Love it

This bag is a great size for my MacBook Air. The brown is a good neutral color and the fabric has a nice feel. The strap is comfortable and the bag closure works easily. I expect it will Last for years. I also had the key fob added and am so glad I did. Waterfield was so helpful adding that. The interior pockets are a great size and I have room for a big water bottle, MacBook in Herschel sleeve, wallet, sunglasses, notebook and canvas pencil bag.

Perfect travel bag

Finally found my perfect travel bag that can fit my phone, tablet, wallet and a small camera without being too cramped inside or too bulky on the outside. I can wear it snug, close to my body, ideal while wandering around a strange city. Exudes a classic messenger look, with the nice brown leather highlights. A perfect buy.

Clean design with good quality material

This become my go to bag when I don’t go to work with minimal stuff that I need to carry

Extremely simple yet extremely uselful

I've been using it for 1 week now and all I can say that it is a practical messenger bag. I can fit all my day essentials easily with instant access of whatever I neem.
Thank you Gary and Waterfield team for awesome products!

Vitesse Cycling Musette

I love my new bag. Its size is perfect and it sits well on my shoulder when I'm travelling. I have the flap over design, which I really like. One comment would be to secure the top of the inner pockets to make sure nothing comes out.

Is this waterproof?

It’s not waterproof, but it is water-resistant.

What is the Vitesse Collection?

Although vitesse is French for "speed", the only speedy thing about the Vitesse Collection is how fast it can help you transition from casual to work and vice versa. The straightforward, un-complicated designs use lightweight canvas and full-grain leather to create contemporary pieces from old favorites. This collection is committed to the essentials, and have an easy, relaxed style: few pockets, no lining, no extra hardware. Fold and take them along as second travel bags, or use as your primary carry-all.

How can I keep the Cycling Musette from sliding toward my side when I’m riding?

Advice from Gary: Any messenger bag will slide around - while bent over on a bike, the center of gravity is below and in front of you - so the bag wants to go there. Larger messenger bags have the cross stability strap that helps keep the bag on your back. The smaller Musette bag is small enough that you should be able to keep it fairly well balanced on your back to keep it from sliding around. Back when I was messengering in Boston there were no Stability straps - we had to balance the larger loads on our back. You want to keep the strap short enough so that when riding - the bag fits into the small curve of your back.
