The briefcase is roomy, I will give it that, but like most things, the picture looks much better than the 3D version. Lots of pockets for storage, and an interior big enough for a larger laptop. Not what you'd want to take into a high powered business meeting. In suit terms, think Men's Wearhouse, NOT Gucci.
Previously I was using messenger type bags which I hated since I wasn't always in the mood to have to zip/buckle everything up when putting my laptop away in the bag. Messenger bags were always lacking convenient pockets also (like my last swiss army one, with the main pocket on the flap, which sucked since if I forgot to zip it up and then opened the case to get my laptop everything would fall out of the pocket.) This current bag you're looking at is the perfect bag: Has enough pockets for a bunch of different things, plenty of space without being too bulky, and looks good.
This was a birthday present for my husband. He's had the same briefcase for 5 years and he hates to give up anything until he absolutely has to. So I wanted to give him a good quality one that would last a while without being too expensive. This is just right. It has a lot of storage pockets. The leather doesn't look cheap-y. It's a little heavier-weight that I would like for myself, but he's fine with it. If you are looking for a high-end expensive looking case this wouldn't be for you. But for anyone else it's a good deal.

I'm more than happy with this product. It is very durable and protects whatever equipment I pack. More importantly, there is plenty of space for my laptop computer and its accessories, plus additional folders and documents. It's a challenge to not pack too much into it and keep the weight down. After all, I have to carry this beast!
I bought this case about a year ago. I use it exclusively for my older laptop. The leather may not be as supple as other cases but when you want protection for your computer, this case offers better protection than one with a softer feel. After a years worth of use, it shows no signs of wear and will outlive the laptop it contains.
HE LOVES IT! What more can I say. Bought it for his birthday and he was speechless. When you carry a briefcase for years, every day they get to be hoo-hum, not this one. Classy, rich looking, plenty of room, padded handles for comfort, quality materials great craftsmanship.
I was expecting full-grain leather, but instead got stiff faux leather. There may have been some real leather somewhere, but it didn't have the feel I was looking for. Also, as some reviewers have stated, the exterior pockets are somewhat small.
High quality and attractive product. The buyer should be aware that this briefcase is NOT expandable and won't hold a large volume. I'm accustomed to carrying several notebooks, a stack of files, a small camera, and noise-cancelling headphones. This briefcase is a bit tight for all that.

I bought this for my hubby who was dragging around a very old and badly worn briefcase. This was perfect, gorgeous leather and not too big. He loves it and I don't have to look at the ugly one anymore :)

The quality and looks are great for the money, but I believe it runs smaller than described. It was a HIUGE disappointment on Christmas morning toi find out that the lap top it was intended for did not fit. I will have to return it but hope to find something similar on overstock.com
