This bag is a lot lighter than the bag I had. I wasn't sure if everything I carry with my laptop would fit in the bag. I carry my laptop, iPad, chargers for both, workpapers, keypad, business cards, etc. Everything fits nicely. The bag is at least 3 lbs less than the bag I was carrying.
I ordered from Overstock on 7/13 and the item was on my doorstep on 7/ 16. This briefcase arrived free of defects in appearance. The color was stunning in person and the detail of the stitching looks quite expensive. I am a bag collector so it's very important for me to carry a nice bag. The leather is very stiff as stated in other reviews and the bag is quite heavy even without anything in it. The shoulder strap does help with the heaviness because it is shock absorbent. I am plus sized and I don't necessarily see petite women carrying this bag on a regular basis with a laptop inside. But, the rolling feature can be utilized if this is a concern. The bag does have a laptop case built inside for extra protection which I may not use. There are two compartmenrs on the inside with a middle compartment with a zipper
The bag doesn't hold a lot of paperwork but it's a fair exchange for such an awesone bag. This briefcase does command attention. I am proud to take it anywhere but it may be too fancy for my casual work environment. I may get teased for having such an expensive looking briefcase, but who cares. I think the lock on the front of this case looks like it could break, I do have concerns about that bc one reviewer said customer service for Mcklein is rude. I will update this post if the lock breaks. I really like this bag so far and I'm proud to carry it despite any concerns I've mentioned.
Just received the briefcase, so I can't speak to its durability. I will say, however, that after doing a lot of shopping for a briefcase, and comparing the quality of many manufacturers, this briefcase represents the best bang for the buck!
Unlike some of the McKlein cases that I saw in person at a local store, the leather of this briefcase is very supple and soft, not "plasticy."
It appears to be very well made, and the photo was very accurate. Basically I received a briefcase exactly like the case pictured.
I think the briefcase is very comparable to those that are priced at $250-300. I'm very pleased.
I think this is a great bag. It holds more stuff than my swiss gear book bag, and looks and smells very professional. It even works bungied to my motorcycle. Zippers are easy to use, leather is classy, and inside is leather as well. Can hold a laptop no problem.
I ordered the black because the red was not available. The leather is beautiful. Polished but not brassy. What surprised me was the white stitching. It gives the briefcase a modern and youthful style. Very stylish yet the design is well thought out. I fly everyweek. I was anxious to see if it indeed can be rolled down the eisle and it does fit. The briefcase can be unzipped from the frame to be carried. There are times when I want to be holding a briefcase. Wheeling a briefcase works in an airport but not always in a conference room. The interior is lined with a high quality fabric. There are just enough pockets and sleeves. There are not so many that I jam it full with personal items. I could not be happier. Exceptional purchase!!!
Purchased as gift for college age son. It looks sturdy enough and the stiff leather seems to be of a decent quality . Time will tell if it will be able to hold up. The leather strap attachment is on the top of the case rather than the side, so not sure if this will cause breakage down the road, but my son did seem pleased with the case. It definately is roomy..
This is a beautiful leather brief case but it is a little tight. You cannot put too much in it. I'm an insurance agent and carry many brochures and booklets and it is a little small. I have made it work and like it much.
I purchased this to save my back and not have to carry something clunky or risk damaging my computer. The bag is very well laid out and while I had to initially kind of wrestle with it to open it up since it was a little stiff, it is easy to organize and the computer section is well padded and logically located.
This laptop case is the perfect brief case for anyone who has a larger laptop. It is room to spare and I absolutely love it. The only downside is that with this much room, it can get a little heavy but if you want something to carry all your business gadgets and are willing to compromise on weight, this is the perfect case. Very well made.
I researched and shopped exhaustedly for a laptop case to fit my 17" HP Pavillion Laptop,, I learned that this was not going to be an easy feat as there were not too many bags that would end up as a perfect fit per my research. This bag exceeded my expectacion. It is a perfect fit; excellent quality, and plenty of storage for my peripherals. It even detaches from the wheeled cart to become a briefcase. I could have saved myself much time by checking Overstock first. They truly have the best price for the money.
The rolling cart, the extending handle, and the bag itself are excellent. I have used this bag everyday of the school year. It works as well today, as the first time I filled it up. However, a few of the zipper grab tabs have come off. They appear to be made of plastic instead of metal and break easily. The zippers still work fine but require fingering the mechanism since there isn't anything to grab to open/close them.
I got this as a gift for my boyfriend and he LOVES it. Great quality. I've seen equally nice laptop cases going for $300-400. Wish it had a little bit more padding for the laptop. If you need a case that will protect it from lots of bumps and tumbles this isn't the case for you. It is great for taking a laptop to and from work and with you on a plane, etc.Keely
I have been using this briefcase for a few weeks now. I am very pleased with it's functionality and looks. It looks very professional, latches securely, and sits upright with easy access when open.I have seen comparable briefcases that sell for twice the price. Don't think I would pay $400 for this or any other briefcase, but I am very please with this one for $***. I definitely recommend this briefcase for this price.
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.
Had searched for ages to find a laptop bag that was: a/ big enough for my laptop and b/ in a colour other than borning black! Other bag companies please note; women use laptops too!!! This is a fabulous green and when the leather softens will accommodate my laptop with ease ( a bit tight at the moment). The handle is also very long so I do not need to stoop to pull the trolley along and I am very impressed with how it shuts down - it does not stick out at all. Would recomend this as the bag makes a useful weekend bag too.
I have searched for an affordable briefcase for several years. I compared this case when I received it to much more expensive one owned by a friend and found this case to be superior in quality materials, workmanship, and finish. It suits my needs perfectly. I love it!
The bag is as lovely as the picture and very well made. I have very stringent requirements for a bag--interior sleeves for pens and cell phone, a separate section for a wallet (in this bag, there is a a divided section plus a flat, zippered pocket), a large interior space for files and laptop, and, for security reasons, the whole thing needs to zips shut. And a handle drop of at least 11 inches (this one is 11.75) so you can get the darn thing on your shoulder, even with a coat, with one hand. (What is it with all these large bags and totes that have such short, dysfunctional handle drops?) Bingo with this bag. The only box this one didn't tick is exterior pockets for either a coffee/water bottle and glasses. But that would have definitely ruined the look of the design, and it's definitely an attractive looking bag. Would definitely purchase again, even without the exterior pockets. Some notes: (1) This is a structured bag, and that took a small amount of time to get used to (I was used to more flexibility and feeling free to toss a bag onto the passenger seat of my car). (2) the length of the interior space is a good 16 inches, and so it can squeeze in a laptop up to that dimension.
We searched everywhere for an overnighter that would hold a computer laptop and business materials. With an extra Overstock coupon, we were able to purchase this for $@#$.() which was the best price we could find for this exact overnighter. It seems to have all the compartments needed for a few clothes and computer with all of its equipment for a 1-2 day business trip.
