I wanted something simple and unflashy to take to campus everyday that also had a more professional tone to it. (I'm an MFA writing student.) This fits the bill perfectly. The canvas and leather are pretty stiff at first but after a few weeks of use it's breaking in pretty nicely. I can't wait to see what it'll be like in a year. If you need to carry a lot of stuff, you might want to check out their other options, but the interior is surprisingly roomy. I've shoved way more stuff in there than I thought I could--vertically and horizontally. Also a plus: it's water resistant. Unles you get caught in a huge downpour, your items are going to be safe. I know some of the reviews have stated that the strap broke pretty early early in the life of the bag, but I never use it. It's probably worth noting though that it's made in the USA of imported materials, with all the attendant implications. (I think it's a very well-made briefcase, and tons of companies do this.)

Have been using the bag for six months now and the material is just beginning to wear in and feel great. I expect it's only going to look and feel better a few years down the line. Not much space inside if you carry a lot, but perfect for folks like me who carry a laptop, some books and paperwork, lunch and a water bottle. Perfect bag for the minimalist who isn't impressed with a dozen pouches and useless small compartments all over their bag, but is impressed with craftsmanship and attention to quality.

Purchased this bag for my husband for Christmas. As an academic, he didn't want a formal, leather briefcase, and wanted something that would hang comfortable on his shoulder. He loves this bag. It seems very sturdy and looks like it will wear extremely well. Holds a ton -- he doesn't carry a laptop, but I suspect a 15" in a sleeve would fit easily. Very handsome and upscale-looking, if that's important to you. Highly recommend.

I'd also recommend: Fossil, Michael Kors, Coach, J.Peterman

Great style, perfect until the strap tore from the bag only 2 days after receiving the item! What a disappointment, I expect more from Filson! Had to return.
