Perfect EDC

by -

Just received my FPP in Tobacco. I love this bag. I don't carry electronics a lot so I can't speak to how well they fit in the bag, but for my personal items like wallet, keys, phone and odds and ends (in a small case) they fit perfectly. The one thing to be aware of with this bag is that the front pocket is not closed off by the flap. So if you are going to carry small items you will want to put them in the main part of the bag (which is closed off by the flap). The closure is really convenient and easy to use. I highly recommend this bag for men or women either one.

 

Best of both worlds

by

I love, love, love, this bag! I have loved all my (3) other Saddleback bags but found them to be a little large or heavy for my frame-I'm 5'5" and 150. This is the perfect size for holding everything I need a purse for plus could hold a small water inside. I'm also a huge fan of backpacks-I prefer them when I go for a walk or hike but always have to trade out stuff from my purse to the pack. No longer is that necessary and I'm so stoked! Even though this doesn't have a ring at the top the handle functions as one. You just thread the strap though and voila--backpack! The quality is always top notch with Saddleback and the design/size of this bag is perfect for me. Ladies this could be your HG bag!

 

Perfect Travel Bag for Essentials

by -

I purchased this bag because I needed something smaller and lighter than my Messenger bag to take on trips, mainly for ease of movement and to keep myself from lugging around too much. Having just returned from a 16 day trip to Europe, I can tell you that the Front Pocket Pouch is the perfect bag for carrying your essentials, whether on vacation or in your daily life.







This bag fit my camera (Canon G16), external phone charger, Saddleback Passport Wallet, sunglasses, notebook, and other assorted accouterments. The bag is small enough that you can find what you're looking for quickly, but big enough to hold what you need. It's also small enough that it doesn't get in the way in large crowds, such as a beer fest in Munich, or in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, and the clasp is great at warding off pickpockets. I like this bag so much I've started carrying it everywhere instead of just on trips.







You know this is a great bag when you're wandering through a leather store in Florence, and the staff starts following you around asking where the bag came from. The look on their face when I told them "A company out of Texas" was priceless. If you're looking for a bag that is a great daily carry for your essentials, the Front Pocket Pouch definitely fits the bill.

 

Perfect Man Bag

Just received my Front Pouch Pocket. Tobacco color matches my personality. Fits my concealed carry Double Tap firearm, wallet, phone, iPod and Kindle. Great for travel or everyday use.

 

Great update to original pouch

by

I've used the original pouch (still available and highly recommended) on many trips and day outings. Helps me keep up with wallet, phone, and keys. I'm always afraid I'll leave one or the other item on a plane or taxi or bench somewhere or it will slip out of my pocket and be not noticed until far away. Stuffing everything into the pouch gives me just one thing to keep. Peace of mind and comfort all within one little leather pouch. However, on some days I wished the original pouch was just a bit larger and the front pocket pouch is almost like it was designed just for me and according to my specs. This thing is perfect for my needs. As always, it's represents the usual Saddleback quality and excellent customer service.

 

Happy!

by

I just received this bag and I am so excited to use it! I actually wanted the tobacco color, but it was backordered, and I didn't want to wait--- so I ordered the dark coffee brown. I'm really happy with the color! I have another bag that is tobacco, and I love that bag, too, but I think I like this color even better. It's not as heavy as I thought it might be, which makes me happy. Craftsmanship is superb. Clasp is easy to do, and I know it will get easier with practice. Holds keys, phone, moleskine journal, wallet, reading glasses, and sunglasses. I love the organization. I anticipate wearing this bag A LOT! Thank you for another great purchase. I've told all of my friends!

 

Perfect for travel.

by

I just got back from a 10 day trip to Disney World where I used my new Front Pocket Pouch in Tobacco everyday. I was looking for a bag to carry a few essantials and to avoid carrying a backpack in the heat. This bag was perfect for my trip and will get regular use now at home. There was enough room for a couple bottles of water, sunglasses, iPhone 6+ in a Lifeproof case (in the front pocket), battery charger & cable and a couple snacks. The clasp was easy to use with one hand while carrying a kid in the other! The quality of the product is great and will hold up for years and is breaking in well already. Despite getting wet from daily rain (and an occasional water ride) the leather is free from water spots and looks great. Very happy with my decision to purchase.







My only suggestion is that the bag should come with a shoulder strap pad for regular use. I was able to purchase one at a very reasonable price from SBL and it worked out great.







Thanks for a great product.

 

Great EDC

by

Great EDC (Every Day Carry) for keeping essentials organized and easily accessible. Small enough to easily carry but not as large as my other bags or as heavy. Easy to open after you get the latch system down and will be even better when you get it "broken in". A key strap and clip would make it better for me as my other bags have them but the adjustment will not be too difficult. Same Saddleback QUALITY as always! Great design. I carry medications and insulin, wallet, keys, pocket knives, flash light, phone and "guy stuff" with ease. Would be an excellent concealed carry option as well due to easy access.

