This is a well designed and well made bag, probably the best you can get if it fits your gear and needs. I got it in 15” black nylon and leather. They seem to have added a key lanyard to the inside, which is a nice unadvertised feature. As others have pointed out, the front clip is a little fussy to open and close—I’d prefer a magnet either instead or in addition. I’ve also mistaken the back luggage band for a pocket and dropped objects right through it—something to distinguish it from the newspaper pocket would be nice. I also worry a little about the shoestring zipper pulls eventually getting unlooped and lost, I’d rather have a regular metal pull.
If they ever decided to make this bag entirely out of leather like a briefcase, it would be a super stylish option.
Overall great—if WaterField didn’t seem to be such an attentive company, I wouldn’t even include my picky comments.
Absolutely love this bag—I’ve been looking for a well designed, attractive messenger bag for years, and this is perfect. I love the waxed canvas exterior, and the attention to detail throughout. The weight is distributed well when slung across my torso… this is just a fantastic find.
This is a real eye catcher. Love it!
This bag, like everything made here, is excellently crafted and very handsome. Most importantly it has the perfect functionality. I can walk into court with my my 13” MacBook Pro, all necessary accessories (Magic Mouse, charging cords, etc), a full sized legal pad, pen and pencil, and a small book in the main compartment. Front pocket carries my highlighters and occasionally my phone. Very happy with my purchase.
This is a stylish bag--I chose the ballistic nylon (though I prefer the waxed cotton) for durability and because... well, the ballistic was in stock. I normally don't like "flap over" style bags, but the flap on this one seems to be more practical than most, and easy to open. The size of the bag is about perfect for my laptop, tablet, umbrella, charger, etc., and it will stand up under airplane seats (a huge plus). If I could change anything, it would be adding just a few things.
First, it would be nice if the zipper pockets on the front could be split in half in some way, to make two pockets instead of one. The larger pocket is nice, but smaller things get lost easily.
Second, it would be nice to have rings to hang things from just in front of where the shoulder strap attaches. When traveling, it is nice to have a pen, flashlight, and tags hanging on the outside of the bag, and... there's no place to hang these things on this bag.
Third, it would be nice if there were somehow more pockets for small things. The two hand pockets inside are nice, but with only two pockets, a lot of stuff gets jumbled into the bag. I ended up purchasing an organizer for cables and such I can slip into the main compartment, but I'm not certain (yet) that this is the ideal solution to the organization problem.
Other than these things, this bag is near perfect in size for a laptop and essentials.

“WaterField Designs touts its Staad Attaché, as 'a beautifully-designed, unique bag for the new Apple iPad Pro and 13-inch MacBooks.' The company imagines you’ll fill it with either the tablet or laptop, but I stash both in mine — and it works great.”
