A very good purchase -
By: JMV1971 from Spain
Saw this briefcase on a trip to NY but could not buy it. Back from that trip I could not find something simmilar so just bought it through Orvis web site.
shoddy workmanship -
By: unhappy410 from Bethesda, MD
A brand new version of a prior model "battenkill" briefcase was a gift. On the first day, the leather that held the rings for the strap ripped off completely. I called the store and the representative told me they would replace or even upgrade the bag if I brought it in. I went to the store and they switched up that oral warranty, telling me my bag was "too old" (even though it was brand new) and that they wouldn't replace it for a substantially similar Battenkill model. They very easily could have done so. Orvis banks on "workmanship" and "quality" of their luggage and leather goods, but won't back it up.
Another Winner from Orvis -

I have purchased other Battenkill items in the past and they have all been good for me or the folks I have given them to. Such is the case here. This briefcase is a gift to a 30 year old engineer who is delighted with it. Great for office materials and also a quick clothing change in a pinch. Almost indestructible.
Best bag I've ever owned... -

This bag is everything that I hoped it would be...slightly larger than I expected, but that is not a problem... Empty your pockets...this bag will hold everything you need !
Great business briefcase -
By: ajajajaja from Chevy Chase, MD
Thoughtfully designed, elegant look, rugged construction.
I like the way it stays standing up when you put iut down instead of falling over. It's why i bought it.
Great brief case -
I thoroughly enjoy my brief case ...I would add a strap or other devise so that it can be attached to the roller bag

I'm a Police Lieutentant, and a 25+ year fan of Orvis products. I love this briefcase. I like that I can slig the strap over the passenger seat and have easy access to the compartments. There is a zippered exterior pocket with a neoprene sleeve, perect for my iPad. The leather key leash, is so handy! The front side compartment features three small pouches, great for storing a smartphone, glasses, sunglasses, etc. keeping them easily accessable. There is also a interior zippered folder pocket and a laptop or folder sleeve. The rear compartment has two interior folder sleeves. A hearty shoulder strap. Last, the obvious, great Orvis quality!
Great Work Bag -
By: AGSNJ from NJ
I search for months to replace my old work bag. This bag fit my size needs and had all the compartments I was looking for. My only negative comment about the bag is that Orvis changed the design from the one my friend has to eliminate the pen loops. I use the cell phone pocket for pens, but they are not held there securely and sometimes fall out. Other than this minor issue, its a sturdy, great looking bag that is very functional.
