    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

    I own three Timbuk2 back packs and two messengers, and they are all tough as nails. The oldest one has carried heavy loads for close to a decade, and not a sign of wear. So, when I saw this bag with what I think is a very cool, professional design, I knew it would be perfect for work commuting. And it is! The design of the compartments (separate, custom sized and padded for a MacBook Pro 15" or smaller and large or small iPad, plus separate compartments for all your other stuff, plus, lots of pockets and zippered enclosure for all the little things... So well thought out. As long as I don't need to carry something BIG, I've always found this thing organized, secure, and really good protective padding.

    Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

    I had a classic messenger bag for almost 7 years. When I finally upgraded to a more professional looking bag I was excited with the distilled collection briefcase. I like everything about it but the capacity. The main compartment needs to be 2-3 inches wider to accommodate all my stuff. Other than that I'm really enjoying it.

      Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

      This is my first briefcase style bag and I did a lot of research, and this definitely meets my expectations and advertisement. It fits well with business attire as well as casual attire, and it was thoughtfully designed. All aspects of the bag are useful and the TSA approved computer compartment works as advertised. I have not had any problems with the TSA at several different airports. The main compartment could be slightly bigger for air travel to accommodate the usual business stuff plus headphones and a bottle of water--not a complaint, just a suggestion.

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

        My wife introduced me to the Timbuk2 brand recently and recommended I purchase a briefcase from the company to replace my very tired looking bag. I travel extensively for work and the first trip with my new Hudson Briefcase was going to be a test - two weeks on the road - Phoenix to Prague to London to Philadelphia and home to Phoenix. It passed with flying colors!

        Size was perfect to fit under the plane seat ahead of me. It maintained it's comfort in carrying, no matter how many items I added. I really like the front pocket with snap cover. Great for accessories that are in need of easy reach. Internal pockets are the perfect size, and really like the zipper pocket for my wallet, passport, and everyday travel items. First section provides just enough space for a notebook, a few folders, and your electronic accessories. Second section fits perfectly my laptop and tablet. Handles are very sturdy and the shoulder strap fits nicely. As other reviews have mentioned, the zippers are rather tough, but it is welcomed quality, in hopes the zippers manage the wear and tear.

        I had my previous briefcase for almost 10 years and my expectations is the Hudson Briefcase will last well beyond that. Well done Timbuk2!

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

        Had the bag for about two weeks. Was really getting to like it a lot... Apparently so did the thieves who broke into my house. It's the only thing they grabbed. Well, they took my bike too but that wasn't in the bag ; )

        Great Quality, and I really like how it looks. If I had any complaints it's that when it is full with a laptop in it the balance is not centered. So if you strap it on your shoulder there's really only one direction it has to be. It's a quirk for sure but not a deal breaker for me.

        Initially I was concerned about how much stuff would fit comfortably in here. If you are also curious about this, I happen to have handy the insurance list of everything that it was carrying. Luckily My computer, phone and iPad were not in the bag, but they did fit in just fine with everything else.

        Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

        I bought this laptop bag as an update to my old messenger bag. the big selling points were: look/style, handles, TSA friendly, and Timbuk2 quality. I have used it for over 3 months and love the bag. it has a good amount of storage space and organization.

        My only two complaint would be another internal pocket/divider for organization. I added a Grid-it to help hold all my travel cables. And then the front pocket is not deep, so it it doesn't hold much, especially if the bag is already loaded up.

        I upgrade from classic Messenger bag (the TSA compliant one) because I travel a lot and I got to the point in my career where I was dressing to a point where the classic messenger no longer fit with my clothing. I needed to look professional in a business environment and the Hudson Briefcase completed that look for me.

        The bag is laid out very well. I took me minutes to figure out a system that works for me and I'm very happy with the amount of stuff it fits in a organized manner.

        This is a great bag except for the snaps on the outside pocket. The snaps don't hold when the bag is full. It isn't a huge deal because the flap is large enough to stay in place, but given the price of the bag I would expect them to stay together.

            Comments about Hudson Laptop Briefcase:

            I've been contemplating purchasing this briefcase for sometime and was delighted to see that my wife had given it to me as a birthday gift.

            It it well designed and has enough room to fit my 13 inch macbook pro, ipad, iphone and all their charging accessories. In addition, it also houses my notebooks, writing pads and bulky headphones, without looking too stuffed.

            It has two well placed handles. Some timbuk2 bags only have one handle which can be adequate but leaves you carrying a bag that is off balance.

            The other handy feature is that you can access the main compartments through a zipper, which makes getting to your things easy and convenient. The entire bag can also unzip to lie flat for airport security which is nice but I have only encountered one airport that let me do this without removing my laptop.

            The front pocket is great for putting things you need quick access to but having to do up the buttons can finicky and annoying when your in a rush.

            The price is steep. Too steep given that most of their other products are equally as capable of handling what the Hudson can. However, you just won't look as good doing it.

            However, I have to admit, it makes a really great gift.
