Detailed Review of the Samsonite Pro DLX5 Laptop Briefcase

These briefcases are either held using the top handles or worn with a shoulder strap. Samsonite also create wheeled laptop bags which double-up as hand luggage. Examples are the excellent Biz-Lite cases.

You get a choice of three sizes with the DLX5:

  • 14 inches, 8.5 litres
  • 6 inches, 23 litres
  • 3 inches, 31 litres

There are two styles to choose from. Black is naturally the most popular. For something different that still works in the office, the Oxford blue version looks fantastic.

All versions of the Pro-DLX5 briefcase are built with ‘ballistic nylon’. This is tough and wipe clean. It is the same material used for many Samsonite soft-shell cases.

DLX 5 Pro Inside View

Outside Features and Security

You get a combination lock, which holds the two zip heads of the main pocket. This is great for deterring causal theft, with a TSA override for anyone travelling to the USA.

The shoulder strap is adjustable, with a slidable padded section. The top handles are also padded and comfortable.

You can access a big front pocket – as well as the two main pockets from the outside. The front pocket is not lockable. I was impressed by the size – this is more than just an afterthought for small items and documents.

On the back of the DLX5 laptop briefcase you will find a sleeve. This is to slide your bag over the telescoping pole of your hand luggage. For anyone that travels with business, this is a super-useful feature.

Inside the Pro DLX5 Laptop Briefcase: RFID Blocking and Quality Lining

The lining of the main pocket has a luxury feel. This is designed with hexagons and reminded me of those leather sofas in stately homes. This is a softer material than the ballistic nylon used for the exterior.

You instantly know that these laptop briefcases were designed for professionals. Small touches include a strap for the laptop, and compartments for the charger, cables and all those extras. There is plenty of alternative space for your documents – or maybe even your lunch!

RFID tracking makes sure your data is safe while you travel. You simply won’t get this extra on those tatty no-name laptop bags.

Feedback: What Did Users of the Samsonite Pro DLX 5 Laptop Briefcase Have to Say?

Glowing feedback for this range of laptop cases. Almost everyone was hugely positive, with ‘Samsonite Quality’ coming up over and over. RFID blocking was popular, though it is the build and the pockets which came in for the most praise. Some people mentioned specific laptops / mac books and how easily they fitted.

The negative reviews at the time of writing were foreign language.

Remember to check the latest feedback. While Samsonite rarely have any service issues and never fail on quality – you never know when this might change.

Wrapping Up: Is the Samsonite Pro-DLX5 Laptop Briefcase Any Good?

These laptop bags are the perfect antidote to the ‘no-name’ (and quickly disappearing) brands that litter the search results these days.

They look sharp and are built by a company that care about quality and utility.

It starts with the material, which is wipe-clean, smart, and flexible. Add the lock, multiple interconnected pockets and RFID blocking main pocket to this list. You get a choice of three sizes, and a luxury product which will certainly stand the test of time.
