When the Original Briefcase was introduced in 1994, the mission was clear: use the best materials available to manufacture a briefcase that would live up to the legacy of providing customers with gear that stands up to the rigors of hard use, year after year. More than a quarter-century later, it remains our best-selling bag–a testament to the old-fashioned idea that if a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
Every design detail of the Original Briefcase was carefully considered–even the ones that aren’t obvious, such as the binding on the interior seams that prevents fraying, and the double-layer bottom for added protection and durability. While its trim design wasn’t intended for carrying large computers, the two interior dividers can accommodate tablets or smaller laptops. With slotted interior pockets for pens, tools and cards, keeping organized is a cinch. The Bridle Leather shoulder strap is removable and adjustable for a custom fit, and features a sliding shoulder pad for comfort with heavier loads. Custom solid brass hardware is sand-cast and debossed exclusively for Filson, because every detail matters.
