If your job has you out of the office and on the go, a good-looking and functional work bag isn’t a should — it’s a must. So, meet the Erin briefcase from luggage leader Tumi, a unisex, classically styled solution for toting your laptop, work documents and pretty much any other remote-office necessity.

While the word “briefcase” can conjure up old-timey images of a clunky, hard-sided accessory your dad may have carried, Tumi’s Erin is a nylon briefcase that keeps the polish without being stuffy. Simple, clean lines, gold hardware and an exterior envelope pocket make it just as posh as your favorite handbag. As would be expected from a top-of-the-line luggage purveyor, the Erin was made to log in miles: Stitched from highly durable ballistic nylon and protected with a footed bottom, consider this an investment piece, not a one-season wonder.

On the inside, find enough room for a laptop up to 15 inches and a separate compartment with three more interior pockets to keep papers and smaller items organized and easily within reach. An adjustable, removable padded shoulder strap lets you carry it hands-free, while a leather band stitched to the back of the bag has been thoughtfully placed to securely slip over the telescoped handles of a rolling suitcase. And it’s details like this that bring this work staple into the 21st century, a quiet but powerful statement that this isn’t your dad’s briefcase.
