black bag found

black bag found

Some of my regular readers and twitter followers are probably sick of hearing about my black bag search saga. I've tried and returned no less than 4 bags, not to mention the countless ones I've saved to my favorites file. At long last, the search is over (at least for now). Thanks to this post on Vanessa Jackman's blog and a helpful anonymous commenter, I found Saddleback Leather Company. A bag that's fashionable, practically indestructible, and has a 100 year warranty? Sign me up. The hardest part was narrowing the choice down to one bag (and I may or may not have cheated on that). Oh and did I mention this little number converts into a backpack? Yessss...

PS Check out the gallery of customer photos. My favorite is this one.

  5. Nice bag! Seems like it will last you for a long, long time. I didn't even know there were 100-year warranties out there...:)

  18. Can't beat an 100 year warranty, congrats on finding it! I've given up on finding a good bag all together, i'm more of the burn-and-churn style of bag ownership and end up with cheap bags that fall apart after a couple of months.

  26. I love Saddleback bags. Have been trying to get this satchel in black. May I know yours is small or medium? Also, I prefer the original carbon black. They no longer carry that color now....:(

  27. @Andrea Mine is the medium and it could be the carbon black, but I can't remember now. Hope that helps!
