If you haven’t already gone paperless and travels quite a bit, then we suppose you still need a document bag, or in this case, a document case for all your papers and writing materials. If so, here’s one coming from Best Made Co., dubbed Gfeller Document Case, that should appeal to style-conscious, paper-loving folks. Made by Idaho-based Gfeller Casemakers, whom are known for making outstanding leather goods for archaeologists and geologists since 1946, the Gfeller Document Case is a sight to behold and is an object of beauty, one which we would described as the aristocrat of document bags.
Crafted from vegetable tanned leather, the case is hand-stitched with a wax cord and features molded American russet skirting leather, brass hardware, and is designed to fit maps, papers, notebooks, and even an iPad or a 13-inch MacBook Air – if you are not entirely anti-gadgets. It is a simple case, minimalistic as some would call it, but none-the-less, classy. Very classy, actually. It does not hide any secret compartment (this is no James Bond anyways) and it does not try to assimilate your gadgets into it like many bags of today claimed to do. We would love to call it no frills, but then again, the price speaks otherwise.
As beautiful as it is, it does come with a hefty price tag, which you are looking at $325. That’s over 300 bucks for a document carrier, but if style and quality are your prerogative, then I guess sacrificing drinking sessions at your local watering hole is a must.
