Benchmarks

Specifications
The Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather I am looking at is the medium version that measures 14" W x 11" H x 9" D and sells for $519. The bag weighs 6.5 pounds and is made from real 100% leather full grain boot leather to last forever. There are no parts on the bag to break, it uses buckles and can be converted into a backpack. The bag has eight d-rings, a key strap, and lots more.

In Use
If you just finished reading the specs above for the simply named Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather you know this bag is expensive. What you might not yet realize is that the construction of this brief case is so robust and strong that you will probably never have to buy another brief case again.

Sure, you might scuff the leather a bit, but the bag has no parts that commonly break like snaps or zippers. Rather than using those breakage prone closures, the Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather uses buckles like a belt. That means that getting into the bag and closing it takes a bit longer than bags with zippers and snaps, buy you don’t have to work about the closures breaking.

The bag is heavy on its own at 6.5 pounds so when you fill it with stuff, you get a bit of a workout moving around. The main compartment is simply leather and you can cram your notebook into it. Most 15-inch notebooks and smaller will fit. It’s important to note that the inside of the Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather is not padded. You can fix that with a cheap laptop sleeve from any of a number of firms.

If you are prone to drop your bag, which could spell doom for your notebook so get a sleeve. In addition to the large main compartment, the bag has a secondary compartment with two pouches on the divider for gadgets and items like your cell phone or MP3 player. On the sides of the bag are two more compartments that could hold pens or other items. There is also a strap with a snap lock and a leather key ring for holding onto your keys.

My review bag is very well built and smells fantastic. I knew the bag was real leather before I opened the box up, I could smell it. You can get the Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather in carbon black, chestnut, and tobacco brown as well. If you need a larger bag for a bigger notebook, you can opt for the large version at $555 or the XL for $607. If you are the kind that likes to buy quality gear that will last when on the road, the Briefcase Dark Coffee Brown by Saddleback Leather is the bag for you.

Verdict

Conclusion
