Samsonite� 17 Portfolio/Laptop Case, Black
Excellent Travel Case
This is my third one of the same case. My first one wore out after two years of intensive ariline travel. My replacement has held up well for the next year and a half. However prior to leaving for China I noticed that one of the straps was haning on by a thread. I bought another one for the trip. Received it the next day, but upon arrival the shoulder strap pad had not been completely sown. Overall an excellent bag, however the durability and quality could improve for a road warrior. Medium to light users will probably love it.

Great design with lots of compartments. Perfect for the business traveler Quality isn't like a Tumi, but then this isn't $400. I don't use the strap so don't know if that's any good. I bought a backup one because I like this one so much. Who needs a bag to last 20 years and look horrible for 17 of them?

should have listened
the shoulder strap broke the first time I used it (in the Denver airport at the start of a week-long sales trip.
first - I love the design and features of the bag. I looked at MANY bags to find this one. I saw the review and assumed it was a fluke...wrong. however, the incredible staff at a store in Roseburg Oregon exchanged the bag for me and allowed to move forward.
second - I do not carry a laptop. all that was in the bag was a tablet, accessories, a magazine, and a book. it was not heavily loaded.
I am keeping the receipt in the bag in case. I love the bag. i am keeping my eye on the strap,we will see.

Great case, but had to exchange
this is a great case, accommodates 17" laptops, very durable, with nice divided storage compartments. unfortunately I had to exchange the original case for another one after one of the strap attachment loops tore away from the case. not sure if this is a design flaw, or manufacturing flaw. I have only used it with laptop and peripherals (heavy) a few times, so I don't think I've overloaded it.
