When my last briefcase was stole from my van, I had to purchase one for work in a hurry. Unfortunately, I did not have much money since I was between paychecks, so I bought this handy material replacement:0) for a FRACTION of what my leather breifcase cost me.
I have to say that I LOVE this bag! It has a zipper compartment on the outside which is perfect of a calculator and pens. Then attached to the outside is a small accordian file that I keep my blank notes and evals. And inside the zipper case, I had plenty of room for all my patients demographic sheets (plus lots more).
They ONLY thing is that I have already broke it :0( It did last about 6 months but now the file folder has ripped off the side...I probably stuffed it too full! I have to say though, that I am particularly tough when it comes to my briefcases...I do lug them around for 8 hours into and out of the office and homes, Monday through Friday. So, I guess for $20, it did pretty good.
I recommend it and in fact plan to buy another just like it next week:0)
