I was able to use my bag on a work trip for a week immediately after receiving it. It worked wonderfully! As it happened, My work latop crashed the Friday before my trip. So I took it and my personal laptop on the trip....in the bag. Even with all the extras for the laptops it worked great. My work associate who suggested the bag showed me his bag he bought ten years ago.....it was in perfect shape....so I'm super excited my bag will last for years!
Very impressed with the personal customer service
Before my bag shipped I asked a question via email and it was responded to timely
Gorgeous, spacious, and high quality- the Cargo bag is a perfect investment for anyone looking for a good work or school bag. I’m a college student and I find that I have enough room for all of my essential items and even more. It easily holds my laptop, iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard, stylus pencil case (also from SFbags, definitely recommend if you have an Apple Pencil), calculator, and a few notebooks with room to spare. The top zipper is much more convenient than a flap and allows for easy access to your items. The front pocket allows me to conveniently store my keys and phone while I’m walking, and the pocket below the front flap is the perfect size for my AirPods Max with SFbags carrying case (highly recommend for anyone with those headphones as well). Even with all of these items in the bag, it does not feel particularly cumbersome due to the well-contoured shoulder strap, which says a lot considering I’m relatively petite. All in all, this is a bag that is durable, beautiful, and highly convenient.
Almost everything about the bag is great except for the clasp on the side that adjusts the sling. I don't really understand why every other rigid component of the bag is nice quality metal and the clasp is just cheap slightly deformed plastic, it really stands out.
I absolutely love this bag from the leather that smells fantastic and high quality to the form and function of the bag. This is my third product from Waterfield and is the best one yet. The price might be high when you compare to other bags, but then again once it was in my hands there is no comparison!!!! Hands down the best bag I have ever owned. I can’t wait to find more products to buy from Waterfield and you should too!

"Have you ever wanted to feel like an undercover agent, maybe an adventurer, or a world traveler (maybe you already are one or more of these things)? As soon as you pick up and take a good look at the WaterField Cargo, you’ll immediately feel something akin to those sorts of roles when you hold the bag or sling it over your shoulder."
