  • What is special about the American Bison leather?
  • This type of leather is quite unique. It has a distinctive grain—it’s one of a kind and quite desirable. Artisans and manufacturers go to great lengths to protect its appearance. To preserve this feature, the hides are not stretched during the tanning process. And because they’re not stretched as much as cow hide, the bison is thicker, more durable, and stronger. Organic materials are used during the tanning process. Your Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase will stay looking beautiful for a long time, and it will not look like anyone else's.

  • What is special about the Chocolate rugged full grain leather?
  • Full-grain leather has a super tight grain so it resists moisture very well, and it's strong and durable. This is the best, and most expensive part of the cowhide. Each hide has its own unique marks, a sign that it's the real thing. The leather develops a beautiful patina that adds to the bag's character over time. The more you use your Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase, the better it will look.

  • Why use a gold liner?
  • First, the liner adds a bit of protection for the different items you carry inside. Second, we chose gold because this lighter, brighter color makes it easier to quickly see the contents inside your pouch.

  • How do you suggest I clean the leather?
  • Actually, we suggest not doing anything. The beauty of distressed leather is developed with each use— with rain or getting bumped around. Leather conditioners will darken and alter the leather, maybe not something you desire. If you would like to condition the leather, we suggest using Mink Oil. This will darken at first, but it will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit using a hair dryer and your hand.

    Any leather dis-coloration or marks are straight from the actual hide itself; it's part of its character. This is how you know it’s the real thing. Each hide has it own, unique look. Your bag will be one-of-a-kind.

My beautiful Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase

Well, its been just over a month since I received my Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase. The leather and lines are so good looking, and I received a number of compliments on the briefcase. The overall functionality is great, both my 15" MacBook Pro and 12.9 iPad fits snuggly in the case. I also able to carry all my needed accessories (such as pens, notebook and etc.) without a problem. Again, I can not say enough on how beautiful the briefcase looks and feels. Then only two things that prevented me from giving a full five stars, and they are; the shoulder harness seems under whelmed for the size and weight of the bag fully loaded. I would be willing to paid for a full leather shoulder strap for this beautiful bag. Also, when the brief case has both laptop, tablet and notebook in the brief case, It becomes hard to to pull out the laptop because the stiff corners at the open go the bag, do not know how I would adjust that, but will just say it become a challenge getting the laptop out. Those two reason are why I did not give a full 5 Star rating. I still love the bag.

All leather, worth every penny

The leather accents on Waterfield bags have always been my favorite parts, so to have an entire bag made of leather is a luxurious treat. This bag is beautiful and somehow seems twice as large on the outside as inside. I love have a single central compartment like a traditional briefcase, but with multiple padded sleeves for laptop + iPad + kindle.

Great bag

Great bag, exactly as advertised. Been with me for week or two now and it feels great. Will have to come back for another review in couple of years, which I am sure it will last.

Solid bag. Expensive, but worth it.

Still early days with what promises to be my daily companion- but couldn’t be more pleased so far. Built solidly. Looks great. Even smells good. A big purchase, to be sure, but it looks like I’m going to be able to enjoy this bag for ages. Well worth it.

Above & Beyond

I have purchased multiple products from Waterfield and have always been impressed with the quality. Recently I purchased the Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase. I was going on a business trip and wanted to get it before I left. However the product wasn't going to ship before I left. I inquired if it was possible to expedite and by using expedited shipping explaining my desire to use on the trip. Unfortunately it would not make a difference so they suggested that I do not expedite. Then to my surprise, a couple of days later, the company sent it express shipping anyway. Thank you Waterfield!
