I get emotional about my briefcase (shown far left in saddle brown on my office chair). I like that it carries my laptop, iPad, phone, three charging cords, point & shoot camera, passport, business cards, reading glasses, three pens, car keys and still has room for work papers, Wall Street Journal, bottle of Bayer Aspirin, earbuds and other miscellaneous "stuff". I like that when I'm waiting to board a plane people ask me where I got that case. I like that it fits under the seat in front of me, I like that it only opens when I want it to, but I don't have to take it off my shoulder to get into it. I like that I can lock it with a simple lock while I nap at the airport or go to lunch. I like the no-slip shoulder strap, that wonderful handle, and the way it clips to my roller-bag when walking through the airport. I like tossing it in my car every morning on the way to work, it makes me smile. I've waited all my life for this case, and I'd like to make one for you. Each one is hand-made in our Colorado shop and custom molded "semi-hard shell" using our our soft 8-ounce saddle leather with glove-soft leather lining throughout. It will outlast you.

btw - I had my guys slightly curl the edges of the upper flap on my case for me (above left), because I like the way it looks. Most people agreed, so we now do this to all of them unless you request otherwise.

Sunglass CaseI seem to just destroy nice eyewear. There never seems to be a good place to put them "out of harm's way", so we designed this optional extra large clip-on matching color eyeglass case, capable of carrying extra-large sunglasses, like the ones I fish with. Easy to attach or detach to both the upper and lower hardware on the side gusset of your Pullman (so it won't flop around), also includes a beltloop or you can use a simple carabiner to clip it to other stuff you own. Fabulous pull-the-knob fastener keeps your shades secure. Inside dimensions 6.5" tall x 3" x 2.5", includes detachable beltloop. Select color below when ordering...
Beverage CaddyThis optional beverage caddy will carry your thermos or water container (pick one below) clipped to your Pullman and you can also wear it on your belt and go for a hike. It clips to your Pullman using the Pullman's built-in gusset hardware (attaches both top and bottom so it won't flop around) and includes a detachable belt loop. For a container select either the Klean Kanteen 27 oz Stainless Steel water bottle with Bamboo topped lid (shown) or the Thermos(tm) Stainless 16 oz. Thermos bottle (left in inset photo below) or the Thermos(tm) Stainless 16 oz. insulated container with flip-up lid dispenser (right in inset photo below). All are TSA allowed on flights as long as they're empty going through security. The Caddy is also sized to fit your typical plastic Dasani(tm), Aquafina(tm) or other 16 oz water bottles from the store. Supports containers up to 3" in diameter. Select your color and container below...
Additional Beverage Caddy ContainersOur Beverage Caddy includes one of these when ordered but you may wish to order other styles in addition depending on your day's activities (Hot, Cold, Water, Coffee, Etc.) All top names, we use them and rely on them daily. (Beverage Caddy not included) All are TSA allowed for flights as long as they are empty going through security.
BACKPACK STRAPSThis is a great alternative way to carry your Pullman or Laptop Case (your case comes with a shoulder strap already). These detachable lightweight backpack straps hook to the same d-rings as the handle and the bottom d-rings on the case and allow you to carry your case like a backpack. VERY COMFORTABLE! Criss-cross design causes the case to ride comfortably and "square" on your back even when only one of the two straps is in use. Made with matching leather and includes length-adjustment buckles as well as non-slip lining on under-side of the straps (specify color when ordering).
PadlockYour Pullman Case or Laptop Case can easily be locked with this padlock, simply by locking the two parts of the clasp together. The case can also be locked with other locks, including TSA approved locks commonly found in travel stores. Now you can take that nap at the airport.
Comes in either brass (gold) finish or nickel. Attach it to a d-ring on the side of the case when it's not busy doing its job.
ORDER CONFIRMATION IN GIFT BOXIf this Pullman is a gift and the event is before the case will be ready, just ask and we'll mail our small gift box with a bow on top with a photo of the case and order confirmation enclosed. This will at least give you something to "put under the tree." No charge. For US Domestic orders only.
CARGO POCKETSJust beneath the easy-access main cover, the front cargo pocket has a simple yet elegant flap closure for rapid access to frequently used items. No tedious buckles and straps, everything is quick-access so you can grab what you need without removing the case from your shoulder.
BACK SIDEThe backside of the Pullman has a passport pocket (for travel documents, phone, card wallet, etc.) and includes various d-rings and clips for attaching other Skytop System Components, like our iPad case or Laptop Case.
MAIN COMPARTMENT INTERIORThe interior of the Pullman has two snap-in removable partitions on the main compartment that allow you to configure it for each trip. Shown in one of the sections is a standard Macbook Air.
Colorado Quality, One at a TimeOne thing that'll happen pretty quick is that folks will ask you about your case. You can be proud to tell them that it's made in a small leather shop in Colorado, in a town full of wildlife nestled against Rocky Mountain National Park. Skytop is no major player in the luggage business, and we intend to keep it that way. We want it to remain the slightly hard to find special place that made your case. Please know that it will be our distinct honor to outfit you with this fine leather case.
Apple Keyboard CasePulitzer prize winners have crafted works of art with this tool. The iconic Apple keyboard now has a leather case for travel. I pair it with my phone, my iPad and dock it with my laptop wherever I travel - home or office. Stop wrapping yours in a t-shirt and get a proper case for it, good grief. If you'd like we'll engrave your name, email, phone and address on the case so posterity will know who it belonged to. You'll probably never dispose of it even after technology passes it by.
