      I have owned this briefcase for ten years. I carry it with me everyday all over the hospital. It gets thrown in my car, on floors, in lockers. It is still in great shape. It looks like the day I received it. Lots of pockets allows for great organization. Expands to hold a lot of stuff. Jokingly referred to by family as my "Mary Poppins bag" because of the vast amounts of stuff I can carry. If it was ever stolen or lost, I would purchase a replacement IMMEDIATELY!

      Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Leather Brief:

      I had never like Tumi Laptop Brief before as I felt it look too squarish and rugged. But it had changed my preception when I pick up the bag in the Tumi store. The feel of the quality leather and comfort of the strip had made me bought the bag for a try.
      I had been using it for more than 3 months now, with all the daily commuting and bi-weekly traveling, my Tumi bag still stay in shape.
      I am happy that I made the right choice and now I started to look at other Tumi products.

        Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Leather Brief:

        I recently purchased my second expandable leather brief from Tumi. My first case has lasted fifteen years and is still in reasonably good shape. It's starting to show its age and I thought it time to replace it with one that looks less worn and a bit more professional. However, even at 15 years it will still be great to use for personal travel, etc. I'm thankful the style hasn't changed much over the years because I have found this case to be extremely versatile and professional. As a CPA I am routinely out and about visiting clients etc. I virtually carry my entire office (including my laptop, files, etc.)in the case. The various pockets and features keep everything organized and easy to find. I rarely go anyplace without it. Although expensive, the quality is exceptional, making it well worth the price.

        Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Leather Brief:

        This is a great bag - I've had one for years. It's just amazing. Unfortunately for me the current edition is one inch less wide than prior. That means it cannot accomodate my usual configuration these days: lawyers and others who carry legal-sized Redweld-style folders are going to miss that extra inch. And so with regret I will be returning my new one and will try to get a few more years out of my old one. In that connection, I highly recommend the new pivoting, nylon-leather combo strap, which I got in a Tumi store for $35. It's maybe slightly less elegant than the old padded leather was when new, but it basically eliminates shoulder pinch and will certainly extend the life of my old bag.

          I've had mine for about eight years and agree with all the nice things folks say.

          I don't know what happened to Gary, but the padding on my strap wore down so I went into the store and bought a new strap for $35. It's not the all-leather one the bag used to have but the awesome pivoting nylon-leather-padding combo of the new one. I'm not sure why Gary had a problem.

          Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Leather Brief:

          Just bought my third version. What wears out? The leather cording on the bottom eventually gives out from contact with the floor/ground. The newest version is a bit cheapo. What used to be an all leather strap is now nylon with a leather shoulder pad. They have cut out some of the pockets as well (used to have a completely zippered pocket on the backside). Also, dropped the nifty pen holders in the front compartment. If you've had one of these for as many years as I have (1993), you notice the details. Having said all that, this is my THIRD bag and I consider it an essential travel companion. Can't imagine not having one!

              After wanting this briefcase for awhile, I received it for Christmas and I'm loving it each day. I only have praises for this briefcase. The look, feel and style is excellent. There is more than adequate padding and pockets to accommodate all my items and the soft sumptuous leather allows for a great feel and is very comfortable in my hands. Well thought out functional design.

              Comments about Expandable Organizer Laptop Leather Brief:

              I live out of this case - it sits by my desk at home and is at my side whenever I travel for work The many pockets make it, basically, an extension of my desk. It has lasted through hundreds of thousands of travel miles and everything is still working perfectly. The sleeve on the back through which the handle of my rolling bag slips is the best method I have found for securing a heavy briefcase onto a wheelie. The only negative is that it's ugly as sin. After heavy use it loses it's shape a bit and the side slots hang open limply. I have patina envy. The leather doesn't develop character - it stays brown and shiny and new looking right up until the moment it gets scuffed.
