Here are some photos of this Marlondo Leather Thin Briefcase that has been in action for almost a year now. It’s beautiful. The back is smooth and shiney where it has rubbed against clothing and the front is rugged and smooth with use. No signs of any weakness or failures yet and I don’t suspect there will be.

Interestingly, as I was shooting these photos in the coffee shop a gentleman walked by with the oldest floppiest Saddleback Leather Classic Briefcase as well. There are two photos of that at the bottom.

These photos seem reversed. The top photos are clearly the Saddleback thin briefcase. I have one. not sure what the bottom is, but it is not Saddleback.


They are not reversed. The older Marlondo designs are very similar to SBL. They have since been changed.

The lower photo is a very old SBL Classic Briefcase, needing conditioning, with the side straps removed.


The images # 1,4,6, and 7 have been retouched. The saddle bag logo on the top of the flap strap has been (crudely) removed. Not sure why this has been titled a review of Marlondo, because it is a Saddleback bag. Was hoping to see a review of Marlondo.
BTW, I have the bag shown above and have professional photography pedigree, don’t work for Saddlebag, but feel compelled to call it like it is.
