I have owned a Filson 261 Zipper Tote for a couple weeks now. I also decided to to with the Otter Green, as most of my other bags are in the classic Tan. To be honest, it is one of my favorite Filson bags because I find it to be so versatile. I like the open-concept main compartment, but also find the four exterior pockets to offer just the right amount of organization for travel. The bag is also deceptively large...I was recently able (using packing cubes) to fit all my stuff for a 3-day trip inside it and use the bag as my only carry on. I slipped my iPad in the side-pocket, a water bottle in the end-pocket and I was good to go.
Granted, I am a very efficient packer, but it worked great. As a daily-use bag, it is also great for the gym, etc. I also own both the 256 and 257 briefcases, but I find myself using my Zipper tote the most of all. Although perhaps not as "masculine" as a true briefcase, I think that the boxy design and darker color (otter green) make it sufficiently masculine that you will have no problems.
