For our next giveaway, we've partnered again with Pad & Quill, the maker of premium MacBook, iPhone, and iPad cases and other accessories. Pad & Quill is graciously offering three bags from the company's new line-up of briefcases and backpacks, including the Leather Backpack (also available in a larger size), the Briefcase (also available in a larger size), and the Luxury Briefcase.


The Leather Backpack models are made of heavy waxed canvas and full-grain American steer leather. Each has a padded laptop sleeve, with the smaller model accommodating laptops up to 13 inches and the larger one accepting laptops up to 15 inches. The Leather Backpack will retail for $295 and the Large Leather Backpack will retail for $365. Both are available for pre-order now and will begin shipping later this month.


The Briefcase models are also made of heavy waxed canvas and full-grain leather. Both models will fit laptops up to 15 inches, with the Large Briefcase offering 25% more room compared to the Briefcase. Also scheduled to begin shipping later this month, the Briefcase will retail for $295 and the Large Briefcase will retail for $365.


The Luxury Briefcase is made entirely of leather, with a full-grain leather exterior and pigskin leather interior. It will fit laptops up to 15 inches and will begin shipping in early September with a retail price of $495.

All of these Pad & Quill bags feature leather hand-crafted by a leather artisan and have a 25-year warranty.

I wonder who won the last backpack... I liked that one more :( Though, the two tone black brief is nice looking.

Nice looking I suppose. And good quality. But I like other styles that are cheaper better.

The problem here is value. Unless you have fairly disposable funds in excess, those prices are high for the function. Not a very large market there. $275-$500 briefcases. I'll pass.

$300 is way, way, way, more than I'm willing to spend on a bag, but holy cow the Briefcase looks awesome. I don't even care that much about the full-leather, the waxed canvas and leather is awesome looking enough! (Especially with that shade of green.)

I ordered a wooden Apple Watch and IPhone charging stand from them for my husband and it is beautiful and my husband loves it. I got good service and communication from them on my order, too. As a woman who has bought a few designer bags for friends and family and myself, I think their prices look fair for the quality and design that these bags seem to offer.

This is a very nice offer indeed. Thanks!

Or don't. I've had an iPhone since the first launch daY, and many other Apple products since. My first two broken screens were in Pad and Quill cases. An iPad mini 2 and an iPhone 5s.

Their products are beautiful, yes, but they're expensive and don't protect your electronics.

I was going to complain that this is US only but then I remembered I got Civ V for free a few weeks ago so I'll just say I'm still thankful.

Whoa, I'm in. I just purchased their 12" Macbook Valet Luxury Sleeve and it is a thing of beauty! Fits my iPhone and iPad 2 too.

I've got to say that Luxury Briefcase looks like you could pass it down several generations. My daughter has a Dooney & Burke briefcase that I purchased for my spouse in the 80's it just gets better with time. The bag, not marriage ;)

Agreed. I have two bags I bought in the late 90s that I regularly return to using as newer bags have broken. Both have been dropped with laptops in them - dropped *HARD* - and the laptops survived, and the bags survived unscathed. One is just too small for a 15" laptop, the other a bit bigger than I really like; so I end up getting a newer bag, which dies.
