Another Roundup in the Saddleback Leather Customer Photo Series
We like to say our leather bags are the ugliest they will ever be the first day you get them. So do you know what happens as you use them? They get really good looking, then really, really good looking, and then at some point Saddleback Leather just turns gorgeous! These Saddleback Leather Customer Photos illustrate the point.
We asked some of our customers if we could repost a few pics that we found in social media land. These pieces are beauties and will give you a good idea of what your leather will look like as it ages. So join me as we get to know some of our fellow leather brothers and sisters and drool over their unique leather and canvas bags.
We’ll start with this 10 year old, vintage two-rivet Large Classic Briefcase in Dark Coffee Brown. @oowasa has taken this briefcase all over the world including Canada, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Thanks for taking good care of him and letting us check in with you!
Next from our very own William, we have this shot of his 9 month old Tobacco Front Pocket Backpack hanging out on the Colorado River. William loves the Front Pocket for it’s storage and organizational capabilities. All those buckles and flaps really take on some great character too.
@kokorosan1 shows off his Waxed Canvas Simple Front Pocket Backpack and his new Waxed Canvas Tool Bag on Instagram. He also made a video of his waxed canvas in the water and he reported back that it was safe and dry inside!
“When your bag doubles as a dog anchor” Or maybe Niro, an Alaskan Malamute, is the one babysitting a Chestnut Classic Briefcase. Scott’s bag is about 7 years old and if you want to see more pics of Niro and maybe some more leather check out Niro’s (and his human, Scott’s) Instagram collection.
@krisbarger shared a recent photo of his family packed and ready for vacation! Now that is what I call traveling in style! Kris started his collection in 2010 and says it’s really hard to pick a favorite but decided that his top 3 favorites are his Classic Briefcase, Waterbag and Travel Case.
One of my favorite things is when people get creative and come up with what we like to refer to around here as “Saddle-hacks” – finding alternative uses for their leather. @_mitch83 figured out how to turn his Coaster holder into a media stand for his iPhone and charger.
Nice job Adam! What Saddle-hacks have you figured out? Share your ingenuity by commenting below.
Oh, and by the way, Easter is almost here, so you might want to hunt through our site for a few hidden Easter eggs.
