Great look and feel! -

This is the second Orvis briefcase I've owned and I'm very happy. Functionally, it has plenty of room and each compartment is easily accessible. The exterior tells my clients I'm a successful professional. Just looking at it makes me want to go to work!

This replaces a similar briefcase that I have used for many years, but was too small for lap-top plus incidentals such as notebooks, binders, etc. Plus a friend's bird-dog chewed the handles a bit. This case has the space for lap-top plus everything else I need to carry. All of the attachments for handles and shoulder strap and zippers are heavy-duty and designed for longevity.
The casual briefcase -
By: millhom from Houston
My husband is a scientist, so he isn't the starched collar and tie type. He needed a new briefcase but wanted one a little more casual than usual. This one fit the bill. Lots of pockets for cords and ear phones and a good padded section for his laptop. It is also very stylish and he is thrilled with the new "look"
A very good purchase -

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 -

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.
