Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

The Eclipse from Brenthaven is a very basic laptop sleeve with a price tag to match.

The Eclipse from Brenthaven is a very basic laptop sleeve with a price tag to match.

Priced from £24 to £29, the Eclipse is a zip up case made from rugged ballistic nylon and comes in three sizes suitable for laptops ranging from 13 to 17in.

However the Eclipse, which features a removable protective insert covered with suede-effect material and a strip of foam padding to line the bottom of the bag, isn't the sturdiest of laptop cases.

The Eclipse comes in three colours; pink, avocado green and black and features one external compartment that doesn't come with some description of fastening. The bag also includes a small but slightly uncomfortable handle. With no shoulder strap, the most comfortable way to use an Eclipse is to slide it under your arm.
