In our review of Bostenten men’s leather business bags we’re taking a specific look at this spiffy leather shoulder-strap briefcase, and in this section we’re particularly focused on its design. Unlike the typical image when comes to mind when you think of a briefcase – for instance Jack&Chris Men’s Leather Briefcase – this unique bag is designed almost as a 3-in-1 and includes the storage open/close aspect of a briefcase with the protective padding of a laptop bag as well as the depth and functionality of messenger bag (or handbag). Because of this the design includes two methods of carry: via handle or adjustable shoulder strap. The design further features multiple compartment’s for added organization, and especially for separating snacks/etcetera from more expensive technologies like a laptop computer. All in all, this briefcase features a highly functional design that’s not just useful, but at a glance also very fashionable.
Other brands will have a hard time competing with the storage space allotted in this single briefcase design. It’s not your average flat-bottomed briefcase with minimal storage capacity and ability to organize, in fact this briefcase even expands for up to 10% more room for files, folders, or your IPAD along with your computer. The briefcase contains one large inner compartment which is padded for added security and easily holds your less than 17-inch laptop (or your IPAD, IPone, A4 file, and other business accessories). Additional design features provide this bag with a cell phone pocket, one inner zippered pocket for writing instruments/etcetera, and two 2 exterior pockets (one with zipper closure and the other with magnetic). The exterior pockets are a customer favorite as they allow instant access to things like ID badges, cellphone, car keys, etcetera.
This genuine leather briefcase features two methods of carrying, an adjustable shoulder strap made from black durable nylon webbing, and a leather stitched carry handle which is traditional to the briefcase design. BOSTENTEN has included a massive central storage space as well as 5 additional pockets for added storage as well as added organizability. No backpack is this stylish, even if it does offer more central room. Other features include long ease of use zipper pulls, hooks for removing the shoulder strap, and the embossed BOSTENTEN logo design so that you can show off your one-of-a-kind briefcase wherever you walk.
Shoulder weight is often a concern with this type of messenger bag – after all, why do you think so many professionals still carry backpacks into the office? However, with this particular design Bostenten focused their design efforts on equal distribution of weight with pockets from and back, as well as organized weight in the center compartment. With an adjustable body the briefcase strap is made to situate weight comfortably against you side when not being carried by the handle, and because of this the briefcase easily holds between 10 and 20 pounds with no strain on the material of the bag. The shipping weight of the product is extremely light at 2.7 pounds, and it will easily accompany you onto a plane as either your carry-on, or just as a personal item in addition to your suitcase.
All BOSTENTEN briefcases are made from cow split leather. Cow split leather comes from cow’s skin, genuine leather. It is harmless to human health and more durable than vinyl, while vinyl is all made of chemical material and irritating to human. It is also often coated with various colors and patterns to create a unique handbag that no one else owns except for you, and the moderate genuine leather is soft and anti-scratch for even more durability. To create a vintage and noble look, the leather is often polished and oiled which makes the surface shinier and sleeker. The more you use the briefcase, the more retrospective it will be. Other durability features include the nylon shoulder strap with brass alloy hooks, along with brass pull tab zippers; now, these aren’t as durable as aluminum, but for every day to day use they shouldn’t pose any trouble. The zip top closure includes a single heavy-duty zipper which opens and closes smoothly to negate your belongings falling out.
All leathers for this style of briefcase are made from genuine cow leather and stained to match a specific color upon choice while you’re checking out, these style options feature over 6 different shades on a spectrum of brown and black with classifications and color grades listed. It is the professional opinion of the brand that these suitcases actually appreciate in value as the leather ages, so even 5 years down the line your work bag will be a striking classic. Other style options exist for smaller briefcases from this company, but we suggest for the best business suitcase that you go with the full sized 17.3”. All hardware is made from genuine metal durable enough for daily use, and the retro brass alloy colored gun metal silver is very handsome looking. Also, it’s worth noting that this briefcase is actually quite fantastic for coming in brown or black, where other companies typically only sell just black or just brown; Samsonite’s Leather Expandable Briefcase is a great example of this limitation.
This cow split leather original measures (L)17.32″ x (W)4.52″ x (H)12″ inches and is the ideal fit for a laptop or tablet at or under 17 inches. It’s perfectly fitted for folders and keeping important company papers crisp, while extra padded and thick enough to protect electronics and other paraphernalia safe against water damage. For longer travels by air this briefcase is the perfect size to accompany you onto the plane as a personal item, and still allows you to travel with an appropriately sized carry-on bag. For women, remember that many airlines are no longer counting a purse hung with a briefcase as 1 personal item; so pack the smaller purse into this much bigger briefcase before boarding.
