The Samsonite Leather Briefcase (Expandable) is a suprisingly light briefcase for the size and capacity offered within. For all intents and purposes, this is Samsonite’s cookie cutter leather briefcase, great for business professionals that need a briefcase that can hold a large amount of paperwork in addition to their laptop.
On the outside is a soft luxerious leasther made with clean lines, resulting in a professional and conservative exterior. The bag does not have too many zippers or buckles yet allows for easy access to each compartment depending on what you are looking for. We like how the zipper tracks are only deep for one section, making the closing and opening of the bag quick and simple. The zippers themselves are slightly less heavy duty than we would like, but it allows the zippers to blend in well for an overall clean appearance. We do note that the leather is rather soft, and may be subject to scuffing if abused.
The interior has a great layout that is lined with soft cloth with flaps and zippers appriopriately spread out inside. It is easy to be organized with the three seperate compartments with each compartment having its own organizational subsections.
For the travel oriented, the bag the strap is padded, detachable and removable. As always we love the Samsonite SmartPocket in the rear allows for easy attachment to a suitcase handle. With the expandable function of this briefcase, there is a lot of capacity in each section, making this a great briefcase for longer trips.
The laptop compartment is suitably padded, we fit our 15″ laptop with plenty of room to spare. Although the 17″ laptop was a tight fit, the bag was still able to handle the amount of storage we usually manage to fit in the Samsonite’s large attache case we reviewed here.
If you are looking to get a briefcase, do note that the top handle is meant to be carried together, meaning you need to fish the hands from either side before being able to carry it. We know some people dislike this requirement.
Overall it is a standard leather briefcase that neither impresses or concerns us; a relatively safe choice. Do recall that it is a larger briefcase meant for carrying more documentation than you would usually fit in a laptop bag. Click here to view current prices.
