I bought this bag a couple of months ago and I have to say that it is great. The more I scratch and scuff it, the better it looks. The leather is not only great looking -- it is very, very strong. I carry my ginormous, 1,000 pound, circa 1922 work laptop (the exaggerations are disturbingly slight unfortunately for me) and I do not for a second worry that a strap will give, the leather will tear, or that a buckle will fail. My sense is that if it fits in the bag, then the bag will hold it -- and that my shoulder or back will give long before the bag will. I expect to be using this bag for many years to come.
Side note -- I liked the bag so much that I replaced my aging and dilapidated Coach wallet with a Saddleback wallet (bought directly from Saddleback this time around). It's probably obvious by now that I am very, very, very happy with their products. If you've got the dough, then go ahead and let her rip -- I don't think you'll regret it.

Terrific Briefcase bag!
By Erin Wolff
I have a Saddleback Leather Classic briefcase and love it, but it a bit heavy for everyday use. I would tend to leave too much in the bag. I've used my new Thin Front Pocket Briefcase bag for a couple of months and love the better weight. I can put everything that I would need for everyday use. Because of the dimensions, I expected that I could not use it for my 15 inch Macbook Pro. That would be the case if the bag was already full, but I can slide the laptop and plenty of additional paperwork into the bag. I also like the front pockets where I can strap-in items so that they don't fall out. That was another complaint of the Classic briefcase; the pockets inside do not close, so things would always fall out into the main compartments. Maybe Saddleback could engineer a latch or buckle for inside pockets.
Overall very happy with this briefcase and plan to get the Thin Briefcase for my brother at graduation (he picked it over the front pocket designs).

It will easily last my lifetime and maybe another with routine care
By John P Fitzgibbons
Very impressed with the quality of this bag. It will easily last my lifetime and maybe another with routine care. It is expensive but I believe in buying quality things that will last and look good. I've received many compliments on this bag from friends, colleagues and strangers. I strongly believe that I made the right purchase choice with this.
