Purchased this wallet as a gift for my husband. Wallet is very nicely made and lightweight.
3rd gaming case from them. My backpack, plus all of my pouches & cases inside my backpack are from waterfield. Will never buy another tech product from anywhere else. Just got my pro executive backpack today & it is so amazing & has so much room in. Plus the pro folio that goes with the backpack that can hold both my macbook & ipad pro. All their accessories are perfect.
This is the second wallet that I have purchased and its the best wallet I’ve ever owned.
I am a long time, multiple product return customer. Waterfield always deliver on value, features, quality and shipping.
This is a beautifully-built bag with plenty of thoughtful touches that I absolutely love.
First some background: I had been using a range of Staad Attaché bags (full-size, then compact) for the past couple of years, but wanted a bit more protection and style. I ordered this new Executive Messenger bag the day it came out - it looked absolutely perfect for me. Sadly, the "Compact" version turned out to be just a teeny bit too small for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, so I upgraded to the full-size version, which does the job with great style and panache. (Waterfield couldn't have been more helpful here; they let me swap out the two bags, and even replied to a technical query I sent on a Sunday morning - in fact, I got a personal message from Gary himself - that's what I call customer service!!!)
After a week of using the bag, I'm loving it more and more. I have the Grizzly version and it looks gorgeous. The shoulder strap is really comfortable and the bag holds way more than I need to carry. It also stays upright when I put it down (something that my previous bags failed to do).
Minus Points? I still prefer the look of the "Compact" version over the full-size version (which just looks a bit too tall - there really isn't the need for the extra height in this bag, and for me it's just wasted space). I'm not a fan of the off-centred handle; I realise this makes the bag more comfortable to carry, but it just looks weird. Other issues are that the (otherwise very comfortable) shoulder strap is always getting twisted (it would be nice to have a swivel attachment, as for the Staad Attaché and other bags) - and surely, the strap should be made of leather, like the rest of the bag?
…but these are small quibbles and don't affect the overall impression, which is one of impeccable workmanship, outstanding design and passion. This is my favourite bag.
Handsome and feels excellent. Goes very well with my rough rider messenger case. LOVE them both.
The Dopp bag replaced one had for 20+ years. So good to treat my self to a Dopp bag that feels and looks great. It holds everything I need and takes up less space in my luggage.
I love that your products are made in the USA by skilled and conscientious craftspersons.
I've purchased a number of organizing cases and bags from Waterfield since I discovered them a couple months back. The interiors of my vehicles are saddle and tan leather; my gloves, jackets, etc. are all one of 50 shades of brown. this is what originally attracted me to the bags and organizers. The quality of the leather and the waxed canvas is top notch as is the construction of the pieces. My father owned a canvas and leather shop for many years and he was a true artisan; these bags are thoughtfully made in terms of intended use and meet and exceed any "tailor made" quality that I have ever seen. I use them to store the documents in all my vehicles, as personal caddy for everyday carry items, as a brief case organizers and every time I open the website I find some other useful item.. Thanks to the artisans at Waterfield for the quality work and top grade customer service, I'm a customer for life.
Back in the 80s a fanny bag was a common accessory for men. I used one to carry my official firearm because of my job as a federal agent. I liked the fact that I could carry my other personal items. Then the fad went away. I missed using the Fanny bag. Then I saw this bag by Waterfield! This bag is awesome!! It has been perfect to have all my essential items and carry it across my shoulder. The adjustable strap and waterproof zippers are extraordinary. I carry this everywhere now. No more sticking everything in all my pockets. All now is easily accessible from the bag. I recommend this bag!!!!
extremely smooth inside and protective exterior works perfect for carrying within my backpack
Had been contemplating this Piece for Several Months now when I decided to jump on the Limited Edition Color Release—Glad I did! Not only is the Piece Stylish but it is also the Professional and spacious to accommodate both Work and Personal Items. On top of everything else, WF’s Customer Service remains top notch in My Book! Thanks for being amazing Guys, keep it up!
Still early days with what promises to be my daily companion- but couldn’t be more pleased so far. Built solidly. Looks great. Even smells good. A big purchase, to be sure, but it looks like I’m going to be able to enjoy this bag for ages. Well worth it.
Excellent service and I love your products! I plan to purchase more in the future.
I love this pouch! I ordered the waxed canvas, and it looks really nice. The inner material is soft and protects the Switch. I also personalized my pouch with some pins. I can carry it in my backpack or other bag if I'm on the go and it looks mature and discrete.
Also great customer service and fast shipping!
I wanted a bag to upgrade too after my backpack finally began to give way after undergrad and a semester of grad school. I am very happy - bought the full size to accommodate my laptop, tablet, a spiral notebook, some small moleskins, and computer accessories. The clasp is nice and doesn't feel weak at all, the leather is firmly attached, and the felt of the pockets feels nice. My only, minor, minimal complaint is the shoulder strap squeaks a little, but I think that may be because I am using the bag to its maximum weight.
Also, my laptop is a Dell XPS 15, which does fit the full size compartment - if a bit snugly. Make sure to remove any USB connectors you may have or you might have to fenagle it in.
I have purchased multiple products from Waterfield and have always been impressed with the quality. Recently I purchased the Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase. I was going on a business trip and wanted to get it before I left. However the product wasn't going to ship before I left. I inquired if it was possible to expedite and by using expedited shipping explaining my desire to use on the trip. Unfortunately it would not make a difference so they suggested that I do not expedite. Then to my surprise, a couple of days later, the company sent it express shipping anyway. Thank you Waterfield!
Construction is quality, bag is comfortable, and it holds everything perfectly. No complaints at all.
This bag is perfection. It's the perfect size and has all the features I want/need. It's as if I had it custom made. The fine craftsmanship beautifully enhances the bison leather pebbling which is my favorite detail. Gary and Team knocked it out of the park with this one! Thank you!
