If you’re traveling for a couple of days or even a fortnight, the No. 4 Leather Grip may become your new best friend. Not only is it roomy, it’s a show stopper – so be prepared to answer a lot of questions from fellow travelers.

Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop, the bag has a copper tube at the closure that helps evenly distribute the weight of the bag when loaded and provides a unique and distinctive detail. Constructed of vintage brown polished leather at the top and bottom for strength and dry-milled leather in the body for character and softness. Adjustable, removable shoulder strap in addition to handle. Solid brass hardware. Rigid bottom with five protective brass feet. Y-strap with buckle closure.

Serial-numbered on brass pommel shield. May be personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate on the front flap. Inside dimensions are 14.25″H x 18.5″W x 8″D at top and 7.5″D at bottom.

The No. 4 Leather Grip would have been right at home traveling in a Pullman Car in the late 1800’s or on a DC-3 in the 1940’s. It’s just as right today.

Shoulder Strap Length: 41.5″-49.5″

Bag Weight: 6.45lbs.

    This is a very nice and huge bag. I was on a 4 day trip, used packing cubes and it held all my clothes and toiletries , business and casual, for all 4 days. It had room to spare and weighed a ton. At 5’7″ and 140 lbs it was a chore to haul it around the airports. After this first trip I will need to find some thick padding for the shoulder strap to prevent it from digging into my shoulder. Without an outside pocket you could find yourself opening and closing this bag frequently which also takes time as it has 3 straps to buckle and unbuckle each time. A separate bag will be needed for air travel if you plan on accessing contents from this carry on. The bag is beautiful and it will be an heirloom. Because this bag has soft sides it is as tall or short as its content. I like that its crushable because it can fit under the seat which the #5 won’t due to its construction. Overall I highly recommend this bag, for men a lot stronger and bigger than me. I do not recommend this bag for smaller people since it can be heavy. My philosophy is, if you need a carry on that holds a lot and are strong this bags for you, if you don’t need its carrying capacity don’t buy it, there are better choises for you on the colonel!

    If you want the perfect travel bag and an eye catcher to boot, this is the bag….have the #1 and #5 and don’t get me wrong they are fantastic…this bag is for big boys…and by that I mean this is not a toy bag this is a travel bag and I love it….made a trip from my home in Washington State just to visit Lynnville and was worth every penny and minute spent….

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    The bag itself is great for a single travel bag, no need to check on flights fits fine in most overhead compartments. This bag is my number one travel bag now for short three-to-four day trips. The only down side is the weight, but I’v never complained with the shoulder strap.

    ** Highly recommended **
