No. 1 Saddlebag Briefcase

“I designed the Leather Saddlebag Briefcase in tribute to American History, the U. S. Cavalry and the Old West! Its design, reminiscent of the saddlebags carried by the U. S. Cavalry from the 1850’s, is contemporary enough for today’s busy executive who likes something different.”

– Colonel Littleton

Organization and Functionality 

Front straps with workable buckles also have snap closures behind the buckles for quick access. Inside front and back canvas dividers with pockets for pen, business cards, cell phone, etc. Roomy enough for a laptop computer. Outside back pocket. Adjustable shoulder strap with pad. Brass D-ring provides a good place for attaching one of our brass luggage tags. Has a serial-numbered brass plate on the back and may be personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate under the front flap.

We think of the No. 1 Saddlebag Briefcase as the quintessential Col. Littleton bag. It is the first all-leather bag that Colonel designed for the line and the one he has carried virtually every day since 06/25/01 when his is dated. There’s no way he would part with it due to the rich patina it has developed over the years.

16″ overall height, including handle. Inside dimensions are 12″ (H) x 15″ (W) x 4″ (D). Sized to fit many laptops as well as your iPad® in its protective case.

(Please measure your laptop and compare dimensions to ensure a proper fit.)

  1. My grandfather was a real deal cowboy. When I carry this bag, I get the feeling I’m just a little closer to the man he was. I love this piece, carry it every day. I think everyone should “cowboy up” and getcha one!

  2. Visited the store in Lynville today. Had so much more than I expected. Purchased the #1 Saddlebag and love it.

  3. No. 1 Saddlebag Briefcase:
    This is a great product; it is worth the price! I opened the box that it arrived in and knew from the first minute that it was a quality product. The leather, heavy-duty snaps and D-Ring are built to last. All items are made of brass, unlike a lot of other briefcases on the market today with fake leather and cheap latches and snaps. This product is built to last and I think it will age with beauty. I am a person that believes you get what your pay for, I’ll take quality over price anytime. I called customer service to confirm the size before placing my order and the staff member that I spoke with was very helpful and friendly. This is the kind of company that I prefer to do business with, I highly recommend the product and the people standing behind the product. I will not hesitate to order other products in the future!

Our Warranty

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.

Our Leather

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 steerhide 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.

Our Craftsmanship

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.
