New Outback Duo

My gear over the last couple years has gotten much smaller and lighter with the additional problem of carrying around two laptops. As always, my go to choice is SFBags. The Outback Duo fits the need perfectly. It holds both an M1 Macbook Air and a MS 13” Surface Notebook 2 with their chargers with some extra room for odds and ends. Add the piggyback, you won’t be disappointed. Personally, I went with the grizzly leather and black ballistic because I wanted to see the patina over time. Hopefully the Duo’s leather will match my well worn SFBags wallet in time.

Reality was as good as the anticipation!

I’ve been looking at the Duo for a long time, it is a premium price, and lets face it no one is commuting! Finally invested in it, and it has not let me down.
It is a lovely thing to handle, very tactile. Very well constructed, top notch, in all aspects, you really get the sense it will last forever.
I bought the compact for a 13” MacBook and iPadPro 12.9, it is spot on for this, really nice fit, and reflected in external dimensions.
The space between the two devices is bigger than shown, in that it is more useful, easily will fit a bunch of stuff in there, power supplies etc
Would highly recommend

Great bag for my MBP 13" M1 Mac

This bag is just what I wanted. A great looking, slim (don't want to carry the house with me), and a few pockets for pencils and a notebook along with a space for an iPad (that I won't use but appreciate). If you want a minimalistic, stylish, bag/brief to commute or travel, this is the bag you want.

Fab bag and even better customer experience.

The bag is for my husband who has “upgraded” from a slimmer version and he loves it. Form and function are both spot on for him. The communication and service and speed of response is just brilliant. Highly recommend!

Just Right

I have had a dozen or so laptop bags over the years. The Duo gets it right. It is just the right size so i dont carry more stuff than i need and it is a premium product that I expect to have for 10 years. It is stylish without being over the top. Now I have to clear out the junk bags i've purchased from Amazon and Bestbuy.

BECAUSE CARRYING A LAPTOP + TABLET IS NORMAL

As its name implies, the Outback Duo is specifically designed to carry two devices. The Duo remains ultra lightweight and compact even when full. The main compartment makes efficient use of space, the pleated front pocket expands and contracts to minimize bulge, and the Supreme Suspension Strap makes for a light, comfortable carry. 

 

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER AND WAXED CANVAS

 

If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Outback Duo, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.

 

Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
