Things are getting heated here at Saddleback HQ. Just like the rest of the country, we are utterly divided over our votes for President. Half of Team Saddleback is passionate about a certain boisterous blonde who can’t help standing out in every single conference room. The other half is certain that the best candidate is the practical one that offers experience, function, and compartmentalization.
Of course, we’re talking about candidates for The Saddleback President of Bags, 2016.
In the Red Corner:
Weighing in at 8lbs, at 18″ Wide, 13” High, and 9″ Deep, the XL Saddleback Leather Classic Briefcase is built to hold more BS than a Washington politician. This guy is a noise maker. Walk into the room with one of these and you’re going to meet with either applause from everyone in the room or you’re going to offend someone with your obvious disregard for what so many people colloquially refer to as “the norm”. The Classic can pack a pistol, a pipe, and a pin hammer and still have room for a 17’’ laptop and a notebook. The bag evokes another time that the Classic’s campaign manager calls “better”. Vote Team Classic and “Make America Classic Again.”
In the Blue Corner:
Weighing in at 7.5lbs, at 17” Wide, 12” High, and 7” Deep, the Large Front Pocket Briefcase is for the philosopher and the multitasker. This one gets things accomplished with a little bit of something for everyone. Those exterior pockets make the Front Pocket capable of keeping life highly organized and therefore highly effective. “If you’re looking for a President of Bags who can make your life easier,” says the Front Pocket’s campaign manager, “you’re going to want to go with the only candidate who has actual experience organizing different things in different pockets.” Vote Front Pocket and “The Future is in your Pocket.”
Whether you’re an “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” sort of fellow who says what he thinks and does what he wants regardless what everyone thinks and is subsequently adored for this behavior, or an “I better stayed organized if I want to take on the world” sort of person who prefers to calculate, curate, and ameliorate, there’s a candidate you can count on here at Saddleback Leather. Wouldn’t that be something to see other places?
Vote here for your choice of Saddleback Leather President of Bags 2016:
May the best bag win…
