FAQ:
  • 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 the Heritage Brown distressed leather is that it develops its own character as it gets used over time— incorporating rainspots and the occassional dings from getting bumped around. Leather conditioners may darken and alter the leather, perhaps not something you desire. If at some point you want to condition the leather - we suggest using mink oil. This will darken a bit at first— but will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with heat from a hair dryer.

    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.

Xtremely Perfect Briefcase for my ThinkPad X1 Extreme (Gen 2)

I went with the Bison Black Leather as it was more of my style. Its hardware beautifully complements the black exterior. The looks projects a "very professional" vibe to it.

The shoulder straps are serviceable but I much prefer lugging it by hand. The leather handles are quite sturdy, and can be comfortably carried with roughly 9 lbs of weight on it.

The zipper hardware is weatherproof, the zip sliders feature a small hole for those small locks, and it slides smoothly too.

Let's talk about the pockets:
* From the pictures the discreet pocket looked small but in reality it's actually vast. You can put not only your phones (yes, plural), but also a fat wallet, some keys, or a small notepad. A replacement for your pants' pocket.

* There are two sizable interior pockets. Each can fit 2 coiled-up 3-meter cables (be it an HDMI, Ethernet, or your USB-C/USB-A's), a wireless mouse with its charging cable, or an external drive plus connector.

* The tablet compartment can fit my iPad Air 4 with Smart Folio (no keyboard) on.

* The laptop compartment, the main attraction, can fit my ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 2. Subjectively, it didn't felt too tight or too loose -- it is a perfect fit. The reference dimensions were exactly my laptop's too, it was a match made in heaven.

With both my laptop and tablet on, it felt a bit tight. So I decided to just use the tablet compartment as a slot for envelopes or folders. If your device is slightly thinner than mine then this may not be an issue.

The briefcase is cavernous letting me pack my Tech Pocket (Small), my Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones, and another organizer.

Here is the list of tech packed in this briefcase:
* ThinkPad X1 Extreme + charging peripherals
* Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones
* My wireless mouse of choice, the Logitech MX Anywhere 3.
* 1 HDMI cable, 1 Ethernet Cable
* A tech organizer containing: 1 External SSD, 3 Flash Drives, 1 USB-C Hub.

The bag was made after 5 business days upon my order, it was shipped to the Philippines via a freight forwarder straight to my doorsteps in 3 weeks. Overall, the unboxing experience was worth the wait.

This aesthetics help project professionalism that goes well with business casual attires.

It was a joyful purchase.

I’ve been searching for the right briefcase for 5 years and finally took a leap of faith and got the bison leather version. Very happy with it! Looks great, is functional and has the feel of something that’s going to last a lifetime.

Beautifully crafted briefcase A+

I purchased the black bison leather briefcase and I couldn’t be happier with it. The craftsmanship is top notch. It’s obvious that the bag will last for a while - the hide is soft but thick and durable. Oddly enough, my favorite part about the bag is the zipper, which is enclosed to be protected from outside elements.

Gary and Jasmine were prompt to answer a couple of questions I had and they were accommodating.

I would recommend Waterfield to anyone looking for eye catching style and superior craftsmanship.
