“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stops these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

If you’re old enough, you probably remember when U. S. Postal employees trudged the city streets with mailbags like the No. 43. Before the age of TV and email, the high point of the day often came with the delivery of the mail.

This bag is made in the Col. Littleton Workshop of our vintage brown polished leather with a dry-milled leather flap, which is extremely soft and allows the bag to contour to its own shape. It has one big pocket on the inside front. Adjusting shoulder strap has a shoulder pad, or carry it by the handle. A neat copper tube rod across the back of the bag enables it to retain its shape. Solid brass hardware. Brass pommel shield on the front shows Col. Littleton logo and bag’s serial number.

Outside overall bag dimensions are 13″ H x 17″ W x 4″ D at top opening. 6″ D at bottom. Great laptop/iPad® bag. May be personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate under the front flap.

Inside Dimensions are 12″ H x 15.5″ W x 3″ D at top opening.  5.5″ D at bottom.

Shoulder Strap Length: 34″-42″

Bag Weight: 4.5lbs.

    Work of art.
    I just received my No. 43 Mailbag Briefcase today-and must say this is not a bag…it is a work of art! I can easily fit my 13″ mac book pro and its protective case, along with my files/magazines and my computer accessories -power plug, external hard drive, etc. And I still have room for more stuff! The good part– it’s not that heavy either! The workmanship of this bag is incredible, it smells of rich leather and sits comfortably at my hip since the bag is so well balanced. I really debated on spending this much money on a “work bag”… but this is the last work bag I will ever need to buy. Also, I have to give a shout out to the customer service which was excellent!! (Thanks Rebecca!) The bag arrived quickly and was packaged in a very creative way. I will be buying things from Col. Littleton for a long time.

    Worth the wait
    I have coveted this bag for over a year. Buying several smaller items in the meantime only convinced me that A) The quality of these products live up and even surpass the reputation, and B) I needed the perfect bag to carry my other Littleton products in! After saving my birthday, sick bonus, and other spare cash I finally gave myself permission to make my number 1 wish list purchase. This bag is simply perfect. Wonderful quality, the perfect blend of supple soft leather and life lasting durability. I could not recommend this bag in higher terms. A special thanks to Rebecca for great customer service!

    The Real Deal
    I just received my Mailbag case. It is the real deal. I have collected many cases over the years, most of them from a very fancy English maker on St. James Place in London. They are fine and dandy in their own right, in a sort of stiff upper lip kind of way. A bit rigid. This bag, on the other hand, is sort of renegade. Seems like the kind of thing Josie Wales would carry. Beautifully made, sturdy and supple at the same time. Thanks for making a great American product.

    Money well spent
    I have had this bag for 2 years now. Still getting compliments. This bag gets better with age. I know I will be carrying this bag 20 years for now – that is if it make it that long.

    This has to be the best leather carrier/messenger bag I have ever encountered. WOW. Talk about one of a kind. The workmanship is OUTSTANDING AND MADE TO LAST ! Great investment on something that will last for a very long long time !
