"... Saddleback Leather no longer discriminates against any cow on the basis of age, appearance, lactose intolerance... if the beast has a natural marking or brand, or whether or not they worship the Divine Bovine."

Truth is, sometimes beauty is only skin deep... like with cows. Their poetry is notoriously terrible, but man, their hides are nature's art. We don't believe that flawlessness equals beauty. Beauty is when we're able to see something as it really is.

This is true with humans too. There are lots of quality people who are really beautiful not in spite of, but because of the marks life has given them.

I was in a little Tunisian medina on the edge of the Sahara, when I saw it- an old old leather bag- and it was for sale. I thought it was absolutely the coolest bag I’d ever laid eyes on, not only because of the aged looking leather, but because it was made of only one solid piece, folded around and sewn to itself. The top just folded over and it closed. I thought, “Man, that is so cool. I’m going to make me something like this one day.” And then I did something that I still regret to this day. I mean, I really don’t have many regrets in life, but this is one of the big ones. I put that bag back down on the table and I walked away. Why didn’t I buy it?!!! Ahhhhh!!! I’m so stupid sometimes. But anyways, that bag is what inspired this Dry Bag, And as I got more into picture taking, I bought a nicer camera and some lenses, and I thought, “You know, it’s time to make that one bag that’s dustproof and keeps things dry.” And voila! Out popped the Dry Bag.

My Birthday Bag

by - verified purchaser |
My hubby purchased this bag for me. I have used it as a cross body style purse, a farmers market bag, to carry my grocery store hauls, on day trips, overnight trips, scrapbooking retreats, it's been taken to sports outings- you name it. The first time I placed items in it and did not "roll down" the top, it flipped over and spilled the contents onto the ground. However, that was my fault. Apparently a 15 inch macbook and other items aren't intended to be slung over one shoulder like a regular purse. LOL. I use this bag almost daily because of it's versatility. During our harsh snow storms I have full confidence that my items inside stay protected from the elements.

Amazing

I got this bag as an anniversary gift. I have been carrying it as a purse to break it in and it's fabulous. I plan on using it as a carry on for a trip next week and an overnight bag on a regular bases. I can't say enough about how well made the bag its. It's a great think leather and the hardware is heavy duty. I can see myself using this bag for a million things. Also I loved that part of the price goes to helping people in need.

Very versatile bag

by - verified purchaser |
I've had the large chestnut for about a year. I got it as a Dave's deal. There isn't really anything noticeable wrong with it. The depth of color in the chestnut seems to be a little lacking in this bag compared to other products, but that seems to be the norm from pictures I've seen around the web.

I use this bag to go to the supermarket, as an overnight bag, and sometimes as a work bag. It really can hold a lot of stuff and adapt to your needs.

One tip for those that wish the cinch strap was longer- latch a utility strap onto it. I have a set in medium and one almost doubles the length. I had the bag full nearly to the handles and was still able to buckle it.

dry bag

by - verified purchaser |
I'm a long time buyer of saddleback products..to date I have classic briefcase, the satchel, simple backpack and most recently the dry bag. I bought the dry bag off of Dave's deals.. if there is a flaw in the bag I have yet to find it...I'm a RN working in an Emergency Dept..as such I carry lots of things I need to use while working...by the way I got the larger dry bag...its well built, I love to stuff various things into this bag
and it handles it all...if I had any complaints it would be to make the cinch strap longer...other than that its an awesome bag and lives up to Saddleback products...before I buy any product I research any available product out there. There is lots of leather companies out there...but none that can match the quality of Saddleback products. My next purchase will be the messenger bag....which I intend to use on my excursions this summer. Oh by the way I might mention the staff of Saddleback Leather. They are cheerful, helpful and just a delight to work with....These products might be a little expensive..but they'll serve you well forever....Not many companies out there like this company....Buy just one product from them and you will be hooked forever.. oh I forgot I have the portfolio large and small...the bible cover and the moleskin cover....

