“The Waterfield Vitesse will continue to be my messenger/shoulder bag of choice for the foreseeable future.”
"At once stylish and sturdy, this bag transitions seamlessly between the office and more casual settings."
Best Leather - 7/23/16
"Vitesse is a French noun meaning speed. The word suggests a European zest combined with rapid utility. It’s the perfect name for the Waterfield Designs Vitesse Messenger Bag. The bag is simple, lightweight, and has a certain flair in its design."
"If you’re looking for something that can keep your stuff together no matter what you need contained, this is one of the better buys out there. And you’ll look great doing it."
This bag is amazing! I bought it for my husband and he loves it. It’s durable and the stitch work is so well done.
The bag could be a little more sturdy. The bag can be too relaxed, but the feel and quality of the bag is great.
I haven’t had it long, but the bag's quality is outstanding, the size is good, and once I paired it with something to contain my growing collection of cables and dongles things got even better. If you're using it with a laptop (15" 2018 mbp fits fine) get yourself a sleeve, because the bag provides no protection beyond the canvas.
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.
