    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."

    Superb little case - emphasis on the "little."

    I'd give it 4.5 stars if that were allowed, but *I'm* the one responsible for the 1/2 star gig. Here's why: I'm the proud owner of 4 Waterfield Design cases, and each of them is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design. They do exactly what they are designed to do, and not much more. But I forgot that lesson. I was looking for a replacement for my large traditional briefcase, something that would stylishly accommodate my iPad Pro plus a subset of the usual EDC stuff one carries - minimalist, but not crazy minimalist. And the Solo Case *almost* fits that bill. For my needs it is just a tad too small to be anything but that which it is completely advertised to be: a "sleeve plus" and not the "briefcase minus" I was looking for - as beautiful and carefully crafted as it is. This is indeed the perfect case for those who want to take their iPad Pro or Macbook, along with only the power cord and wallet, to Starbucks to work for awhile. Take off the shoulder strap, and the Solo is a lovely bag-inside-a-bag organizer for your Macbook and accessories. I've got mine loaded up with the Ipad Pro, my checkbook, glasses case, earpods, Apple pencil and an aspirin bottle. That is all. And the case does close - but barely. Gary tells the truth in the video about what fits - and I didn't listen. But I'm keeping the bag for those times when I go to Starbucks with just my iPad...and looking closely at the Staad Attache as my next attempt at a briefcase replacement!!!

    PERFECT for Writers!!

    I travel for work, and frequent coffee shops all around Phoenix on my days off! This is the PERFECT bag for both! My laptop fits beautifully inside, and the thick lining will definitely keep it safe and protected. And what better way to write about daring space treasure hunts than with a bag clearly made for Indiana Jones?? It's inspiring from start to finish, and definitely worth the money.

    Obviously have given this a lot of thought

    It's great that Waterfield products go through a stringent design process because it's obvious in the final product. I also appreciate the incredible level of quality and detail that goes into all of their products. Very highly recommended!

    Outback Solo Case iPad Pro 10.5

    Excellent product as expected from Gary! Same excellent quality and functionality as my other SF products. Thanks Gary!

    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.
