great briefcase

By Ken

About Me Classic Dresser

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Adequate Capacity
  • Quality Construction
  • Well Organized Inside
  • Well padded computer area

Cons

  • Heavy
  • Poor water bottle holder

Best Uses

  • Important Documents
  • Staying Organized

Comments about Duluth Trading The Fully-Evolved Briefcase:

I use this case for my work as a physician. I use it for house calls on my hospice patients, and to carry various medical files and documents. It protects my laptop quite well, while keeping it easily accessible, and also carries my medical gear. The organized storage area in its padded outside pocket is very handy.

The main drawback I see is that the water bottle holder is not as drawn or photographed - it is much smaller, and will not hold a standard size water bottle. That's the only reason it gets a 4 rather than a 5 star rating. To Duluth's credit, they sent me, at no charge, a replacement briefcase, but its water bottle holder is also too small.

      Comments about Duluth Trading The Fully-Evolved Briefcase:

      The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because my contractor-husband has yet to road test it. We are thrilled with the design; rugged yet stylish, a laptop sleeve included, and places for all the stuff he has to schlep between his truck, job site, & home (barn) office. Love that you are giving free shipping on our next order for writing a review I was going to do anyway~ I depend on "real life" product reviews for my online purchases if I am not familiar with the product. Great value when compared to other laptop cases.

        Industrial-Grade Baggage

        By jrhmobile

        from Portland, ME

        About Me Casual Dresser

        Pros

        • Adequate Capacity
        • Comfortable in the hand
        • Protects Computer Gear
        • Quality Construction
        • Takes Abuse
        • Usable over the shoulder
        • Well Organized Inside

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Carrying Computer Gear
          • Staying Organized
          • Traveling

          Comments about Duluth Trading The Fully-Evolved Briefcase:

          I've been traveling with this beast for five years now, stuffing it with one and sometimes two laptops and associated gear, papers, pens, technical manuals and travel paraphernalia, a spare set of socks and a change of underwear -- unexpected layovers suck! I work as an independent computer consultant, and have to confess that I beat this bag up on a daily basis.

          Other than a little fading, it's as good as new even though I'm constantly pulling stuff out of it at client offices, TSA checkpoints and hotel rooms. It fits great under a commuter airline seat. And I can rest my feet on it, chuck it into the back of an airport van or set it on its side to stuff it into the next seat without worrying about it or anything in it. The bag handle is extremely comfortable -- even when I've overpacked it -- and the clip-on shoulder strap is fairly comfortable on the rare occasions where I use it because I'm juggling other bags. In short, I've abused it mercilessly and it wears like iron.

          This bag isn't a fashion statement, but it's a heck of a sturdy, useful piece of baggage. I recommend it highly.

            If you use this everyday as your briefcase, the edges start to show wear and the black color starts to fade on the edges. Less than 2 years after I purchased it, it tore on one of the major seams. Would not recommend for everyday use.

              As a pilot, I have to carry around a lot of stuff when I travel. I have had many other "flight bags" over the years but this seems to work the best. It qualifies as a brief case with all airlines, so I can bring my suitcase and this and avoid waiting for the baggage carousal.
              The padded laptop compartment makes traveling with the computer easy!
