    Hey-

    I hope all is well. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with or thoughts on the Filson Leather Field Satchel?

    I'm a young attorney who walks about a mile to the office every day and I'm starting to bring work back and forth. Not a ton, but a good amount of paperwork. I'm looking for something interesting, classy, but not too delicate looking.

    My concerns are that it might be too small, and that it might be too heavy. I can't find a shop in my area with one in stock to hold, so before I order one and maybe return it, I figured I'd ask around.

    Any takers?

    Here's what I'm looking at:

    Common complaint here is that they run a bit small. Lawyers especially have noted that sometimes the FFS isn't enough to carry what they need.

    I bought this leather bag to carry legal files and folders to and from court:

    It's large, a little heavy, but serves its intended purpose.

    I'm on the lookout for a bag that's a bit smaller and would buy another model Custom Hide but I'm not too thrilled with the leather they use. The problem with most bags that I find are that they use buttom tab closures (which are hidden under the buckles) that almost always become undone.
