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

  • Inadequate Capacity

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.

              Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

              I was contemplating between this and the Proof Laptop Messenger bag (also another Distilled Collection series). But in the end I got this Hudson Laptop Briefcase, because:

              1) "Handle grip" - Is this important? Maybe yes, when I place down my bag on the ground, I can pick it up using the handle grip. Some people mind not having it. I'm indifferent.

              2) Bigger is better - This bag is bigger, it can carry my company's 14" Dell Latitude laptop, which is thick and not an Ultrabook. According to the website, my company's laptop fits this bag but not the Proof Laptop Messenger bag.

              3) Briefcase, in my opinion, is more "mature looking"

              4) Ample compartments - one for my iPod touch, one for BlackBerry, one for iPad, one for Laptop, another one for External Battery Charger or it could fit in a "Phablet" (I believe). And many more, which I don't use often. :)

              Some "cons" which I have to point out though:
              1) Like one of the other review. The front big pocket is enclosed by using "buttons". And they are not "magnetic". Unlike magnetic buttons, it needs more effort to
              (a) find the right spot; and
              (b) push it in with slight force; and
              (c) it might close "silently".
              And for (c), I get paranoid and I was like.. "did I close it? let me try again.."

              2) Again, like another review. The (removable) strap does not come with a Strap Pad (!!). I knew it in the first place and purchased the Strap Pad from Timbuk2 - "Custom Strap Pad (Medium, Black_888, Waterproof Polybond)". I was hesitant which colour to match the Strap Pad with this (Stone_1920, Waxed Canvas) Hudson Laptop Briefcase. I played the safest rule, picking a Black (easiest-to-pair-with colour) one. And as expected, it "blended" with the black (removable) strap of the bag. I strongly suggest buying a Strap Pad especially if you carry it over your shoulder often. My stuff weigh a tons, probably 3kg excluding the bag, and so Strap Pad is a must-have!!

              3) Because the Briefcase can be "split into half", the hook for the (removable) strap is built onto the other half of bag. As a result, it went kind of off balance (if you get what I mean). It take time to get used to, not a big issue for me. Overall the strap is still centrally positioned.

              4) The "leather portion", it is black colour for my case, when the bag first came, I noticed the "back" of the leather is "greenish" in colour. I thought it was mold (??), but doesn't smell like one. But I gets particular about colour matching. My bag is stone grey overall, with black leather, and some parts look greenish (wth?). Anyway, it is not very visible. You will only notice it if you look at the "back" of the handle grip.

              5) The zip is big, and "tough". It needs some effort to unzip the bag. I hope that "toughness" translates to "durability" and quality of the zip.

              Overall, I like it and I am likely to recommend it. It is expensive, yes I feel so, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. But the design, the number of compartments, it suits the style of a Young Adult.

              I can't comment on the quality, but it has not break down on me yet. :)

              Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

              The product is one of many bags I have purchased from Timbuk2. This product's layout is great but the handle construction failed after one day. I called Timbuk2 and they are aware of the faulty design and plan to replace this bag in February once the improved version arrives. I am surprised they are still selling it since they are aware these bages will not hold up well.
