Amazing! I’m in love

I’ve made a 3 years research to find the right briefcase with the best quality standards. And I,ve found it here, at Saddleback leather. I have placed my order in a tuesday and the next day my briefcase was shipped over the Atlantic, in Europe. The moment when you open the parcell is unique: the smell of the leather, the real quality of the leather, stiches, the amazing feel of touching the leather, IT - IS - REALLY - UNBELIEVABLE! I’ve inspected every inch of the bag: no flaws. Perfect hand made. Now I have a new “wish list” from Saddleback leather. Thanx, Dave!

Amazing Quality

I’ve been using this bag for over a year. It has been through dozens of countries and airports. It’s versatile; it will carry my 15 inch work laptop and 13.3 inch personal laptop, along with multiple notebooks and paperwork simultaneously, or, it can be my gym bag. Love it! I will never have to buy another bag.

Great Bag

It’s awesome! Just the bag I’ve been looking for. Impeccably constructed with a high quality leather. I’ve been back twice since to buy other items. One of my new favorite stores.

The lining material in our laptop briefcases is the highest quality available, made of actual pigskin.

Design of the Leather Laptop Briefcase

This slim leather laptop Briefcase is super functional and over-engineered without a single breakable part like magnets, snaps, or zippers. And everywhere there is a stress point, we reinforce it with rivets and hidden polyester strapping. It's built with the largest pieces of leather we could design it with to minimize the number of stitch holes, and we sew at only five stitches per inch. That way, there's more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear. The leather briefcase's interior is soft, light tan pigskin leather, so light reflects inside, and it's easier to find things in low light. Darker-colored interiors are just not as easy to own. I know it's a small detail, but if you get enough of those little 1% details in a row, it adds up. It makes sense to us, and it is just another sign we thought of every detail in this design.

What All Can Fit in this Leather Laptop Bag

You can fit any 15" laptop, a notebook, an iPad, or anything else that size. It has a large capacity main compartment carrying things such as your laptop charger, charging cords, USB battery banks, and other gear and essential accessories for easy access. Easily fit your essentials and more in this rugged yet elegant laptop bag.

The leather briefcase can also be used as a full grain leather messenger bag or a leather backpack.

Materials in our Leather Briefcases

Our leather is the strongest we can find (full-grain boot leather, but thicker), and the pigskin lining is stronger than cow leather. If I'm ever president, I will pass legislation that all leather briefcases are made with full grain leather. Our hardware is made of 316 Stainless Steel which is over-the-top strong. Each clip was tested to hold a 750 lbs. bag of cats over a cliff. It's the metal of choice for if your life depends on it. The thread is a strong industrial marine-grade polyester thread in which the sun doesn't deteriorate like nylon does when it hits it. Honestly, no leather briefcase is as strong and durable as this one.

Full Grain Leather Laptop Briefcases

Full Grain Leather is used because we are unlike other briefcases you might find in the department store. When creating high quality, elegant leather laptop briefcase, you want the finest leather money can buy. However, it is more than just preferences; it is about strength, durability, and beauty. Our Full Grain Leather Briefcase has all of those features. It is the strongest leather that money can buy and will last a lifetime with proper care.

Lining Material in our Laptop Briefcases

The lining material we use in our laptop briefcases is also the highest quality available. We lined our leather briefcases with actual pigskin; what else would you use in designing the best briefcases? Pigskin is much stronger than cowhide. It is also smoother, so your laptop will easily slide in and out.

The Leather Laptop Briefcase is designed to be super functional and over-engineered, with no breakable parts such as magnets, snaps, or zippers.

Stitching in our Leather Briefcases

The stitching of our leather briefcases is done with the strongest thread available, marine grade polyester thread. This type of thread can withstand the elements and will not deteriorate in the sun as nylon thread does. Polyester is horrible as a bed sheet, but it doesn't get any better for an application like this. It is like hot sauce; it's great to dip your chips in, but not so great as an eye drop. That analogy might be a little out there, but I think you'll get it. Don't purchase polyester bedding or wear anything made of polyester, but enjoy its strength in your leather laptop bag.

Functionality of these Leather Briefcases

Our leather briefcase is actually a functional leather laptop backpack for when you're commuting or walking in the airport and need your hands free. It even has a false bottom to hide your passport and spare cash. Hopefully, you don't use it to hide drugs. Drugs are bad, and you shouldn't use them. On the exterior, there is a big wide front pocket under the flap with an almost as big pocket behind it. It fits laptops, notepads, and files. On the inside, there is a big back interior laptop sleeve for 13" laptops and iPad Pros.

This leather briefcase has many features, including device pockets, interior pockets, and a side pocket for a water bottle.

