    So, I was overlooking Loch Ness real early one crisp March morning with nary a cloud nearby, just having a little quiet time by myself, when I looked down from the bench and couldn’t believe me two eyes. Right before me were 5 long dark shadows, slowly cruising in the same direction, just below the surface. They looked like they were about 20 - 30 ft. long and kind of fat with long thin necks and tails. I watched them for a bit and then ran upstairs to grab the camera and tell Suzette. Of course, when she finally got out of bed and downstairs, they were gone.

    Okay, I know you’re probably shaking your head a little, rolling your eyes and probably just breathed out some air in the form of a slight laugh and said, “This guy’s a total idiot”. And the reason I know that’s what you probably did is because that’s what Suzette did. Just the facts, ma’am. Really. I’m not kidding. It’s what I saw. Why would I lie? Steve “The Nessy Hunter” Feltham, who had been living there for 20 years watching for Nessy, was very disappointed that I didn’t get any pictures, but at least he believed me.

    Whether or not you believe that, believe this; the satchel is the bag I pack in my suitcase when we travel to cool places like Scotland and I know I’ll be wandering on foot quite a bit. So, we went around Scotland and I used my satchel as my main daily bag. The large satchel just so happens to fit my big camera and a couple of extra lenses. The satchel is the ideal bag for carrying the bare minimum around for a day while staying prepared.

    Fun fact: the earliest report of a monster at Loch Ness was as early as the 6th Century by Saint Columba. Check out Wikipedia and you’ll see that I’m not the only one. I’m not making this up.

    Fabulous

    by - verified purchaser |
    I bought this bag in a tobacco medium about 9 months ago as a graduation present for myself. I absolutely love it. It's extremely sturdy and has a good amount of space in it. The medium is perfect for me because I can fit a ton in there and still not have it look too bulky. People compliment me on it all the time about how good it looks. Definitely the best bag I have ever owned.

    I just received the medium satchel and very happy with the new lining. It will serve as my EDC. For those who are wondering wether MBA 13 will fit or not, I can confirm it will fit (without the sleeve). Check out my review in youtube for MBA 13 in medium satchel.







    Very happy with the product and very happy with the service.

    BEST BAG YET!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I received the small satchel in chestnut as a gift from my amazing husband recently and I'm IN LOVE!! It's the most adorable bag! It looks like a mini briefcase and is so completely functional I want to carry it everywhere! I'm 5'3 and the small is just perfect for me. I love all the pockets and the strap on this little bag is so comfortable I can use it all day! I can't imagine how any other SBL product could top this little satchel, it's by far the highest quality bag in my collection.

    I've been using the medium satchel for a couple of days now, it's gorgeous, also fits (just) my macbook air, and the quality of the finish is fantastic. This is destined to be my everyday bag for years to come.

    Please Bring Carbon Black Back!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I own this in the Medium Carbon Black. I LOVE this bag.







    It fits my SBL wallet perfectly, and also fits an iPad in the back pocket, a cosmetics case, and my sunglasses with some room to spare. I love the wide, padded shoulder pads and shoulder strap, as this mitigates the weight of the bag on the shoulder. On the outside, I fit my car keys into one pocket, my SBL Wallet Sleeve in the other (which has my train and work pass), and in the back pocket, my iPhone fits snugly in its gadget sleeve. Everything about it is perfect, and I think it may be the last handbag I own. I don't think I will be able to see leather in the same way ever again.







    SBL was wrong though. While it may be the last bag you ever own, you will find yourself buying other SBL items to GO in your new 'last' bag, as I just did, and then you will find yourself wanting said same 'last' bag in other sizes.







    Yeah. So, I now want one in the Small size, but alas, the Carbon Black color is no longer available, and I just do not like that dusty color of the new Carbon color. To the SBL family, please please pretty please consider bringing the Carbon black color back (even in a limited run) - I would be forever grateful, then I can own my last bag ever, in 2 awesome sizes!!

    Like it a lot

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have a chestnut medium round satchel I bought for work. The bag passed my 4 criteria - 1) Didn't want it to look too masculine, 2) Bag had to look size proportionate to my 5' petite frame, 3) Needed to fit my 13" laptop, 4) Needed to be high quality and last forever (I hate shopping).







    The medium satchel is PERFECT....and folks, a 13" laptop does fit in the medium. It needs to be stretched and it will bulge the sides a bit but it's hardly noticeable. I'm glad I didn't get the large. Laptops, tablets - all these devices are all getting smaller. In the future, I think a medium will continue to be the best for carrying to and from work. I also bought a black, small round satchel to use as a purse. It doesn't work as well for me as it feels too bulky compared to what I carried around before. Might just take more time to get accustomed to. Again, I hate to shop so really need this to last forever......







    I agree with the other reviewers in that I wish the inside back pocket were wider. A front pocket or 2 small front pockets would also be a welcome.....just for a bit more organization.

