I've been in search of good briefcase for a few years now. A few weeks ago I settled on the large Saddelback Briefcase (chestnut) and love it. I've done a lot of research and it seems there are mixed reviews on the quality of Saddleback products which is why I'm posting this. The only thing that I can figure out is that (most likely) the company went through a period of growth that caused their product quality to suffer. I can assure you this is no longer the case. This case is superb and is everything that Saddleback promises it will be. If you have any specific questions about the bag I'd be glad to answer them.
