No. 20 Leather Dispatch Bag
My wife has told me on occasion that I’m a “legend in my own mind.” So, I designed this bag not only for me but for all you legends out there, either real or imaginary.
Before adding this bag to our line of dispatch/business/tech bags, I road-tested the first prototype for almost a year to make sure its performance matched its unabashed good looks. It has become a personal favorite; so, if you’re wondering who has the No. 20 Dispatch Bag, Serial No. 1 . . . it’s the Colonel.
This bag has a hint of a vintage military feel to it with pockets galore. In the main compartment, I carry my iPad®, my No. 18 Portfolio, an extra legal pad and a couple of folders. Two large pockets on the front with ball stud closures are ideal for your cell phone, charger, ear buds, keys, etc. Two generous rear pockets hold extra papers and documents while four pockets under the front flap work well for business cards, receipts, note cards and the like.
Made by talented leathersmiths in our Col. Littleton Workshop of our soft, dry-milled leather with a double adjustable polished leather strap. Solid brass hardware. Military-style Lift-The-Dot closure. Serial numbered on brass pommel shield on inside pocket.
May be personalized with three initials on brass plate.

Inside dimensions 12.5” H x 9.75” W x 1.5” D

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.
