Awesome bag.

Purchased this back for a 13" rMBP and a 10.5" iPad Pro. It's the perfect size for them, a few cables and charger, a mouse, and some paper. Not too big, but just right.

Best everyday bag I own

This is the best everyday bag I own. It carries what I need each day and yet keeps me from taking along too much. It looks great too.

Found just the bag I was looking for

Had been looking for a new bag for quite a while. Once I found Waterfield I found just the bag I was looking for.

Excellent workhorse

I find the Staad to be all that I could hope for in terms of a flexible and light, whilst sturdily made attache case for carrying my office essentials to and from work. One suggestion I would make would be for an in house monogram option for the leather flap. The case is built to last a lifetime and bearing the owner’s initials may deter unwanted admirers, whilst adding a nice personal touch. Filson for example provide this as a free service. Just a thought for the future. Keep up the good work.

Great Bag!

My wife bought this as a christmas gift it was the perfect bag for what I was seeking--slim, holds both a macbook pro (13) and ipad/ipad pro, plenty of pockets and organization---just perfect!

Will I need to put my iPad Pro or MacBook in a sleeve?

It's not necessary. The Attaché has its own built-in compartment that will snugly hold your device.

Does the Attaché fit other devices other than the iPad Pro?

Although the built-in compartment is sized for the iPad Pro, it can also fit a 13" MacBook Air, or a 13" MacBook Pro Retina. Smaller-sized devices can also fit, like the 11" MacBook Air or 12" MacBook .

What's with the WWII ammunition buckle?

We chose this hardware because it's easy to hook/unhook. It also looks different enough to dissuade potential pick-pockets in crowded buses or trains.
