    Ed at Hellbrand is very easy to work with. We spent quite a bit of time working out the dimensions, and he cut and sewed a canvas test panel to check the fit. It will accomodate most 15" laptops with a little room to spare. And being CXL, the leather has some flex to it. I've never seen a case with a laptop sleeve like this one. So you could call it "experimental". However, I am very optimistic that this will work out nicely. Of course, I will post updates down the line (with photos as appropriate) to document how the bag holds up. So far everything from Hellbrand has been solid. I'm really lucky to have found them.

    The only problem I have with parcel post is that you don't know when the package will be delivered. It's really unpredictable. I'm just going to keep telling myself that my briefcase will arrive before Christmas . . . I hope . . .

    Wow. I live in central florida and had never heard of these guys. Their products look top notch. I will have to check them out!

    Did anyone ever end up getting that duffle bag that was posted earlier?
