What's not to like?

Another excellent product by SFbags. Compact. Handsome. And well designed. If I had to demonstrate my bona fides as a reviewer and point to some fault, I would say that the zippers are rather tight. But this may very well be/probably isIf I had to demonstrate my bona fides as a reviewer and point to some fault, I would say that the zippers are rather tight. But this may very well be/probably is a function of a newly purchased bag not fully broken in.

Love SF bags

As always I love the quality and design of my SF bag. My iPhone 15 Max fits great and still room for a few extra items.

The Best

I was looking for a minimalistic crossbody pouch and didn’t realize SFBags made one. This is the best. Small and compact, looks great and fits my essentials. I absolutely love the strap. Super easy to adjust and once set, it doesn’t slip. I have this with me everyday.

Great for when I need to bring more with me!

I’ve always loved the phone sleeves for traveling light, but needed to be able to take a few more things with me. This is perfect for that and very well designed. It feels really durable and I know I’m going to use the heck out of it!

Another amazing product :)

Products from Waterfield are just amazing. You should not be surprised that this product is any different. I just love my pouch. It is well built and the right size. I am glad I made this purchase.

Waterfield iPhone Pouch review: unassuming functionality

AppleInsider - January 12, 2023

“The Waterfield Essential iPhone Crossbody Pouch is for the tech-savvy minimalist — but it's also for those who want to roam the town in style.”

Rating: 4 out of 5


The Essential iPhone Pouch fits the iPhone 15, Plus, Pro, Pro Max or similar device and essentials like a wallet, keys, passport, and earbuds.


*Similarly-sized Android phones like Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy, etc. may also fit.



The various sizes of the  Essential Crossbody Collection each fit a different device you carry with you. However, if you're not carrying around a laptop or tablet, choose the size that best fits your need and stature. 


The small scale of the Compact Size is just right for daily use — at home or on trips. It's extremely lightweight and keeps your hands free for other activities. Fits and iPad Mini. 


The Medium, Tall, and Ultra sizes fit various MacBook and iPad sizes. The external pockets are all about convenience. You can access frequently-used items without having to open the bag. 





The Essentials Collection uses smart detailing, quality components, and rugged construction to achieve our “less is more” design philosophy. 


All Essential Bags are made from WaterField's custom ballistic nylon that's abrasion- and water-resistant. It withstands prolonged sun exposure so your bag will stay looking fresh and new, even years from now.  For a pop of color, we use our Forza textile which has a unique basketweave pattern. 




This line of lightweight bags with a streamlined design focus on each bag's functional essence. 


These multi-functional, everyday bags are available as a Duffel, Messenger Bag, Backpack, and a family of Crossbody bags for the MacBook, iPad, and iPhone
