No. 17 Hunt Bag in Tobacco Brown American Buffalo

For those of you who appreciate tradition, the No. 17 Hunt Bag is your purse.

As Leonardo da Vinci said,
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

We couldn’t agree more. This bag is simple, straight-forward and always in style. It’s street savvy but with a vintage, country estate feel.

Functionality and Design 

Colonel designed the No. 17 Hunt Bag in our more rugged, wonderfully textured American Buffalo. The deep, rich tobacco brown body of the purse is complemented with our vintage brown polished steerhide front flap, pockets and strap. It is appointed with a stainless steel cinch buckle to complete the “horse country” look.

Features include a sizable back pocket (10”W at widest point x 4 ¾”H), a small pocket under the front flap and a large inside pocket. The crossbody strap adjusts from 44” to 52” in 1” increments, and the design also includes a convenient hand grip.

Handcrafted in the Colonel Littleton Workshop in Lynnville, TN USA. Great for a trip to the derby or a fast-paced jaunt downtown. Product packaging includes a protective cotton canvas dust bag with the Colonel Littleton logo.

Perfect size for everyday carry. Overall dimensions are 7.75”H x 11”W x 3”D. Inside dimensions are 6”H x 9.5”W x 2.5”D.

When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”

  1. Don’t let this little guy fool you. It is small but mighty. It is a timeless design and is made to perfection. The metal buckle adds a vintage look to the bag and the leather is smooth and firm but not stiff. The large exterior pocket holds my big iPhone snugly. There are also two inside pockets for smaller items. This will be an heirloom to pass on to my daughter or grandchildren.

  2. My husband and I just returned after a visit to your store. We had the opportunity to meet Colonel Littleton, Charlene and Lynn. The warmth and hospitality was exceptional. Add to that the products in the store. I walked away with this handbag and have already enjoyed using it. The quality combined with the unique look. We are loyal customers and appreciate the pride all of you take in the your products, presentation and welcoming of visitors.

  3. My very first!!!! This bag is perfection! Size, pockets, shape, design and a SURPRISE gift. Nothing better. Love all my bags and so fortunate to have a few but this is hands down the best. Thank you, Col Littleton

  4. Absolutely my favorite and my first!!! The bag is beautiful and superbly functional. Compliments are endless! I love it and should bet 10 stars.

  5. My wife said this is a purse that will last a lifetime. The quality is priceless.

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 steerhide 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.
