Waxed Canvas Briefcase is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but pictures are deceiving First of all, I will say that this briefcase, from a size perspective is exactly what I was looking for. It's not too thick, and looks great. However, I will say that I was thrown off when it arrived, because the "waxed" material doesn't look as it does on the website pictures. I actually thought my bag was defective and/or used because the waxed canvas material shows marks whenever anything rubs up on it. But apparently that's just the way it. I would give this briefcase full marks if the website pictures were indicative of how it actually was. Otherwise great though. Tried to attach photos, but the review won't let me...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and Handy This is a very well-made and sturdy briefcase that doesn't look formal. Perfect if your work environment is "business casual." Handy pockets inside, nice shoulder strap. The only thing I don't like is that it isn't very fat; that is, the front and back are not all that far apart. I tried to carry a Thermos, pair of shoes, and paperwork and everything would not fit. Paperwork alone fits perfectly. So think about how you want to use it and whether you need something fatter. Read the dimensions carefully.

I've tried uploading the pictures that I sent to LL Bean but the website won't upload the photos...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed This briefcase arrived folded in half and stuffed into a box that was too small for it to fit properly. The canvas was scuffed with white marks showing, whether the result of how it was packed or some defect in the canvas I cannot say. The color seems a bit washed out, but it is sometimes hard to judge color on a web-site. There seems to be little or no wax on the canvas and just a light touch seems to add another mark. Maybe this item is defective or maybe this is how it is supposed to be. A duffle in navy is expected any day and I will be curious to see the condition. The bag itself is attractive and seems quite functional. The printed lining is an unnecessary touch and makes it look too busy, in my opinion. I would prefer a solid color. I am generally very happy with my purchases from L.L. Bean but it seems they did a poor job on this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waxed briefcase Very pleased with this product. Sleek yet holds all the basics. You can tell the outside material will look better with age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek canvas briefcase This item was a replacement of a well-worn case (nylon fabric) that bit the dust. I am fond of canvas material & decided to take a chance with this one. It's crafted with materials that appear rugged, yet attractive--there is lining inside to support extended use. It's design allows you to store stuff in several pockets in addition to an iPad or MacBook Pro, or other things that brief cases are noted for. If you desire a case that is head & shoulders above the general ones you'd find online, this one is for you. Treat yourself to the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Briefcase Gave to my brother for Christmas! He loved it, even more so because his initials were on it! Good quality material, thick enough to protect a laptop and extra room for portfolio. Shoulder strap a plus since most leather briefcases don't have one.