This is hands down the best bag I have ever had and, believe me, I have owned dozens over the years. Backpacks, courier bags, slings, water bags... You name it, from almost every brand out there, in any kind of style, material and type from the most stylish to the most technical and uncompromising.
Each and every one of those invariably missed something. Some would lack weatherproofing, others would be too small or would not have enough internal pockets. Some would be too big or too bulky or lack a laptop-friendly compartment, others would be too padded thus making me sweat and so forth.
Waterfield's Sutter slim bag is light on the back and shoulders, it stays slim even when fully loaded, it contains all the pockets I need, two padded compartments for a laptop and a tablet, a well thought key holder, an external pocket which will fit anything you can think (I slide my Waterfield Tech Pouch in it), and a lot of room for books, notebooks, water bottles, extra gear etc.
In my specific case (I commute by bicycle all year long under any kind of weather), I need room for a Surface Pro laptop, paper notebook, pens, coins pouch, cards holders, documents, chargers (with cables), waterproof trousers (and jacket in spring/summer), water bottle, two pairs of glasses (three in summer) inside their respective protective pouches, plus various bits and pieces I need to have handy at all times. Waterfield's Sutter Slim Bag generously hold everything neatly in place and never gets bulky or brimming. I have been able to fit a complete double kingsize bedsheets set in it while it already contained all the above.... For what is about water tightness, I have already tested it under a few heavy downpours this season, without finding as much as a hint of humidity on the inside. I do not expect to see it wearing down anytime soon but, if and when the time comes the only replacement to this bag will be another Sutter Slim bag.
Beautiful, well designed, and sturdy. In fact, I was so impressed and excited when I received my CitySlicker I called my mom to tell her about it (she’s a flight attendant so she’s got a thing for bags). WaterField has has won me over with this one. Next time I need a bag/case/wallet I’ll be looking here first. Thank you.
This case was exactly what I was looking for. It’s super stylish, insanely durable, and fits my Switch Lite Essentials perfectly.
What’s in my bag? Switch Lite with JETech case (small molded grips), 10-game leather card, Gulikit Pro Bluetooth adapter, and usb charging cord. It’s a tight fit, but it all fits and the magnetic closure snaps together securely.
I carry my airpods a pouch with my other tech gear. Airpods would fit in this case if it was just your switch and game card.
The feel and look is incredible. You can smell the quality of the product. My Switch is very comfortable in that case and there’s enough place to stack what you need to play on the road.
Needless to say, the craftsmanship is stellar and there's so many features that make the Bolt Briefcase outshine other options on the market. The organization is simple and effective. I can see everything packed inside at a quick glance, but what I truly love is there's no fiddly velcro or zippers which allows me to quickly and quietly retrieve items. I just returned from a trip, and the briefcase (medium size) was able to stand upright. The handles are another feature that really shine because they allow you a lot of room to grab and carry. This is the perfect addition to my Pro Executive pack. Gary and the team continue to create outstanding products that simply work and look amazing.
The pictures do not do the blue justice, and for my Lenovo Yoga C940 14” that I bought it for, it is perfect. Exactly the right amount of space and pockets for my device, charger, and peripherals. It stays nice and slim at my back, with room for a tablet, sketchbook, or light jacket.
Was concerned that there would be something about the strap or sizing as I’m 6’2”, 220lb, but it is comfortable enough I almost forget I’m wearing it. Highly recommend. :)
Hands down the best EDC bag I have ever owned. Every aspect of the design has been thought out thoroughly to create this bag. Have and will be continuing to tell people about this!
I love this case almost as much as the Switch Lite itself. It is super convenient, with the magnetic closure and the ability to charge it while still in the case is super convenient. I love that there are no zippers, so you can stealthily take your Switch out in the middle of the night without waking up your partner with dangling zippers.. not that I would ever... The interior is super plush and premium feeling, and with enough space to fit my Switch Lite in a Hori Duri-flex case, USB-C cable, bluetooth dongle and the 10 cartridge leather game holder. I bought the black ballistic nylon version, which I have a bit of buyers remorse. It feels great but seems to be a lint magnet. Maybe it is my OCD, and I don't know if waxed canvas would be any better, but every time I bring it somewhere, I pick at the lint or want to take a lint roller to it. That seems to be my only gripe. Super happy with Waterfield, definitely the most premium thing to have for a video game console, but now I wouldn't settle for anything less.
I mainly bought these to match the leather on my Bolt bag. They work great, but honestly most cable organizers will do about the same thing.
The materials and construction are top-notch as expected. I can fit a laptop charger, earbuds, phone charger, mouse, and a few extra items in the large pouch comfortably.
We love this bag, it is very spacious and holds a lot of gear. Durability is a plus, and the quality is superb.
The executive leather briefcase is a great bag. The top zip is always a favorite of mine. I enjoy easy access especially when I travel to film festival, constantly in and out of the bag. The bag is light and it holds more than it seems. It especially feels light when slung diagonal over the shoulder. I'll take this and the Sutter Slim backpack when I go to Europe next semester. Two well designed bags.
This is probably the 10th product I've purchased from Waterfield. Top notch as always. Build quality and materials used are excellent and this is sure to last for the life of the product and then some!
I received my order on the second day after being shipped. Amazing quality and
protection. You will be pleased. My first Waterfield case was for my IPhone 6 a few
years ago. There have been many positive improvements made on this case. You will
not be disappointed.
I purchased this bag for an upcoming trip to Europe. I wanted a secure bag to carry travel documents and other small valuables. After reading descriptions and review at the sfbags.com site I chose this one. It is beautifully made and seems to be what I will need. I just haven’t had a chance to use it yet!
