I travel a lot for work. I am always throwing my briefcase around on planes, in rental cars, etc. I go through briefcases like I do t-shirts. I've never been one of those that was fond of the fancy leather briefcases from major designers. I need something that will protect my stuff, hold up to abuse, and not cost more than a mortgage. This bag rocks. It's everything I expect from Carhartt, but incredibly lightweight. Rain repellent, triple needle stitched, it's just rock solid. It's padded on the inside for a laptop. Size is just perfect. I was hesitant at first to buy it, but now my only regret is not buying it sooner.
The pictures don't show the whole thing, when you see inside there are many extra storage compartments which is very useful. This bag is very very high quality and like nothing you will find in a retail store , it looks and feels like a military grade bag, and I would say this bag could easily go for $180 dollars once you see it in person.
I purchased the Legacy Brief Bag for my husband for Christmas in 2015. He's the owner of a Commercial Plumbing and Mechanical Contracting Company who likes to check in on job progress daily. This is anywhere from out in the dirt on a ground rough to a finished building and includes all types of weather conditions. He was ecstatic with the gift and has literally over used the bag for the past 12 months and it still looks brand new. His bag is overloaded with folders, an iPad Pro, every pen and sharpie that's been made as well as personal items, snacks and the kitchen sink and there's not a single stress mark or tear on the bar or its handles. The water resistant feature is fabulous and truly keeps the inside dry.
