Rated 5 out of 5 by Cantpickanickname Perfect for a busy NP!
I purchased this bag to use for work as an NP. The bag is perfect for work as it is roomy enough to add additional items and not so heavy that it kills my shoulders. I've also used this for a recent business trip & the bag worked well for that as well. ??????

Rated 1 out of 5 by 300b Had to return it
Unfortunately, the briefcase that I received had a weird odor. So I had to return it. I hope that this is a rare occurrence and that very few others have had this experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roie Perfect size
Gave this to my husband who needed it to carry his laptop computer. This was large enough to fit the computer plus all the other stuff he wants available in a briefcase.
He loves it. Says it is the perfect size, quality is excellent. He already tried it traveling to Japan. Both he and the case returned without a scratch!!
LLBean can be trusted to provide excellent service, great quality, etc. We shop via the website frequently without incident. Great company!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustAnotherReviewer SOOO many compartments!
Very roomy with lots & lots of zippered compartments! It can comfortably hold a 15.1" Vaio, 13" Toshiba, and a 15.4" Macbook Pro along with their power adapters and still have room for 3" of folders. And there are plenty of other compartments for tons of other odds and ends. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrChatham As Advertised
The bag is resilient, very light and can fit my Surface computer plus IPhone, files, business cards, etc. and still be light. It has tons of zippered compartments and the zippers appear to be of good quality. I replaced a bag from another vendor who advertised their bag as "rugged yet flexible". It turned out to be neither. It was bulky, heavy and within 6 months, the shoulder strap broke. Before a year was out, the zipper for the computer compartment broke. 6 months later, every zipper was broken, I had a bag that didn't close anywhere; so, you had to have it at your feet because if you stowed it overhead, everything would fall out.
The LL Bean briefcase has solved the problem beautifully and with its distinctive color, it's easy to tell which bag is mine. Highly recommended.

Well designed product that seems to be well built. A useful replacement for an earlier soft briefcase that has lasted over 15 years, and at this early point it seems capable of a similar long life.

The briefcase arrived earlier than promised and was exactly what was advertised. Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raley Great case!
All of the pockets are easy to organize all of papers and laptop. Many pockets are softly I lined for my other devices and prevent scratches. Top quality construction. Extremely accessible. Glad my wife bought it for me!! Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by annieboston Been using it for months now, love it.
This is a great briefcase. I have a slim briefcase for days when I just need my laptop. This is the one I use if I need to lug a pile of files or a big binder too. Seems like I can jam endless folders---okay, maybe not endless, but lots into this bag.
You need to have a policy for all the pockets and places it provides. There's an obvious phone pouch and laptop sleeve and place for your tablet but then there are lots of other pockets. When I first got it, I'd forget what I had put where. Now that I've decided what goes where, it's all good.
Really happy with this purchase.
