Lockable/Secure attache case
For those of you that travel, or carry sensitive paperwork in general - do you have any suggestions on a lockable/secure attache case. Something that isn't huge, but would be good to carry a laptop, some accessories and some paperwork. Right now, the nylon laptop backpack is doing it's fair share for transporting all of this stuff, but I was looking for something with a lock on it.
I know samsonite has a pretty good line of stuff like this, any suggestions?

I remember that Pelican had a laptop case...but that may be overkill...their cases are a bit heavy.A society that makes war against its police had better learn to make friends with criminals. - unknown

Haliburton makes a very nice laptop case.In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Pelican is not that heavy and comes in different colors so it doen't look like a cop case. Check out the web site.

Mongo, you hit the nail on the head with Samsonite.
Samsonite Genesis 5 Attache. (Hard Exterior) I have been using this for over two years and highly recommend it. Enough of room for even the larger laptops with power cords in the main compartment. Not to mention the expandable folders. PLUS the velcro pouch. In addition to the netted web. Did I mention the additional velcro pouch for your laptop light or dial-up cable accessories. PLUS MORE! Downside: It is pricey but it offers longevity. You will not need a new one for quite some time and their warranty is exceptional.
For the record, I am not a salesman nor do I own stock in the company I do appreciate good quality when I see it!
On another note, I'd stay away from the leather based briefcases because the exterior tends to tear when it is brushed up against a rough edge/sharp corner. What about the times when it starts to rain and you are not prepared with an umbrella?

MakeItHappen, does that Samonsite have a lock on it? Doesn't seem to, but wanted to be sure. I like the looks of that one but really need something with a lock too.
Halliburton cases are nice, but I don't need it to also shirk gunfire so that is a bit overkill.
The pelican cases are nice too, didn't even think of them. We actually use their bigger cases for some of our forensic equipment. I'll check around for prices on them. Thanks everybody!
