    Wow! $189

    I’ve been using a zip lock bag.

    It should arrive Friday.

    I will fondle and report back.

    I was afraid to get the smaller one although I like it’s appearance better.

    Oh...good for you. In all sincerity, I was on their site too and I almost pulled the trigger on a Dopp kit and/or a briefcase. Yes, please let us know how you like it

    Yup. And you can by a car for $15k too. No judgment. It is all about what floats your boat.

    I travel globally for work and I loathe it. When I HAVE to go, bringing some representation of civility and luxury helps. Side note: I visit sh*t holes around the globe.

    I get it. I have a leather one my ex gave me. What with the rules for carry on items, I’ve just been using the 1 quart zip lock bags for all that stuff.

    No advice, but I still have the dopp kit bag my wife's grandmother gave me many years ago. She passed away in 1996, I had it for quite years before that.
    It is a wonderful appreciated gift.

    Oh..indeed. When I only do carry-on, i do the same. My apologies. I didn’t mean to be judgmental.

    Thank you! :wavey:

    I have their Front Pocket Leather License Wallet and Business Card Holder and have been happy with them for years.

    I come here some days not knowing I want something until I see it. Then I HAVE to have it! :supergrin:

    Hmmmmm.....I have a big birthday coming up. My 60th on September 2nd.

    I have the medium bi-fold wallet, the credit card holder, and the large portfolio, and I cherish them all.

    Maybe my wife would appreciate a link in her mailbox as well?

    Maybe it's a regional term, tho I've lived in five regions and had 20 years of Naval service with guys from every region and a few other countries and have never heard it.

    See post 40.
    When I get in my hotel room it is opened and hung by its hook, from whatever is available in the bathroom.
    It's closed the morning I leave.
    There's no reason to close it in between.


    PS, those leather kits look of good quality and I don't mind paying for something good that will last, but they seem too small for my stuff.
    I didn't have a hanging kit, while in the Navy and I always hated digging around for what I wanted.

    It arrived today and I tore into the package like a kid on Christmas morning!

    The smell, appearance, and quality are top notch!

    I displayed it on my desk like a hawt chick with a new purse and got many compliments. :supergrin:

    I liked the appearance of the smaller one better but was afraid it wouldn’t be big enough for all my hair care products so I got the bigger one.

    I now think the smaller one would have been fine but I am sure I will be able to fill it.

    I am now trying to not buy the briefcase or duffel bag or backpack...,.

    I don’t think you or any recipients of a gift from SaddleBack will be disappointed.

    In 2015 I bought the wallet and business card holder and they have been wonderful.

    Now that I see a bigger product I have more appreciation for their products.

    I promise no one will be disappointed! :cheers:

    I just discovered they have many videos on YouTube.

    And a showroom in Fort Worth, TX.

    I bet I would blow a small fortune in there.....
