What you need to know
- There's a $400 Mac Pro leather saddle.
- It's $400.
- And it's a leather saddle. For your Mac Pro.
Just when you thought Apple's $400 Mac Pro wheels were as mental as things could get, someone went out and made a Mac Pro Gear Saddle. And yes, that's exactly as ludicrous as it sounds.
Backing up a bit, here's what a Mac Pro Gear Saddle is. Beyond $400-worth of madness.
- Crafted from premium, full-grain saddle leather.
- Includes a removable Gear Pouch (Medium) for additional storage.
- Drapes over the steel and aluminum frame of Apple's Mac Pro without blocking the handle or On/Off switch.
- The two thick leather straps that go over the top of the Mac pro are lined with rubber grips to steady the saddle.
- Both sides have seven pockets in four different sizes to hold various-sized tech gear.
- Bottom pocket holds the Medium Gear Pouch and other horizontal gear.
- Snap-on closure secures the bottom side pocket.
So yes, this is a saddle for your Mac Pro and you put stuff in it. Why? I'm not really sure, but I must admit it looks pretty good. In an appreciation of cool leather products kind of way. But definitely not in any kind of way that involves handing over $400 for one.

At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Guess there is that segment of society that buys a Mac Pro because they have money to burn. Most likely do it because they need the capability it provides. Those folks have all the things the saddle bags hold out, because they are using them, to get s**t done. Maybe this does make it more convenient to carry all your stuff to the Hollywood Hills LAN party.
