Although it might be one of the laziest named accessories from the guys at Hard Graft, the Surround Laptop Thing is undoubtedly amongst the most dapper and if you’ve been looking for a new home for your laptop when you’re on the go, this would definitely get our vote here at Coolector HQ. The Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing is priced at €300 and, as always, boasts first class craftsmanship and top notch materials.
Extremely stylish in its design and offering the sort of robust, versatile performance we’ve come to expect from the brand, the Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing (€300) is certainly one of the best looking homes for your laptop on the market. This cracking accessory is once again only being made in limited runs because Hard Graft are all about small batch production and prioritising quality over quantity so, if you like what you see, make sure you move fast to secure one of your own.
If you regularly find yourself working on the go and typically have a laptop in tow, it makes sense to push the boat out a little with your choice of computer carry and, quite frankly, they don’t come much better than the first class Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing which is a fine example of both form and function. This exemplary accessory is not a laptop sleeve as such, it is too slim for that, but Hard Graft don’t call it a folio either (as it’s not big enough). As such, they named it the ‘THING’. Put your laptop inside and it feels like a protective yet slim wedge that slides into your bag and keeps your laptop protected on the go.
Though it’s certainly not a cheap choice for your laptop porting requirements, the Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing is overflowing with quality so far as the materials and craftsmanship are concerned. This top class accessory is made from luxuriously soft wool on the interior and striking, dapper leather on the outside and these materials combine to make this one of the coolest looking and classiest accessories from Hard Graft to date.
This wool and leather accessory from Hard Graft is closed with a double snap leather folder flap that looks great and offers a highly functional performance to boot. It boasts a full width front zip pocket, leather edging and a smooth microsuede lining which will be instrumental in helping to shield your laptop from various bumps and scrapes whilst on the go. It has two different “faces” – one of fluffy grey Italian wool, and the other being a stylish, rich Italian leather. It provides a nice, snug fit for your MacBook and each one of these accessories has been made with a real attention to detail in Italy.
If, like us here at Coolector HQ, you regularly have a need to port your laptop about, it’s a good idea to get a carry case that will both look the part and provide a protective layer from the outside world that prevents unwanted scratches, scrapes and damage. The Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing is a fine example of the sort of craftsmanship quality we’ve come to expect from the brand and the aesthetics and materials are once again second to none.
Whilst the price tag of €300 is a touch prohibitive perhaps for this type of accessory, you get what you pay for in terms of the quality with the Hard Graft Surround Laptop Thing being made from a combination of locally sourced Italian and European materials. They have spent the decade tracking down the best suppliers, materials and manufacturers to ensure that they do justice to their designs and this is abundantly clear in products like this.
