Good looks and large capacity define the Navigator. Down the center, the Navigator is a pretty true briefcase. It is among the largest briefcases in our line. The main compartment offers space for a widescreen laptop/notebook computer and files. There are spaces for writing utensils, paper files, notebooks, a phone, the day to day stuff a person may need on the job. On each side of center there are huge pockets secured with twin leather straps. These aren't just pockets for papers, you can put big bulky stuff in there too like rain gear and a change of clothes. The Navigator spans a gap for travelers who want one bag to act as briefcase and luggage.

    Navigator bag

    Posted by Paul W. on Jun 19th 2019

    Great work bag. Room for laptop, books, lunch, snacks. Solid construction, a tad heavy, but we go back to being solid. Should last about 40 years, give or take.

    Excellent Bag/Briefcase

    Posted by Derek on Jun 4th 2019

    Very functional and looks great. Good mix of professional while looking unique. Only function I miss is a good place to put a water bottle or thermos. A collapsible pocket in the main compartment would be very helpful.

    Briefcase that can be your 'do everything' bag

    Posted by Todrab on Oct 24th 2018

    I have owned the Navigator for about 2 years now. In that time, I have carried it daily to work as a briefcase, used it for weekend trips, carried a half a case of wine in it, and generally just abused it. And it has taken all of it with no issues. Couple of things about it. I have a couple frost river pouches that I use to organize bits (like headphones and phone chargers, or toiletries when I travel), and I have a generic laptop sleeve to cushion and protect by laptop. I do this because it’s pretty simple inside - a big open area with a few side pockets. When you load it up like I do, it is nice to have a few organizer bits. The side pockets are very useful when you use the bag as luggage. They expand the capacity a bit, and are a great place for shoes or toiletries. After two years, the canvas looks new, the leather on the handles is wearing well (although I really need to clean it), and the brass - REAL brass - hardware is just now beginning to gain a patina that looks great. Only things I would consider changing would be I would have ordered the all leather shoulder strap and I sort of want a leather bottom. But only sort of. It is a great bag - one I anticipate owning for decades, and I can’t recommend it enough.

    Durable, stylish, and roomy

    Posted by Pat Lewis on Jul 24th 2017

    I received this bag as a gift about 7 months ago and have been enjoying it ever since. I use it as my daily briefcase for walking around town as well as a weekender bag when traveling, so it's basically two bags in one. When you feel this bag, the quality is clear--the canvas is heavy and thick, the stitching feels really secure, and even the hardware has a nice heft to it. That all does make the bag a little heavy even when empty, but the upside is that it holds a ton and maintains a nice shape no matter how much (or little) you've got inside.

    High-quality with style

    Posted by Jeremy Smith on Jul 19th 2017

    The navigator is exactly as advertised. It functions well as a briefcase, with space for my tablet or laptop, the days lunch, and other daily necessities. I have also used the bag as a carry-on while flying around the world. It has plenty of space for a long weekend and the side pockets expand to provide considerably more space for whatever you need to talk away. as a farm boy transplanted to the city, I also appreciate the bags rugged style. Nothing but positive comments about this product from myself and everyone who sees this item.
