    Great all around bag

    By Glovine

    from Minneapolis,MN

    Pros

    • High Quality
    • Sturdy

    Cons

    • Laptop Protection
    • Shoulder strap

    Best Uses

    • School
    • Work

    I cary my fruit brand 15 inch pro laptop in it, along with many other items. I slide my laptop into the larger side sleeve pocket and carry the charger, pens, cords, mouse(the USB kind), keyboard, sunglasses, you name it. I did put on a different shoulder strap with a wider strap, to not have the stock one dig in as much. I'd like it if there was some more protection for a laptop, but I'm just careful and nothing bad has happened. Great for everything I've done with it from flying to going to school.

    Good Bag, Good Quality

    By Greg

    from Boston, MA

    I've been looking for a canvas and leather bag for a while. The problem I have with most bags I've seen is the lack of zippers. I need to know my stuff isn't going to dump out if my bag tips over.

    This bag has plenty of room: 3 external zippered compartments, 1 open compartment on the back with a magnet closure, and the main compartment (which is zippered). There are a lot of panels and pockets and dividers inside so it's easy to stay organized.

    The leather is soft and the bag isn't very heavy. I like the brass hardware. I haven't owned the bag for long, but so far I'm happy with the quality.

    I have two minor complaints. I wish the bag was a tiny bit wider, like maybe an inch or two. And there is a leather Duluth patch sewn on to the front that is far too large.

    Great quality

    By amandamay83

    from South Dakota

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Bought this as a gift. It took me a LOT of searching to find a bag that (a) wasn't going to cost me an arm, leg, and my first born child, AND (b) had the qualities and attributes I knew the recipient wanted in a bag.

          Ultimately, what sold me on this bag was the back pocket. Ironically, however, the recipient's one concern about the bag is the same as someone else mentioned in their review: the magnet. As the previous reviewer said, that sucker is one strong magnet and it's up against the laptop sleeve in the interior of the bag. I assume that this must not actually be an issue, since no one has commented that it killed their lap top. But, all the same, I, too, feel it's worth mentioning.

          That said, over all the bag is a winner. Great quality. He travels a lot for business and said that, other than the magnet concern, he's quite pleased with the bag.

          I would not hesitate to purchase from Duluth Trading again and I would highly recommend both the company and this product to others.

            WOW is all I can say...

            By Sam

            from Southern VA

            Pros

            • Attention to detail
            • durability
            • Functionality
            • Quality
            • Size
            • Storage

            • Office
            • School

            I am very rough on the items I use, this bag will definitely hold up for years of use. The size is just right, it's not so big that its a chore to carry and it's not so small that you can't carry anything in it. For it's size you can carry A LOT of things in it. The storage compartments make sense.

            One thing that I did notice is that the photos make it appear very ridgid, but the canvas and the bag overall are quite plyable, making it easier to carry and use.

            The pockets in every area are functional. The velcro inside makes sense on the pockets. Very impressed with this bag especially for the price. I researched every bag from every company I could find and this was by far the best choice that I could make. First purchase from Duluth and not my last by far!!!

            I work in an office and use this bag to carry my files and laptop, along with other random office supplies. I also take a few classes at night. All I do is switch out my work laptop and files for my school notebook and books and I am on my way. I wouldn't want any other bag for such duties!

                It looks great. But it being canvas, there is no give. I wish it was a bit wider and the inside areas had a bit more room.

                from Sioux Falls, SD

                Verified Buyer

                Pros

                • Classy looking
                • Good size
                • Holds all my stuff
                • Plenty of space
                • Tons of pockets

                Cons

                  Best Uses

                    My old briefcase (from a competitor) was no longer available. It was literally in shreds and the handles falling off. We looked at many options, but knowing how well your Duluth packs hold up through several BWCA trips, I felt confident your briefcase would be perfect. My girlfriend surprised me and got it for me for Christmas. I set aside several hours to move over all my stuff from the old one into my new pristine case. Quite the thrill.
                    I am a contractor, so my briefcase gets in many interesting and less than clean places. But I can hold my head up again with this fine looking Duluth Briefcase. And I love the traditional cotton canvas with the leather trim and accents. I am sure it will last for a long time. Very pleased.

                    Pros

                    • Durable
                    • Heavy duty
                    • Scuff resistant
                    • Weather resistant

                    Cons

                      Best Uses

                      • Carries All Work Items
                      • Helps Organize
                      • Laptop carrier

                      Husband was hoping to see this product back at Duluth. He had one years ago and needed to finally retire it. He loved the durability, shape and size. He can toss his laptop in there along with other work related items and head out. It keeps items safe without a lot of fuss.

                            Nice but why use two nickel size rare earth magnets to hold the back compartment closed?? They are so strong they can easily hold a paperclip against the fabric, and that's right up against my laptop! I cut them out.
