So I've been looking at the Saddleback stuff for some time trying to decide whether or not to drop the coin on a bag. After reading a very persuasive post by Mercop awhile back, I decided, the tactical look wasn't the way to go for. I had already adjusted my clothing for concealed carry some years back just to maintain the anonymous look. I decided it was time to do the same with my EDC bag. After determining I prefer the messenger bag style of carry, I was able to narrow down my bag choice. I like the idea of long lasting leather. After some thought and adjusting my EDC bag contents to better suit my needs, and after a lot of reading and comparison, I opted for the Saddleback large satchel in chestnut. I ordered it the night of 9/2, it shipped the following day 9/3, and it arrived on 9/7 right after the Labor Day weekend. My first impression after taking it out of the plastic was ....!! It is one good looking well made bag. I was pleased to find that the interior wasn't just unfinished leather. The inside and outside pockets seem smaller than they appeared on the manufactures website, but I believe they expand out some if you put something larger in them. There is a strap with a clip on it to attach keys to so you can drop them in and not loose them. Here is my typical EDC packed in. An iPad, which fits perfectly in the back pocket. A small Unikit that has my moleskine notebook, couple pens, pencil, sharpie, Fenix PD-30, paracord, leatherman, and compass. I've also got a steno pad and book stuffed in. I normally don't carry books around, but I've been reading World War Z. Here without the book I turned the Unikit and steno on their side, I also put my Hideaway knife in the inside pocket. I've still got room for more. I could also put everything in the Unikit in the two inside end pockets since just about everything has a clip to reclaim space. This is just my first impression of the bag. We'll be off to work tomorrow to put it to the test. Dimensionally, this bag is 1" shorter and 3.5" more shallow than the medium messenger bag. Since I was trying to get away from the larger than needed bags, this just seemed like a good fit. I guess we'll see.
