Love Bolt crossbody bag. it’s my new everyday bag. Great design holds a spare battery, phone, keys, and wallet compatibly. i still have and use the original Muzetto (2010) a black and a brown but the bolt my ease them into retirement.

Exactly what I was looking for

Construction is quality, bag is comfortable, and it holds everything perfectly. No complaints at all.

Great & Versatile Bag

We love this bag, it is very spacious and holds a lot of gear. Durability is a plus, and the quality is superb.

Great Bag

As usual great quality combined with thoughtful design. This is my fourth bag. They have all been wonderful.

Stellar, as usual

What can I say? This is my third order from WaterField and as usual the experience was nothing but positive. Friendly staff, quick ordering process and dispatch, and of course an absolutely gorgeous high-quality product. Stop looking elsewhere and just give them your money.
