Small briefcase to fit into carry-on?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I hate luggage. I mostly travel with a GoRuck that's much smaller than max carryon size, and I still loathe having to carry it around once I reach my destination. So I want a thin and light briefcase/folio that can fit into the backpack's laptop compartment (15'' size). A shoulder strap would be a nice bonus. Also, something that looked classic and/or very high quality would be good, since the backpack is so rugged and practical. Price is not a major consideration. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

I had exactly the same issues with my GR1.
It came down to one of these 2 : (bought the Filofax)

Thanks. I've also been looking at this sort of thing, but it strikes me as a bit fuddy-duddy:

Great functionality with the three-side opening though.

Hmm, how about the La Portegna "Fat" Carter or the slimmer Carter?

The Fat Carter is sold at No Man Walks Alone here: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/fat-carter-briefcase-sol-brown-leather.html


I don't know who stocks the Carter, but here it is on La Portegna's site: http://laportegna.com/products/leather-briefcase-carter#.VlOAcHarQdU

^ good thought. Those are a bit heavy but I seem to recall they also had some good folios. I'm partly based in London so I've been to their Marylebone shop. I have their passport cover and like it. I'm now considering this, though I'm still holding out for something less fuddy-duddy and with a shoulder strap:
