“Quality is not an act, it is a habit”
- Aristotle

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.

Finally Got it

I have got it today, it looks fantastic exactly what I had in mind. good job guys .

Gun Range Bag

This was the first Saddleback product I ever bought. I purchased the large Dry Bag in Tobacco Brown. Wow, what a beautiful bag, with gorgeous scarring. The leather is so thick and quality so heavy, it's gonna take some time to "break in" your bag. These are built for the long haul. I have used this daily and love the versatility of this bag. I also took it the the gun range and carried two full cans of ammo and three pistols. If you know anything about ammunition, this is heavy! It was so heavy, my shoulder was hurting, but the Dry Bag stood the test with no problem. Quality is bulletproof! Ha! I get lots of comments about the look and quality of the bag. When you're manipulating the bag, the shoulder strap sounds and feels like horse tack. Seriously, that's how heavy duty it is. Lots of people think it's an antique bag. The reason they think it's an antique, is because THEY DON'T MAKE BAGS OF THIS QUALITY and character anymore. I love the large Dry Bag and will be purchasing the medium Dry Bag this year.

Great Bag

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.

Love It

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!

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.

My bottomless pit "purse"

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!!

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

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.

amazing travel buddy

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.

Shaving kit

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.

Very versatile bag

This is a wonderfully versatile bag. I have the large Chestnut bag.

I was using the classic backpack daily to go back and forth to my gym at work, but it wasn't the ideal bag for the job.

The dry bag is very similar to the waterbag, only smaller. There is no video showing how to use this bag on the website, but watching the waterbag video will show you how to "stow" the strap when carrying open. It's the perfect size for an overnight bag or gym bag, and the smaller sizes could pass for a woman's purse.

There are a few differences between the dry bag and waterbag, besides the number of straps. The handle is sewn on, not riveted, and its not detachable. Since the bag is smaller, it likely won't be carrying massive amounts of weight. Second, the strap is attached with a screw type clip, instead of the quick release type. Personally I'd have ratcheted the quick release type, but its no big deal.
Third, this bag is meant to be carried open or rolled, the strap isn't long enough to do the "through the handle" closure that the waterbag does. So you can roll it and use the strap, or carry open and stow the strap.

It's about the size of a large brown paper grocery bag. It's super versatile, and in my opinion, the perfect combination of size, weight (no pigskin), and utility. It'd be a perfect carry on, overnight bag, gym bag, etc. I have about 15 different saddleback products and this is my favorite one.

Heavy Duty

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.

Kind of a do-all bag!!!!

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.
