you posted a picture of your traveling gear, including the saddleback messenger bag. could you tell me what size, model, and color it is? it's the coolest bag i've ever seen and i want one. it's hard to tell the exact color and size on their website.
thanks in advance,
i bought your book and check your blog everyday. you're doing a fantastic job.
Thanks a lot Peter.
Yes I get that comment a lot regarding my bag. It looks pretty nice. :-)
The small nicks and scratches give it more personality even if they can be easily removed with some leather grease.
|All that gear fits into the Saddleback medium briefcase in the upper right corner.|
Saddleback leather motto is “They’ll fight over it when you’re dead” and there’s probably some truth to it.
Mine is a dark coffee brown briefcase. Medium size, the smallest one they have. These briefcases also convert into backpacks using the strap and the rings attached to it.
Please trust me on this (Saddleback says so too): Don’t buy the L or XL models unless you’re a very big guy, (+6 feet high quarterback big, not state champion pie eater big). Even then I’d advice you not to go for the bigger models. Saddleback briefcases are the toughest leather briefcases in the planet, but that comes at an expense. The leather (of excellent quality) is easily twice as thick as an ordinary bag. This makes it very rugged but also very heavy.A Dark Coffee Brown Leather Briefcase, Backpack
The medium size is just about right. You can fit a laptop, some documents, bottle of water, survival kit and other goodies you might be carrying. If you’re smart about it, you can fit everything you need in there. A bigger briefcase would be heavier and fully loaded all but impossible to carry all day.
I took mine to my trip to USA, kept it with me at all times. Excellent bag, can’t recommend it enough.
