    Like others have said, it doesn't stand on its own. No structure even to the edges and corners, which means things will move around more freely inside. Structurally it's more like a tote bag, but with very rectangular dimensions so it looks like a briefcase. However not to say that it's flimsy -- the leather is really nice and overall it has decent hardware.

    On the other hand; I had a 13" laptop, huge thick textbook (think IT Cert prep book), 2 T-shirts, and several different chargers in it today; and the bag still had room to spare. I'm glad I made the purchase, but I'm also a big fan of the lighter brown color

    another point in its favor...it's got a bit more room than most briefcases without showing so in its size. as mentioned i use it to lug books around and i can fit quit a bit in there (work laptop, books, lunch and thermos with room to spare)

    But wait! There's more!

    Another offering is up. You'll have to wait for that to fund for them to begin production on the cxl #8 bag.

    Is that based upon your experience with Gustin? When I look at my particular order for the briefcase that got 100% funding, it shows "Sept/Oct 2016" as the ship date while the new one shows shipping of "October 2016".

    What I know of Gustin is that they don't do production of individual offerings. They do batch production which includes batch ordering. So they don't order the fabric or leather until all offerings of that fabric or leather is complete. Early to mid October would be a good projection.

    When these come in I'd love to see more pictures. Maybe an inside out one if anyone is willing.

    I'd love to see any and all pics. Have a feeling I'll be picking one up next time they roll around.
