Dads can be tricky to buy gifts for. Golf balls, socks, hampers and CDs are grand. But, for something functional; something they will actually use and something to last longer than a hamper of biltong; think Solo.
From New York to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban, thanks to Gammatek, Solo is the go-to brand for cases and bags.
For work and play, Solo bags are stylish, functional and packed with character. Produced with quality, durable materials, they have great features that will impress dad. These include internal organizers and compartments for organizing documents; internal pockets for keeping iPads and tablet devices safe and in place; side-zippered pockets for storing items that need to be accessed quickly, and padded backs and straps for comfort. And, there is a choice of sizes, shapes and colours to choose from.
