Yes...time goes by quickly...its 2 years that we have our Saddleback briefcase.
We agree with Dave Munson of Saddleback, these things are probably indestructible and last at least one lifetime.
If you require a rugged, go anywhere leather briefcase to carry all of your stuff. We encourage you to get a Saddleback.
Yes...it still attracts attention, especially at airport security when its full of all of our travel stuff, from a laptop, smart devices, to a plastic bag with change; while still generating all sorts of positive comments.
When most folks go around with a backpack...we go around with a Saddleback.
It continues to get shoved under airplane seats on a regular basis.
Its an endearing briefcase especially if you have a "thing" for leather briefcases. Its big enough to hold all sorts of stuff when travelling on business, holds stuff when travelling on pleasure, takes all sorts of abuse especially shoved under airplane seats, and is slowly acquiring its own "patina".
At a time when most folks have a nylon something or other, this one is leather.
Where has the briefcase gone during the past year? Farthest west was Sakatchewan, east was New Brunswick, north was probably Quebec City, and south the Caribbean, and a bunch of places in between...yes by now its travelled across Canada.
