Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

I had been eyeing this bag for a while and finally puled the trigger. It has not disappointed. It is very unique in its appearance and stands out from all of the other bags in our office. It's a little bigger and heavier than I expected, but not in any way that I find troublesome. I wish the interior had a few more organization pockets, but I've learned to adjust. My only real request for a change in the design would be the closure on the front pouch. It closes with snaps which aren't that easy to close. While this might be to help keep it closed, I'd much prefer the magnetic closures prevalent on many bags. Even so, I'm so happy I finally bought this and look forward to using it for many years.

    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

    I transitioned to the Hudson laptop briefcase from the Hudson Messenger and it's been a great decision for work commuting. It's lightweight design packs all of the same components I use to carry my work life around the city, but it's much more svelt. I have nothing bad to say, and highly recommend this for all designers/creatives who need various technological pieces on their person at any given time. Graphic designer approved!

    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

    I have been using large purses to put my computer for work while looking feminine. This bag is not as feminine as I hoped, but it does the job. It's definitely well made and nicely organized inside. The big problem is that it's too heavy. But I guess it's heavy cause of all the patting and the material. Overall I think this is the best bag I have been able to find that fulfills my needs.

    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

    If you seek a nice looking bag, but not too showy, this is a classic if a little boring looker. Inside it has everything you need and nothing you don't. I travel every week and this is a nice size if you can manage to curate your belongings and work papers a bit. The handles are a little flimsy but overall construction seems strong at this price point.

    Good look but not adequate

    By Sales Go Bag

    Pros

    • Attractive Design
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Flimsy Construction
    • Inadequate Capacity
    • Not Secure

    Best Uses

      Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

      I use this bag for work, it was my first Timbuk2 purchase. I am not as happy as I would like to be with this bag, especially considering the price paid.

      My main complaint about the bag is that once I have my usual gear in the bag the front pocket buttons unsnap and the front pocket cover/lip lays out almost horizontal from the bag. This creates an unkept looking scenario any time that I carry the bag via the Grab Handles.

      Laptop Pocket:
      - Samsung Series 9 Ultrabook
      - 1TB External Hard Drive

      Main Pocket:
      - Notepad/Padfolio
      - Sales sheets/brochures
      - Mobile Hotspot
      - Samsung Battery Pack
      - Pens, Business cards, Altoids, and Powerbar

      Front Pocket:
      - Grid-It (medium)
      - Samsung Laptop power cord

      The fit, size, and look of this bag are what I like but unfortunately it does not hold up well under what I would consider normal use. I will be going back to my local Timbuk2 to see if there is another bag that could perhaps meet my needs and also see how well they stand by their warranty.

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

        The bag is beautiful, but the leather bits are of very poor quality. Hopefully it lasts, but I fear the rivets and snaps will pull thru the leather at any time.
        I expected better quality as other Hudson bags I have seen have better quality leather.

        I have several Timbuk2 bags including the Core laptop bag and this one and the Hudson bag needs all the Core's features as the Hudson front pocket is worthless when the bag is full unlike the Core who's front outside pocket has storage pockets, dividers and is bellowed....Core has a solid grab handle Hudson's are flimsy...Hudson has the looks...Core has everything else including rear outside storage!

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

        I've been carrying this briefcase every weekday since Christmas of 2013 and it still looks great and feels brand new. It has ample room for magazines, papers, document organizers, office supplies, my Air and occasionally my iPad. The key keeper is an added bonus that I didn't think I'd use but it's been great for making sure I don't lose the keys to the library.

        The only gripe I have is that the finish on the leather handles and trim scuffs/ wears off rather easily.
