How much is it?
It retails for AUD 129.95. Whenever I travel, I’ve always had to carry multiple items just for my gadgets, such as a charger, a mousepad, and a sleeve for my laptop. This is precisely where the JOURNEY NEXA innovation kicks in.
How is it?
The JOURNEY NEXA laptop sleeve is a 4-in-1 laptop sleeve that can:
– Charge your devices
– Protect your laptop
– Double as your mouse pad
– Double as your desk pad
Please note that this JOURNEY NEXA laptop sleeve does not have a built-in battery. It can be powered either by a USB-C wall charger, power bank, or a suitable USB-C port on the laptop itself.
I’ve tested this sleeve with my DELL XPS 13 and Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Plus, both of which are 13 inches in size. Although the Surface is slightly thinner and lighter, both devices fit perfectly into the sleeve.
I fully appreciate the merit of this JOURNEY NEXA laptop sleeve, as it addresses a perennial problem for laptop owners. Whenever I am outside and need to bring my laptop, I am always searching for a smooth surface that acts as a mousepad.
With this JOURNEY NEXA sleeve, not only does it protect my laptop, but it also serves as a wireless charging pad for my phone and a convenient mousepad. In fact, with this sleeve, there’s no need to carry a laptop bag anymore. However, you’ll still need to store your laptop charger somewhere. Otherwise, when your laptop is fully charged, this JOURNEY NEXA sleeve will be perfect on-the-go.
How’s the build quality?
The JOURNEY NEXA Laptop Sleeve is well-built. Both the leather and the canvas finish are elegantly crafted, giving it a luxurious feel. It certainly surpasses my Surface Pro sleeve in terms of style and usability. I believe this JOURNEY NEXA sleeve will last for a long time.

Yes, absolutely. I would wholeheartedly recommend this sleeve, especially if you frequently carry a laptop and are often on-the-go. The JOURNEY NEXA laptop sleeve helps reduce the number of items you need to carry, which is essential for saving weight during travels.
