    Slim Laptop Bag / Briefcase

    I’m looking for suggestions for a new work laptop bag/briefcase. I currently use a coach double zip messenger bag that I’ve had for several years and it was useful for my law school books and laptop. It’s become pretty worn out and quite bulky now that I don’t need as much space. I’m looking for something slimmer yet professional and preferably canvas over leather.

    Everything I find is like $400. I was hoping to get closer to $100 or $200 max if possible.

    The style I’m looking for is something just like the Jack Spade tech oxford slim just more affordable. https://m.eastdane.com/tech-oxford-s...1511714743.htm

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Amazon has Filson original briefcases in several colors for ~ $260-270. Over your limit, but not too bad. I have a slightly larger version that I use every day and will outlast my career.

        What about something from Herschel?

          Have you tried checking your local Marshalls or TJ Maxx? I've seen quite often some decent slimmer work bags from a variety of brands in the 79-150 range. Since workbags take a beating and there isn't a specific one you have your eye on you might find something there that fits your budget and needs.

            I have one from Tom Bihn that is similar. I've had mine about 3 years and it has held up great with regular use. $80

              I was about to come suggest the exact Jack Spade you listed. I use it as my daily and it's pretty great and puts up with a lot of use/abuse and still looks great. I got mine under $300 from Amazon during a black friday last year, for what it's worth.

                wholeheartedly second this recommendation. I have a navy one that I've been using for almost 2 years at this point, and it still looks and feels brand new. It is fantastic. It is above your price point, but will last you forever, if you're willing to splurge on it. I paid about $270 for mine.

                  Can't go wrong with the filson original briefcase. I have one in tan and paid <$230. Just need to wait for a good 30% off sale.

                    I had been recently looking for a "new" briefcase online, and I can vouch that there are a handful of Jack Spade bags on eBay. There is a "new with tags" gray oxford tech bag which I'm pretty sure is the model that you linked for $149 right now.

                        I just got this last week. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

                        Really nice and what i love is it stands and doesnt fall over. Larger briefcase but awesome functionality.
