    I bought the scholar 3-compartment bag with padded laptop compartment a few years ago. It's held up well, but I don't use it too often. A tad bulky. It also looks better without the strap (the strap is too thin and looks odd) - so you're giving up convenience for style.

    What color did you get your scholar in? Can you suggest a better bag within the same price range?

    Not a huge fan for an office briefcase, but a nice bag nonetheless.

    +1. Looks too large and the buckles would be too cumbersome to undo.

    There's nothing wrong with the briefcase, but I prefer something a little simpler.

    I like it, although maybe not in black. I have purchased other items from customhide before and have been very satisfied with the construction and quality. I have been seriously considering the 1945 Army briefcase from them for a year now.

    No, not a fan of the two vertical straps.

    The round top kills it. Nothing wrong with the two vertical straps, that's sort of a traditional style, but the round top makes it look like Ralph Cramden's lunch box.
