We've been committed to making products in the USA since our start in 1998. Back then, off-shore manufacturing was the trend, and many sewing shops in San Francisco were shuttered.
But, we wanted hands-on experience of the products we were making — from the idea phase to final production. We wanted to ensure things were done right, make changes on the fly, and iterate on the design as needed.
Our style of small-batch production matches the style of our products — custom-fit and well-designed for your device. You may have to wait a while for us to make it for you, but you know it will be well-made.
With WaterField American-Made gear, you get a high quality, long-lasting product. All our designs are original, incorporating features you'll find useful in your daily routine.
We use only premium, full-grain leather. It comes from the toughest part of the hide with the tightest grain. It’s the most durable type of leather because we want your bag to last! Full-grain leather looks better and better with age, so your WaterField bag will develop a beautiful patina that’s all yours.
All our backpacks include two padded compartments – one for a laptop and one for a tablet.
Two straps evenly distribute weight better than one, keeping your back and shoulders comfortable over longer distances. Backpacks are not only comfortably carry your devices and tech gear, but they are also versatile enough to use for both traveling or in professional settings.
