Has anyone ever used a saddleback bag? Is it magic-usable?

I've been wanting to get one of their Travel Bags for a while. I think they look beautiful.

Yes rklew64~~~

Years ago, new circus acts knew enough to buy an OLD, BATTERED TRUNK, so that when they joined a show, they would look a bit more like an experienced trouper, and not a "first o' May!

What's a "saddle back" bag?????

Most of my cases, over the past 50 years, have come from thrift shops and yard sales!!! I've bought calesmen's catalog cases that would have cost a yard (that's a hundred bucks) for #5.00. And, they weren't junk! Many of them looked almost new!

Plan how you will perform, and buy what's appropriate.

They are high quality products. Just be careful what style you choose. I worked for years out of an old doctor's bag. I changed because small items were constantly getting lost in the bottom of this "vertical" storage system. I switched to aluminum paneled briefcases years ago and this "horizontal' system is much more efficient.

I agree MRS! When I had doves, I had a 'semi' vertical system, When the doves quit show business, I went back to a 13" x 20" x 8" ("fat" attache case). Everything is visible!

One of the best bags made, IMHO, but the interior consists of two large spaces with two small and two medium pockets attached to the interior walls. For magic, I'd have lots of loose items in the two large interior spaces and things might be difficult to retrieve quickly. The bag itself will take anything you can put it through, though, so you won't be replacing it anytime soon.

I use mine as a business briefcase (the best I've had, and I've been through many) and I don't anticipate ever replacing it unless it's lost or stolen. On top of this, the warranty is outstanding.

Which Saddleback bag do you use Shadowmoor? Mind showing a pic of your bag loaded?

I have the medium classic briefcase. I had to reduce the picture per the upload limit requirements, hopefully you can get some idea of the interior.

It's essentially two large compartments, but the front one has two small pockets at the ends and two medium pockets in the middle. The sides are bowed in because I don't have a lot in it at the moment, but you can see that there's room for expansion if I were to stuff it full of things.

There are also two small compartments on either side of the exterior and a large thin compartment on the back of the bag (good for papers and such). It's a fairly heavy bag due to its solid construction.

The company also makes a belt pouch that I use for my phone but it also works great for a deck of Bikes with a little space left over. Your belt goes through a large opening behind the back of the pouch so that it can't come flying off your belt, as has happened to me with many other phone cases. If you wear your phone in a belt case or holster, this thing will spoil you for other cases.
