Bag is just what I wanted

This is the second bag purchased from Waterfield, first bag is four years old and still in great condition. Only needed a new bag since I purchased anew laptop that would not fit into old bag. The quality of the new bag exceeds my expectations and I look forward to using it for a very long time. Best feature it is large enough to carry my 15" MacBook and iPad Pro.

Pleasing to the Eye. You must get it!

I am very pleased with my staad attache - ballistic with chocolate leather. It is light and does not get dirty easily. Some scratches on the leather add colours to the overall bag and I had already received a few positive comments. Thank you.

Great design which performs well

Love my new bag. A good friend of mine showed me her new SF backpack and I was really impressed by the design and craftsmanship. I was using an Abercrombie A-10 bag from the early 2000’s that is a great bag, but not really built for today’s 15” Mackbook Pro laptops. The Staad Attaché is the perfect fit, with all the room I need and still be compact. I really like the orange inside lining which is detailed immaculately and has a great look. I got the chocolate leather flap with black ballistic nylon and the look is sharp and unique against everyone’s plan old black or blue bags. The only issue I have is the the front buckle. It take two hands to secure the buckle and when your in a rush you want to secure it quickly. I agree with the other reviewer that maybe a magnetic clip would be a better fit. Other than that it a great bag that looks awesome and performs well.

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

It's not necessary. The Attaché has its own built-in compartment that will snugly hold your device.

Does the Attaché fit other devices other than the iPad Pro?

Although the built-in compartment is sized for the iPad Pro, it can also fit a 13" MacBook Pro and 15" MacBook Pro. Smaller-sized devices can also fit the 12" MacBook .

What's with the WWII ammunition buckle?

We chose this hardware because it's easy to hook/unhook. It also looks different enough to dissuade potential pick-pockets in crowded buses or trains.
