    A few pages back I posted that I used this one: http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/d...7644-C64116-L2 -- however, I have just returned that one and am in the process of ordering this one made by Red Oxx: [​IMG]

    This will give me a briefcase/laptop case that will fit inside the Airboss when I can afford it for traveling. I am also waiting for delivery of a matching carry-on/EDC bag they call the Gator.

    I have an all leather salesman case. It has three compartments inside. It is 27 years old and still going strong. The leather is thick. I really haven't had anything but leather last.

    I have a couple of Brenthaven cases. The Xray friendly one is nice for traveling, makes airport security just a little easier if the TSA dudes will play along. Sometimes they make you take it out anyway.

    I do have serious lust for those saddleback leather cases, though.

    Been using a Tumi 26141 expandable briefcase for a couple years now. For a nylon bag its held up pretty well.

    I was about to order a Saddleback Large, but then handled my friend's and decided it was too heavy for how much I'd be carrying it. So I went with a Filson 257.

    PacSafe courier 100.

    Reasons to use:
    - Solid. However, had to replace one shoulder strap attachment (didn't let me down but cracked)
    - water resistant
    - 2 outside mesh pockets. Water bottle in one; umbrella and Silnylon folding day pack in the other.
    - Holds MacBook pro 15', bits and pieces, emerg supplies without too much fuss.
    Reasons to avoid:
    - Heavy
    - Not as much space as some soft briefcases.

    I have two bags that I use regularly but neither are briefcases. One is an army surplus leather mapcase, Czech I think, with a full flap. It has two full length compartments, one half-length and a pouch. It's mainly for holding papers, which is what it was made for, but the pouch (about 3x9 by about 3/4") will hold flashlight, pencils and little odds and ends.

    I use my other one when traveling if I'm flying. I don't remember where I got it but it has a full flap that has a zippered compartment on the front, two separate full-length compartments and some smaller slots and the like, one with a zipper. It's also of a size to carry papers and is also expandable. It is a shoulder bag but also has shoulder straps so it can be used as a rucksack. It's too small to carry anything heavy, which is a good thing, because it eliminates that temptation. It is made of nylon and is nearly always dirty. It's perfect as an under the seat bag and good for carrying maps, tickets, guide books as well as gloves and even a thin jacket or sweater.

    This will date me. I got a Brenthaven briefcase when the Apple PowerBook G4 came out. It has been an awesome briefcase and I still use it after all of these years. Still have the PowerBook too somewhere in my office closet.
