Incredible 18” briefcase

I was so excited to give this briefcase to my husband for his 50th (FIFTY!) birthday! I couldn’t wait. I gave it to him a few days early. We are repeat customers with SaddleBack. I’m actually too ashamed to list all of the items we have purchased over the years, just know that there has been zero disappointment. They did not fall short with this briefcase either. He was SO very happy when he opened it. He has been carrying a different style of theirs that I bought him almost 7 years ago. It still looks like it did the day he received it. I never thought he would like anything more UNTIL he opened this 18” grandfather briefcase! He says it makes him feel like Indiana Jones!! :) The quality is superb, the color (tobacco) is beautiful, and I swear this thing is near bulletproof! If you’re on the fence, just buy it! For reference, my husband is 6’4 and 260 pounds, built like a linebacker. I’m always afraid things will appear too small on him, but the 18” is perfect. Thank you, SB. You’ve done it again!

The 18" full grain leather briefcase is a piece of functional art. This case was designed to resemble the old classic briefcases our grandfathers would have carried.

Design of this Hard Sided Leather Briefcase

The 18" Grandfather Briefcase was designed to resemble the old classic briefcases our grandfathers would have carried. Back in the old days, a man would buy a hardside briefcase and know it would last his entire life. Now you can have that same security with a hard sided briefcase that is just as strong and durable. This leather briefcase is like they used to make them, but better.

Grandfather Hard Briefcase Materials

We used all the best materials we could find to make this the best hard sided leather briefcase. From the best leather you can get, full grain leather, to the really strong thread and lining, we spared no expense in making sure this briefcase will last a lifetime.

Full Grain Leather

We only use the toughest leather we can find on our leather bags, and this briefcase is no different. It’s genuine full-grain leather, which means the top layer is still there. The top layer is the strongest layer on the hide and acts the same as shingles on a house.

Pigskin Lining in our Large Leather Briefcase

The entire inside is lined with pigskin; believe it or not, pigskin is even stronger than cow skin. Plus, it’s soft and smooth, so whatever you put inside of it will be protected.

Stitching in this Hardside Briefcase

We take no shortcuts when it comes to sewing everything together on this leather briefcase. We sew using only 5 stitches per inch. Doing this reduces the number of holes in the leather and the potential for a tear.

Really Strong Thread

The thread we use is a really strong UV-resistant polyester. It’s the same stuff they use to make parachutes and ship sails. If it can hold up to those conditions, we are confident it will hold this briefcase together for at least 100 years.

Hardware That Your Life Can Depend On

All of our hardware is custom surgical grade 316 stainless steel. It is what you want to use if your life depended on it. This particular alloy

The Functionality of the Large Leather Briefcase

The 18” Grandfather Briefcase can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Everyday carry into the office, a lawyer's briefcase, or a way to have strangers stare at you and wonder where you got your hardside briefcase.

Interior of the Large Hard Sided Briefcase

This large hard sided leather briefcase has ample room in the main compartment. You can fit a large laptop or a few smaller laptops. You can even fit a million dollars if that is what you need to do. If a leather briefcase was made to hold $1,000,000, this would be it. You might even purchase a pair of handcuffs to cuff the briefcase to your wrist and carry it around the airport or a family reunion. Keep them guessing.

Two Large Pockets Inside The Large Briefcase

There are also two large pockets inside the briefcase. This can fit laptop chargers and charger cords, thumb drives with important documents or sensitive content, ammo, knives, your passport, or anything else you might need quick access to.

A Briefcase For Men

This is a gentleman's briefcase. This leather design means business. When you walk around carrying it, you will hear them talk, saying such good things about you, such admiration. Remember, with great admiration comes great responsibility. Use this newfound respect and admiration to do something good with your life.
