Bob Timberlake First Class Leather Collection - Vertical Briefcase
Nice Looking Bag, But...
The bag looks nice and was exactly what I was looking for, and it has all the right compartments. However, there are two issues I've had with the bag:
1. After six months of medium use, the leather loop on the side of the bag where the shoulder strap connects to the bag, tore. So, I cannot use the shoulder strap anymore. I wouldn't consider what I carry in my bag too heavy, so the loop should not have torn. Because this is a Bass Pro Shops exclusive product, I suggest that Bass Pro Shops use stronger leather for the side loops.
2. The latch on the front flap doesn't always stay latched. (I think I saw another person with the same issue.)

Bob Timberlake Vertical Briefcase
First and foremost the leather on this bag is very luxurious. It has a soft, supple feel to it right from the store. It has plenty of pockets with a cool constrasting tan colored inside. I don't know how big some of the reviewer's computers are, but my 17 inch screen Asus fits fine in the laptop sleeve. The bag scuffs easily, but I think it gives the bag a nice worn look. I use a little Bick 4 Leather conditoner every few months to keep the leather like new. I am a teacher, so I use mine every single day to lug papers and school stuff to and from the house. I have it loaded to 15-20 lbs. sometimes and the bag works beautifully. Overall, I think I made a GREAT purchase and LOVE the look.

The Timberlake vertical bag was very nice inside and out. There are more pockets and areas for storage than any of the pictures show on-line. The leather is top notch quality and was one of the best purchases I have made for a laptop case. Still getting compliments on the bag....

Beautiful and Functional
I was looking for something more professional-looking than the nylon computer backpack I had been lugging around for several years. Being an avid Bass Pro shopper, I was very excited to see this product on sale during one of the Preferred Members nights.
I have been using this for about 6 months now (given to myself as a birthday/Father's Day gift) and have absolutely NO complaints. My 15" Mac laptop fits VERY nicely and there is ample space for a mouse, network card, power cord pluse work files as needed.
I can't think of anything else that I would want in a laptop case!