 

Just right!

by

I have several pieces from SBL, including the full size messenger bag. And even at 6'4" it's a bit much for everyday carry. In fact, I often use it as overnight luggage. So, I just ordered and received the "mini" version and I'm confident this is going to be the perfect EDC bag. Just right for wallet, keys, and my small SBL notepad. Just right!

 

The SBL "Gateway Drug"

by

I bought this for my 8 year old who wanted a bag like his daddy (i have the large thin briefcase in the original tobacco). It arrived today and my wife was so impressed with it that she said she'd take it if he didn't use it.... often. She wasn't a big fan of SBL or Love41 (for herself) at first, but this bag may just be the gateway drug!!







This is a high quality, well crafted bag. Its more than enough space for a kid to carry his stuff, or to be used as a purse for a petite lady. Its thick, rugged leather with suede lining... AND the awesome clasp like on earlier SBL stuff. Further, its really light... i mean really light. This is a goldilocks product... price, quality, and size.







If you're on the edge, its well worth the money. You wont be disappointed. Did i mention how silky soft the suede lining is? The cost of this bag alone used to be the up-charge for suede lining in a bigger briefcase. You won't find a better deal at SBL than this bag.

 

PERFECTION!!

by

Ok, I've been a sucker for SBL for at least 7 years now. I Started out with the pricey smaller satchels. I Started off with the tobacco, been breaking in the reddish one that is more like a brownish red fits me perfectly. No problems with the clasp, downsized my carrying essentials a little but not missing anything! I've carried LV, Coach, you name it! Today I'm getting the black one @10% off (I already told myself if there was a Daves deal I was nabbing it!) Has a masculine edge, but either way fits my 4"10' frame perfectly ,straps are solid size not too thin or thick and its light weight too. Believe me I also have the hobos (which I can't stand the width of the straps) & the medium clutch (can't fit 4 things in it)! If you go an inch wider from right to left and add about the same in the inside, but keep the length from top to bottom I believe you might find the perfect sized bag the ones who need to carry a bit more. Geesh go ahead, I'll send my credit card to ya, lol

 

Love the bag, shoulder strap needs work

by

Received my back pouch bag. Like the clasp but shoulder strap when adjusted out flops at the end. They should have thought to consider having that float so the strap is easier to adjust when lenght is let out.

 

A little Gem!

by

Love the design! This is my ninth Saddleback bag and will work well as a smaller summer purse. To my surprise, my large Saddleback wallet actually fits in this bag! My iPad mini fits nicely in the front pocket, which could alternatively accommodate my iPhone which I now carry on the outer back pocket. I suspect my regular iPad might fit snugly in the larger compartment, but NOT with the Saddleback cover. When the "pouch" first came, I wasn't sure I liked the markings which are more prominent in tobacco than the other colors, but the more I kept looking at it, the more they grew on me. They give the bag a unique character. (The other colors are already in my wish list.) This one's a winner.

 

Nice Bag, not so nice color

by

I had the tablet bag but wanted this bag when I saw the clasp; much easier to open and close. My newest favorite color is tobacco and that is what I ordered; especially since in the last year or two the tobacco color is closer to the original dark tobacco with matte finish and varying tone.







The bag that I received is anything but tobacco. I emailed the company and sent pics of the bag compared to my tobacco ipad cover; however, they reassured me that my new bag is tobacco.







This "new tobacco" is very generic, glossy and monotone throughout. Looks closer to chestnut than tobacco.







I hope Saddleback goes back to the former tobacco.

 

The perfect bag to carry your JR Pass!

by

Bought this bag for a 16 day trip through Japan. The thin pocket on the back was perfect for storing my Japan Rail pass. The front pocket fits the thinner Lonely Planet Kyoto book perfectly with room for an older model Kindle, but is too shallow to fit the meatier Lonely Planet Japan book. The main compartment can hold a Saddleback coin purse and the Saddleback Passport Wallet side by side, with plenty of room on top to fit a Galaxy S6 laying sideways.







If I had any complaints it would be that the front pocket on mine was sewn on slightly crooked, and the back panel is slightly longer than the front, which makes the bag tip over on its face when I set it down. Lastly, the closure can be a bit of a pain to operate with one hand, especially when the bag is full, since there is tension on the ring and clasp that prevents easy release. Because of the mfg issues I'm giving this 4 stars.







Overall though I love this bag and I'll definitely be using it on my next trip.

Story

Usually my Pouch is the bag I don’t leave the house without. But I bought a 1903 edition set of the Harvard Classics awhile back, and I’ve been enjoying reading through those. I’ve usually got a volume with me, so I decided to design a small bag that holds all the everyday stuff I carry, plus a book. Basically it’s a shrunk-down version of our Messenger Bag.
