I use this bag as my everyday briefcase. It's roomy, has several smaller pockets for all my devices and accessories, and holds up well under everyday use. It transitions well for use on short business/personal trips. It's durable, casual, yet the finishing and detailing makes it perfectly acceptable in a relaxed professional setting like my office.

Update to my previous review: after eight days of heavy use (on vacation in Australia, carrying the bag, weighed down with camera, lenses, wallet, water bottle, etc., everywhere), the suede loop attachment for one side of the shoulder strap began ripping. I suspect this is due to the D-ring hardware, which is thin and can move around easily, which of course rubs on the suede loop.
I like the bag overall, so I am getting the loops replaced with a more durable leather and getting different hardware, but not having to go to the trouble after eight days would have been better.
