I think its time to go back to the 256. Still need my training wheels
Dude that f.ckin sucks, I feel for you. I still have both briefcases and remain undecided. Just used the 257 during a 10-day road trip and it was great. Must remember to ZIP IT UP.

I also ordered a medium duffle, figured better too big than too small. Tan 257 for laptop/books, tan Pullman for carry on and brown duffle for road trips and checked luggage.
