I love it!

by

I travel a lot, and I like to carry a smaller bag on the airplane with easy access to my passport, Bible, ipad, journal, case for my glasses, etc. All items fit (with room to spare) in my new tobacco Indiana Satchel. As always, the quality and look are second to none, and like all of my other Saddleback pieces, I love it. "Singapore, my new bag and I will see you very soon!"

 

Pleased as punch!

by

Love my tobacco Indiana Satchel. Perfect size, perfect color and the perfect weight for a small framed lady. Very pleased!

 

A Perfect Gift

by

My wife gave me this satchel for Christmas. Absolutely another perfect bag from the Saddleback team! Holds a lot more than I originally thought. Perfect for my every day carry.

 

Great Messenger Bag

by

I ordered the Indiana Satchel in the limited walnut color and love the the size and style of this bag. It has a slim 3" profile which is comfortable for cross body wear and the capacity is considerable. The 3 lb. weight is slightly less than my small satchel and it provides a nice rugged look without bulk. The back pocket is very useful for tickets, mail and other paperwork. I am a 5'4 female and i think this bag is well sized for both men and women. I have been searching for the perfect messenger bag and this one meets the criteria.

 

Love my Indiana Satchel!

by

I've been carrying my Indiana Satchel for a couple of months now. I think it is awesome. I use it for my EDC bag daily. It takes all my usual gear, a couple of knives, flashlight, keys, wallet, pill boxes, and a few other items, and it has room to spare! I've stuffed it with cookies, an occasional water bottle, and for daily carry, it's really great. I love it. I also have a messenger bag, but this is my usual go to.

 

Perfect EDC bag for a guy

by

Perfect size and design for everyday carry. I don't see a way to design an EDC bag better than this. This is an EDC bag any guy would be proud of. Inside pockets are perfect size for a Buck knife and multi-tool, and the bag is big enough to hold an ipad, phone, wallet, keys, lighter, with some room left. But it is not too big for everyday use in almost any situation. I carry a medium Leather Satchel for work, but for all other purposes I will be carrying the Indiana Satchel daily. I'll never worry about being limited by pocket size again. Thanks Dave!







As always, the leather is really great. I do not know any other company that offers this kind of look, or this quality. My Indiana Satchel (tobacco, of course) has a ton of vein, scar & stretch marks - there is nothing else like this on the market.

 

Great satchel!

by

I love my tobacco Indiana satchel! I carried it to church this past weekend and it held everything I needed it to (Bible, iPad, bottle of water) and it looked great while doing it! I'll definitely be carrying this bag more often!

 

This bags rocks in Chestnut!!

by

This bag is most definitely a classic in every sense of the word in the SBL line-up. It is lightweight yet built solid and sturdy as a ROCK. It is VERY comfortable on the shoulder, which is how I prefer to wear my bags. I love the dimensions and the buckle closure. I bought mine in Chestnut, which is rich & vintage-looking, and it reminds me somewhat of the Walnut color. I think Tobacco is obviously lovely, but Chestnut has an understated attractiveness that just continuously grows on you because its tones are so rich and subtle. I have several SBL/Love 41 bags, and this Indiana Satchel is now one of my favorites. (Actually, I love all of them. Hopelessly addicted....LOL.) I love Chestnut! New favorite leather color!

 

I Will Love This Forever...

by

I just got my Christmas present early and was I surprised! I've been wanting a nice side bag to carry my belongings in (sunglasses, phone, iPad, check book, reading book, etc.) for when I travel out. This is the most substantial bag on THE market that we've found (actually, my wife found it!) and I love it. I can't wait to look through all your very well made products for more!

 

Another winner

by

I don't ever review anything. Really. I don't. I bought a coffee brown briefcase from here maybe 10 years?? ago. Just a solid and handsome piece. I've been very happy with it. So, when I was looking for a smaller bag for the winter, just to carry all my peripherals, I checked here first. Ended up with the black Indiana satchel. I love it. It is made the way I wish more products were made, honestly. And great price for the quality. Great job again!

