I love this bag! It straps securely to my upright suitcase to give me extra space for all of those travel items I need to get to fast—like my boarding pass, passport, etc. It makes getting through security SO much easier. And once I get where I'm going, I just take it off my suitcase, pop on the strap, and I have a roomy messenger bag to hold all of my stuff when I'm out and about. Did I mention that I love this bag?

Looks like I bought it at the "dollar store" rather than Brookstone, and much smaller than I envisioned-- so I haven't actually used it and can't report on durability, though it leaves a few question marks on that level. My trips are usually too long to trust something that looks like it won't live through the trip. It does allow me to get weight off my shoulder and onto the wheels as I go through the airport and it does fit the suitcase, though not the computer.

    Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag:

    This bag is really well designed and a perfect accessory with a hardsided clamshell suitcase or other luggage that doesn't have easy access. It is not large enough for a 15" laptop, but a tablet or netbook fits nicely. I'm often asked where I got it by other travelers and have recommended it frequently.

      Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag:

      Great option in place of lugging a large purse thru the airport and trying to balance it on your suitcase. It fits all my carry on bags and my larger ones too.I pack my smaller purse and throw this over my carry on. Just before boarding or in security pull it off. It zips up quickly and it stores under the seat easily. It has lots of room , many different sections and compartments ,even fits my I pad. Great invention. Use it every time I travel.

        • Airplane travel 

        Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag:

        I love this thing. I fly a lot and drive long distance. I keep this next to me when I drive and I have it stocked with everything I will need from maps to paper pads for making notes, pens, bottled water , snacks, magazines, newspapers.....and more.
        When I fly I stock it from my "Wheely" and keep it under the seat in front of me and never have to go to the "Wheely" during flight.
        It has lots of zippered pockets and some exposed for easy access. (This was designed by a pro traveler)
        I wanted some to give as gifts and was scared when I couldn't find a label. But I then found a small plastic tag "Brookstone".
        You will not regret owning this travel accesory

        Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag:

        This practical tote fits right over most rolling travel luggage making it very comfortable to transport. The temptation is to fill it too full, so that carrying it without its placement on wheeled luggage, very heavy. Not its fault! I carry my iPad, Kindle, cell phone, and all the charging devices in one compartment, leaving plenty of room for daytime needs in others.

          This was the best purchase I have made for all lengths of travel bar none. Two friends have bought after seeing mine. Two perfect strangers have stopped me in airport to ask how and where they could get one. Don't think twice to buy one if you come across one...you won't be sorry. (cb)

              I loved the idea of this saddle bag but it seems useless without the ability to carry a laptop. It would be an easy fit to make the compartments just 3-4" longer. Very disappointed.
