This is a good bag, but I bought it as a replacement for an earlier version which had some additional useful features which had been dropped from the new design: the document side-pocket used to be an external pouch; now a bulky wallet or glasses case causes it to bulge inwards, reducing space in the main compartment; the previous version had a 2 inch expansion through unzipping a bellows; and the previous top handles directly lifted the sides, whereas the load is now carried across the zips.

In short still good, but not quite as good as it was.

I was hoping this would be the solution to my search for a professional-looking bag for meetings that is comfortable for carrying on long walks through airports. Instead, this is "almost" good for both uses, but misses the mark.

This is a bag with an identity crisis - it's not sure if it wants to be a backpack or a briefcase, and instead of excelling at both it fails at both.

The laptop and tablet compartments only work in the vertical orientation and are difficult to access when the bag is carried like a briefcase.

The logo is huge - not a professional look for business uses.

The bag is lightweight - which is a great help for business travel and long walks to airport gates.

The shoulder straps have chest buckles, which are unnecessary and dangerous for this product. Chest straps may make sense for long wilderness hikes, but they make you more vulnerable when you are walking through mean city streets and subways.

The shoulder strap is comfortable but the attachment points make the bag sag outwards away from the body of the user, making it more cumbersome.

Frankly, I have a list of a dozen improvements Eagle Creek should make to this bag. My recommendation is to wait until the next update.

Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

I was looking for a professional looking replacement for my Ogio Newt 15 backpack after the zipper failed. When I came across the Business Brief I thought that I had found the perfect match!

After the bag arrived I started checking out all of the features. The first thing I noticed was how cheap the material looked and felt. Once I began to transfer everything to the new bag I quickly realized the short comings of this bag.

Only one of the front compartments had organized bockets for your wallet, phone, two pens and a mesh zipper pocket. The rest were just vast cavernous pouches to throw stuff into only to be jumbled up, scattered and eventually dumped as you transition from brief to backpack. Very poor design makes for an extremely clumsy experience.

    Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

    I have never had such a well thought out pack. I use it to carry my Mac Book Air and iPad Air and they fit perfect. I thought it was going to be little small,as my last pack (another company) was about the same size. I put everything and more into the pack and more and still have room left over. The only suggestions I would make would to put a small pocket on the front, for a phone, and a sunglass carrier on top. I would I've this pack an 8.

      Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

      Now on my second bag. First bag was near-perfect as a travel briefcase - good shoulder straps and capacious, more professional-looking than a rucksack. After several years and many, many, openings the zip on the side pouch wore through the fabric. Second bag the newer design - still good, but the side pocket is no longer an external pouch and so even a thick wallet will restrict space in main pocket and strain the zip.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

        I needed a better bag for my business commute, and this one is it! What I like about this bag is the three ways of carrying it - as a backpack, messenger bag and briefcase. I tend to use it as a backpack most often, as I have a fairly good walk to/from the office, but also wanted the other options as well. For its size, it is amazing how much fits, and there are a number of different areas within the bag to put things in. The areas for the laptop (I use a 15.6" which fits great) and tablet do a great job of protection. Well-designed and well-constructed - my favorite bag!

        Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

        The reasons this otherwise glorious bag is not getting five stars:

        1) I'd prefer a separate zippered compartment for the computer.
        2) It Isn't as cleverly organized as the size-small laptop backpack that Eagle Creek has discontinued (tragically).
        3) In particular, I'm missing the side pockets for the water bottle and sunglasses. But I get that this is a dressier, briefcase-style bag, so I didn't weigh this particular objection very heavily.
        4) The painful shoulder strap needs some padding. Eagle Creek did far better with the backpack I'm replacing, which cost considerably less than this one. The handles are long enough to use on the shoulder if one isn't wearing a coat or jacket, but they are also uncomfortable. I'm finding I need the shoulder strap to carry this bag, so immediate modification was necessary.
        5) The toggled zipper pulls look flimsy, as though they will break; there aren't back-up metal pulls. I imagine this can be fixed as needed, but they should be sturdier at this price.

        I am mourning the decline of my wonderful small computer-handbag Eagle Creek backpack, which met with some glittery gold paint and is finally wearing out at the straps. After several years, it no longer looks crisp, and it has never looked terribly professional. And if one inserts a 13-inch Macbook in that model, there is only limited room for other things. It was cleverly designed for maximum versatility for a limited amount of stuff, yet unpacking the thing to get to items at the bottom of the bag was annoying. It was marketed for a 15-inch laptop. That's hard to imagine. Maybe with little to nothing else in the bag.

        Now for this new bag. It's light and sturdy (except for that shoulder strap). For the most part, I'm quite pleased. It looks professional, if not dressy. So that's a clear improvement over the small computer backpack. One could bring this to a special event and not feel too casual, which is how I felt about the other bag. It's also, due to its briefcase shape, super easy to get to everything in the bag, also a clear improvement. It's about the same size as the small backpack, which is the size I need, so no complaints there. This is not a large bag and would be perfect for a 13-inch laptop. I would not recommend it for 15-inch laptops if you want to carry a lot of other stuff with it. But it would be okay just for the gear alone and a book and some files.

        What I can fit in this bag:

        In the outer pocket: USB cords and odds and ends for the computer and my camera. (It's a smallish pocket.)

        In the internal pocket: lozenges, tissues, and other personal items. (About the same size as the outer pocket.)

        In the computer pocket: 11-inch Macbook Air (in a protective sleeve), 10-inch iPad (also in a sleeve).

        In the tablet sleeve: Kindle (It's big enough for a large iPad but not sturdy until secured with the velcro strap that also secures the computer.)

        Two gadget sleeves: iPhone, and Lumix point and shoot camera.

        Two pens, each in its own slot.

        In the main compartment, contents of my purse, file folder pouch, sunglasses, computer cord pouch.

        I'm a writer and take my gear with me everywhere I go. This bag looks great and is the perfect size. It will fit under the seat as a carry-on. The shoulder strap problem is easily remedied by buying a guitar strap gel pad for about $12.

        In a perfect world, I would love it if Eagle Creek would re-issue the small-sized laptop backpack that was so well reviewed several years ago. It's such a great bag, and its problems could be fixed easily enough. Maybe dress it up a bit, improve access to gear in the main compartment. Those of us with 11 to 13-inch Macbook Airs need a bag in between the tablet bags and the sturdier backpacks, and we need to be able to take the bags to meetings and receptions without looking out of place. I love Eagle Creek stuff. Hope you can and will address this niche in the market.

        Seriously, though, this bag is a workable and attractive compromise, and it will serve my purposes well enough. I'm glad to have it.

        Comments about Eagle Creek Straight Up Business Brief RFID:

        I used this on airplane trips on multiple airlines and it fits beautifully under every seat--even the small storage area often found under aisle seats. The computer fit is snug but it worked for mine. The rest of the bag is very roomy. I was able to fit my computer, my work papers, my quart-size bag of liquids, a small purse, and another small bag (maybe 5x4x3?) holding some carry-on essentials. The shoulder strap needs a shoulder pad--it gets twisted and can dig into your shoulder. There is not a dedicated area for papers; the outside pocket is too small. and there is no divider for papers inside the bag. If they add a shoulder pad and make the outside pocket big enough to accommodate 8-1/2 x 11 papers, this bag will be perfect!

          I used it for a short trip to carry my laptop and work related items (folders, cords, pens). I like the compartments and the safety features; also the structure for easy airport security check-in. I had the older version; noted the newer version is bulkier and more masculine in appearance and style.
