"At once stylish and sturdy, this bag transitions seamlessly between the office and more casual settings."

"Vitesse is a French noun meaning speed. The word suggests a European zest combined with rapid utility. It’s the perfect name for the Waterfield Designs Vitesse Messenger Bag. The bag is simple, lightweight, and has a certain flair in its design."
"If you’re looking for something that can keep your stuff together no matter what you need contained, this is one of the better buys out there. And you’ll look great doing it."
This is an amazing bag! I absolutely love it! There is plenty of room for me to carry around all of my things. I would highly recommend this bag!
My Vitesse is the best work bag I've ever had - I enjoy carrying it with me to the office, riding my bike with it and even traveling on a plane!
The strap tends to dangle up and twist by itself sometimes which requires a bit of time to untangle it. Perhaps an improved strap could be used instead? Otherwise it is a fantastic bag, very high quality

Is this waterproof?
It’s not waterproof, but it is water-resistant.
What is the Vitesse Collection?
Although vitesse is French for "speed", the only speedy thing about the Vitesse Collection is how fast it can help you transition from casual to work and vice versa. The straightforward, un-complicated designs use lightweight canvas and full-grain leather to create contemporary pieces from old favorites. This collection is committed to the essentials, and have an easy, relaxed style: few pockets, no lining, no extra hardware. Fold and take them along as second travel bags, or use as your primary carry-all.