Sand, Hail and Mountain-Proof!

by - verified purchaser |
This was my first bag from Saddleback Leather, and I have to say, it completely ruined my desire to ever buy any more branded leather bags! There is just absolutely no comparison when it comes to the quality of a Saddleback. Shortly after I bought it in the stunning Coffee Brown, the Carbon (which I wanted!) came back in stock, but when I received it, I couldn't bear to return my Coffee! My boyfriend and I have received many many compliments while we took turns to carry it around.

I took it travelling through Canada in the coldest, harshest winter I've ever been through. It survived the sudden hail storm in Niagara, a flying fall down the mountain side in Montreal, and a rocky brush-off when I tripped at the Malecón in Cuba with barely any scratches! Snow and dust never once entered the bag to harm my DSLR camera or its extra sensitive lenses. My only wish is that the bag were lighter, though! At 5'1 and about 100lbs, I'm quite petite. The bag, even with just my cameras, lenses, and travel necessities really wore me out on longer routes and I had to rest more frequently than I'd hoped. Boyfriend (at ~6') had absolutely no complaints about the weight though, so it's probably just because I'm not strong enough for the bag! Saving up for the lighter Simple Tote from Love 41 now, can't wait to purchase more Saddleback!

Love It

by - verified purchaser |
Got the small bag in tobacco on Dave's Deal's. I just love it. My SB big leather wallet fits standing on its end. I can fit so much stuff in this bag - or very little and fold it over. I carry it to church, out to eat, doctor appts. and other short jaunts. Because there is no shoulder strap on the small bag, I don't carry it to the mall or all day outings. The leather is thick and beautiful and the discontinued tobacco color is gorgeous! Will be back for the medium on Mother's Day.

saddleback addiction is real!

by - verified purchaser |
This is my first of four products to arrive (also bought a front pocket backpack, a water bag, and a bible cover - tried to get a wallet too but my bank shut down my card for my suspicious activity :) ). This bag is from ebay though, in the old black color. I definitely like the more rustic appearance I expect on my water bag compared to this solid black bag but the quality is awesome, I'm impatient, and the black was on backorder...perfect storm for an ebay search. Anyway, incredible bag that I bought for my camera and assorted electronics on trips but primarily for tackle and a daily lunchbox...its so versatile! No need to see how it holds up, so evident already.

Unique amongst it's peers - Easy to use - Functional

by - verified purchaser |
I bought a large tobacco dry bag on a lark after seeing it on Dave's deals (10% off) and I thought my wife would kill me. I already have 3 other Saddleback bags & wallets you see.

But the day it got here she ended-up loving it - there is nothing else like this bag anywhere. It is very functional - the pictures don't do it justice! And it just holds so damn much and things are easy to access - just unclip the single strap and you've got full access to the interior. I have a large tobacco briefcase and a large tobacco messenger bag that were both in regular service until the dry bag arrived. I still use them but the dry bag is in daily service.

Shaving kit

by - verified purchaser |
Got mine as a shaving kit as I use older style safety razors to shave with and quality gear didn't fit well with a crappy faux leather kit bag. Great quality. Works amazing for what I'm using it for and I can see tons of other uses if I ever decided to switch it up. Rolled up is the perfect size for a shaving kit that stands out from the crowd.

Heavy Duty

by - verified purchaser |
Quality construction sets this bag apart, along with its ingenious design. I use this bag to carry IV fluids and other medical supplies for work, the bag gets noticed everywhere I go. Previous bags that I have used for this task over the years last about 6 months before zippers fail, or velcro wears out. I'm at about 9 months of heavy duty use with this bag and all that shows is character. The hardware is top notch, along with a carry strap that is comfortable and functional, considering I carry about 10-15 pounds of fluids in it every day. My only criticism is that I wish the closing strap was 2-3 inches longer.

amazing travel buddy

by - verified purchaser |
I own the large DCB bag and it gets attention wherever I go. I actually had a woman stop me to smell it. What I love the most about it is it's packing flexibility. Carry it open, closed, rolled...there are several options. Quality is bulletproof and it is the best looking bag I've ever owned. It's at home in a 5 star hotel, camping and as a beach tote. The only thing I wish it had was a way to convert it to a backpack and I wish the center strap was one or two inches longer. It's a fantastic carry-on and will fit under most seats. It even fits in the overhead of a commuter jet.

