The Padded Computer Bag is Filson’s highest-capacity business briefcase–a heavy-duty bag that can pull double-duty as an overnight or tool bag. Introduced in 2000, as laptops were becoming commonplace, it has earned an enviable reputation for durability and utility, and still sets the standard for toughness with maximum load-carrying ability.
It’s built with industrial-strength Rugged Twill, Filson’s signature material from British Millerain that’s proven its mettle for over thirty years carrying our customer’s heaviest loads. This 2-ply by 3-ply cotton twill is lightly-waxed to create a barrier against rain, snow and mud, keeping your gear dry no matter the storm. The exceptionally-tight weave helps our Rugged Twill withstand the abrasion of sliding around in truck beds and on conveyor belts or concrete floors. The leather handles and straps are cut, burnished and edge-dyed in our Seattle factory from Bridle Leather hides vegetable-tanned by Pennsylvania’s Wickett & Craig, the iconic tannery since 1867. Each hide is slowly steeped in a special bark-tannin solution, with tallows and waxes “hot-stuffed” into it during the final stages. This eco-friendly tanning process slowly transforms cowhide into saddle-grade, pliable leather that’s equally suited for horse tack and Filson luggage. The heavy-gauge brass zipper is rustproof, virtually indestructible, and reinforced with dual strips of 12-oz. Bridle Leather. All of this is stitched together with heavy-duty, cotton-wrapped polyester thread, to ensure a briefcase that will provide decades of reliable service. The solid brass hardware is sand-cast and debossed exclusively for Filson–a fine example of what we mean when we say “Might as Well Have the Best.”
