Extremely well made of excellent material with a beautiful design.
I have had difficulty finding products that match the slightly different dimensions of the new MacBook Pro M1 Max 16”. I already had WaterField Designs on my radar for their Vero Leather Sleeve and Pro Executive Laptop Backpack, however, after I received an email from sfbag's newsletter detailing a brand new tech folio 16 inch that would fit the dimensions of the new MacBook Pro, I immediately placed an order that included the 1.5" Supreme Suspension Strap and the Leather Mouse Pad. Shipping was included with the order and extremely fast, taking only a single day for the product to arrive. Upon first look over, it is easy to tell that it is a very well cared for and quality product. I loaded it up with the MacBook Pro, mouse, cords/everything else and it carries very nicely with the already-built-in handle but the 1.5 supreme suspension strap feels buttery smooth on my shoulder - it's amazing. The Leather Mouse Pad is made of this very nice, very fine, and smooth darker leather. Although it is a smaller mouse pad, it fits the outside sleeve of the Tech Folio 16 inch perfectly and is an easy decision for me to take with me everywhere I go. One small note about the Leather Mouse Pad is that the bottom edge (wrist edge) is slightly curved up from possibly the cutting process or the shipping process but it's nothing that letting it sit between two big books couldn't straighten out. I would absolutely recommend getting both of these optional items with the bag. The Tech Folio 16 inch is affectively a perfect bag for me since it combines all of the best properties of both a laptop backpack and a laptop sleeve in to one single place so now when I need to commute I don't have to put the MacBook Pro in to a sleeve, organize multiple tech pouches, load everything in to a backpack, and then finally leave. Now I just load up the Tech Folio 16 inch and I'm good to go. Thank you so much WaterField Designs. You have made a supporter out of me!
The Tech Folio 16-inch is perfect for what I carry. IPAD Pro 12.9 with case, Kindle, cords and chargers for iPhone, Apple watch, Kindle and IPAD. Snacks (power bars and candy mints) Power bank, 3 pens, glasses, medicine and moleskin notebook. The zippers appear to be waterproof but are still very smooth. Very well made and looks great. I believe it will last for years.
The compliments I have received blows my mind everyone comments on the looks and build quality. I always inform that is also a USA made bag. All the pockets make it so nice to pack and see exactly what I need when I need it. Thanks again for another great item.
High quality material and workmanship with a lot of extras make this the perfect computer case for my needs. I am impressed. I received it ahead of schedule and they kept me updated with the process. Would highly recommend. Great company!!!
