Great everyday briefcase,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Leather Flapover Briefcase (Apparel)
I have had this case for over 2 weeks now and I love it! I do not own a laptop, so I can't comment on its capacity to carry them (from the space inside I'm sure it could hold most average-sized laptops or notebooks...wide screens may be a problem). The material is very high quality and looks and feels like a briefcase carried by your average 5th Avenue attorney. Some people I've met have said that it seems a little "boxy," but it is a BRIEFCASE not a BAG. If I could find any fault, it would be the small openings on each side of the case, below where the srap is clipped, which are exposed when the flap is buckled. I have carried this through the rain with no problem, as the openings are on the sides and not facing upwards. I have no huge problem with them, but others might if they are carrying a laptop or other electronic device very often through the rain without the convenience of an umbrella. However, I wouldn't go as far to say that it isn't weatherproof. Mine has gotten soaked from rain a few times and it, and my belongings inside, still look exactly like what they did when I took the case out of the box. All in all, a great quality case for the money.
