GP No. 1 Bag

The Colonel puts the GP No. 1 in the “must have” category. He styled this rugged, all-purpose bag after an antique Swiss Army bag in his private collection. The ingenuity and craftsmanship of the original comes alive in this modern-day version with a myriad of uses.

Carry it by the detachable shoulder strap, strap it around your waist or attach it to your belt. Makes an exceptional travel/touring bag or use it to collect all those items you carry in your automobile. It’s a sporting bag, a wine tote or a ladies’ carry-all. Remove the strap and it’s a shaving kit with ample room for all your personal gear.

Made in our workshop of No. 8 cotton canvas. Brown bridle leather trim. Solid brass hardware. Hand-laced leather front trim. Two-position closure. Inside snap hook  security closure. Two inside compartments. 9”H closed x 11”W x 4”D. May be personalized with three initials on brass oval plate. Khaki.

“The longer you carry it, the better it looks,” says the Colonel.

Shoulder Strap Length: 29″-52″

  1. The bag is rather small but the quality is excellent as is the packaging, shipping and customer service. I wish I could afford one of the lager all leather bags!

  2. Make sure to pay attention to the listed dimensions! I didn’t and wasted $275 on a bag that is tiny. The pictures make the bag look much larger. I had the bag personalized so I’m stuck and extremely dissapointed (In my choice) because the bag is extremely underwhelming. Once again make sure to read the dimensions. Quality is good but isn’t much better than it’s mass produced, made in china, designer counterparts. Shipping and packing are awesome.

  5. I recently ordered the No1 Grip and also ordered the No 1 GP (black) for my wife. She immediately loaded the bag and has put it to use. She is very happy with the room in this bag and likes the fact that the quality and design allows her to go anywhere and be in style. Well done!

  6. My Husband ordered this bag for me as a gift and I have carried it for probably 6 yrs and really have enjoyed using it. I had to send it in recently for repair and can say that the service and prompt return was over and above perfection!!
    Thank you !!!


  7. Love it!
    Just picked this bag up yesterday! Could not be happier! Looks great, plenty of room, and excellent quality! I will be buying another bag in the future to add to my collection.


  8. Wife loves it!
    Wonderful bag for trekking and traveling in rough and tumble areas. Is there an option to purchase a leather shoulder strap in place of the canvas?

    Col Littleton: This product currently features a Canvas strap only.


  9. Excellent bag – please bring it back in green
    I love this bag, I used it for eight years until there were holes worn through the canvas and the strap finally wore out and broke. If only it was still offered in the green I’d order another one to travel around for another eight years.


  10. Top notch bag
    I can’t wait to start using this bag for hiking. It’s really well made as I suspected it would be since it comes from the Colonel. I’m really really pleased.

Our Story

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.