    Growing on me...

    by - verified purchaser |
    Dave,







    When I first received my medium satchel I have to admit, I was a little dissappointed because I didn't pay enough attention to the size. At the time I was carrying a laptop that just wouldn't fit. It sat hanging on the back of a door for a year until my wife said, "That was a waste huh?" I pulled it off the door gave it a second look. I have since adopted an ipad & it fits! I purchased a boat to be closer to the office & I spend a couple of nights a week aboard. I have since discovered I can get two changes of clothes, my shaving kit, ipad, and the rest of my cords & chargers into my satchel quite comfortably & arrive to the office or boardroom in style.







    I will be adding a backpack very soon for international travel so, I will be seeing you soon...

    Every day, all day

    I have used a great number of Saddleback Leather's products over these past few years. Every piece has its purpose, and I cherish them like good friends.







    As a wheelchair user, my daily go-to SBL companion is the small chestnut, first-generation satchel. It has traveled hundreds of thousands of miles with me, and it has never failed me.







    Despite the miles, it looks even better than when it was new. It actually still gets compliments. Intelligent people recognize and favor quality over pretentious labels.

    It is my Smile Bag !!!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have finally got my Satchel, i got it in a tobacco brown,that was my first choice and later I got hugely confused as the color in the pictures don't do justice . I read each review on the satchel and watched umpteen number of you tube videos ! this was done to define the size that would work for me. I am 5 feet 1.



    This is a great bag, the quality is impeccable, it gives you a good feeling there is so much Love in this product it comes right through . The smell of the leather is awesome. the feel of the bag is beautiful , I cannot make any suggestions accept Dave and Suzette please make shoes !!! too.



    I have also bought a couple of other things from saddleback to go with the satchel !



    Ladies this is not a heavy bag ! for an everyday use it is brilliant ! but you can't use it as a pouch / cross body sling just to run basic errands it is a little big for that.



    Keep up the great work ! A big God bless to Dave, Suzette, your team and your families !

    Love my bag!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I had over the years bought countless leather bags and cases to carry my stuff to work. None lasted too long with the weight of all my 'stuff.' Zips broke, straps broke, you know the thing...



    Needed a new one but wondered which size to go for. After several patient replies to my emails I bought a medium satchel for my ipad and other work stuff.. The ipad 2 in its case fits great along with my camera a small dslr, kindle touch, stuff bag for the leads etc and even occasionally a steel water bottle. It is always comfortable, always secure and always cool looking. The outer pouches hold my trail mix and a small tin of emergency dark chocolate....



    Love my bag.

    Best bag in the world. And I travel a lot so I know what I'm talking about.

    by - verified purchaser |
    I have a medium satchel and it's probably the greatest thing that's ever happened to me as far as bags are concerned. I can't leave the house without my iPad and not only does the device fit perfectly, but it is protected well by the heavy leather.

    I am a photographer and it's hauled various heavy pieces of camera equipment in a pinch. I also have carried jars of tomato sauce, books (including textbooks), various food items, a small dog, groceries, clothing and numerous other items.

    This thing has major wow-factor too. I can't even begin to list how many compliments I've gotten on it. It is a fabulous travel bag and, in addition to my camera bag, it's all I need when we go on a trip.

    Between this and my Vintage Shoe Company wingtips, I am sporting fantastic assortment of American made goods that I'll most likely never have to replace.

    I do everything I can to support American businesses and I'm glad you guys are around. Thanks for turning out such an excellent product.

    A huge fan,

    Best bag ever

    by - verified purchaser |
    I got my satchel about 18 months ago, and at the time, sort of wished that I'd gotten the suede lining, as the pigskin was pretty stiff. After 18 months of use however (almost every day) it's starting to break in very nicely. It's still pretty firm, and I doubt it will ever be a 'floppy' bag, but the fact that it's taken 18 months to get to this stage should say everything it has to about how tough these bags are built.



    This bag takes my daily stuff, 11" macbook air, power cord for it, canon G11 digital camera, with space left over for other stuff. I occasionally throw a book in there, or a drink, with no hassle.



    I do sometimes wish that the smaller pocket part of the bag was a little wider, but that is literally my only criticism.



    My only real regret is that I don't really need any of the other bags, so I can't buy them. Well, I say can't...shouldn't...

    THE BAG

    by - verified purchaser |
    Got this bag about a year ago..or less. I got the small at the time. At times I wish I would've gotten the medium though. But let me tell you, the older it got, the more comments and questions I got. At first, it does honestly feel very stiff. And nobody really takes notice of your new bag.



    But like I said, after wearing it everyday and at times dragging it through dirt, grass and on the cement, I have to say it really does look better day after day after day. It develops that nice patina you get from the sweat on your hands, the rain, the wind. Now it feels soft on other parts and I look forward to how it will look in another 10 years.



