"As I’ve said about other WaterField products, it’s as smartly designed as anything that comes out of Cupertino, and that makes it a perfect companion for any collection of portable Apple gear."
First I struggled justifying the purchase because of the price and delivery cost to Germany. But the delivery was unbelievable fast (2 days) and the product speaks for itself. The backpack is a bit small at first sight but is built with TARDIS like space concept. Everything I need on a daily basis fits and it remains its slim profile. The materials and craftsmanship is beyond everything I experienced before. 100% recommendation!!!
I can’t stress enough how much I love this backpack. I’ve got the slim for my 2019 MBA and 2018 12.9” iPad Pro. It is perfect in every way. Looking forward to getting some mileage on the leather to give it even more character... standard issue. As always sfbags has built me another wonderful bag. I don’t even bother shopping elsewhere at this point.
I've been wearing my Sutter Slim Backpack for quite a while now and I have gotten many compliments on it. It definitely stands out and catches people's eyes. Gary and the gang did a great job.
Loving my Sutter Slim Backpack! Traveled with it the day after it arrived and it’s everything I hoped it would be. My 13” ThinkPad fits like a glove, as does my iPad Pro 11”. It easily accommodates all of my other accessories without stuffing it to the max. And the build quality is outstanding. Additionally, loved dealing with the company. The backpack was not in stock, but they completed the order, built it and shipped it all in the same day. That’s some impressive stuff. I won’t hesitate for even a second to do business with Waterfield again!
LOVE my new backpack. The leather and workmanship are superior and for me it’s just the right size when I want be more minimal. Thank you Waterfield!!
Will items fall to the bottom when I use the front pockets?
No, items will not accumulate at the bottom. We designed two pockets, one above the other, to address this issue. You can store your electronics and your personal items separately. You can access one pocket from the top, and the other pocket from the sides.
What’s the secret to keeping the bag slim and refined even when full?
First, we made efficient use of space so items will not be bumping into each other. We balanced the placement of the interior and exterior pockets so stored items will not overlap. And, we pleated the full grain leather panel to minimize any bulge that might occur with overpacking.
Will the bag stand upright?
To help keep the bag upright, we stiffened the bottom side panels that attach to the straps.
Why is the bag lined in gold?
We chose gold because this light color makes it easier to quickly identify the contents inside your bag. The liner also adds a thin water-resistant layer of protection between the canvas or the ballistic nylon and the items you carry.
What type of leather is used for the front panel?
We use premium, full grain leather, the (most expensive) part of the hide with a really tight grain that makes it highly durable. Scratches and other surface character are signs that you’re getting the real thing — authentic, distressed leather that will develop a beautiful patina over time.
