag has two 1-inch mil-spec nylon handles up top that are reinforced with 1" bar-tack stiching.

I carry several Nock Co. cases on a daily basis and find them to be well built and smartly designed. The Lanier looks to be the next high-quality case in their line. I highly recommend Nock Co. products.

The Lanier is available for $80 (limited to 400 early-bird pledges) or $88 on Kickstarter plus $10 shipping within the US. You can back the Lanier on Kickstarter now until October 20th at 8:30AM CDT.