Backpack Hack-You can turn this into a nice backpack-follow up review

by - verified purchaser |
Saddleback is not selling this as a backpack, but if you look at the video on turning your briefcase into a backpack, it is even easier on this nice bag. Instead of threading the strap through the ring on the briefcase you thread it through the handle and reconnect on the other side. You only have to use the holes near the end of the strap. I am 6'2" 230 lbs, and this was very comfortable and makes an awesome size daypack. This bag is quickly becoming an all around go to bag. I am planning on getting a second shoulder pad just to have two very comfortable pads against my shoulders, although just the strap is very comfortable for me by itself

Huge little Large Dry Bag

by - verified purchaser |
I think a key design element that really makes this the biggest small bag I've seen is that YOU DON'T HAVE TO CLOSE A ZIPPER, if you think of this as a compression bag from camping you will understand that you can get way more in it than trying to stuff things into a comparable size duffle.

I bought the large tobacco brown, the leather is soft and supple yet thick and tough, the bottom has an open top boxy liner which I really like, it keeps a shape to help a shirt stay folded squarely and not get rumpled up. The bag will fit an old style box shaving kit, spare khakis,spare shirt, topsiders, underwear, socks and still have room for flip flops, a tee shirt, shorts, and more. The bag used open would even have more room and looks like a beach bag. I take this bag with me to the jobsite and leave it in my car, it holds spare clothes if I have to go back to the office after a day in the heat. The bag keeps out all dust and dirt. I carry my topsiders to put on after a long day with a drive ahead. This could be used as a front carry food bag for big canoe trips clipped onto your shoulder straps and would hold enough food for a week. If i drive to a job accross the state I would carry this, my briefcase and my Large Waterbag. This bag will compress your gear as much or little as you want making a nice tight package, or use like I said earlier open top and carry by the handles. I can see using this in the hotel to carry clothes to the laundry and back. Made from one piece of leather, and the strap goes accross the one seam on the bag as shown in the picture. I highly recommend this bag to keep your spare clothes in your back seat or to do a short overnight trip.

Other saddleback items I have are the large water bag, the Classic briefcase, several moleskine covers, a bifold wallet and some other bags that have been stolen from me, but are still mine, out there somewhere .

Great Bag

by - verified purchaser |
I love this bag to bits. It is sturdy and stylish. I take it camping and shopping and it is not out of place at either time. These products are truly functional art. My only complaint is that the screw on the carabiner style connector on the long strap frequently works itself loose and comes off of the bag while in use.

My bottomless pit "purse"

by - verified purchaser |
I absolutely LOVE this bag! I bought this bag in the Medium Tobacco Brown last February for my birthday and I'm in love! I use this bag as a an everyday purse. I cut the four sides of the lining and just kept the bottom part for durability (it makes the bag less bulky and heavy). I have a lot of designer bags and I love that this bag costs about as much, but is much better quality. I love the thickness of the leather, the durability, and the design. Honestly, my two Saddleback bags are my favorite bags (I also have the 2012 small briefcase in Carbon Black) . I own roughly 20 or more leather designer bags/purses (I'm a woman who collects bags :). The Saddleback bags are the BEST! For Christmas, I'm buying myself another Medium Dry Bag in Carbon! Suzette, I hope you have more designs coming out for the ladies because you definitely have the market!!

Just purchased my 4th Dry Bag!

by |
Yep, number 4! After purchasing an iPad case years ago, I decided I wanted a dry bag. Waited for months for it to be available in tobacco. Use it all the time, tons of compliments on it wherever I go. About a month ago I started some early holiday shopping and bought 2 more for my business partners (can't wait to give them to the guys).

A couple of weeks ago a buddy of mine treated me to an amazing trip to Vegas. He commented on my bag a few times so when we got home I hopped back on the website and ordered one for him too - he should be getting it any day now.

