PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Carry on the tradition with this leather briefcase
We built our Tusting Briefbag for those who want a large leather briefcase that’s rugged, structured and made in England of a durable leather that gains character with years of use. Tusting’s famed leather is lovingly produced to enhance its characteristics of durability, water resistance and ease of maintenance.  
Made in England, expressly for Levenger
These are heirloom-quality pieces, made in England by Tusting of Buckinghamshire, creator of fine leather goods since 1875. These rich Tusting leathers mellow with age, acquiring that comfortably worn-in look, as if you’ve owned them forever. Some variations may occur in coloring, as the leather is finished by hand using an age-old process. 
A word about the wax in Tusting leather
One of the reasons this full-grain leather has such a rich and resilient character is because of the wax that's deeply ingrained. Occasionally this wax may leave a mark on clothing, so do take care. For Tusting leather not to have this wax, though, would be like England not to have history. It's part of what makes your Tusting bag endure.
  • 3 compartments that hold letter- and legal-size files and note pads
  • Removable leather-trimmed laptop sleeve fits laptops up to 14 1/2W x 2 1/4D x 10 1/2H (most 15 inch screens)
  • 3 leather organizational pockets for a cell phone or PDA, 3 x 5 cards, business cards and 2 pens
  • Interior zip compartment
  • 2 tall outside stash pockets
  • Rugged brass zippers allow full access to the interior
  • Adjustable shoulder strap has a drop length of 15–17 inches
  • Extra-long shoulder strap available
  • Cotton twill lining
  • 18W x 6D x 12 1/2H; 4.5 pounds
  • American leather made in England

CRAFTED IN ENGLAND FOR THE AMERICAN WORK STYLE
The British have a talent for putting craftsmanship first and taking the time that attention to detail demands. We work with a small, family-owned tannery tucked away in the Buckinghamshire countryside to create these leather goods. The leather is as aromatic as a new saddle and has the same substantial feel.

My wife purchased this bag for my birthday, about 7 years ago. I train to Chicago several days a week, fly a couple of times a month, and also drive to several meetings each months. In short, I use this bag daily in a variety of ways. I have had bags by Hartmann, Tumi, Boyt - all good but with some flaws. This bag has none, It looks great, opens easily when standing or flipped on side, is functional, tough, and still looks virtually new - despite being loaded to capacity frequently. One of the best business accessory purchases I have ever made - and that is saying a lot.

Let me first say that from a style standpoint this brief bag gives the appearance of professionalism and class. That being said, it took me two years of owning/using this bag to realize the quality was not commensurate with the price. In particular, the outside of zipper enclosure (a canvas type material) began separating from the bag during the second year. Shortly thereafter the zipper began to work only in one direction. Not once did I overload or mistreat the bag so this is not a case of improper use. Although I enjoyed it while it lasted, this product does not have the level of quality necessary to justify the price.

This briefbag is elegant yet a work horse. Classy & Casual. A conversation piece and envy of the office. Just got it and can't wait for it to show its age. Built to last.

Sturdy, well-made briefcase.

By 

from Detroit, MI

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

Very satisfied with this quality briefcase. Tusting recommends occasionally treating the leather with its Hide cream, which is only available via shipment from UK. I twice contacted Levenger and was referred to two separate web-sites which don't carry the Tusting Hide Cream. It would be helpful if Levenger carried this product or could refer to a supplier in the US or could provide an accessible alternative. Not satisfied by the serve after the sale.

A Wonderful Bag

By

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

I had been looking at this bag for a while, and so far my only regret is that I waited this long. Daily I carry my computer, files and misc items. This bad has space for all of it and room left over. The only complaints I have are minor. There are only 2 pen loops, so I have used the edge of one of the pockets and that has worked well. Also, the zippers hit on the snap if you walk with it fully unzipped. Both of these are easily overcome. I range from casual to formal and these bad suites the full spectrum without being pretentious.

Great Brief Bag

By 

from Providence, RI

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

I purchased this brief bag because of its size and the separate laptop case that comes with it. The appearance is fantastic and has the look of a much more expensive bag. It is very roomy and has pockets and holders for all of my accessories for my laptop. I have purchased other Tusting products through Levenger and have been very happy with their quality. I also want to comment on Levenger's customer service. When I first received the brief bag the second time I used it I notices a stitch was missing from one on the bottom corners of the bag. I returned the bag to Levenger and promptly received a replacement (brand new bag) that I am very happy with and I am sure will be happy with for years to come. Great products and excellent customer service is what makes Levenger a company I am happy to recommend to others.

Beautiful and luxurious

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

I have looked at these bags in the catalog for years and wanted one for a long time. My wife recently found out and bought me one for my birthday. WOW! What a great surprise.

This bag looks and feels incredible. The attention to detail is evident. The leather is tough but soft to the touch. This is one of those items that help define a person and as I walk into meet with customers I know they see it and respond to it. However, that isn't what makes it great. Even though it was a present, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment to know that I have worked to be in a position to use a bag like this.

The irony of the review is that my only knock is on function because I have carried a laptop backpack for years and all the pockets in the backpack are missed. I have purchased some storage components to use in the bag and would suggest Levenger consider including an inexpensive cube or two with the bag.

Other than that little learning curve for me, I am ecstatic to own this bag.

Workhorse

By 

from New Orleans, LA

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

I bought this case several years ago and it quickly became the workhorse in my collection. I have over a dozen briefcases and like to rotate them frequently, but the Tusting/Cambridge Briefbag is the one I use most often. I rarely use the laptop sleeve, but that only gives me more room for other essentials.

Once a month I use a leather cleaner/conditioner to repair the scuffs and scraps I subject the bag to and it comes up looking nearly new.

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

My wife purchased this bag for me 9 years ago and i greatly enjoy using it daily. This year the zip broke and I contacted customer service. Days later a new bag arrived at my home and the process was hassle free. I already shared my experience with several co-workers and friends and they are planning to make their next quality purchase from levenger.

Excellent Briefcase

By 

from Orange Co, CA

Site Member

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

I had balked at purchasing this due to the price, but bought in when they ran a sale. I am very pleased. I was looking for a case that would stand open next to my chair or at my feat on a train. I can slip folders into it or file papers temporarily in the outside pockets on both sides. the interior pockets are well arranged and useful. Two places for business cards and a slot for a phone or calculator, plus a large zippered pocket to hold things I might loose. In 6 months it has a few scuffs, but still looks great. The interior color, kind of a mustard, put me off at first, but it does allow one to find things in dim light. I don't usually use the laptop sleeve. I replaced it with a Levenger Ambi Leather folio, that I use to store my iPad. I grab the folio for meetings and when I don't want to carry the whole briefcase.

A Bag of Substance

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Levenger Tusting Briefbag:

This bag is very substantial, quite handsome, and exudes quality. I expect to own it a very long time.

I do wish there were a few more internal pouches for pens and other miscellany (but it hardly bothers me and forces me to be a bit more organized). One note for you taller gents is to order the extended strap because the default one is a bit too short for me (I'm 6'1"); it would be nice if you could select between the two straps at the time of purchase.

As with the majority of darker colored articles, especially dyed leather goods, markings may rub-off on lighter colored clothing (one of my initial hesitations to ordering the bag). I minimized this risk by rubbing the bag down with a clean shoe-polishing cloth (the cloth turned brownish).

There was zero buyers' remorse when I received the bag and I'd repurchase it (if I had a time machine) in a heartbeat.
