This giveaway is open to entrants worldwide. Yes, that means you too, Canadians.

About the Saddleback Leather Classic Briefcase

They call it the bag that started it all. Saddleback Leather founder Dave Munson designed his first briefcase, and what would become the foundation for the Classic Briefcase, while teaching English to kids in Southern Mexico. Today the bag stays true to his original concept of "made so well that my grandkids would fight over it while I was still warm in the grave," with a few tweaks to streamline its aesthetics, and modernize its functionality.

Features include:

  • Made with 4 pieces of full grain chrome tanned leather - as few as possible to preserve the briefcase's rigidity and structural integrity.
  • Constructed with no breakable parts (i.e., zippers, snaps, buttons).
  • 7 pockets: rear magazine-style; 2 side for water bottles/thermoses/sunglasses; 4 interior, 2 for pens, 2 for cables and chargers.
  • 2, 4-1/4" deep interior sections.
  • 2 side straps that can be used as belts, tie downs, or tourniquets.
  • Interior key clip.
  • 8 D-rings for lashing.
  • Convertible to a backpack.
  • Sized to fit underneath the seat in front of you on an airplane.
  • Converts to backpack.
  • Adjustable strap length of 34-1/4" to 59-1/4".

All Saddleback Leather cases come with a 100-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Dave says, "If, for any reason, your piece doesn't live up to what we said it would, then contact us or have one of your descendants get ahold of one of my descendants and we'll take care of you." The Large Classic Briefcase weighs 7.6 pounds, and measures 16" wide x 12" high x 9" deep on the exterior, and 15-1/2" wide x 11-1/2" high x 8-1/2" deep on the interior.
