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!
Exactly how expected bag to look, feel and perform based on video and description.
Outback Duo Laptop Brief
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!
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.
