Beautiful Briefcase -
By: Mendhamguy from Mendham, NJ
Over the years, I've had briefcases from other companies which were gifts and which I liked, but they were no match for this. I decided to buy this for myself. Beautiful looking case with deep rich brown leather and nicely laid out interior which easily holds my laptop and assorted other commuting items (iPhone, books, pens, papers, lunch). I read some reviews which didn't care for the personalization, but I decided to have it personalized anyway with my initials and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It's a classy oval brass plate with initials in black. Looks beautiful and compliments the case. I looked for awhile at different briefcases and this had the best layout and look for the money.
Son's Retirement Gift -
By: RetiredArmy from Salt Lake, UT
I purchased the Bullhide Briefcase as a gift to honor my son's retirement from the Air Force this month. After committing years of dedication to defending American freedom, it had to be a special gift to launch him onto his next career. The quality and personalization of this gift was the perfect choice.

My husband loves his new computer/briefcase. He travels frequently and this holds everything he needs. Also gives a professional air.
Worlds most durable -
By: Rocksmore from Springville, Utah
I have had this bag since 2001 as an alternate to my aluminum brief case and the Bull hide bag beats it by a mile in weight and ease of use .
This is the second bullhide briefcase that I've purchased from Orvis for my husband. The first one lasted 10 years for business use and is still being used for fishing-related items. It is very sturdy, is large capacity, and looks good.
Extremely functional, but... -
By: JeffOTP from Burlingame, CA
Love the briefcase. Love its design. Love the set up. But... When slung over my shoulder, the back rubs up my slacks, expecially the pocket where I carry my wallet, resulting in stain. Has to go back as I cannot affrod to get my slacks dry-cleaned after each wearing. Bummer
Well worth the money -
By: 49erfan from New York, NY
I just received my second Bullhide Leather briefcase from Orvis. The second one was free because of Orvis' great unconditional return policy. I am hard on my briefcases. Before I came across this product, I would generally go through one to two a year, running around the NYC subway system with a bag loaded to capacity with files. I finally decided to break the bank and buy a good bag. This bag lasted more than five years but was beginning to show its age. There were some rips in the fabric and the hooks that hold the shoulder strap were deformed due to the heavy weight that the bag was required to carry. I was also on my second strap, the first one being replaced within two days of telephoning Orvis to tell them that it had broken. I brought the bag into an Orvis store to show them the defects, which would have destroyed any other bag, but did not effect the usability of this bag. The store manager immediately took the bag and issued me a gift card for the amount that I had paid. The new bag was a few dollars more, but Orvis just waived the price difference and I had a new bag within a week. It is clear that Orvis reads the reviews because they have made many improvements in things such as the quality of the lining and some small changes to make it easier to get to things and keep up with the technology of what you carry, such as computers. Not only do I recommend this bag, but I recommend anything that Orvis sells because their quality is top notch and they stand by the products better than any other retailer. I look forward to making many more purchases at Orvis.
As Expected So Far -
By: Magnumber44 from Colorado
I saw this briefcase in the store and asked for it as a Christmas gift. Santa did not disappoint and I said goodbye to my old Tumi that had lasted me years. I wanted the ruggedness of the Orvis model but with more professionalism than a canvas bag or backpack. Well it seems very rugged - double-stitched zippers, brass strap hardware and zipper pulls, sturdy handles. I was pleasantly surprised with the interior - places for tablet AND laptop, documents, pens, keys, phone, business cards, etc. I want to emphasize that it is even more attractive up close than the picture lets on. I love this case - I hope it lasts forever! It's only been a few weeks, but no problems so far.
Quality Product -
I purchased this briefcase as a xmas present for my boyfriend and purchased the gift wrap option. I wish I could have seen it first. It is definitely a very nice, well constructed, handsome briefcase but it is a little larger than I expected and it seems heavy to me. He loves it, but I would probably not have given it to him had I examined at it first. He has not used it yet.
Nice briefcase -

Nicely constructed briefcase in leather, but not too heavy.
