Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Everyday Business Having worn out the last briefcase/messenger bag I had for 8 years, it was time to replace it. Being an Orvis "fan" and long-time customer, I checked out the Battenkill Briefcase online (specs, reviews, etc.) and then placed an order. I had it personalized, which was (understandably) supposed to take an extra week. I received the bag in three total days - unbelievable. After carrying for two weeks now - it's everything I needed and more. Both my adult children have "laid claim" to it when I retire. The most amazing feature is how comfortable it is to carry... I tend to carry a lot of stuff back-and-forth from the office, and my previous bag hurt my back sometimes. This case is very balanced and carry-friendly, and holds a lot of stuff while being very stylish. All the stress points are brass-rivet reinforced (where my previous bag failed), so I anticipate this being the last work bag I'll ever need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had mine for over 25 years. This is, hands down, the best bag I’ve ever owned. Mine is over 25 years old now and still going strong. These bags look better over time. They break in nicely and I’m always getting compliments wherever I go. This is the last briefcase you’ll ever buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best briefcase ever! I purchased a Battenkill briefcase for each of my sons and son-in-law over 15 years ago. They have used them daily in their careers and been complimented on them. This Christmas I purchased a replacement for a son who had worn his out after he assured me that the Battenkill briefcase is the only briefcase he would ever carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent briefcase! I needed a new briefcase and wanted good value for my money. The product is as described with plenty of room, nice features, terrific craftsmanship and likely will be the briefcase I use until I retire in 13 years.
