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.

$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.)
