Move on up. Upgrade from casual to a more formal work environment with the refined Staad Laptop BackPack. Tapered top creates a slim profile while maximizing capacity. Plushly-cushioned interior pockets for a laptop and tablet keep the main compartment organized. By request, we'll adjust the laptop pocket in the Stout size Staad to comfortably fit your 15” MacBook Pro Touch Bar. Swing the Staad to one side for quick access to keys or phone in angled, zippered side pockets. Choose from tan waxed-canvas or black ballistic and a black, chocolate or grizzly leather for a striking flap and accents. Vintage WWII-era buckle is easy to use and ultra hip. Give your back the pack it deserves.

Waterfield's Staad Slim Backpack Is Impeccably Designed And Here For The Long Haul [Review]

Waterfield's Staad Slim Backpack Is Impeccably Designed And Here For The Long Haul [Review]

Cult of Mac - October 30, 2013

"If budget isn't an issue, the Staad backpack is a solid addition to anyone's tech kit. The heavy construction and custom-designed fittings seem like artifacts from an earlier, less obsolescent era while the more modern options promise a long, productive, useful lifespan."

Waterfield Designs Staad Backpack review

iMore - November 9, 2013

"It's easy to find a laptop-carrying backpack these days; everyone and their brother makes one. It's a different story to find one that looks this good, dresses up nice, and is this well-made. Admittedly, you pay for that quality of construction and appearance. But if you're looking for a laptop backpack that looks as good in the boardroom as it does on the subway, the Staad fits the bill."

Engadget - November 1, 2013

"If you want the hands-free convenience of a backpack, but want something that will be at home in the executive suite, then pull out your wallet and buy the Waterfield Designs Staad BackPack."

My new travel pal

I’m one of those women who has switched from a tote to a backpack for travel, and I did a lot of research before picking this one. I got the stout chocolate on black, which is gorgeous. Even though I’m not a large person, the stout doesn’t overwhelm my frame and can be filled with all the stuff I need for business travel. At first I worried about the fact that it doesn’t have an external pocket for my phone or a water bottle, but after one trip I got used to the choreography. It slides on and off my back like buttah. I realize that this review sounds like 100 others, but it’s all true. I’ll be using this backpack for years.

Beautiful new bag

My husband has a number of Waterfield bags now, so when I was looking for a new laptop bag that was stylish, durable and functional I had to have a look. Interesting its a male dominated design company, as the attention to detail is appreciated by us women too. I also like the slightly industrial look and feel.
My new bag is fab, I love it.... and am hoping you can expand your range to also accomodate your female admirers too !

So worth it! So gorgeous!

I knew this bag looked good, but seeing it in person still surprised me. This is my 3rd bag from Waterfield (9th product overall), so I know that this bag will last long; My 2 Muzetto Outbacks still have no damage, although they need to be re-waxed. I'm torn between buying the Staad Slim next time or the Sutter backpack!

Will a 15" laptop fit in the Slim Staad?

The Slim size comes standard with a 13" laptop pocket but we can fit the Slim version with the larger Stout pocket to accommodate your laptop. Just leave a note in the special instructions and it will be done.

Will a water bottle fit in the Slim Staad?

It's going to be snug but it'll work.

Is the backpack waterproof?

It's water resistant not waterproof but does hold up well in the rain.
