Vintage Leather Saddle Bags

August 28, 2022

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by by Kristy B First and Last purchase Unfortunately, this was my first and last Tignanello purchase. The navy blue color appears to be black, the cover of the handbag scratches incredibly easily and the lining in two of the three compartments ripped on the inside of the bag within months of carrying it. Will not be purchasing from this maker again. 01-13-17

Rated 1 out of 5 by Andie j Not Happy :( I ordered the saddle bag in Navy & Brown. The color is NOT a true navy as advertised. It looks more purple than navy. The inside slots are TOO narrow to fit my wallet and other essentials. The brown portion of the bag is not leather. This includes the strap, trim and the body of the bag. I don't feel THIS bag is worth the price. I wished that I had researched this item more thoroughly. 12-23-16

Rated 1 out of 5 by Footnote Hmmm Bragged to my style-conscious daughter that this looked like a designer bag many, many times its price. Loved it. Then, when jogging through the airport to board a plane, the strapped broke and the purse went skidding across the floor! I only had it for a few months! Had avoided Tignanello bags for a few years because of similar stories, but was eager to try this one due to the sales hype. Now it sits - sadly waiting for someone to reattach its strap. 12-19-16

Rated 5 out of 5 by ABL Beautiful Bag I have never gotten so many compliments on a handbag before, even my way more expensive handbags. My friends think I spent hundreds of dollars for this bag. The only problem I have is with my full size wallet fitting in the center compartment. It takes a little effort to put it in and out. Other than that, I can get my make-up, hand cream, pen, keys and a small umbrella in the other compartments or on top of my wallet. It is a beyond wonderful value. 10-10-16

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kbbabie Very pretty purse I actually love the look of this purse but when you try to full it or even put your hand in it, it's way too small. I'm so sad. 09-29-16

Rated 5 out of 5 by TigerInIowa More for college or teens. I will be sending this bag back. I guess I should have paid more attention to the size of this bag, but caught the tail end of the presentation. I don't know if the told the measurements or not. It is a cute bag and all, but just not large enough for me. It is well made, nice leather, and I love red/black and nicely organized too. If you can use a smaller size bag this is a great bag for you.I tend to pack the whole vanity into my bag when I leave the house. This is certainly not the bag or the manufacturers fault. If I could pack less I would keep it but am sending this back. I am sorry tignanello. I have three bags of yours and enjoy and use them often...this was just too small for me. 09-18-16

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tray S I love this bag! :) I read the reviews before purchasing this bag, but I loved the style so much that I hoped the 'small compartments' wouldn't be a problem for me. Well.turns out, I actually love them! :) Grant it, when emptying my much larger bag, I pared down a bit, but to my surprise I fit everything I needed into this bag with a little room to spare! I took my 'point and shoot' camera out of its case (to slim it down) and slipped it into one of the interior slip pockets. Put my cell phone in the neighboring slip pocket...along with a slim pad of paper, a pen, and a skinny travel perfume. I fit my 7" long wallet in the bottom of the center compartment (with my ciggy's right on top). I put a tin of Anti-Bug Bite Balm, a lighter, and a hand sanitizer in the back compartment (with room for more similar slim items, such as a make-up compact, etc.) I put tissues in the large front slip pocket, band aids, etc in the interior zipper compartment, and there's still room for a slim 5" mini tablet in an unused interior compartment! I also have just enough left-over 'upper space' for sunglasses and keys, and a protein bar type thing. :) The interior organization in a bag this size may not suit everyone, but I personally think it elevates and enhances it! (Otherwise I'd be rifling through it searching for everything I listed above! lol :) Its not a wide bag, and due to the compartments it wouldn't hold a water bottle, for example, but.I love my new saddle bag, and I have to say that it's really liberating not carrying my always 'way too heavy' larger bags full of things I rarely used! I also am enjoying the cross-body (hands freeing) style as well, but when I want to make my cross-body bags into shoulder bags, I simply add a new belt hole with a hammered nail! :) Hope my review helps someone to gage whether or not this type/style and size of bag would suit you? (I bought the Juniper, btw. Its not quite as saturated as on TV, but almost.and lovely none-the-less. :) . 09-10-16
