The small leather tote to rule them all

This is an amazing bag! The Gladstone opening gives this bag a very unique, practical, and timeless flare. I use it for toting several miscellaneous items - most recently I’ve toted a couple of bottles of bourbon to a social event. I get compliments everywhere I take it. It’s great to load up mags and ammo for the gun range too!

The old man and his bag

The bag opens up, wide open like a sea bass swallowing it’s prey and you can see everything inside. And then, as if, by magic, when full, it shuts closed and you’re off again. The handles are sturdy and comfortable, reminding me of a cowbell’s grip. The strap secures the bag from opening until you need your loot. Works for me. Good for tools, precision instruments, fishing lures and even your lunch. Don’t let the miss’ see it or she’ll try to make it her own. A man’s bag for a manly man. Made by a manly man for manly men to do manly stuff. I wonder if you could fit your superhero outfit in it? I’m partial to the brown colour, so dark brown for me. If you want order in your life, this is your bag. Well done. The sound of me clapping, in the background, as I clench my pipe and admire its workmanship.

Just right size

This is not a huge bag. It is about the perfect size for the guy that needs to carry a few tools around with him. Like all Saddleback leather products it is built to withstand years of use and only look better because of it. This was purchased as a gift and I am anxious to see his reaction.

Need a Dopp kit. This tool bag is so perfect for a real shaving kit

Use this tool bag as your Dopp kit (shaving kit). It is magnificent. You can actually bring the things you need. It has multiple inner pouches to accommodate stuff you need for more than an overnight stay. You can keep shampoo, conditioner and products. A separate place for all your necessities, without them being jumbled or squished. Small inside pouch for a flashlight. Compact pistol fits in an inside pouch. If you’ve lived out of a suitcase, you need this as a “personal” bag. PLUS- it looks amazing on a counter. After all, it is a Saddleback bag. Bite down and spend the dollars, once. Then revel in your success for decades.

Design
This was inspired by an old fashioned leather doctor's bag I found in New Mexico. It was well broken in and absolutely gorgeous. This leather tool bag will be the ugliest the first day you own it. For Doctors and craftsmen. Also used as a first aid kit.

Note:
This bag WILL NOT fit a laptop or iPad of any size except for an iPad Mini. It's for old school analog things like tools, medical equipment, art or sewing supplies.

No Breakable Parts:
There are no breakable parts like snaps, zippers, buttons, velcro or any other Hello Kitty construction. Just hard buckles. Like they use to make them.

Reinforced:
Anywhere there is stress, it gets stitching, a rivet and usually a reinforcing hidden Polyester strap sewn.

Large Pieces:
This leather tool bag is designed with only one large piece of leather for the body and one piece on each end. Seams are where tool bags start falling apart, so we designed this doctor's bag with as few as we could.

Stitching:
We set our industrial sewing machines to sew only 5 stitches per inch to get the needle holes as far apart as we can. That's important because a sewing machine is also a perforation machine and when the holes are too close together, the leather tends to tear easily. This leather tool bag is stronger than anything you need it to carry.

Materials
Full Grain Leather:
Our leather tool bag is made of the strongest cow leather there is because it still has the full amount of grain. Every hide comes with what is called "grain", the toughest and most water resistant fibers of the whole hide. But cowhides come thick, so the tannery splits them in half at the tannery. The top half is the toughest because it has all of the grain still on it and the bottom half has been neutered. The bottom half is called Split or Genuine leather and also suede. If you find a really inexpensive leather tool bag or doctor's bag, that's why. If you're going to get one, get a quality one. Removing all of the grain from a leather hide is like removing the shingles from your roof. How sad is that? Oh, and our leather is a little thicker than work boot leather.

Lining:
Because there are often sharp tools inside of tool bags, we lined it with tough tough pigskin, which is actually stronger than cow skin its same thickness. And it looks really good. 

Thread:
Not only do we sew this leather doctor's bag with as few seams as possible, but we sew it with a UV resistant continuous filament Polyester thread instead of cheap Nylon thread. The good and bad of Polyester is it never deteriorates. Good for thread, bad for clothing and sheets. BTW, did you know that people don't sleep as well if they have Polyester in their bedding and Polyester clothing give a lot of people skin problems? But when it comes to thread, Polyester will give you a lifetime of greatness. And then we use the thick German double ought thread.

Hardware:
It's kind of like killing a fly with a shotgun, but we developed our own custom hardware for our leather bags. If you talk to a metallurgist and tell them we use 316 Stainless Steel, they'll gasp and then tell you we're lying. It is expensive and kind of overkill, but we have never had a single issue with our hardware failing. If your life had to depend on a hardware let it to depend on ours. The clasps that clip onto the body of this leather tool bag are rated for 750 lbs. 

Functionality
The Big Mouth Tool Bag Gladstone opening is much wider at the top than at the bottom so it's easy to find things. And the lining is beige so it reflects light so things are easily seen. Full-length pigskin pockets on both sides, with an extra layer of 3 smaller internal pockets on one side. Two leather pull tabs make the tool bag easy to open. Handles are rolled and sewn for comfortable carry.

Pro tip #1:
Buy quality tools and scratch your initials into them so your descendants will remember you fondly every time they tap a drywall anchor into the wall.

Pro tip #2:
A great ongoing gift for high schoolers and college students are tools each year for their birthday or Christmas presents. When they move out on their own, they'll have a complete set to get them along.
