This briefcase appears very attractive and manageable in the picture but in actuality is quite large and bulky. It has a lock on the clasp and a key but the key would not lock or unlock the clasp. With the briefcase unlocked it opened easily when anything bumped it and we had the experience of things falling out while going through security at the airport. This was a gift for my husband after 50 years in the ministry and I was quite disappointed as was he. Because of a trip we were on and other unseen incidents it was just shy of 2 months before I could look into a refund and found that shipping would be on my own and that I would be given the amount that they would refund me after it was received back at their factory. I'm sad this was not a more satisfactory experience and will shop where I can see the product in person the next time.
