Better than Saddleback!

I recently received my first Waterfield bag (Outback Duo Laptop Bag). I’m completely satisfied.

Frankly, I never used the saddleback bags that were gifted to me years ago because there was no protective lining or way to organize my gear but your bags rock!! BTW I threw the saddleback bags into the garage with the rest of my junk to make more room for your bags!

The BEST bag

I loved it before it arrived based upon my AirPod Max one. And I like it even more now that I’ve had it for two weeks. It is the perfect bag for my new MacBook Pro 13 inch, and iPad Pro too. The lining is beautiful, the workmanship superb, and it’s very comfortable to carry. Thanks WaterField!

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.

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.
