This review is for the Dicota Slimcase Bounce model D30258.
If you travel out of the house and office with your laptop, you're going to need a carry case that provides protection and allows for a good amount of storage. I opted for the Dicota Slimcase Bounce after reading several positive reviews.
Aesthetically it is a smart product. You can get it in a couple of colours: Black/Blue or Grey/Pink. There may be other colours available too, but currently only those two options on Amazon. I opted for the one with the blue zips and lining as it looked better. In the case of the black/blue option, you also get pink zips so you have the nice option to change them if you wish.
Made for laptop sizes between 15 inches and 16.4 inches, the main selling point for this item is that it has memory foam padding that evenly absorbs any impact the case suffers, safely protecting your laptop inside. As I've mentioned on one of two other reviews, I am prone to dropping things, so this was an important plus point for me, and something I specifically looked out for before making my decision on what carry case to purchase.
The product measurements are Width 41 cm, Depth 30 cm, Height 5 cm. It has a weight of approximately 350 grams, so with the help of the comfortable handle, it's really just the weight of the laptop that you're carrying.
The case is made from polyester and has been made to be slim with no extra bulk like other cases. In the cushioned laptop compartment you have a velcro strap that secures your laptop in place so that it doesn't rattle around inside if yours is on the smaller size of the total capacity.
Also provided is a separate pocket on the front where you can store extra items like a mouse, memory sticks and/or paperwork. This is secured with velcro to keep your items inside.
There are a huge amount of laptop cases on the market but I'm very happy with my choice. I haven't had any problems whatsoever with it and it's very efficient for it's purpose. A very basic product really, but a necessity to have when travelling about with your second brain.
Currently the price on Amazon for the blue/black version is £16.72 and for the grey/pink version it is for some reason considerably cheaper at £10.69, so if your not bothered about the colour so much there's a big saving to be made there.
