Air Warrior Series: How I pack my Saddleback Leather briefcase

My good friends, Michael Hyatt and Chris Brogan have both done posts recently sharing which bags they use when travelling. I travel a lot so I thought there might be someone out there who would find it helpful if I shared which laptop bag I carry and how I pack it. I’ve tried several really nice bags over the years and I’ve settled on the Slim Saddleback Leather (client) briefcase. I absolutely love it for several reasons I discuss in the video.

    Interesting that you never mentioned the smell of the leather. That in itself would sell me on the bag. Well done!

  2. I was going to ask you about the price, but I just visited their website. $400+, but you just have to love 100yr guarantee. Funny…I still have the 6 piece set of Pierre Cardin fabric travel bags that I bought in 1983 for $99. American Express had a special!

  3. Youre right. ¬†Theyre not cheap…but theyre worth every penny. ¬†Like Dave Munson says, Theyll fight over it when youre dead!

  4. I know what you mean. There really is nothing like soft wonderful leather. I still have my first leather briefcase, given to me in 1979 when I was made an AVP for a very large bank.
    Leather takes on a life of its own, supple, your blood, sweat and tears!
    One question: before you switched to an iPad, did it easily hold your laptop?

  5. I came back by this evening to see how this story is unfolding. When you mentioned Indiana Jones I thought of a post I wrote last summer about my son. You have to read all to way through to see the connection.

    May I ask which size of briefcase you purchased — medium (15″ x 11 ¬Ω‚Äù x 4 ¬º‚Äù) or large (17″ x 12 ¬Ω‚Äù x 4 ¬º‚Äù)? Thank you,
