I couldn't find any previous threads on this, and I think the trad forum is the more appropriate place to post this, so... I'm looking to getting a hardsided bag to take to work with me. I currently have a leather briefcase but it's softsided. I'm not sure of the exact differences between a briefcase or attache case, expect perhaps the size and whether there's a lid or symmetrical compartments, perhaps? Is there anyone here who uses a hardsided briefcase or attache case for work? If so, can they share what they use, the size of the case, if they find it too small or an appropriate size, what they carry in it, problems with using this sort of case (apart from the obvious fact you can't sling it on your shoulder, can't put a brolly under the straps, etc.) I'm less concerned with the price, than the usefulness of the case itself. br> Looking for something leather not aluminium and not too old fogey looking.
