An Overall Satisfying Purchase,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samsonite Leather Checkpoint Friendly Brief (Black) (Apparel)
I will start by saying that I only give 5 stars to something that blows my mind. Period. That having been said, this is a really good buy, especially for what I spent (it was on sale). Construction seems sound, as I have used it to carry 3-4 heavy programming textbooks back and forth from work every day. Every few days, I will also toss in a few 18.9 fl oz Gatorade bottles and some V8 cans along with the books. Even with this weight, the shoulder strap seems to be holding up fine. The leather doesn't seem to scuff easily, although I haven't actually scraped it on anything with any amount of force yet. The briefcase really seems like it will last at least a few years. Overall, it is well above average as briefcases go, and an especially good buy if you get it on sale.

Now that it's been over a year, how has this held up?
I had a very similar Samsonite (2008 or so) that ripped around the carrying handles. I want this bag, but am hoping they fixed this issue.
