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!!!

We love the item. My daughter has purchased 4 other items and now we are hooked. The workmanship and quality are amazing. We love these products. My daughter and I both use these satchels as our purses and we get numerous compliments. Thank you for the amazing work.

Excellent

This is not my first purchase from Saddleback and I am sure it won't be my last. This satchel is better than expected. It works great for my iPad 11" pro and all the accessories. The quality is unsurpassed. Excellent workmanship! Worth every penny I paid for it!

Beautiful EDC in Tobacco

In 2013 I had a small satchel in Chestnut. I ended up selling the small satchel because it was a tight squeeze for my EDC items. This FP satchel is perfection! The tobacco color is so beautiful in 2020! I love the color, it is warm and honey-like, not velvety. I absolutely love this bag and would highly recommend it. The weight is perfect! Right now I carry a 2018 iPad Pro 11” in the magic keyboard case and it fits perfectly in the main compartment with room to spare. I’m a 5’4 woman and I was trying to decide between this satchel and the Indy. The difference in size and weight was hard to decide between, but I am so glad I went with the FP satchel! It is the perfect size! This is my 10th SBL product and I think Dave really nailed the design on this one.

Perfect EDC!!!

Perfect bag! I was wondering how this would measure up compared to the original satchel, not sure I needed the front pocket. I love this new design! I love the clean look without the D rings on the bottom! The pocket behind the pocket is my favorite to stuff receipts in etc in a hurry. Perfect size for my EDC. This tobacco right now is really something. All my other tobacco bags are PB tobacco and I love that leather, but this velvet touch is very unique. I only wish I’d pulled the trigger sooner! :heart:️:heart:️:heart:️:heart:️:heart:️As with all SBL purchases, I can’t imagine life without this!

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.
