Saddleback Bags make the ultimate gifts. These bags can make even the Scroogiest McScrooge giggle like a little boy on Christmas morning. Instead of getting a bunch of useless doodads from your folks and relatives this year, get them to all go in on a bag for you. Or ask for a Saddleback gift certificate to get you at least part of the way there. Hey, borrow against next year’s gifts if needs be!

Or, you can try winning a briefcase in our giveaway.

The Prize

A briefcase from the Saddleback Leather Company. This incomparable briefcase is made with 100% thick full grain boot leather and pigskin lining and is crafted with industrial marine-grade thread and rivets at all the stress points. It converts quickly into a backpack for your travels. There are no breakable parts, e.g. zippers, snaps, or buttons, and the bag comes with an iron-clad 100-year warranty. This is truly the last briefcase you’ll ever need.

The size and color of the bag is up to you.

A $568-$664 value.

How do you like them fruitcakes?
