How can I get my spouse to understand that I need this?
Here's your rationale: Buy the best, cry once. It's all about the cost per year. In college, I bought a pair of very expensive shoes for my job as a waiter. I couldn't afford them, but I bought them anyhow. They were really light and comfortable and took me through two years of waiting tables and one year as a limo driver and another year of occasional use. And then they still looked good for a month of Sundays. Cost per year was about $25. Most of the other waiters bought a new pair of $55 heavy and uncomfortable shoes every 6 months because theirs wore out and looked ratty by then. One of the principles the successful in the world understand is this: If one buys quality from the start they save money. Don't be penny wise and dollar foolish. This will be one of the most savvy investments and inexpensive leather pieces you'll ever have. And remember, you must truly love yourself before you can love others. A couple of other things to think about you'll be more popular. Everybody isn't buying one. I'll invite you to my birthday party. What's wrong, you chicken?
Which color should I get?
Pick the one that fits who you are. I've observed what the bag owners tend to be like based on the color they have chosen over the years. The category below that fits you best is probably the color you'll enjoy most. Remember, your first inclination is usually the correct one.

Are the animals tortured before they are slaughtered?
Absolutely not ! With some pigs we do use waterboarding and sensory deprivation techniques previous to slaughtering them, but the cows do not require any special handling.
Where can I see one of the bags in person?
I don't have any of the items in stores and we're not big fans of folks coming to our home in San Antonio because of the weirdo factor. My sister, Patricia and her husband (my Chess and Scrabble nemesis), send out the leather from their place near Ft. Worth, Texas, but again, because of the weirdo factor they're not set up to show either. If it helps, everyone tells me that they look better in person.
How much do they cost you, Dave?
Well, I lived for three years in a $100 a month apartment in Mexico with no hot water, because of these bags. My dog, Blue, and I drove for thousands of hours all over the North American continent because of these bags. I had a crooked Federale sent to kill me because of these bags (I convinced him that SeÃ±or Alarcon would never pay him) and we became friends). I've shed gallons of blood and tears and sweat and at least a quart of other people's, because of these bags. I've slept in my car or on the rack of my old Land Cruiser at least 150 times because of these bags. I've lost weeks of sleep and have gone hungry for days because of these bags. I was broke for years and even had to trade two of Blue's little puppies for a month's worth of tacos in order to eat because of these bags. I've been detained by who knows how many Mexican police because of these bags. I've thrown away thousands of dollars and made hundreds of mistakes because of these bags. I've been stolen from, taken advantage of and robbed because of these bags (they even stole Blue once, but I got him back). All of these things and more have happened to me because of these bags. They cost me a lot.
Holds two passports effortlessly (mine & my son's) plus other wallet-type stuff like $ bills, foreign bills, 10+ cards & I.D.s, boarding passes, etc.
I got the RFID shielded version to keep my minimal conspiracy theorist at bay.
The quality is honestly second-to-none (as-is everything else from Saddleback).
Here's to years of travel and my growing collection of good ole Texas ingenuity & leather.
Great Travel Wallet
Needed a wallet that could hold me and my girlfriends passports and travel documents for our one month Euro trip. I couldn't find anything that fit the bill until I stumbled upon your passport wallet, from the pictures the wallet looked to big to be comfortable for the entire trip but I decided to get it anyway. I ordered it in tobacco brown and I'm glad I went with my gut decision and ordered this excellent wallet, yeah its big but not bulky. It held all of our travel documents, Euro's, Passports, etc. It took a hell of a beating on our trip and still looked like new. This will be the only wallet we will need or be using on our future travels around the world. If your looking for a Travel wallet or want a big wallet for everyday use look no further.
What an excellent wallet! Originally bought this for travel purposes and it eventually replaced my everyday one. The leather is thick and strong enough to withstand daily use. I have used this wallet in chestnut for over 3 years and each time I open it, I feel I have bought something worth while; the quality is superb. The best part is it has several key areas which I can use. When traveling the passport is in it's sleeve with the boarding pass on the outside one. In everyday use it holds a small notepad and receipts. The other sleeves hold the credit cards and currency respectively. It even has enough space to clip on a small pen and still feel comfortable in the back pocket.
Simple but effective
Has room for large bills and all documentation needed for travel. I had my drivers license, two credit cards, fat stack of bills, photocopies of ID, flight information, rental car information, hotel information, boarding passes and my passport with plenty of room left over. It's big, but not bulky and its worth the small hassle of carting it around to have everything right were you need it. Very handy and well made.
Best Passport Wallet
I've had my passport wallet (in Chestnut) for almost two years now. It's traveled with me to China 4 times and Europe once. When I go overseas it's my only wallet I bring. It has my passport, a few credit cards, drivers license, and any cash I may be carrying. It holds the bigger foreign bills, and I put my receipts and boarding passes in the pockets. It can get a little thick (it starts out "Saddleback thick"), but no worries. I carry it in my front pants pocket, and the edges are really starting to conform, while it is also developing a patina that just keeps looking better. There ain't no way you can wear this out. If you're looking for some thin Italian-style leather wallet that doesn't make much of a bulge in your pocket, this isn't it, but if you want a wallet that looks great and you'll never need to replace it, look no further. Expect to hear compliments from hotel desk clerks.
