User Reviews & Stories
Hello, I bought this backpack for my husband who travels a lot for work and does customer meetings. He loves it! it's the perfect size for what he needs. If there was one thing he could improve, it would be the laptop sleeves, when he carries both laptops they are a little snug in the space.Read more
I wanted a light backpack, nothing too bulky but still with plenty of space for the essentials, and this is IT. The structure of the Sutter Slim doesn’t allow for tons of extras, but it will fit my 14-inch MacBook Pro, iPad mini, AirPods Max, water bottle, snacks, and glasses comfortably in the main vessel, plus a host of small items in the drop pockets; and the lower front pocket is perfect for Waterfield’s 6x9 Gear Case. I love the top front pocket as a drop pocket for wallet, masks, AirPods, and other small things.
One other thing: Waterfield’s customer support is absolutely top-notch. I emailed to ask if I could order the Sutter Slim in black ballistic nylon with grizzly leather, and they came through with the information I needed to make it happen. I had no expectation that they’d go along with my madcap scheme, but they did, and it’s beautiful.Read more
Backpack is well made, fits my MacBook perfectly fine, and I like that it stands vertically without falling on the floorRead more
Really well organised pack, great pocket organisation with good straps. The only missing feature is a chest strap which is useful when carrying small but heavy loads i.e. multiple laptops & chargers.
Finish and construction is beyond reproach, simply excellent.
