Bamboozled by Biker Brother

by

I just got my new classic tablet bag yesterday. My brother stopped by on his motorcycle and now I am without a classic tablet bag! (What is a sister to do with little brother puppy dog eyes begging, "Pleeeease!") He has been searching for the perfect bag to carry his things when he is on his bike. While he found other bags that function, he was not happy with their durability or style. This bag meets all his needs while not taking his man card for carrying a "murse"! He has a iPad 1st generation in a hard case that slides in and out of the main compartment easily. (He could probably fit two of them in there.) The front pocket has plenty of room for his keys, wallet, and phone.

Not too big. Not too small. Just right!

by

It's rare that I don't have my Saddleback large Satchel with me when I leave the house. It has plenty of room for my camera gear, iPad Mini, and other items. But when I travel light with just a Fujifilm X-E2 camera and iPad, the Satchel feels too big. I need something smaller. This Classic Tablet Bag is the answer.







It has room for my camera, iPad Mini, and even my Levenger Circa junior size notebook in the main compartment. The iPad Mini also fits in the front pocket. This bag is not too big or too small. It's just right. It looks great in DCB and is built like a tank (of course).







Like my other Saddleback bag, people ask me about it, so my only suggestion is to include more than 2 of Dave's business cards when the bags are shipped. They disappear fast!

Great little Bag

by

This is my second Saddleback Leather bag but one of many different Saddleback products I own. As usual the quality of the stitching and leather is top notch. I really appreciate the construction of this bag (which utilizes a similar build as the rounded satchel). Its a very comfortable size for carrying over long walks and many hours. I use it to hold my bible and other books while I engage in a volunteer ministry work. Its just the right size to fit everything I need.

Amazing Quality Bag!

by

Bought this bag for my partner's birthday. She wanted a new purse that was thin and functional. We actually picked it out together. The size was perfect and the quality of this bag is amazing!! The price is very reasonable too. We were both very impressed by the leather quality, stitching, pocket sizes/placements and other small details that make this piece a work of art.







I've always been impressed by the quality of Saddleback products and this bag was exactly what she was wanted. There's also lots of room...and there's 4 compartments! The coffee color is a nice balance between the black and brown and appears to match with just about everything. We have no doubt that this bag will last for 100 years...and possibly a 100 more.







Thanks for setting the bar high. We can't think of a company that produces higher quality leather products! Money well spent! If you'e interested in purchasing a leather product with exceptional craftsmanship, look no further. This is the real deal.







Thanks again Saddleback!!

LOVE!!!

by

All of my Saddleback bags that I've purchased thus far have been been used as a purse/handbag. This is my third Saddleback purchase and I LOVE it! I was debating between this bag and the hobo purse and this one won. Honestly, you can't beat the price either. The hobo was a little too big for a "smaller" purse to add to my collection. I also like the look of this bag better. I have the 2012 limited edition small briefcase in carbon black, the medium dry bag in tobacco, and now this tablet bag in chestnut. I am a handbag collecting freak and I have many of them! However, my three Saddleback bags are my pride and joy! I love when new designs come out because I buy these bags as a gift to myself. I love the quality of the leather bags as well as what the company stands for. This bag really is simple and light yet has enough compartments to keep you organized.







If you are a woman and looking for a simple good looking purse (the look of this bag is quite the trend right now actually) you will LOVE this bag!

the leather beast

by

I was surfing a long time the saddleback leather website before I decided to order this Tablet Bag.







It took a few days and I had to fetch it at the custums in a city nearby my home village.



And what should I say, the bag is a dream of a leather bag. The leather is very solid and the bag is in the best size to me. I don't need a bigger one so far.



The dark coffee brown is really a beautiful colour. The extra pocket in the front is perfect for my fountain pens. And in the normal pocket I transport my Midori Travelers Notebook, iPad, Wallet and my iPhone. And two of my co-workers asked me already where I bought that beautiful case :-).







That's it for the moment, sorry for my bad english, I'm german :-).

Love love love!!!

I actually bought this to use as a purse. After wavering between the hobo purse and this one, I chose this. I like the design of this bag a lot. The shape, the size, and the features are perfect. The style of the bag is actually the trend everywhere you look. It's lightweight and small, but fits all of the essentials. I'm seriously obsessed with Saddleback bags. I have 5 Saddleback bags so far and I LOVE them! For the quality and warranty of these bags, I'll take these bags over a "designer" one any day. I also feel good buying from Saddleback knowing that they are a socially responsible company. These bags are worth every penny!!

Perfect Small Leather Bag for Women

by

This is my first review ever. I just recieved my Classic Tablet Bag today and I LOVE IT. It is the perfect size for us ladies, not too big or heavy. I carry my phone, keys, checkbook, mini iPad, and SBL Front Pocket ID wallet in it and still have room for other items. The mini iPad will fit perfect in the front pocket if you don't have it in a thick case. The straps are just the right length for us short people and the dark chocolate brown is beautiful.

Love it!

by

Yes, the iPad & the iPad mini (as well as my iPhone 6) all fit perfectly in this bag. But it works just as well as a purse. My large saddleback wallet fits great. I bought it in chestnut to match all my other saddleback items, but I want it in dark brown as well. I hope they will be in stock soon!

Tablet Bag

by

I just received my Tablet Bag today and it is great. I have several bags already and this is perfect for the man on the go. Not to big and not to small. I carry an iPad, Kindle, moleskine notebook, wallet, pocket knife, extra battery charger, and keys and still have room to spare.

Tablet Bag

by

CONFESSION: I own a knockoff of one of the larger bags... It was a gift, okay?



The contrast between the real Saddleback and the "other", even though the knockoff is of fair quality and construction, is night and day. My real Saddleback Tablet Bag has already been on tour with me and I even put it right on stage with me. It will appear on television with me next week.



Credited to the obvious quality and craftsmanship poured into and all over a real Saddleback, this is clearly the last bag of this size I will ever have to buy and with three children and a grandson, there will surely be a fight over it when I'm dead.



I hope to collect more pieces from this outstanding and superior company.

Great EDC bag

by

My wife got this for me as a Christmas gift and I couldn't be more happy with it. I had been looking for a good everyday carry (EDC) bag to hold all my stuff but couldn't find anything that fit my needs. But this is just perfect.







The quality is top notch and the weight is good without being too hefty. The shoulder pad makes wearing it very comfortable and the bag itself looks great. Currently I have in it a Moleskine, flashlight, sunglasses, keys, wallet, leatherman sidekick, phone, e-cig, batteries and headphones. It fits all of it easily and with room to spare. Best of all it doesn't look like a man purse when carrying it around.

Love this completely and utterly

by

Had my eye on the small satchel for a couple of years but always worried that in the end it'd be a bit big for regular use. Then this beauty came out just in time for my 40th - and it is perfect. Not too big, but room for everything for a couple of days round London (phone, purse, keys, tickets, can of pop, few little bits of shopping). Strap has plenty of adjustability to suit, and basically it is just brilliant. Oh, and my ipad fits in in its saddleback case too, although I won't do that too often. You'll love it like I do. Get one! (And always, always go for tobacco...well, I do - four pieces and counting....)

The Saddleback Leather Addiction Continues....

by

2014 was a big Saddleback Leather year for me. My first piece was a dry bag, followed a bit later by a front pocket briefcase. Later in the year, I purchased a leather pouch and 3 more dry bags as gifts for friends. Finally, as an end of the year gift for myself, I ordered a business card case and the tablet bag. The tablet bag is yet another outstanding piece of utility, craftsmanship, and art. My wife calls it my man-purse, and I am fine with that. Plenty of space for more than an iPad - room for chargers, plugs, etc. A nice mini alternative to my front pocket briefcase when I don't need to take my laptop with me for the day, but I want my iPad and accessories and still want to be hands free. The business card case is gorgeous, but a tight fit for business cards - I'm sure it will loosen up over time and will allow me to stuff a few extra cards in there soon.







Oh, and I have not mentioned this before in other reviews, but I really appreciate the long shoulder straps with all of the pieces. As a big man, often times shoulder straps make the bag ride up higher than I would prefer. Saddleback's generous straps allow even a big guy like me to wear them cross body like a bandolier and still not ride up to high. Just one more example of the quality and value of Dave's designs!







So far, all of my personal pieces have been in tobacco, the dry bags I gave as gifts were chestnut and black. All the colors are gorgeous, but I am drawn to the tobacco. As I got on the site to right this review, I found myself eyeing the wallets...... hmmmm, maybe a nice large bifold wallet in chestnut would be just the thing to start the new year and add a little color variety to my personal collection.....

Marvelous Bag

by

I got this bag in Tobacco for Christmas and I absolutely love it! The perfect size for the items that I carry on a daily basis. I'm able to hold my bible and moleskin (in a saddleback cover) with the necessary cables in my main compartment. In the front compartment I'm able to fit my ipad mini. This bag is just perfect and it was quite the gift indeed!

My 2nd tablet bag!

by

I loved my tablet bag in chestnut so well that I bought another ... this time in tobacco. I grabbed it because it was the only color left in stock at the time. I have to say I was sort of surprised when I got it because it was darker than the picture on the web; it was more a true tobacco, as it is called. But as I used it, it sort of lightened up. In short ... I LOVE it and I can't wait until the carbon and the dark brown are back in stock. I carry my iPad mini in the small front pocket and generally use the iPad compartment as a purse. Of course, the iPad fits perfectly in the large compartment, even in its Saddleback iPad case (which was my first introduction to Saddleback Leather). But this is the PURSE I have been dreaming about for years - not too big, not too small. The bag is incredibly comfortable to carry; the cross-body design distributes the weight so that it doesn't feel heavy at all. I have it adjusted so that my right arm has a convenient resting place, as well. I can't tell you how many compliments I have had on this bag (both colors). Everyone wants to know where I got it! Then they see my matching large wallet ........... :)

I received the package Thursday. The leather smells better than the best perfume. I chose the chestnut bag. Took it to work today and I'm so pleased with all that I can carry in it. I'll get to take it to church Sunday if the weather isn't bad. Thanks Dave for blessing me with a key ring. I really appreciate all the detail that goes into your products. I consider them money well spent. Be blessed.

The Best Small IT/iPad Bag Ever!

by -

I work out of my truck everyday so I'm in and out, on site, or traveling the back roads of Mississippi, I needed somewhere to keep my iPad, iPhone and all the cables and chargers that go with them....Enter, The Saddleback Tablet Bag! I keep my iPad Air 2 in the main pocket along with a composition notebook. iPhone in the rear pocket for easy access, all the cables, chargers, earbuds, pen, pencil, and iPod in the front pouch, with plenty of room to spare! Needless to say this bag will be with me everywhere I go for a long time to come...until my son takes it from me, at which time I will have to buy another or upsize to the Messenger Bag or Briefcase(I actually can't wait for that to happen....).







Thanks for a great bag, and for keeping the lore of the handmade leather good alive and well.

Sadly, scientific measurements

by

were not competing with real-world bag stuffing. Just in case anyone needed to know, a Crossway journaling bible will not fit with a large Moleskine and a Nexus 7 comfortably. Which is most unfortunate, because this bag is both adorable and awesome. It very readily accommodated my notebook and Nexus, along with a pen case, wallet, and glasses case laying over top. I personally need something with a little more depth, so I'm going with the small satchel. Plus, the hardware for backpack mode will be much more handy for me.



While it's still in my possession, it gets sniffed perpetually. I will be sad to send it back.

Good quality bag

by

I bought the tablet bag a few months ago. I also bought the big wallet and it fits inside nicely but does take up a lot of space. I thought the bag may be tedious or difficult to close with the buckle but it's really not. The leather is softening nicely and it's quite easy to close. I love the length of the strap and it's easily adjustable. My only wish it had an internal key fob - I really miss that. I got the coffee brown after going back and forth between that and tobacco. Perfect classic color for me. The FAQ for "What color should I get" is very helpful.

I wish it was just a bit wider

by

Great bag. The quality is outstanding. I didn't pay close enough attention to the dimensions. At 10 1/2" wide it won't hold letter sized papers and it's a tough fit for magazines. I hoped to use this for a weekend/vacation work bag when i don't need to carry my [Saddleback] briefcase and and as a carry-on when I'm traveling with my [Saddleback] water bag. So now I'm trying to figure out a use for it so I'll have a reason to keep it because it really is a great looking bag.

Super functional

by -

I love this bag! I really was surprised that it holds my iPad in SBL new case, big wallet and a pair of glasses in case! The front pocket is also roomy and easily holds my keys, couple of lipsticks and cords. I only wish the front closing strap see longer...I can stuff this great little bag, but getting the strap buckled is a struggle if I do. The carrying strap is so long....wish I could have less if this and more front strap. This is a great edition to my SBL collection!

The perfect tablet bag!

by -

This bag is just perfect! The size, shape and the way it works is perfect. I love the option for shoulder bag, true cross-body, or carry handle. I was afraid that the handle might make this too heavy but the weight is just fine. Everything I need to carry, tablet, phone, wallet etc fit in it just fine. Would recommend to anyone and would buy again!

Great Companion To A Briefcase Or Backpack

by -

I am lucky enough to have a Job were I have a good size desk with a docking station for my laptop and a big screen monitor. It was nice being able to quickly grab my laptop and put it in my Squared Backpack with everything else I needed if I desired to work outside of the office.







At some point I realized the power of Microsoft Office's cloud service and how seamlessly it worked with my android smartphone. So I decided to get the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 because of it's Hancom Office Suite app (Which in my opinion is just like having MS Office on your android device) which syncs with my Microsoft Cloud server. With that being said, I got to the point were I was only needing my tablet to do work outside of the office. I had a HUGE issue at that point. I was using a HUGE backpack for the purpose of primarily carrying a tablet from the office to Starbucks. So I decided to look for something smaller.







