Like I said, if it were mine, the scratches wouldn't be a concern (I'd do worse to the bag in short order).
A new bag is on its way. I'll post an update when my friend receives it.
Just checking in - been over a year since I visited here. Still happily sporting my large briefcase, which is 2 years old now and looking as awesome as ever!
I wanted to report that upon contacting Saddleback customer support, they were VERY friendly and helpful when I reported my problem with my medium bifold wallet cracking my cards. They just asked for a few pictures to see what I was talking about, and instantly shipping me out a newer version of the wallet that's supposedly been corrected for this! While I'm a little bummed that I have to break in another wallet, I'm super-jazzed to know my faith in the Saddleback brand hasn't been ill-placed and that they really do honor the 100-year warranty!!
I'm also curious: Recently aquired some coasters and mouse pad for my newly redone home office, and will be getting two large deskpads in the near future.
I'd love to know if in some of the upcoming products and prototypes there is a leather desk caddy? Or leather valet? Dave is always mentioning in the youtube videos that there's new products in the works, so we can never be sure when something might come out. My timeline for getting these items is pretty short, but if I knew there was going to be a Saddleback offering, I'd gladly wait!
My friend just picked one up at my suggestion and this is how it came:
The scuffs are what they are, but I am particularly disappointed in the visible outline of the support under the handle. Not at all the quality I was expecting. I hope his issues are resolved or I'll feel like a sucker for suggesting this bag to him.
Updated. The new bag came:
I still don't love how the support bulges out along the top panel, but it looks much nicer. Kudos to Saddleback for getting things right.
For the bag that Scott made for me, he used a really thick, tough piece of leather under there, and I can carry my laptop and charger in there without any support problems from the handle/top area.
I'm interested in purchasing a Saddleback leather large briefcase in the chocolate brown. Can anybody give me their preferences for the suede or pigskin options. I called the company & they said that I would have to wait for the suede option but they should have some shortly. Not sure if it is worth the upcharge & wait (not that I am in a rush).
Even if they were the same price and there was no wait I'd lean towards pigskin. Pigskin seems nicer looking (to me) and more durable.
I'm surprised there would be an upcharge for suede. Perhaps because manufacturing one is a one-off deal.
