Bolt Sling

Expensive to purchase from UK when tax and postage costs are also added but the quality of the bag is all that I expected. Love it and use it all the time.

Good solution to “lots of stuff”

I switched from the Muzetto bag to the Bolt Sling. The Muzetto carried almost everything i wanted - but I need more and the BS does that (space for a book or a slew of paper as well as my MacBook Pro; plus the two external pouches offer places for various things as well). Getting used to how to put it on but that’ll come with time … so far so good (and of course quality of materials and assembly is world class)

My favorite bag

It’s sleek, comfortable, and efficient. It’s my go to bag for work and travel and holds my 14” MacBook Pro, all my cables, power supplies, and adapters, and my Bose headphones perfectly. It’s basically a dream come true.

Gary V. (Florida, United States)
Great bag for new Macbook

Absolutely love this bag. Only suggestion would be to put a better handle on the bag for hand carry. Otherwise it is perfect.

Rick G. (California, United States)
It’s a great bag, but the sling strap isn't quite right...

No question, Waterfield makes great bags, and this one is no exception. Really well designed, thoughtful features. My only gripe is that the sling doesn’t stay firmly on my (broad) shoulders when I walk across campus.


The back compartment of the Bolt Sling has a padded pocket designed to protect laptops and tablets. The two sizes fit the following devices:


  1. Compact Size: built-in padded sleeve fits: 11" x 8"
    • 11” iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard
    • 11" iPad Air with Magic Keyboard
    • Surface Pro Go
    • Other similarly-sized devices
  2.  Full Size: built-in padded sleeve fits: 13.5" x 9.5"
    • 14" MacBook Pro M1
    • 13" MacBook Pro
    • 13" MacBook Air
    • 12.9" iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard
    • 11" iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard
    • 11" iPad Air with Magic Keyboard
    • Surface Pro X, Pro 8 with Type Cover
    • Surface Book 3 (13.5")
    • Surface Laptop 4 & 3 (13.5")
    • Other similarly-sized devices


We designed an entirely new strap system to make the Bolt Sling as comfortable and convenient as possible. We combined the comfort of a cushioned shoulder pad with an articulating strap so the pad rests comfortably on your shoulders as you move about. 


You can easily modify the length of the strap with the quick-release cam buckle, and adjust which shoulder to carry the Sling by simply attaching to the right or left side of the bag. 



Most slings with one main compartment will have contents eventually end up at the bottom of the bag. The Bolt Sling solves this by having three distinct, easy-to-access pockets that organize the contents so you can easily find what you're looking for. 


The two front pockets are pleated and are deep enough to hold bulky items like a headphone, bottle of water, or eyeglasses without showing any bulge. The vertical, slimmer back pocket lets you slip your laptop or tablet vertically into a padded compartment, with room for magazines and other documents.   


Together, the three pockets combine to create  a seamless, professional look for the Bolt Sling. 



Haul your entire Nintendo Switch set-up to LAN parties road trip using the multiple pockets of the Bolt Sling to store your Switch and accessories. Stash your dock, controller, cables, and other accessories in the front pockets and use the rear, vertical compartment for your console or laptop. 


With the professional look of the Bolt Sling, no one will guess what you actually have stored in there.



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Bolt Sling, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full-grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your sling.


Keep your waxed canvas Bolt Sling looking new by applying a bit of wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax for canvas will work, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 


The video shows the waxed canvas Vitesse Musette to illustrate how to apply the wax.
