It is a joy to use this bag every workday. I can pack a lunch bag, change of shoes, and a 1 liter water bottle inside, plus my work papers. Amazing, high quality hide and canvas. The ultimate combination of utility and luxury. People where I work approach me and comment on what a nice bag I have. I tell them it is from Duluth Pack!
I bought this bag for when I begin my clinical years in medical school--I wanted something more professional than a backpack, but I can't stand most briefcases out there. I love how "earthy" this bag is, and the deep olive green is such a great color. My wife loves the bag, and thinks it's definitely the "me" briefcase/bag out there. I have the feeling this bag will last a long time.
My only complaint about the bag is the bright gold brass fittings--I wish they would have had a more dull and antique finish, as I'm not of fan of the bright brass (too "flashy" for me). However, it didn't occur to me until after I ordered it that I could have asked Duluth Pack to change the type of fittings used--it's just so rare to run into a company who will modify their product for you personally, that it didn't even occur to me!
I have owned this briefcase for almost 5 years now and it's still going string. The leather is extremely durable and after 5 years still looks like new. I use this bag on a daily bases too. The canvas straps are very durable and have held up, even in a motorcycle crash. This bag literally saved me when I was in a motorcycle accident. The bag was between me and the pavement and took the brunt of the contact.
I travel extensively for work and need to carry many different items. This bag has been great to dump anything (laptop, books, presentations etc.) into and it is comfortable to carry. The heavy duty construction ensures that it won't break on me (no flimsy shoulder straps). And probably most importantly this is a great conversation starter with clients. It definitely stands out compared to everyone else's black briefcase.
The Executive Portfolio is a well-designed, well-constructed, stylish bag that I use every day to carry my necessities to and from work, as well as if I go on the road for any reason. It's perfect for my notepads, papers, business cards, and MP3 player, as well as having ample room to include my laptop, mouse, power adaptor and other computer stuff like CD-ROMs and cables. I've worn out significantly lesser bags, but I've had my Duluth Pack Executive Portfolio for two years now and it's barely even showing wear.
I take a lot of stuff with me when I go to work. This bag carries it all with ease. It could also be a nice overnight bag if you travel light. The pockets and dividers keep things organized. The bag is so well made, it should be the last bag I buy in this size.
Yes, it is expensive, but worth it. I plan to buy more bags in different sizes as my cheaper bags wear out. It will take a while to get a full set, but these bags will last for the rest of my life.
