    A Review of the Outback Solo Messenger Bag by WaterField Designs

    Tools & Toys - August 1, 2017

    "For the first time, I’m genuinely excited about the bag I’m carrying. I have what I need, and a minimal messenger silhouette to match. If the concept of a minimal daily carry — that gives constant little reminders of how special it is — appeals to you, I strongly recommend the Outback Solo by WaterField."

    My new canvas messinger bag and suede sleeve are perfect. Stylish, lightweight, and practical, just like the new 15 in MacBook Pro.

    Worth it

    Nice bag, but expected it was be more substantial for the money.

    Overall the bag seems well made, the leather top is very nice. However, the ballistic nylon seems a bit thin. For the $$, I expected the fabric to be tauter like a very nice laptop bag (I have a nice laptop bag, and paid a bit less for it than this iPad bag). Also, the compartment where the iPad goes is very stiff. It's like the neoprene of the bag and rubber of the Keyboard folio stick to each other. So while it's easier to remove the device (thanks to the loop at the bottom) inserting is another story. One would expect it to slide right in.
    In spite of the these experiences, I plan to keep the bag as the concept is good and it should get the job done. But I'm not as impressed as I hoped.

    Is the bag water resistant?

    The waxed canvas and leather are both water resistant and should keep the device inside dry should you find yourself without an umbrella in the rain. However, we do not recommend taking your Outback Solo for a swim.

    Does the flap open up on its own?

    The magnetic closure keeps the flap securely fastened on the outer front of your bag.

    What else can I carry in the Solo?

    The Solo was designed to transport just the essentials— the device, power, a phone and wallet. However, people have put a small tablet in one of the pockets. In a pinch, this can also be used as a handsome general purpose carry-all if the device is taken out.