 

Loving it

by

I love this bag in Amaretto. Love the interior pocket. Wish this had come with my messenger bag. I understand why Dave never leaves home without this bag. Wish it we're a little taller, but otherwise nearly perfect.

 

Amazing Style and Construction

by

These days, you just don't find briefcases, messenger bags, totes, tool bags, or anything similar that's constructed so well. This satchel is tough, and I haven't found even a tiny flaw in the cutting or stitching that make or break an item like this. Plus, the style is outstanding -- just big enough to carry my essentials, yet small enough to be convenient to carry. I gambled on spending a bit more for the Saddleback Leather Company version than some competitors, and my gamble paid off, big time.

 

Perfect alternative to a briefcase when one is not needed.

by

After becoming disabled and needing a cane to assist me with walking, it became a lot harder to carry things like deli sandwiches, water bottles, mail, books and even my cell phone. I looked for simple messenger bags but all of them were for laptops or at least built for them. This well made masculine and simple but practical satchel fit the bill perfectly for those moments I don't need to carry my laptop, I have a briefcase for that along with all of my essentials like my check book, folios, and other tech gear. One large pouch with a small pouch inside and one on back make this perfect for those quick trips to the market, post office, pharmacy or any place I don't need to lug my larger stuff with me. I can tell that It will last for years and be a joy to carry with me wherever I go.

 

Wish I Had Bought it Years Ago

by

I've carried a satchel when traveling overseas and always ended up thinking I would keep doing it at home too--never did. A couple of months ago I decided I was confident enough of my manhood and tired enough of sitting on my wallet, having a big phone in my pocket, and not having things like sunglasses with me that I'd do what I wanted and deal with the jokes if they came. They did not. The most common comments from my buddies have been to the effect of "bet that's handy." and "I wish I had the guts to carry one." This is a great bag. It exudes quality. It is just the right size for daily stuff and obviously meant for men. I wish I had bought it years ago and won't be buying another cheap one later this year when I travel to Central America and Asia. If you buy you will be glad you did.

 

How did I miss this one?

by

Well I totally underestimated this bag. I own a crazy number of SBL bags, and somehow really never got around to this one until recently. But it's great! I'm back to order it again in a second color. (Number one in chestnut, now number two in tobacco.) It's perfect when I want to downsize a bit, but it is still solid as they come for a smaller bag. I also like how it is a slim profile, so it rides close to the body - but again, solid, solid, solid. Wish I had ordered one of these a long time ago!

Story

Roald Amundsen (A.D. 1872 - 1928)



The year Roald Amundsen reached the ripe old age of 15, coincidentally, was about the same year his mother became the most active prayer warrior in all of Norway. Roald’s curiosity drove him to risk his life over and over again for the joy of experiencing the unknown and the uncharted. Those desires eventually took him, but not before he lived one of the coolest lives recorded in history.



In 1903, he was the first to make his way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific by going over the top of the North American Continent, now named the Northwest Passage. In 1911, Amundsen was the first to reach the South Pole and in 1926, the first to reach the North Pole. I can only imagine the beautiful scenery and animals and all around fun experiences he took in and had. Makes this man want to go out and explore something right now.



And you can bet that when Amundsen was purchasing gear for an expedition, he never said anything like “But this one is only half the price of the really good one, and it’s probably good enough.” or “But it looks so nice and the lining has a really pretty world map on it”. When your life depends on it, quality trumps it all, period. If a tool failed, and he or one of his crew lost life or limb, the “100% Money Back Guarantee” was cold comfort. The selection of tools and materials were mission essential and vital to his team's existence and success.



Did Roald Amundsen become an inspiration to thousands, live the amazing experiences he did and are we talking about him so long after his death because of the gear he carried? Absolutely not. He was successful because he was the kind of man who valued a quality life, who surrounded himself with quality people and carried only the highest of quality gear. Now you go and do likewise.
