I was looking hard for a small bag to carry an 11" iPad Pro (w/ the Smart Folio keyboard), wallet, iPhone, spare battery, and glasses for a svelte writing kit. I have always preferred a vertical orientation carry because I find it more comfortable than traditional messenger bags. I ordered the small size in waxed canvas and, upon unboxing, fell instantly in love. Despite weird looks from my wife, I couldn't stop touching it; it was better than I had hoped! The materials are downright intoxicating. I love the simple organization that encourages me to keep my carry down to the essentials, though it will gladly swallow more than I need. I also ordered with it a small Gear Pouch in which to carry a backup battery, cords, and Airpods Pro. I simply couldn't be more pleased.
Great bag for around town. Carries my iPad, phone, wallet and more. If I could customize this bag I would like to have a removable shoulder strap and would like there to be a half inch of additional depth. Keep up the great work!
Medium Bolt Crossbody ordered.
Verdict: A perfect bag for carrying minimal tech to/from the coffee shop/work. The inclusion of a sizeable front pocket was what led me to select it over the muzetto bags WaterField offers
Uses: I use it daily to transport my iPad Pro along with a few cables, iPhone, and documents. Fulfills that purpose wonderfully.
Feedback: The medium is a bit snug carrying my MacBook Pro with Apple’s leather sleeve - it fits, but it’s tight.
FTF (For the Future): I would love a small, compact crossbody design that somehow incorporated space for a pair of over-ear headphones, but without the rectangular size of a briefcase or messenger bag.
Waterfield makes great bags - I have a few of them now and over the years they hold up well. I was preparing for a trip and needed a messenger type bag to take with me. Waterfield shipped the bag to me the same day I ordered it (thanks!). I take lots of photos on my trips and use my iPad Pro to store and edit my pictures. I also like to have my iPad with me around town for those dead times -- for photo or video editing or surfing the web. I guess it is kinda like a man purse for me.
I noticed a few people comment that there is no should pad included. I have a Billingham SP40 shoulder pad and it works well when I need more cushion / for heavier loads (pic included).
I will probably order the small bag too - the medium is the largest version of this bag that I would want to carry around all day.
Great bag! amazing quality! Needed in a hurry, Chris was great and got the bag out immediately. Highly recommend Waterfield Bags.
