Sutter Slim Backpack
4.5 out of 5 stars
"It's the right size and has all the feartures I need without any of the extras I don't. The bag is already wearing nicely, and because it's a WaterField, I know it will last for years."Gear Diary, July 2022
I’ve had the Sutter Slim for over three years now, and I keep going back to it as my go-to bag. Occasionally I’ve tried to break up with it and use bags that are roomier or look a bit different, but those bags always find their way to the back of my closet.
But not the Sutter Slim. Its main compartment is roomy enough to hold the 16-inch MacBook Pro, iPad, notebooks, and headphones I take to work every day, and even with all that, it still has a tidy bit of room left over. Sometimes, yes, I wind up bringing home stuff that won’t fit in the bag, but I keep a canvas Trader Joe’s bag neatly wrapped up in the bottom of the bag for that very purpose. I also find the secondary compartments perfect for my needs: the top one gives me easy access to commonly used items and the bottom one is a perfect spot for battery packs, sunglasses cases, or portable umbrellas.
This is all great for convenience, but the real reason why I keep coming back to the Sutter Slim is that it feels so comfortable on my back regardless of how much stuff I cram in it. This is important as I live in SF and don’t have a car—so I almost always have a bag on me. The wear is never overbearing, and I like how the slim profile allows me to navigate crowded downtown spots with the comfort that a bigger bag isn’t being a nuisance.
It’s tough, too, and generally looks like it did on the day I got it. I have, however, replaced two of the zipper pulls with sturdier ones as the metal ends of the native ones fell off long ago. (Admittedly, this is partly because I usually handle them a little roughly.) The fabric in the top pocket is also starting to come unstitched, but this doesn’t affect the use of it. Indeed, I’ve thought about dropping my AirTag in there as I know it will be well-hidden. (There’s an idea: hidden AirTag pockets.)
I consider these minor issues. This is just the wear and tear of three years of almost constant use. In fact, I’m a little terrified of Waterfield discontinuing it, and I’ve considered buying an extra one just in case. I really do love it that much.
I love this bag. Modern bag, with beautiful leather that holds everything you need with the steam deck. It’s very functional as well, able to hold the charger and an extra USB C cable in the back zipper pocket along with any extra memory cards. I highly recommend the shoulder strap as well as the steam deck isn’t small…. I’m very satisfied with this purchase.
We bought this bag as a birthday gift for our son. Your bag is genius, keeping that cycling gear organized. You make us look like gift-giving geniuses! We also gave him a Jersey Pocket Tool Case, again kudos to the best gift-giving parents, thanks to Waterfield.
This was my first sling (apart from the one the doctor put on when I broke my arm!) Very useful bag, which holds all my every day carry items neatly. Always accessible and super stylish. I love waxed canvas and leather.
Three nights each week, I travel from my day job at the high school to teach at a community college. Traveling with a MacBook Air and iPad Pro, along with all of the cables needed to hook everything into the classroom technology was becoming a bother. The air caddy makes everything easier. This one bag keeps the iPad and accessories into one kit. Power, HDMI, USB C cables, dock, magic keyboard and pencil all have there place. This organization is appreciated when packing up after a long day. No more worries about leaving something behind. Everything that I need to to work is with me whenever I have this bag.
Like all of the Waterfield products purchased, the air caddies (I bought two, ballistic nylon and waxed canvas for my old iPad Air) are finely built. The way they look and feel is a statement of quality workmanship and careful and thoughtful design.
This time I opted for The Bolt Duffel in waxed canvas with chocolate leather. Sharp aesthetics, intelligent design, exceptional quality... everywhere I go it turns heads. As a veteran user of Waterfields products, I've grown accustomed to compliments and inquiries on my gear bags from my fellow travelers, and I'm pleased to recommend to them a company like Waterfield Designs.
The magnetic sleeve is so nice and perfect. The MacBook Air fits easily in and is easy to remove. I love that there is no zipper to possibly scratch the MacBook and all the hassles that are associated with zippers. Compact, feels great and looks great. Definitely a must have for my laptop.
My past Wallet has 12 years old and is time to change (same model). I love the desing for me there is no other option for a wallet. Everything is great, in this wallet, materials and the space it has.
The sleeve fits perfectly for my MacBook Air M2 and I especially like the snug magnetic closure. My iPhone and the the AirPods fit easily in the additional side pocket (the charger would fit too, but my Air lasts the whole day without recharge).
Been looking for a front-worn sling for the longest time. This one ticks all the right boxes for me. Size is just right for essentials (including a small folding umbrella), the fit and way to drapes on your front is comfortable. Also, have always loved the styles of Waterfield bags.
This is my third Waterfield wallet, which I've wanted for years but the other two just never wore out. I don't think they ever will! I first bought a ballistic classic Finn maybe 15 years ago and after many years I got tired of the color so gave it to my spouse who still uses it to store small batteries. Then I used a "mini" Finn in my minimalist period of carrying as little as possible. I went bigger this time and opted for the International, to carry more cards, more cash, a small microfiber glasses cleaner, and a tiny Moleskin Volant notebook, and hopefully some international currency at some point in future travels. It can still fit in my front pants pocket. It's such a simple, yet profound wallet design. I love having the zipper to keep everything from falling out.
The other interesting thing: I accidentally ordered two leather wallets but then I decided to keep the second one. I decided to paint a design on one of them with some acrylic paint pens, then used a urethane sealant for leather. We'll see how it holds up. The Finn is a cool backdrop for artistic expression. I showed it to a couple of artists who liked how the paint pens took to the leather. I wonder if others more skilled or informed that I have thought of decorating their Finns?
Simply its size is perfect, the quality of the materials is magnificent, I love it!
Great case, just wish they were sold in UK. Save th hustle of importing.
I've always been a fan of bags from WaterField, and over the years I've really struggled not to let myself just go on a spending spree.
But when I saw the Tuck, I really loved it. And I looked for ways to convince myself that I didn't need to buy it but, in the end, I lost and gave in...And I have no regrets! 😁
Always make great products, couldn't be happier. Isn’t the first thing I bought from them and I sure won't be the last.
"If you’re interested in their products, just go for what looks like would work for you. I have wasted so much money on buying cheap bags, never being satisfied, when I should’ve just gone with this company.This won’t be my last purchase from them either." - Casey C., Arkansas, USA
"I have purchased in excess of 10 items from this company. It’s one of those situations where I enjoy paying the bill." - James S., Florida, USA
"I have been buying from Waterfield since my first Titanium PowerBook way back in 2001. I have purchased new bags as new designs were created, not because the old bags wore out, but because they kept getting more clever and unique. I still have 6 bags I can’t part with, but I have given many to friends and relatives who are still enjoying the quality and thoughtful design." - Troy S., Illinois, USA