    It's a tough bag: it's held my SBL wallet, my phone/s, my ipod, my pens, yes all 50 something of them, my pencil case, hand sanitizer, car spray, a subway sandwich with chips, a water bottle, my travelling case and several keys. Yes people, it fits a 6" subway sandwich. And no matter how you pull it, it won't break. Trust me, I've tried.



    I do wish the side pockets were a little bigger and the inside pocket also but it holds what I need well. One other thing, make sure you close it, if you don't EVERYTHING will spill out so make sure the buckle is on. The D rings come in handy especially if you have some carabiners to hold other things i.e ropes, a tripod, water bottle, another carabiner.

    Amazing

    by - verified purchaser |
    I bought a medium chocolate satchel last week.



    As most people here, I was terribly impressed.



    I do have a few things I think are worth noting:



    It is heavy duty without a doubt... But it is not nearly as heavy as I expected from others suggestions. I was pleasantly surprised.



    It is stiff, but again, not nearly to the extent I expected based upon comments. Another unexpected positive.



    The medium satchel is a bit smaller than expected. I contacted saddleback in advance to make sure my 11" MacBook Air would fit. It does, but it is a SQUEEZE. I have no intent to return, but may have opted for the large had I known. I'm a big dude.



    I've already ordered 3 more items!

    Large satchel is close to perfect

    by - verified purchaser |
    Round satchel (large, dark coffee brown). My satchel arrived yesterday and it's as close to perfect as I can imagine - my wife has already started hinting about needing a new bag ... I need a bag that comfortably holds an A4 folder, which is why I'd held off on ordering the older design. But the new design is about an inch wider and the bag fits everything perfectly. My test pack was: iPad in the indside back pocket, A4 binder, 400ml water bottle, pencil case, Rhodia webnotebook, Clairefontaine 1/2 Zap Book, lunchbox (180x180x60mm). In the inside pockets: pocket knife, chap stick, pencil sharpener, pen, Doane utility notebook, keys; collapsible headphones (Sennheiser PX 100). In the outside pockets: collapsing umbrella; A7 Rhodia notebook, pen, phone (Lumia 800). (Yes I carry a lot of notebooks!) The bag is also quite light - I haven't weighed it but it doesn't feel like it weighs much more than the nylon laptop bag it's replacing; certainly not a concern. Overall I couldn't be happier - can't wait to head off to work with it slung over my shoulder. Thanks Dave! PS Oh yes, needless to say it's absolutely gorgeous - strong sturdy leather, even stitching, no loose threads, all rivets aligned etc ... I'm quite sure it'll outlast me. PPS I'm going with five stars because I can only evaluate it on quality, appearance and capacity right now and for me it scores top marks in all those categories. But from reading lots of other reviews on Saddleback bags I'm confident it'll weather beautifully and last forever (or at least for 100 years).

    Great bag for daily use!

    by - verified purchaser |
    Let me start by saying WOW!

    I ordered my bag on Tuesday and I had it in my hand by Friday! It was well packed and fast delivery!

    Upon opening the bag I was greeted with the wonderful smell of the leather. I ordered a Daves Deal and I cannot find a single flaw on my bag. The quality of this bag is far superior too any bag I have ever been associated with. I was carrying a small cloth backpack so this weighs a little more, but the style and looks are far superior. I loaded it down with the things I carry daily and already am in love with how all my stuff fits in the bag. Now I will just have to listen to all the jokes about my man purse because I dont think I will be leaving home without it! I will be back for more of Daves Deals!

    Leather Perfection

    by - verified purchaser |
    After discovering the Saddleback website the other evening and thoroughly reviewing products and videos for several hours (where does the time go?!), I followed up my pouch purchase (using it to hold cigars and related paraphernalia) by ordering the large round satchel in chestnut. It arrived earlier this week and it is awesome. I anticipate using it for my carry-on when traveling. Will be perfect for carrying iPad, magazines and books, among other things. Unmatched workmanship! I love Saddleback!

    Don't be off by the weight ladies!

    by - verified purchaser |
    I wanted to leave a review that dealt with the 'weight issues' this bag has. There are none.



    I was worried about the weight so I put extra weights in my old satchel and carried it around to see how I would cope. The old satchel strap dug into my shoulders and if I had not fallen in love with the saddleback satchel I might have been put off buying it based on my poorly conceived experiment.



    I am so glad I bought the satchel.



    When it arrived I was pleased to find it was actually more comfortable than my old lighter leather bag. The shoulder pads the satchel comes with (it comes with two) more than make up for the extra bag weight.



    If you're a woman, and you're worried about the satchel weight, relax, it's very comfortable. You won't regret it.



    (Also as an aside the iPhone 5 fits neatly in the outside pockets so you can listen to your music as you walk or ride to work)
