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
Great Briefcase -
By: Jackgill from NJ
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.
Great Customer Service -
By: fchambersiii from Minneapolis MN
Sold out on website with an expected delivery date of Feb 2014. I called customer service and they found the bag in one of the stores. They were very helpful and provided great customer service. The bag showed up with no issues a couple of days later.
Compliments and style -
By: cdnrunner4ever from Halifax, NS, Canada
This case is the perfect compliment to any business trip. Lots of space and great styling that goes so well with the other pieces of the Battenkill line that I have. In airports and hotels I get lots of compliments and questions about this great case!!!
Best gift for new job! -
By: from Los Angeles, CA
I surprised my boyfriend with this briefcase as an early birthday gift to take to work at his first day at his new job. He was absolutely thrilled and speechless. The quality of this product is superb and it will serve him well for many years to come.
Battenkill Briefcase -
Wow what a bag. This was the second briefcase I bought after I started workingin...1991. Now 22 years later it is still my daily briefcase. It has been back for a about three wear related repairs over the probably over 5,000 days of use. I can't part with my old friend. I did buy a new Bullhide leather briefcase for the more formal settings but I still transfer back to my Battenkill for everyday. / Also, I decided to stick with this bag when, as a young exec, the president of our company said "Oh, Orvis." Nice.
Fair Purchase -
By: pdlhappy from fredericksburg, va
This briefcase/satchel has wonderful storage and extremely convenient design. My only draw back is the size. I wish the Battenkill was available one size down, rather large to carry a 13" MACBOOK PRO and iPad. I can assure you I will not be returning it and look forward to many years of use.
Great Bag; Needs Sleeve for Carryon Handle -
I've had mine for over 5 years and it has held up well, although it is beginning to show some wear. I'm surprised that the bag hasn't been updated to include a sleeve to slip over the handle on the wheeled Battenkill luggage. I love my wheeled carryon, but using this bag with it is a little awkward given the lack of a sleeve to hold it against the handle when wheeling the case.
