Product Description

This unusual bag draws inspiration from the dry bags Saddleback President and designer Dave Munson used on various white water rafting adventures down Oregon's Deschutes River. From these aquatic origins comes a design that is a case study in simplicity, versatility, and strength. It's made using a single piece of full-grain leather, which results in a large bag with only two seams (seams are the weakest part of a bag). It can be rolled up and sealed or filled to capacity and carried openly. It can be shut with three straps or just one. You can stick long tubes and tripods out of it while it's closed. There is a built-in handle and a removable/movable one so you can carry it in different ways based on the situation. It even has high and low positions for the shoulder strap based on how full it is. Comes with a short and tall stiff insert if you want to use them. Our Waterbag is what happens when a creative guy has three years to perfect a piece of luggage. We cut the nasty looking marks out and throw them away. The cool or insignificant marks we leave. Because of natural oils, shade may vary. Logo may vary from what is shown. Covered by a 100-year warranty.

Color: Dark Coffee Brown Verified Purchase
Seriously cool product! I waited to write a review until I had the chance to fully use this awesome bag (took a 6 day trip). Opted for the water-bag versus the overnight duffel, and I'm glad I did! The water-bag seems to hold enough for a weeks worth of clothing for me. Quality, there's nothing better, truly a product that lives up to the hype. Can't tell you how many compliments I received -- not that, that matters to me, just something of enough quality and uniqueness that it draws the eye and interest to itself. I purchased the backpack at the same time and there really aren't words for the impressive design and sturdiness that Saddleback offers, you won't find anything of true comparison.

Color: Tobacco Verified Purchase
This.... THIS! This was my crown jewel purchase. I already had several SBL items before this luggage piece and I wanted to make sure I picked the right color (Tobacco) after trying out other SBL items. Not only is it sufficiently big for a short-medium length trip, but you can carry it so many different ways (backpack mode, tote mode, handle mode, and over the shoulder). I can fit so much in here. I recently took a trip to Disneyland and I was able to fit 2 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of shorts, sandals, 4 t-shirts, 5 pairs of socks & boxers and my SBL travel case. I still had more room. When at the airport, I also used it in backpack mode and it was so well balanced, I almost forgot how much this thing weighed. This of course is the only con - weight. If you plan on carrying this over your shoulder, please don't expect your shoulder and neck to not be sore. For longer treks and trips where you are physically hauling this bag, I would strongly consider using it in backpack mode.

Was it worth the money? YES! Considering that this is going to be a bag for life and it will get better as it gets more use, and it has a 100 year warranty, the money question will quickly leave your guilty pleasure reservoir once you've had it for a month or so. Then the pain of the purchase should dissipate!

Color: Dark Coffee Brown Verified Purchase
Amazing bag and all the hype about the quality is no understatement. Worth the price!

I think Tobacco is my favorite color, followed by Dark Coffee Brown. The "color chart" on the FAQ section of the SBL website is pretty darn accurate.
