Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBguy89 Okay Briefcase
This briefcase is okay, not great but okay. I have carried it about 3 years and it has held up very well. It shows almost no wear after almost daily useage. It's down falls are that it has no padding at all and isn't very comfortable to carry. The strap is terrible, very uncomfortable, but the price is right. If I had it to do over again , I probably would spend the extra money and get the Sportsmans model. if you look at how well it has held up it is up to LL Bean standards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanBoyJr Well-built, hope it lasts
I bought the carbon color bag - which actually seems more greenish in color. A nice color, though. A little heavy - probably could've done without the flap - I'm not sure what it's there for. I use this for some papers and tablet; hoping someday that you make a version for tablets (do people still lug their laptops around?) that's slightly smaller. I like the unstructured aspect of the bag. Hard to find bags that aren't too stiff and can't expand and be stuffed with things when needed.

Some of the reviews on this briefcase gave me pause, but I am so glad I purchased it. I prefer the one large space for packing what I need. There are additional zippered areas for other items and I find the quality quite acceptable. This briefcase was also purchased with the Carryall Underseat Bag and I can travel anywhere with them for two weeks or more. I have used this briefcase for four months now and am totally pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by strategicshopper Well made item, great carry all!
I got this bag as a gift for my husband to replace his work bag that was falling apart. My husband was impressed with the bag because it is constructed very well and has lots of pockets. It is also a very perfessional looking bag which was very important because my husband is a nurse. I had my husbands initials monogrammed on the bag and it looks wonderful! The bags shoulder strap has metal hardware which was very impressive. This bag will allow him to carry his lunch in the main pocket while also having a different pocket for important papers. I am so glad I ordered this bag, it should last him for several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyRVT DOES IT ALL..
Walking/bicycling every day for light grocery shopping, hauling computer to coffee/writing hangout, and rail day tripping--the carryall does it all. Like my high priced backpack (another make) which is the alternative, this carryall is the regular for me.
About the only change i would make to it is a band inside on one end to hold the Starbucks mug--consider that in the next design revision.

This bag is for my husband.I got it to replace another bag of his that was falling apart.This bag is constructed very well, and he is impressed with the durability and weight of the bag. The tough,sturdy fabric looks like it will hold up to wear and tear. The carbon color is a great color. I had my husbands initials monogrammed on the front zip pocket of the bag, just beautiful! The shoulder strap(detachable) with the non-slip pad appears thick and comfortable and comes with metal hardware. So glad I found this, it should last for a long time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Boomer41 Briefcase is a Disapointment
I guess I should have read the description provided for the briefcase more closely. I was expecting a bag with inside pockets/separators for my folders and books, etc. Instead the interior was just a large empty space for items to get lost in. Pretty useless as far as I am concerned. The exterior pocket designated for your laptop was also a disappointment. There is absolutely no protection provided, if you are worried about damage you need to provide protection yourself. None of this would have been a problem if the description had been more accurate or a picture of the interior provided. I never would have purchased it. I am returning the briefcase; it is totally unworthy of the LL Bean label.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very versatile
The bag is on the smaller side for a briefcase, which is what I was looking for. Considering its size, it can hold a good volume and variety of items. I've carried it to work every day for a couple months now, and I've always been able to fit everything I need into it. I generally carry at least 2 meals, a compact umbrella, a couple notebooks, a few minor first aid items, a multitool, pens, pencils, a calculator, an ipod, and a Nook. The bag can handle all of that plus a little more and keep it well organized without feeling stuffed.
