Col. Littleton No. 37 Satchel in American buffalo review

The Colonel Littleton No. 37 Satchel in American buffalo is a beautiful bag bringing Old World quality, artistry, and charm to modern times. As the title states, this eye-catching bag is made from buffalo leather instead of the more classic cowhide.

This charging bag is big enough to hold more than just your phone

Most of the charging bags we’ve featured on The Gadgeteer have been small clutches, just big enough to hold your phone and maybe a credit card or two and not much else.  They might work as a “go to lunch” bag, but you’ll probably need to put the charging case in a bigger bag that …
