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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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 :-).
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!
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!!
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.
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!
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.
