Over the years, I’ve made many an observation. And one is this – women carry more stuff than men. Guess it just comes with the territory. So I designed this Dispatch Bag to carry stuff; lots of stuff and still be manageable.

This All-American bag is a slimmer, scaled-down version of our Saddlebag Briefcase. Two dividers with pockets for cell phone, pens, etc.

Inside solid brass snap hook for keys. Made in our workshop of our soft, vegetable- tanned dry-milled leather in vintage brown with solid brass hardware. Front straps have workable buckles and also magnetic snap closures for easy access. Solid brass serial-numbered oval plate on outside front.

May be personalized with three initials on brass oval plate under front flap.

Inside Bag Dimensions are 10″H x 12″W x 3″ D.

Total Strap Length: Adjusts from 36.5″ to 44″

Bag Weight: 2.3lbs.

    I just recently purchased this bag and I absolutely love it. It holds everything perfectly organized and I know it is going to last a lifetime. I am totally spoiled now and every other leather purse is sooo cheap compared to my Col. Littleton bag.

    Just got my newest bag. Love it and it is the perfect size for everyday use. I carry tons of things and this holds it all. Every item I have gotten from the colonel has been the highest quality and wears well. It just gets better with use and age.

    Bought this as a Christmas gift for my wife. About a week before Christmas she could not locate anything in her old bag and exclaimed, “I’m just going to go buy me a new purse for my Christmas present!” My dilemma was to keep the Colonel Littleton bag a secret or keep her from going to get a new purse. Fortunately, she held off. When she opened this present, she darn near hollered! “Oh my, oh my, oh my!” She not only was ecstatic but immediately began to explore the interior. Happy with the ability to organize the contents, she clutched it to her and smelled the leather. “Wow! What a bag!” Needless to say this old Santa got a gold star for his Christmas gift selection! Great product super service!!

    I purchased the dispatch bag 4 years ago and it is still my go-to bag. It is used as my everyday purse. Truthfully, I have carried it almost every day since purchasing it. It has been with me in all weather elements and continues to look better with age, as is every single CL product we own.
    The inside features multiple small and large pockets, make out of canvas, that make organization that much easier to see and maintain. The flap is easy to open and close.
    I am continually stopped and asked about the dispatch, I suppose the high quality leather is that noticeable. Plus, the age and patina it has give it that much more life. While the price was initially a shock, I would pay it all over again. Considering how much I have used this bag, the places it’s been, the outfits it works well with I have not a single regret with this purchase.

    The service the Colonel Littleton team offers it’s customers is unlike anywhere else. It is personalized, kind and top notch making the money spent that much more worth it.
    Anytime I am remotely close to this area I love to stop in, shop and visit with the team here. Business done right and customers made to feel special. Thank you very much, Colonel and team!

    Beautiful Craftmanship
    I admired the No. 5 Dispatch Bag for years before purchasing one earlier this year as a gift for myself. It is a beautifully made bag. The leather is thick, of superior quality, and tough as nails. The canvas dividers are handy. You don’t find craftsmanship like this hardly anymore. Even though it will last forever, I wouldn’t mind buying a second just to keep one in pristine condition! Love it!

    sturdy bag
    I purchased this bag as a b-day gift for me from my husband šŸ˜‰

    The bag is sturdy and substantial. I use it as a book bag for work. It allows me to carry my slate computer and a few composition books. I wish it was a bit wider, but am confident that the leather will relax a bit with wear.

    The strap, although long, was not long enough to wear crossbody, so I ordered the longer strap. A few inches made the difference!

    I have two suggestions, think about a a back pocket for the bag and consider making the longer straps a choice when we order.

    Your customer service is great! I will be coming back for more bags!

    Love it
    Beautiful bag, superb craftsmanship, sturdy and has loads of room inside! There’s no doubt this bag will hold up to daily use for years and years and still look gorgeous.

    So happy I found you Colonel!

    Best Handbag. Ever.
    This handbag has received more compliments in the two months I’ve owned it than all the other bags in my life, combined! People don’t just want to look at it, either…they want to handle it, open it and really get a good look at it.

    Even better than that it’s utility exceeds it’s appearance. The inside pockets and dividers are very useful, and it holds MUCH more than it looks like it will/does without getting huge and bulky like other bags. It’s held it’s shape remarkably well, even though the leather started softening up immediately. (I did use a good, high-quality conditioner/protectant on it before use.) I have absolutely nothing negative to say about it (not unlike ALL the other CL products I’ve ordered before.)

    All the other bags in my closet are getting jealous, wondering if they’ll ever see daylight again! I can’t promise them anything. I LOVE THIS PURSE!
