    Details

    This tough briefcase from Filson carries everything you need for a day in the (business) world.

    The Filson Twill Original Briefcase invokes images of weather-worn fence posts and leather-clad cowboys loping over barren landscapes, but it also has the street smarts needed to make it today's hard-charging world. Not your typical briefcase, the rugged canvas fabric is treated with an oil finish to foil the attempts of light rain and snow that would otherwise turn your papers into a soggy mess. Two full-wide exterior pockets hold the newspaper or your electronic reading device as you race from the train to your office building.
    On the inside, two full-length open pockets leave ample room for a tablet, portfolio, and a few slim books. Separate little slots for business cards and your cell phone give you on-demand access, or the ability to turn it all off and put it away. The bridle leather strap and shoulder pad make slinging this bag over your shoulder simple. Take the strap off, and just carry your case by the bridle leather hand straps if you're worried about wrinkling your suit jacket.

    Where to put a 17" Macbook?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    In a bombproof bag (with a padded insert of course) is where. I'm going on year 6 with this bag having used it 2x a month to travel from the country to the city for business. It's at home in both places. For a 5' tall male, the size of this bag says you "mean business." No chintzy details here--form follows function with Filson. I don't see one thing on this bag that is superfluous. But, it is lacking a padded area for a laptop so I added a Filson tweed laptop sleeve. I was concerned my 17" macbook would not fit, but it does with the sleeve if not just a bit tight. Zippers are durable brass but large enough not to snag when pulling shut. I wear it across the body as the strap pad does tend to slide off the shoulder...no worry there is plenty of strap to fit across the husky-ish frame. So much room and pockets that I actually lose things sometimes in the bag. Nevertheless, I wanted a bag that would age as well or better than me and this bag is it.

    Where to put a 17" Macbook?

    Perfect briefcase, gets better with age

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is the perfect modern suitcase for your laptop and a few other office items. I use this every day for work. The stitching and leather indicate that a lot of care was put into building the bag. I have no doubt that it will last me many years.

    It only gets better with time. I must admit, I was a bit worried that it was too small for me at first. But after a few weeks the bag started to loosen up and I could fit more in it with greater ease. I've had it for about 4 weeks now and it only seems to be getting better. I went with the dark tan. I was worried it would be too light for my taste, but glad I went this route. The fabric is slightly darker in person than any pictures on the internet let on. If I'd gone with the brown, my first choice, it would have been too dark.

    Why use anything else?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you're in the market for a computer bag, do yourself a favor and stop looking... You already found the perfect bag! I used to have the larger version of this and sold it to get this one. It was too big for my needs. This, however, is perfect! It's a perfect size for a thin computer and several notepads/books. I actually keep two computers in here at times (my work computer and a school/personal computer). The bag is excellent quality (to be expected from Filson) and will last for years to come. I'm honestly trying hard to think of a negative but can't.

    Southern Must Have

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag was purchased for my sister who couldn't help herself. She's wanted it for quite awhile now and us little sisters must please our big sisters to keep world peace. Here is some feedback from her.



    "If your like me you first heard about Filson through your brother who won't stop telling you how cool they we're and how it was a must have. Apparently everyone's doing it. Okay, maybe not, but they should be. My first Filson purchase was the 'padded computer bag' for my 6'3" husband. Which he now considers a man purse because I don't see a day go by without him carrying it. BUT if you're a 5'9" chick and dying to get a good bag to carry to work you need to go with the 'original briefcase'. My personal opinion is that most of the other bags are too big for girls smaller than me to carry, mainly due to why we all like it in the first place... because of the quality and look of the bag. that heavy industrial and heritage style. Researching the bags you might want you can find plenty of photos but nothing like what I have posted. Detailed and everyday shots of what you're really going to see. Everyday full bag shots which includes: Apple iPad Pro, 15 inch Dell Laptop, Apple Pen, business cards, work badge, keys, and Tory Burch iPhone wallet (no show-fits inside pocket). One of my favorite features is the leather strap, which comes with this particular bag, because it's engraved!!! #southernmusthave

    A Filson store opened up in Dallas and they engrave your bags for free!!! Since I have purchased merchandise from there before, I had the Filson tags on my bag and Backcountry is an authorized retailer, they had no problem with engraving the strap. I strongly recommend the hats and new t-shirts as well! Enjoy!"

    Southern Must Have

    Beautiful design, but a little large

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I'm 5'3" and this bag fits a little big around my frame. The color is gorgeous, but it doesn't look that great on me because of the size. It's the perfect bag for people who need a lot of space. I was worried about not being able to fit my 13" macbook, but there is plenty of room for it. Do consider looking into the padded filson briefcase if you're wanting some cushion.

    Classic Filson

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've wanted one of these for what seems like ever and now that I have one I'm not disappointed. Made of a heavy cotton with leather handle, straps and trim, durability doesn't seem to be an issue. Travels well. Two sleeves surrounding the main compartment which is also thoughtfully laid out (read: holds the essentials including a 13" Macbook Air). The Navy looks great!

    Thoughtful Design & Quality Construction

      I continue to be impressed by the quality of Filson's products. Like their other products I've seen, it's very well and thoughtfully constructed of quality materials. I trust it will last me to a long time. On top of that, it looks great and has a great range of pockets. My 15" MacBook Pro doesn't fit in the two side pockets but just about anything small should. Hah, that probably means it's just time to get a MacBook air. I bought mine in Tan.

      My go to briefcase

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is classic Filson.. get it in tan and be the talk of the office. Your manager will take notice and recommend you for a promotion. Plain and simple. Fits 17" laptop snugly, tablet, work folders will still enough room for a water bottle and all of your other every day carries. Key clip inside the front flap for security. This only get's better with age.

      The last brief you'll ever buy?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the absolute last briefcase you'll ever buy. I've been using this bag for about a year now, and since I started my 'filson radar' is up. I've seen this bag at airports, in all my travels, and have seen these as old as 20 years. They age incredibly well, stand the test of time, and filson will repair or replace your bag if anything ever does happen to it. Lifetime warranty!!
