Muzetto Overview Video with Gary
WaterField Designs - Portable Muzetto Run-through with Gary (4/2010)
Refined style. The Muzetto was designed to carry an iPad, tablet, or laptop without looking too obvious. However, the bag looks good enough to take along even if there are no devices inside. As the supple leather ages over time, the bag becomes even more irresistible to touch. Perfect for travel, it somehow manages to avoid the bulky look even when stuffed.

"The craftsmanship of the Muzetto is second to none."
"The attention to detail is very impressive to say the least. I haven't seen such good stitching on most bags. Very well done."
Carrying the Muzetto around couldn't be any more comfortable. It's the perfect portable size to match the iPad and it's very easy to handle. The shoulder pad will make carrying your stuff around a pleasure and your neck will appreciate it even more if you decide to use the shoulder strap around your neck. Would I dare say this is one of the best leather bags around? In a heartbeat, yes. WaterField never disappoints.

"The Muzetto laptop bag from Waterfield is quite possibly the most attractive notebook accessory I've used--ever."
Editor Rating: 4.5/5 Excellent
The key is to find a bag which is large enough to hold the iPad and some other gear, but small enough to take advantage of the device's small size and, ideally, be stylish in the process. We've looked at a number of different bags, but by far the nicest I've seen yet comes from one of my favorite bag companies — WaterField.
When I saw that the company was coming out with a bag perfectly sized for use the iPad (the Muzetto Portable), I knew I wanted one. Well mine arrived yesterday, and I have to tell you... I love it. It's a beautiful, yet totally functional bag that I know I'll enjoy using.
Conclusion: Perfect for Carrying an iPad
"The beauty of the Muzetto it is that you can carry your necessities without bothering with a big bulky bag, and the Muzetto will hang nicely by your side – or across your body when worn bandoleer style."
"If you want a bag that is big enough to carry the necessities when carrying your computer -- but not too big and bulky, one that can be used as a day bag on its own when you aren't carrying a laoptop, the Waterfield Muzetto is a wonderful option which should perform well and last for ages."
What I Like: Gorgeous leather bag with contrasting ballistic nylon trim; big enough to carry your laptop and all the necessities, not so big that you look like you've packed the kitchen sink; works as a fabulous day bag on its own.
The Muzetto is like a vertical, leather messenger bag. Although it is a very substantial bag it is not padded, so that you can use it without your laptop as a day- or travel-bag, for those times you don't need the extra padding. When you are carrying your laptop, you'll want to use your SleeveCase to give your laptop protection.
Yes, each Muzetto comes with a grippy shoulder pad that is about five inches long and dime thin. It allows the strap to slide through it so you can change from walking mode to access mode without taking the Muzetto off your shoulder. When you reach into your car or down to retrieve something the shoulder pad keeps the bag firmly in place.
The leather is well-oiled so sometimes a good rub will do the trick. When it needs a bit more, we recommend a leather conditioner like lexol or one similar.
Or, if you don't want to listen to us... Throw it in the washing machine with bleach on hot. Then kiss that baby goodbye.
We avoided magnets and snaps that can interfere with contents and limit ease of access. The weight of the flap holds it down to close the bag. We tested several options and chose the best for our customers.
The gold liner allows you to see the contents of your bag more easily and locate items more quickly. (With black or patterned liners, contents tend to blend in an be difficult to identify.)
