A beautiful, and incredibly versatile little bag. I’m exceptionally happy with it.
Not my first Dash. I love them. Light, protective, great for carrying accessories too
Been looking for a professional, minimalist, backpack as I commute into SF. I have had a Tumi Alpha Bravo Slim bag for a few years now and loved it but wanted a backpack style for more ease of use but did not want to look like I went hiking with it since I meet with executives. After much research, I found this to be what I described. I have received numerous compliments and even had a person take a picture of it while on a plane.
As always, build quality is amazing. The waxed canvas feels great and the chocolate leather can only get better as it ages. The duffel is spacious and not too heavy.
That said, it is clear that this bag needs an update, a refresh. The bottom should be leather, to protect it better, and the strap should be redesigned (I'm thinking a much longer shoulder pad, at minimum). I'd like to see an integrated shoe/dirty clothes pocket on one hand and maybe the sweet magnet pockets on both sides, with the interior lined. Lastly this bag was originally conceived to max out airline carry-on specs - those have tightened in the last few years. I would maybe cut the dimensions down, ever-so-slightly, to match the most common requirements.
I bought this to protect my new MacBook Air from scratches, while stored in my Full Sized Sutter Tech Sling from Waterfield. The fit is snug, and it is not too big, or bulky, to stop it from fitting in the pouch in the other bag.
I generally carry two iPads, and the MacBook Air in the Sutter Tech Sling.
I love it. I was using a metal money clip to hold my money and my cards...This is much nicer, plus I upgraded for the RFID lining.
Originally, I was just going to get a basic strap on Amazon, but I’m so glad that I didn’t!
The build quality of these things is incredible!
They are super durable, and very easy to wear.
The metal components are also Fantastic!
I can’t say enough good things about this strap...and after having been through so many straps that break, are uncomfortable, or inexplicably stain my shirt, I think I’m justified in doing so.
Stratto Bifold Wallet
Best backpack I have ever owned. Everything about it is perfect.
I’ve had one of the mac laptop sleeves for the last 6 years. I’ve had 4 computers over that time and it’s like new. The sleeve is fantastic and I just bought a second on for my wife.
I needed something portable and professional to transport my laptop to meetings rather than lugging a big backpack. I stumbled upon Waterfield’s website and decided to go for it. It has exceeded my expectations. The quality is really high and the size is perfect.
I have bought before and always great quality and great fit
First of all, I have to say, this is the most sturdily built backpack I have owned. Probably has got to do with Waterfield bags’ small batches of production ensuring good quality on all its product lines. I love the gold lining inside and it’s probably the only brand I know that has this as a standard. I love the spacious cavity on the front zipper that allows me to throw in anything that is not my laptop or Switch. And the leather on the front panel not only looks good, but makes for an easy quick-access packet.
I’ll be picking up a Staad Attaché next to complement this backpack, so watch out for that review!
From day one I have absolutely fallen in love with this case, it feels so nice and keeps my switch well protected in my backpack, my friends all love it as well and 2 of them already got the link from me!!! 100% satisfied!
The shipping was nice and fast. The quality of the bag is really nice. I haven't had a chance to travel with it yet. The case does fit everything I need and I look forward to traveling with it.
This sleeve is nice and thin with just enough cushioning on the bottom edge, so that you can put it in your back and not worry about your computer slamming on the ground. Perfect if you have a sleeve/compartment in yo it bag for a laptop!
My MacBook fits perfectly into the sleeve, I love that they have a vertical orientation so you can charge while it’s in the sleeve
Love this thing. I’m a casual gamer who works in an office environment and don’t care for playing games on a smart phone. I have the city slicker sized for the Skull & Co case, but I have my switch in the Smatree case which is much smaller so it definitely fits. With this case I can actually fit two more joycons along with the their lanyards, charging cable, EarPods, generic charging block, and a power bank in the back. I keep it on my desk and it hides so well in plain sight that my employees think it’s just a fancy stationary bag. If you’re into gaming, can afford to dish out a good amount of cash, and don’t want to be the grown adult with some Pokémon designed case, then you’d totally dig it.
The Laptop Sleeve Case for my new Dell XPS 15 is my first Waterfield Designs purchase, but based on this one, it will not be my last! This is a perfectly fitting, very elegant case, and at a great price. The fact that is made in the USA is an added plus. Shipping was lightning fast, and communications with the company were answered promptly. Thanks! I'll be a repeat customer, that is for sure!
FYI. As yet I have only used the Air Duffel on road trips where it has worked quite well. There is a place for all my electronics: laptop, iPad, camera, lenses, charging cables and other accessories. And with all the compartments and pockets, I can quickly locate anything I need. I look forward to using it for its intended purpose - air travel.
Love it! Great color that will only get better with time. And it makes things very organized in my bag, just what I wanted. The size is spot-on for regular glasses but have you thought about the larger sport/outdoor activity sized sunglasses? I've a pair of Oakley Half Jackets would love to have something for them...… ;)
This is a well designed and well made bag, probably the best you can get if it fits your gear and needs. I got it in 15” black nylon and leather. They seem to have added a key lanyard to the inside, which is a nice unadvertised feature. As others have pointed out, the front clip is a little fussy to open and close—I’d prefer a magnet either instead or in addition. I’ve also mistaken the back luggage band for a pocket and dropped objects right through it—something to distinguish it from the newspaper pocket would be nice. I also worry a little about the shoestring zipper pulls eventually getting unlooped and lost, I’d rather have a regular metal pull.
If they ever decided to make this bag entirely out of leather like a briefcase, it would be a super stylish option.
Overall great—if WaterField didn’t seem to be such an attentive company, I wouldn’t even include my picky comments.
This is a GREAT sleeve… the leather is beautiful with amazing lining… a great sleeve… the craftsmanship makes this good value...
I’ve had a Tumi backpack and have been searching for a while for a replacement bag, that looks stylish holds enough for the travels into the office but also has a smaller profile. This ticks all those boxes. Customer service was amazing as well.
Executive Leather Messenger
Super comfortable straps, easy to pack and very functional to make it through security with two laptops and an iPad.
Another WaterField home run!!
After I received my Sling I sorted through all the ”stuff” I pack into my backpack getting down to only what I need. This has been my goal for a long time. My wife and I made a 3 day trip I was able to easily pack my iPadPro 11”, iPad 10.2”, a power battery plus my Gear Pouch I had loaded with what I need to charge all our devices while out of town. I had room to spare. The Sling was very comfortable to wear and easy to use. I picked the right Sling for my needs with room to spare.
Wonder design. It is a bit pricey but you won’t find anything quite like it. Very satisfied.
The pouch is the perfect size and layout for carrying my EDC essentials. Exceptional materials and workmanship. The Waterfield Team provided World Class Service!
This was a Valentine's gift for my husband, and he loves it! Looks great, good construction, and he's very pleased! Fits easily into his front pants pocket, he does not like sitting on a wallet! Thank you for great quality and choices! I will shop with you again!
6, credit cards 6, identification & business cards w/ plenty of room for misc.dollars
I have to remind myself it is in my pant pocket
Leather was stiff at first, but like any good leather it has relaxed into a perfect fit for my Samsung 10+. Great case
