Leather Book Bag Laptop
I naturally tend to gravitate toward items with a military history, as I am an ardent admirer of their precision, rugged good looks and adaptability for the task at hand. When a WWII military officer carried the antique military briefcase in my personal collection, I’m sure he wasn’t thinking “laptop.” However, if you fast forward 70 years you’ll find me inspired to make a leather Book Bag laptop with a definite nod to this piece of military history.
Of course, the bag can be used as a traditional brief bag; however, I designed it big enough to accommodate your laptop, all your laptop paraphernalia, iPad® and all that other “stuff” you haul around.
Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop of vintage brown dry-milled leather with our polished leather trim. Adjusting strap at the inside top enables you to adjust side panels in or out. Working buckle front closure can also be snapped for convenience. Solid brass hardware. Copper tube spine on top equally distributes the weight of the bag while accommodating the adjustable, removable shoulder strap and carrying handle. Inside divider separates laptop from other contents. Special pocket for iPad®.
Inside dimensions are 12″ H x 17.5″ W x 4″ D. Solid brass serial-numbered I.D. plate under front flap. May be personalized on brass oval plate. Shoulder Strap Length: 34.5″ – 42.5″. Bag Weight: 4.65lbs.
Product packaging includes protective cotton canvas bag.

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.
Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.
I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
