"Waterfield has—once again—made a product that should give years of use. The leather Maverick messenger bag should last long enough to hand down to a new generation should you want to get a new bag or backpack later."

Fantastic!

This bag is amazing. The quality of the build is excellent. Devices fit perfectly! I purchased the smaller size for my iPad Pro 10.5 and MacBook 13”. The bag is very comfortable professional bag that can go in a board room and fits in a casual scene. This is a five star bag for sure and one I will use for a long time!

I didn’t think I’d like the sewn in straps but I really do, it’s a great fit and super comfortable even when the bag is loaded.

The only thing to consider is that the bag isn’t as generous with storage space, don’t get me wrong you can fit a lot but, i wish there was a pocket on the back to put receipts or quickly store my phone. That being said it is very minor and is my favorite Waterfield bag I’ve tried two others and this one fits me perfectly. Can’t say enough about how amazing this bag is. .

Love the bag and the admiration. Very happy with product and service.

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

It's not necessary. The Maverick has two built-in compartments that will snugly hold your devices.

How should I treat the leather?

We don't recommend doing anything. The first scratch or nick will may shock you but it's on it's way to developing a beautiful patina.

Does the Maverick come with a shoulder pad?

Yes, the Maverick comes with a removable, matching leather shoulder pad.
