    the only thing about A that gave me caution was the carry handle and shoulder strap mounting hardware. B looked beefier in that regard. props on the polling results... looks like we need a voter ID law...

    A! Great choice. That's the same one I would've gone with.

    Jokes aside, A was the correct choice.

    Post up some real-world pics when it arrives. I'd like to see what it truly looks like!

    I purchased briefcase A today. In the end, I was debating over A and D.

    I ruled briefcase B out because, while it looked nice, I noticed that it was made with small pieces of leather that had been sewn together rather than a single, large piece of leather. That was a warning sign to me. Plus, y'know, the whole "imported" thing.

    Briefcase D may be conservative, but I think that the style is timeless. I don't require every item in my wardrobe to be flashy.

    Thank you all again for your feedback. Crizip averted. The world is at zippeace.

    I vote c. I like the slim and sleek look.

    A or C. B is too busy, and D is boring. In all things, balance

    A, if and only if it has the quick releases, otherwise B. Voting for A.

    I'm sticking with B. I like the shape better than A and I'm not wild about the branding on A. And I'm kinda stubborn.

    I second this. My everyday briefcase has two buckles. It's pretty, but it's also a pain in the ass to get into when I'm carrying by the shoulder strap.

    Agree with these. Although I think A is the most attractive option and I voted for it on that basis, two buckles could be a PITA unless they come with some sort of quick-release function. The briefcases I use - a canvas Filson and a vintage leather Orvis - come with a button snap and a push-button release, respectively, so they are pretty easy to use.

    [Edit] I'm looking at the other images for bag A and it looks like... maybe? It has some sort of quick release system? But it's hard to tell.
    I believe that bags A and D both have quick-release clasps on their buckles. Just like papa bear.

    Game changer? !! ! ! !! ! !!! !! !!

    Thank you for all of the feedback everyone. So far I'm leaning toward A and I've crossed C off the list.

    I like A and B - both are great. I picked B cause its colour fits my style better.

    I use the following http://ii.wilsonsleather.com/fcgi-bi...=1000&cvt=jpeg which also has zippers up top (in addition to the side-buckled flap).

    I gotta say for being on the go, zippers all the way. One handed operation is also much better, as you can quickly get in and out even while keeping one hand on the wheel.

    That said, Bag A would be my vote on the selection presented.
