This is my second purchase of an ipad folio. The original folios are a bit too small for the newer, larger ipad pro. I just received two Executive Folio for Laptops and Tablets - 13" and was pleasantly surprised by the craftsmanship and colour choice (red and brown). The delivery of the product was exceptional fast and the customer service excellent as usual. Thank you for another great product.
Very functional and used frequently ,Excellentworkmanship.
I love the folio. Working on a large hospital, I needed something to carry my laptop and papers around that wasn’t a bag. This fit there bill perfectly!! Not too flashy but still professional and lightweight. Thank you Waterfield for making the most functionally designed tech and business cases.
Everything I was looking for, a quality sleeve with room for a bit more. Quality of construction is superb. It is a bit oversized for my Yoga 730, 13”, but I like it. I don’t use Letter-sized notepads, so I might hack the notepad pocket to better fit a Rhodia webbook (A5 sized leatherbound notebook). I like that the holders are already there for my fountain pens.
I wanted to love it. I liked the build quality, it is a quality folio and it looks good for business purposes. It has plenty of storage. I use it as a folio however, and having the pad of paper on the left side, just doesn’t work for me because I’m right handed. Every time that I open the folio, that pad of paper goes whoosh and flops all over the place. I think that if the sides were reversed, then I would have kept it.
What is the purpose of the Executive Folio?
In our survey to develop the Pro Executive Backpack, people indicated they used their backpack throughout the day. However, many requested that the backpack be lightweight. Because they spent most of their time at meetings, we figured we can keep things light by having a removable Executive Folio that would contain all the essentials for a short meeting. Leave the backpack in your office, and take the Executive Folio with you to the conference room. You can also buy the Pro Executive Backpack to go with the Executive Folio.
How do you suggest I clean the leather?
Actually, we suggest not doing anything. Part of the beauty of highly distressed leather develops as it gets used over time— with rain or getting bumped around. Leather conditioners will darken and alter the leather, maybe not something you desire. If at some point you want to condition the leather - we suggesting using Mink Oil. This will darken a bit at first - but will keep the leather very nice. You can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with a hair dryer and your hand. Any leather discoloration or marks are straight from the actual hide itself; it's part of the character of the leather. That’s how you know it’s the real thing. Each hide has it own look; it's unique just like you. With naturally tanned leather, there's always going to be a bit of character on it that's hard to control. It's one of the reasons we like it so much, you'll always be getting a one-of-a-kind bag.
How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?
The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.
