The one thing it did not do this past year is go to the Caribbean, The Colonel opted for a smaller briefcase.
Yes...still attracts attention especially in airports.
Dave Munson of Saddleback is correct, after 4 years still looks new, with hardly any wear showing. It actually looks better now with the start of a patina.
Remains very useful to carry all sorts of technological devices (laptop, smart phones, camera), and old school stuff like a writing pad, pens, spare change, lip balm to name a few.
Especially if you have an aversion to syntethic material, wheeled cases with a handle that are so common in airports. Lets not forget the usual back packs that you see all over the place.
Its a unique, cool, durable leather briefcase in our case ideal for business use and travel.
