Did Someone Say Sitka?


Pants pockets are so last century. Bring a little Sitka into your life instead, the heirloom quality large leather satchel with one thing on his mind: Your comfort.

More Than a Bag…


The name’s Sitka. The Sitka. You may have heard of me. I’m the sidekick that local manly men never leave home without, because I’m everything he’s ever wanted in a genuine large leather satchel bag. I’ve got brains to match my beauty and brawn, and I never complain when you put a little extra weight on my shoulders.

The Sitka Leather Messenger Bag

  • Flap-over design with buckle clip closures

I’m Hot

I’ve got the perfect brown tan to complement your rugged look on life’s every adventure.

Whether you’re cracking a cold one with the boys, hanging with your girl, or trying to keep up appearances at work, you can’t go wrong with this leather messenger bag hanging off your shoulder. I’m lightweight, but I’m no lightweight.

I’m Classic

I’m in a league of my own, if I do say so myself – and I’m admittedly fussy when it comes to who I’ll hang around with. As a genuine leather briefcase, I need a rugged man who’s built from the same stuff as me.

Well, you don’t literally need to be made from luxurious top-grain buffalo leather, but grit and tenacity are enough.

I’m Built to Last

I’m not a one-night-stand kinda leather messenger bag, and I have no commitment issues. When you bring me into your life, you can expect me to hang around for the rest of it.

I age well, and I’ll look just as sleek in 10 years from now as I did on the day you brought me home. With a little extra character, of course.

I’m Roomy, Roomy.

I might look slim, but don’t let my slender form fool you. I’m more like Doctor Who’s TARDIS, or Mary Poppin’s bag. You won’t believe how much I can carry. From your 15” laptop to your smartphone, books, cards, pens, docs, wallet,…and almost everything else…I don’t judge.

I’ll carry it all without complaint in my spacious nylon-lined interior compartment and top zippered pocket. Oh, and with premium brass hardware and YKK zippers, rest assured – your stuff is safe with me.

Will my device fit?

The Device Fit on this item is: Up to 15 Inch Laptops

Not sure if your device will fit into this leather bag? Here we’ll show you how to find out step by step:

  1. Get something to measure your device with. A tape measure will work great.
  2. Find the bottom left corner of your device screen.
  3. Now, follow the screen with your eyes until you reach the top right corner of the screen.
  4. Take a tape measure and carefully measure the distance from the bottom left corner to the top right corner of the screen.
  5. Measure only the screen part. Ignore the frame or the black edge around the screen (that's called the bezel).
  6. Write down the number you measured and round down to the nearest whole number. E.g. 15.6” becomes 15” and 17.2” becomes 17”. This is your screen size in inches.
  7. Compare this number to the Device Fit number above.
  8. If the number you measured is smaller than or equal to the Device Fit number above, then it fits - great!
  9. If the number you measured is larger than the Device Fit number above, then it won’t fit comfortably. We recommend going back through our collection of bags and filtering by the Device Fit number you need.


I measured my laptop screen size and rounded the result as instructed. My screen size is 14 inches. All bags marked as Up to 15 Inch Laptops will fit my laptop.

Will this bag fit me?

We understand that finding the perfect leather bag can be a concern, especially when it comes to fitting different body shapes and sizes. Our bags are designed to accommodate adults of all sizes, and we have taken special measures to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

Our leather bags are thoughtfully crafted to fit all sizes of humans comfortably.

Most of our bags feature adjustable shoulder straps that can be extended from 25 inches to 49 inches. This wide range ensures that the bag can be easily customized to fit your unique body shape and size. Whether you're petite, tall, or somewhere in between, you can adjust the strap to find the perfect fit.

Will this bag be too heavy for me?

We understand the importance of comfort when carrying your belongings. Bags made from real leather are slightly heavier than most other materials. That’s why we've made adjusting the shoulder straps on our bags quick and easy.

The design of the adjustable straps are user-friendly and hassle-free, so you won't have to spend a lot of time trying to get the right fit. Once you find your ideal strap length, you can easily secure it in place, allowing you to effortlessly carry the bag with maximum comfort and style.

How do I look after my bag?

Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend following our full Leather Care Secrets guide to preserve your leather bag.

Use a good leather care kit once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. We recommend using this all natural leather care kit for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.

Can I get it monogrammed?

At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.

Can I get it wet?

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag does get wet, here's what you do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.

Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your leather bag completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.

Will my bag smell bad when I get it?

As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.

Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.

Can this leather bag be made with custom dimensions?

We are able to make some leather bags in our collection with custom dimensions.

If you are interested in this service, please contact us, providing the model requested and the desired dimensions. If this is currently possible, we will then provide a quote.

Please note that any custom bags ordered this way are strictly made-to-order, so will take a little longer to get to you and will be more expensive than the similar model on our site. All custom orders are final and returns cannot be accepted.

Quality sturdy bag with lots of compartments and configurations

Ive had this bag for a few weeks after receiving it as a gift, the first thing that must be said is that as soon as you lay hands on it you can tell its a good quality bag that will probably serve me for life.

The bag has an adjustable shoulder strap that can be removed, it has an insert that can be configured like a camera bag or removed entirely. The sizing in perfect to fit in most laptops, A4 documents and a camera/small drone. There are lots of pockets to keep odd bits secure too.

I would highly recommend this bag, its a great gift for any man as a multipurpose work/camera/laptop bag, the only downside is that is is on the heavy side due to its quality!

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review and including some photos! We really appreciate you taking the time Mr Weller.

Christopher Cunningham

Thanks Christopher, we're delighted to hear that!

Paul Heck
Beautifully Crafted

This bag arrived in perfection. Beautifully crafted, and will be very durable. This was an excellent choice for my son’s graduation present, and he loved it.

Amazing thanks Paul!

Great customer Service

Top-notch customer service! They really take great care of the customer. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Thanks Mark!

Fantastic Bag, Excellent Quality, Serious Function

I've only had this bag for a short while now, and I will do my best to update this review after many months of ownership.

So far I've taken this bag all over town to do work in coffee shops and the like. I'm a teacher and got this just as the school year ended; I look forward to using it as my work bag.

The bag is very spacious and has excellent organization options. Its incredibly comfortable and given it's leather build is able to form to my body as I carry it around. I have traveled coast-to-coast with it on airplanes (U.S.A) and it was the perfect bag.

My initial thought upon finally holding this bag in person was that it was too large. I was worried about that, one for appearance and two for it's function. But this bag is amazing. It holds everything I need it to, and more, without feeling too bulky. In terms of messenger bags, it is a little large. If you are a smaller person this bag may be a bit much.

Thanks Patrick for taking the time to leave such a great in-depth review! We really appreciate your words and are very glad to hear of the great use you've been getting from The Sitka.