Also Works As Full Grain Leather Messenger Bags

Some people like to use these as leather messenger bags. We don't judge. To each their own. If that is your thing, then, use it as a messenger bag. It works just as well for that purpose. Just because we designed it as a briefcase doesn't mean you have to use it as one.

Yes, It Doubles As A Leather Backpack

It is as simple as unhooking the leather shoulder strap, then pushing it through the ring on the top, and then connecting the ends to the bottom D-Rings, and now you have a leather backpack. These backpacks are perfect for times like a long hike, if you are also trying to carry your luggage, or if you just want to give your shoulders a break.

Features Of This Leather Briefcase

When you shop for a Leather Briefcase to use as a laptop bag, either for everyday carry or just for short trips with your 15" laptop, you want to ensure it has all the features you need. Especially when you are looking at one that will last you 100 years. I believe we took everything into account, from the design of each pocket to the shoulder strap; nothing was done without serious planning.

Our leather laptop briefcase is the strongest and most durable you will find.

Device Pockets

The large front pocket can fit smaller laptops, notebooks, files, and other paperwork. Behind that exterior pocket is a hidden pocket with almost just as large a capacity that you can use to even carry another device in.

Interior Pockets

Inside, you will find that we placed two side pockets for pens and pencils; we put one on each end so it would be easier to grab whatever you need without fumbling around.

A Side Pocket For Your Water Bottle

There is a side pocket to slide your water bottle right into without having to open up the whole bag. This makes it easy to carry and access your water or whatever your preferences of drinks might be easy, without even taking the briefcase off your shoulder. But, of course, it is not just for water bottles; you can also use it to hold your phone, power hub, or whatever accessories you feel fit in there.

Key Strap

We also placed a key strap that falls right into the briefcases, so it will be super easy to grab your keys and go. No more fishing around for your keys at the bottom of your bag. This makes the keys easy to access when you finish that business meeting and want to jump into your car and celebrate the great meeting with your customers. Not everyone likes to fill their pockets with things like keys and change and such, so we thought of every detail in this style of a leather briefcase.

Main Compartment Laptop Area

You will find a perfect pocket for your 15" laptop in the main compartment. With the softer light brown pigskin lining, it will slide right in. Of course, this briefcase can hold quite a bit more than just your laptop, but we designed it with business people in mind who travel often and need to have their hands free.

A Leather Briefcase with a False Bottom

Below your main interior compartment is a strip of leather that makes a false bottom. This serves to add strength to support your laptop, as well as a hidden area. You can keep extra cash, a passport, ID, a gold coaster, whatever you like can go down there, and if you get robbed, they might take everything out of your briefcase, but they usually will not take the briefcase. This is because these briefcases stand out. When you send the search party, it will not take long to find some piece of garbage looking out of place with such a fine briefcase.

A Buckle Closure

The buckle closure works just like a belt buckle. You slide it through and secure it down. It is easy enough to open and close, yet harder than some cheap zipper for a thief to open it up and go shopping in your leather briefcase.

A Bedtime Story Continued from the Flight Bag page

So we're on a family vacation at this place called Mike's Camp on an island off the Northern Coast of Kenya, 20 miles from Somalia. It was super cool, and time to unplug, so I left the briefcase in Rwanda but brought a leather backpack and my man bag Indiana Canvas Satchel.

 

On our last full day there, at 7 am, we met a couple from Scotland who had sailed to the camp on a dhow, and their dreadlocked Kenyan captain was with them. I went over to introduce myself since he seemed like a nice enough fellow, but I knew something was probably wrong since he already had a beer in his hand and his eyes were empty.

 

Just after noon, coming back from a seashell hunting trip gone bad, the family wouldn't stop whining about it because "the sand was too hot" and "we don't have enough water," we met the captain again at the dock. So I walked up to him and told him, "I just feel like God wants me to tell you something." He drew close and replied, "Go ahead and tell me, man." So I did. I told him, "Omar, I feel like God wants me to tell you that he's really in love with you and that he thinks about you all the time and that he really wants to have a personal relationship with you." He stared at me for a minute and then asked, "Can we talk about this later tonight after dinner? I am really interested in what you said". I agreed.

 

And then he said to me, "Hey, I'm going to sail the dhow over to a little village later today for something. Would you like to sail with your family there with me? There's a nice beach for the kids to play on". So Suzette and I had heard of a little village not far away on the island that was supposed to be cool, so we accepted his kind offer to sail us there.

 

Without knowing, he took us to a little village on the mainland where the police the day before told us that the terrorist group al-Shabaab was alive and well. We knew that witchcraft was strong there, and then he told me the recent history of foreign tourists being abducted, dragged to Somalia, and murdered¦ but not until we got on shore and started walking. Finally, he paraded our barefoot family through the village on the road directly to Somalia, 20 miles away. Read the rest of the story on the Indiana Canvas Satchel page.
