The Dover Saddlebag

The Dover Saddlebag is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bag! This is a beautiful tan bag. It seems like it is very well made and the colour in the picture is very accurate. I can't wait to see it weather and soften in the years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag The color is just as pictured. It's a roomy bag with plenty of pockets- one in the front, one one the back, and three inside. I love how the bag is so structured making it easy to find things inside and keep its shape. The strap is easily adjustable for your preference. The leather is quality. If I could make any adjustments, I wish it had one extra notch to make the bag hang a little longer and the closure was easier to close and open (but that may get easier over time if used each time). Since it is difficult to snap closed and open, I tend to leave the flap unsnapped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful but a strap is a little short and stiff Love the bag! It's a little stiff right now because I've only had it a couple weeks. I think once it gets worn in more it will be more like what I was imagining. Also I had to make the strap as large as possible to wear it as a messenger. I think it's meant to be over one shoulder but that just doesn't ever work for me. The clips in the front are a little hard to buckle still because the leather is still so stiff. But again I think it will loosen up and be easier with time. The color is perfect and the interior fabric is super cute. Love it. I also got the crisscross sightseer sandal in warm sand and it just makes me so happy when I wear them together. Love those little buckle stud things that are on both the bag and the sandals :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect bag This is the perfect tan leather shoulder bag I've been hunting for for YEARS. Perfect color, perfect leather thickness - not too stiff and not too soft where it'll become a slouchy bag (which it's not intended to be). It's going to weather beautifully and I can't wait to keep up the daily wear to see how "seasoned" it'll look in a few years. What a classic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from timeless style but also timely cool look I have always liked saddle bags but never found one that looked other than dumpy on me, never that is until this bag that really is quite lovely. I'm taking it to France this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, classic bag I've been looking for this bag for quite some time and am glad to have finally found it! The color is exactly as depicted online - warm, orange-y brown, and the striped interior is very cute :) Only reason it's a 4 -- and not a 5 -- for me is because of the heft. Do not buy this bag expecting it to be light. As long as you're prepared for that, enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great looking bag This bag is an awesome shape, size and color. My only compalint is the first day that I wore the bag, it was raining outside, and the bag looked... spotted. I freaked. I went home, let the bag dry out, and applied saddle soap and a weather protectant spray. The spots are still there- but slightly less noticeable. Hopefully over time, the rain spots will fade, and just add to the overall charcter of the bag.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointing quality The leather is very stiff and cheap feeling. The stitching wasn't even, and the closure difficult to manage. Returned.
