  1. Received my document bag mere hours after ordering – I don’t think I think I could’ve driven to Lynnville and back faster than the shipping, so the order and customer experience was phenomenal. Then opening the box, revealed an absolutely fantastic bag, perfect for work and travel. I wanted something smaller than the briefcase, but large enough to tote my CL journal and Macbook and this fit the bill. Dimensions are absolutely on point and it looks and smells fantastic.

  2. So, everyone needs to get the memo on this—Holly A. from HR is absolutely right. This is, by far, the most unfairly underrated bag in the whole collection. Yes, you take the Commander and the Saddlebag around for show (I have both). But, this little gem is the most useful bag I’ve owned. It carries everything you could need. If you are me, you will forever think you’re going to rip the bottom seam because you overstuff it (never happens). But, it’s the most sturdy, all-around useful bag you will find. It’s also one of the bags in which the copper tube really pays off—holding everything firmly in place. It’s lightweight, strong and universally useful—the utility infielder of the Litttleton collection. It also looks great in spite of all the abuse. Don’t underrate it. Holly A. deserves a raise for her great insight.

  3. I bought this for a Christmas gift for my husband. I wish I had taken a picture of his face – he was just like a little kid who had gotten the best gift ever! This bag is sleek and the perfect size for a laptop, several files, and papers. My husband is always getting compliments on how attractive and functional it is. I would definitely recommend this gift again.

  4. This is the best bag I’ve ever owned bar none, and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. I’ve had the bag for about a year now and it just gets better looking with age. Stellar product.

  5. Purchased this bag, used, from a friend. Got to admit, even used this bag looks better than many of the new bags that I see around. The bar at the top keeps this bag looking nice and uniform with most anything you carry in it. GREAT bag and GREAT folks to deal with.

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 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.

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.
