No. 1 Saddlebag Briefcase, Rugged – Serial No. 008
This rugged No. 1 Saddlebag Briefcase was handmade in our Lynnville, TN Private Stock Workshop by specially skilled craftsmen using our vegetable-tanned Steerhide leather. This particular hide had an even more rugged texture and more character than our traditional leather making this a truly one-of-a-kind Private Stock piece. Most manufacturers would discard hides that contain character or signs of natural wear, such as barbed wire scratches, bug bites or other markings.
But at Col. Littleton, we love leather with character. In fact, we ask our local tannery for hides that display unique features. These hides go directly to Colonel and he uses them to design stellar products you won’t find anywhere else for our customers who like something unique.
Front straps with workable buckles also have snap closures behind the buckles for quick access. Inside front and back canvas dividers with pockets for pen, business cards, cell phone, etc. Roomy enough for a laptop computer. Outside back pocket. Adjustable shoulder strap with pad. Brass D-ring provides a good place for attaching one of our brass luggage tags. Has a serial-numbered brass plate on the back and may be personalized with three initials on the brass oval plate under the front flap.
16″ overall height, including handle. Inside dimensions are 12″H x 15″W x 4″D. Sized to fit many laptops as well as your iPad® in its protective case.
(Please measure your laptop and compare dimensions to ensure a proper fit.)
Shoulder Strap Length: 34.5″-42.5″
Bag Weight: 3.3lbs.
Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas dust bag.

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.