It was during my search for something smaller that I first notice the Saddleback Messenger Bag. I figured it would be the bag I would get; however, I was not a fan of the vertical rectangle nature of the bag. Then I saw the Saddleback Tablet bag.







The Saddleback Tablet Bag was everything I was looking for in terms of style. There was only one problem... The Saddleback Tablet Bag was made for iPad sized devices and not 12.2 inch laptop replacement tablets. I wasn't sure how it would work out; but I took the plunge anyway and ordered it.







To my surprise, my Note Pro 12.2 was able to fit (***It is a very tight squeeze***) with much prayer! Hahaha:-)







The tablet is able to fit in the main pocket while being connected to a bluetooth keyboard case. In addition to the tablet and case, I am able to fit a thinline Bible in the main pocket while putting a bluetooth mouse and tablet charger in the front pocket. There is room to spare in the front pocket in case I wanted to throw my keys and or a pack of gum in there.







I was on the fence about getting this bag because I did not know if my tablet would fit; so here are the dimensions of my Galaxy Note 12.2. If you tablet is smaller than this then it will fit: (11.64 x 8.03 x 0.31 in)







Overall I am very pleased with this bag because it is a small and light heavy duty Saddleback product that fits the needs of the guy or gal who only needs to carry a tablet and accessories. It is also perfect for the folks out there who have turned their tablet into a truly business/work machine.







thanks,

A Great Purse

by -

I'm pretty much the Goldilocks of purses. I wanted something not too feminine, not too heavy, not too big, but big enough to carry my planner. It had to handle getting wet or getting banged around without ripping or staining. The cross body option had to be adjustable for my long torso and it had to be quality. Although I've had this bag on my wish list since it came out, I don't have a big budget so this was an investment piece for me. I rewarded myself after reaching a long-term goal. After using it for a few days, I quit looking for anything else. This bag is just right.







I have a SBL Messenger Bag, pouch, and Bible cover that I use as a planner cover, so I knew the quality would be excellent. It works great as a purse. I can fit my planner and wallet easily in the main compartment with accessories in the front pocket. The front strap was a little hard to open at first, but has loosened up with use. My usual color is the Tobacco, but I went with the Coffee Brown on this one and am not disappointed. I'm glad it has the lighter interior. The weight is right for everyday use. The bag will stand on its own, so there is no dealing with a floppy purse. Also, the handle on top works well even if the bag is not latched in front.

Story

In college, I bought a 1977 VW Bus and drove it 2000 miles down to the tip of Baja California to see what was there. The top popped up and made into a bed and the kitchen cabinets had a sink with an 8 gallon water tank and an electric built in pump. It was perfect for traveling and Blue and I had many a restful night sleep in it. Well, we drove down to Cabo San Lucas and there pretty much wasn’t anything there. So I turned around and drove back. It was real disappointing and I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody. But I would recommend the bus to everybody. It was perfect. It had just enough storage space to take along with me everything that I needed, but not enough space to take more. Kind of like this bag.

I work out of my truck everyday so I'm in and out, on site, or traveling the back roads of Mississippi, I needed somewhere to keep my iPad, iPhone and all the cables and chargers that go with them....Enter, The Saddleback Tablet Bag! I keep my iPad Air 2 in the main pocket along with a composition notebook. iPhone in the rear pocket for easy access, all the cables, chargers, earbuds, pen, pencil, and iPod in the front pouch, with plenty of room to spare! Needless to say this bag will be with me everywhere I go for a long time to come...until my son takes it from me, at which time I will have to buy another or upsize to the Messenger Bag or Briefcase(I actually can't wait for that to happen....).







Thanks for a great bag, and for keeping the lore of the handmade leather good alive and well.

Sadly, scientific measurements

by

were not competing with real-world bag stuffing. Just in case anyone needed to know, a Crossway journaling bible will not fit with a large Moleskine and a Nexus 7 comfortably. Which is most unfortunate, because this bag is both adorable and awesome. It very readily accommodated my notebook and Nexus, along with a pen case, wallet, and glasses case laying over top. I personally need something with a little more depth, so I'm going with the small satchel. Plus, the hardware for backpack mode will be much more handy for me.



While it's still in my possession, it gets sniffed perpetually. I will be sad to send it back.

