I got this briefcase for Christmas because I wanted to use it to carry my books in law school this year. I just got my schedule/book list and the briefcase won't be big enough to fit all the giant books that I will need to carry to class on a daily basis. This sucks because I know I will purchase this same briefcase in three years after I graduate. I've used it less than 10 times so it's as close to brand new as you can get. Hopefully someone on styleforum was looking at the large chestnut Saddleback briefcase and wants to save 55+ bucks.
