It may not be cheap, but the 0 Damen case, which has detachable wheels, oozes retro style. Perfect for pulling around the airport, it actually gives you enough room for not just a 17-inch laptop and associated cables and accessories, but also a tablet and a few other odds and ends.
It seems a shame to cover up its snazzy looks, but should the weather take a turn for the worse, a handy weather-proof cover clips onto the roller handle to keep the whole works dry. If brown leather isn’t your thing, a black leather version is available, as well as a slightly cheaper ($216, when we wrote this) black nylon model. McKlein’s lifetime warranty is a valuable addition to keep in mind.