Good quality bag

I bought the tablet bag a few months ago. I also bought the big wallet and it fits inside nicely but does take up a lot of space. I thought the bag may be tedious or difficult to close with the buckle but it's really not. The leather is softening nicely and it's quite easy to close. I love the length of the strap and it's easily adjustable. My only wish it had an internal key fob - I really miss that. I got the coffee brown after going back and forth between that and tobacco. Perfect classic color for me. The FAQ for "What color should I get" is very helpful.

I wish it was just a bit wider

Great bag. The quality is outstanding. I didn't pay close enough attention to the dimensions. At 10 1/2" wide it won't hold letter sized papers and it's a tough fit for magazines. I hoped to use this for a weekend/vacation work bag when i don't need to carry my [Saddleback] briefcase and and as a carry-on when I'm traveling with my [Saddleback] water bag. So now I'm trying to figure out a use for it so I'll have a reason to keep it because it really is a great looking bag.

Super functional

I love this bag! I really was surprised that it holds my iPad in SBL new case, big wallet and a pair of glasses in case! The front pocket is also roomy and easily holds my keys, couple of lipsticks and cords. I only wish the front closing strap see longer...I can stuff this great little bag, but getting the strap buckled is a struggle if I do. The carrying strap is so long....wish I could have less if this and more front strap. This is a great edition to my SBL collection!

The perfect tablet bag!

This bag is just perfect! The size, shape and the way it works is perfect. I love the option for shoulder bag, true cross-body, or carry handle. I was afraid that the handle might make this too heavy but the weight is just fine. Everything I need to carry, tablet, phone, wallet etc fit in it just fine. Would recommend to anyone and would buy again!

Great Companion To A Briefcase Or Backpack

by -

I am lucky enough to have a Job were I have a good size desk with a docking station for my laptop and a big screen monitor. It was nice being able to quickly grab my laptop and put it in my Squared Backpack with everything else I needed if I desired to work outside of the office.







At some point I realized the power of Microsoft Office's cloud service and how seamlessly it worked with my android smartphone. So I decided to get the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 because of it's Hancom Office Suite app (Which in my opinion is just like having MS Office on your android device) which syncs with my Microsoft Cloud server. With that being said, I got to the point were I was only needing my tablet to do work outside of the office. I had a HUGE issue at that point. I was using a HUGE backpack for the purpose of primarily carrying a tablet from the office to Starbucks. So I decided to look for something smaller.







It was during my search for something smaller that I first notice the Saddleback Messenger Bag. I figured it would be the bag I would get; however, I was not a fan of the vertical rectangle nature of the bag. Then I saw the Saddleback Tablet bag.







The Saddleback Tablet Bag was everything I was looking for in terms of style. There was only one problem... The Saddleback Tablet Bag was made for iPad sized devices and not 12.2 inch laptop replacement tablets. I wasn't sure how it would work out; but I took the plunge anyway and ordered it.







To my surprise, my Note Pro 12.2 was able to fit (***It is a very tight squeeze***) with much prayer! Hahaha:-)







The tablet is able to fit in the main pocket while being connected to a bluetooth keyboard case. In addition to the tablet and case, I am able to fit a thinline Bible in the main pocket while putting a bluetooth mouse and tablet charger in the front pocket. There is room to spare in the front pocket in case I wanted to throw my keys and or a pack of gum in there.







I was on the fence about getting this bag because I did not know if my tablet would fit; so here are the dimensions of my Galaxy Note 12.2. If you tablet is smaller than this then it will fit: (11.64 x 8.03 x 0.31 in)







Overall I am very pleased with this bag because it is a small and light heavy duty Saddleback product that fits the needs of the guy or gal who only needs to carry a tablet and accessories. It is also perfect for the folks out there who have turned their tablet into a truly business/work machine.







thanks,

A Great Purse

by -

I'm pretty much the Goldilocks of purses. I wanted something not too feminine, not too heavy, not too big, but big enough to carry my planner. It had to handle getting wet or getting banged around without ripping or staining. The cross body option had to be adjustable for my long torso and it had to be quality. Although I've had this bag on my wish list since it came out, I don't have a big budget so this was an investment piece for me. I rewarded myself after reaching a long-term goal. After using it for a few days, I quit looking for anything else. This bag is just right.







I have a SBL Messenger Bag, pouch, and Bible cover that I use as a planner cover, so I knew the quality would be excellent. It works great as a purse. I can fit my planner and wallet easily in the main compartment with accessories in the front pocket. The front strap was a little hard to open at first, but has loosened up with use. My usual color is the Tobacco, but I went with the Coffee Brown on this one and am not disappointed. I'm glad it has the lighter interior. The weight is right for everyday use. The bag will stand on its own, so there is no dealing with a floppy purse. Also, the handle on top works well even if the bag is not latched in front.
