    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."

    Solo

    Love the Solo, but it lacks a small strap (or slit in back pocket) to hold it on a wheelie bag handle!

    Btw worked fine in Apple mail!

    Great bag, know my surface will be safe

    Delivery poor but FedEx to blame not Gary and the team.
    Feels a little heavier than I thought but extra shoulder pad will banish any concerns here.

    Exceeded My Expectations!

    It looks great. But what I am most impressed with is what it can hold. 10,5 iPad Pro w/ Apple keyboard attached (and a very slim cover on the back) in the main compartment. In the side pocket I put reading glasses in the slip pocket intended for a phone then also I have 3 iPad Lightning dongles (HDMI, SD card reader Lightning to USB), my AirPods, my charger, and a Lightning cable. Oh, and the pencil in its slot of course. I thought I would take off the strap but I have found it very useful when I want to carry the whole setup “medicine bag style”. Great for keeping the hands free and I have done a couple bicycle trips to nearby coffee shops carrying the bag like this. Very pleased. Previously I was carrying most of my iPad gear in my MacBook Pro briefcase. No I can carry my full iPad kit in the same bag and one designed for it. I’m find myself leaving the MacBook Pro at home on 2-3 day camping and photography trips now that I have the iPad kite all set up.

    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.
