INCREDIBLE BAG - AMAZING!!!!!

I was in the market for a good quality leather bag that would last me a long time and would stand up to the abuse of daily use. I also wanted a bag that would be small, light and practical. I looked everywhere and could not quite find what I was looking for. I had purchased previously the small leather organizer bag and a coin holder from Saddleback and was so impressed with the build quality that I returned to see if by chance they had the bag I was looking for. Lo and behold there it was, the Front Pocket Leather Satchel. I had looked at the Indiana as well, but quickly decided on Front Pocket satchel due to its front separate large pocket, the extra width and the lower height. I opted for the Dark Coffee Brown color-my favorite. When I received the bag, it was all I had hoped for and more. I was greeted with an unforgettable leather smell that 'til this day has not gone away. The thickness of the leather and the way the bag is assembled is just incredible. This bag will easily outlast my lifetime and then some. The price is spot on. I have received so many compliments from people on the street and co-workers, all asking where did I get it. I have since returned and bought a bunch of matching color pouches and pen cases to go with it. I'm now hooked and am planning future purchases of other Saddleback bags to include travel ones. If you're in the market for the "it" bag, the one that you will buy once and enjoy for the rest of your life, then save your time and search no more. Saddleback is the place.

Going Strong

I’ve had this bag for almost 4 years and still love carrying it every day; it fits everything I need. As expected, it’s holding up great and looks beautiful. I frequently receive compliments on this bag. Writing this review while on browsing for a back pack and shopping with confidence as a repeat customer. Better update the will so they don’t fight over it when I’m dead!

Beautiful, and the-exact-right-size

I bought this satchel for my wife, who has had many bags/satchels/you-name-its throughout the years. Not one had the exact right size. Most were too big, some too small. And so she decided to make her own satchel in the exact right size. It was her favourite for many years until it came apart at the seams...
And then we/she found this satchel on the internet and to our big, big surprise this one, too, had the exact right size... Amazing! And wonderful!
And so I decided to buy this beauty as a birthday present.
The satchel was in Texas USA, we are in The Netherlands. A problem? Not at all: our parcel came whooshing across the Atlantic within 2 days... Really super speed!
My wife is very pleased with this satchel: it’s the most beautiful satchel ever, made of strong and sturdy leather and... of the exact right size...
Thank you all for your service!!!

The leather used in this leather tablet bag is full grain cowhide, which is the strongest and most durable type of leather available.

Design Of The Front Pocket Leather Satchel

This leather satchel can also be called a Man Bag. And rightly so. It is over-engineered with no breakable parts like snaps, buttons, zippers, velcro, etc. Anywhere there is a stress point, it is reinforced with polyester straps and rivets. It's built with just two main pieces of leather, so there are fewer seams. And the stitching on this leather satchel is purposeful with only five stitches per inch, so there's as much leather as possible without it looking weird, so it won't be perforated and shortly tear. This satchel makes the most incredible Leather Tablet Bag.

Materials To Make The Coolest Leather Tablet Bag

The leather used in this satchel is full grain cowhide, which is the strongest and most durable type of leather available. The lining is made of pigskin, which is stronger than cowhide, and the thread is a marine-grade German Polyester thread that is UV resistant. The hardware is made of 316 Stainless Steel, which is the metal of choice when your life depends on it. You can not find the quality of materials used anywhere else.

Full Grain Leather

Our full grain cow leather is the strongest there is. And it's thicker than boot leather. It's not Top Grain or Genuine, but natural Full Grain leather. Low quality and life companies shave off their grain, the toughest and most resistant top part of the hide, to get rid of the natural marks of the cow, so they don't have to cut around them and throw so much leather away. They can use almost every bit of that hide.

Their target customer will shop by price rather than care about the critical information about the materials used. They are trying to reach the uneducated, those that will take less time to research quality before they order. To make our leather satchels, we must throw a lot of leather away because we refuse to shave the grain off. Imagine someone shaving the shingles off of your roof. They'd get arrested, and these people should be too.

Lining Of This Tablet Satchel

The pigskin lining is stronger than the cow skin, and that's why we use it to line our leather satchel instead of some pretty shiny nylon fabric with a neat world map on it.

Thread To Keep Your iPad Pro Safe

The thread is strangely strong. It's a marine grade UV resistant German thread made of Polyester. It's more expensive than all the other threads, but for a reason. When someone's life is on the line, you can depend on it. They sew parachutes, sails, and other important things with this thread. If your life ever depends on this leather satchel staying together, you'll live to tell that story because of this thread.

The Best Hardware

Our hardware is custom, and it's overkill. People who know told me it's unnecessary, and we're wasting money using 316 Stainless Steel, but I tell them that we have never once had a problem with our hardware. It's the metal of choice when your life depends on it.

Functionality Of This Leather Tablet Satchel

This leather tablet bag, or leather iPad bag, depending on your preference for Apple products, or android products, will protect your device just as well. It's big enough to fit an iPad Pro and several other items. As a full grain leather man bag, it will help you have a place for all your stuff, so you don't have to load your pockets down or have your wife carry everything in her leather purse or tote.

The straps are adjustable, so you can make it as tight or loose as you want.

I chose a buckle closure to be able to overstuff (with a hole at the very tip of the strap, just in case). Or you can put it at the tip of the leather satchel to secure an umbrella under the flap but over the main compartment. And the front pocket under the flap is fantastic for keeping things separate.