After the dry bag I treated myself to a front pocket briefcase and a pouch.

Every piece is a work of art. I'm addicted. Just deciding what the next piece will be.
Keep the videos coming Dave, they are great and make me feel even better about the quality and value of your products!

Range bag/camera bag

by |
I really can't say enough about this bag. So simple, yet so awesome and versatile. I got this specifically to be my range bag, but I use it for almost everything. I got the large in tobacco brown. I usually go to the range with 5-8 boxes of ammo, 2-3 pistols, eyewear, earmuffs, and some other random stuff, and It all fits in this bag. Even with all that in there it doesn't hurt my shoulder at all. Just so happens that an insert from one of my dad's old camera bags fits nicely in here with about 3 1/2 inches of extra space. All in all, this bag is so great that I'm considering getting another on so that I don't have to change between a range or camera bag. Only thing keeping from doing that, though, is that the more places I take this amazing bag, the more stories it'll have.

Love it!

Yet another sweet item from THE leather experts. Was able to get this large Dry Bag at the 35% off deal and am I ever happy I did. This thing will serve as just about anything. Overnight bag, cooler, shopping bag. Whatever your hearts desire. If SBL is getting rid of this model, I'm glad I got it. Very nice and very useful! Another notch in my leather belt. Thanks SBL!

This is quality that lasts and lasts.

I have both sizes of dry bags. The small one I employ as my insulin and medicine case, while I travel. The large one is excellent for a week end or carry-on bag.
The materials and workmanship are very good.

I'm a horse-person...

by - verified purchaser |
I see a lot of leather...quality matters to me greatly! I prefer to buy something once & not live with regret. So, as a horse person, I was curious as to how my Dry Bag would actually be upon arrival...would it live up to the reviews, representations etc....OH YES!!!! The leather is high-quality. The hardware is located intelligently & not excessively...this bag does not look like an Edward Scissorhandy bag...the pig-skin inset is key to maintaining the form of the bag....& I love it. I bought a large carbon-coloured creation....here's the capacity: I can fit a dressage bridle, dressage girth, pashmina, phone, wallet, digital camera, hair brush, dressage pad AND my mac book pro into this bag...that means one trip from the car with this bag & my saddle is all that is needed. So, I bought another large in Tobacco...one for my brown boot days...& I justify the carbon, which covers my black boot days! This bag WILL age very nicely & truly is the perfect bag for carrying a massive amoutn of stuff in, while looking stylish. Interestingly, it does, as dave shows in the video...roll down & buckle up into a completely secure, reasonably-sized bag for functioning as a classy purse (which is what I wanted), your normal woman-stuff, such a lipstick, parfum, tictacs, books etc WILL NOT FALL OUT!...So, yes...you can buy this bag & not give a 2nd thought to leather quality. Thanks Saddleback...from a happy horsetrainer.

Kind of a do-all bag!!!!

by - verified purchaser |
When I first planned on ordering this bag I was torn between this bag (large carbon black) or a utility duffle. In my opinion this bag has an edge over the duffle because of it being made of one piece of leather, and being more dirt and water resistant. The only thing that the duffle has over this bag is more space. But overall if your looking for a multi purpose bag to use as luggage, gym bag, makeshift cooler, and probably more, than definitely give this bag a closer look. You might be surprised at its possible uses.

Completely Hooked....

by - verified purchaser |
Like most of the other people have said, this is an exceptional bag. I carry it whenever and wherever I can. The leather feels, smells, and looks amazing. I obsessed over the website for months while waiting for the large dry bag to become available in tobacco, and when it came it was everything I expected. You WILL get stopped and asked about it.



Browsing the site now deciding which will be my second piece. Leaning towards the front pocket briefcase vs the front pocket backpack.



Although I am an atheist, I appreciate Dave's convictions and spirituality. I was delighted to hear how part of the purchase price went to supporting important good works like wells for clean water in Africa (especially since my son recently became involved with Project Thirst at his college).



Great man, great company, phenomenal product.



If you are remotely considering purchasing something, do it now. You will not regret it.
