Adrian M. (Michigan, United States)
Sturdy and Stylish

(I got the full size).
After using the bag almost daily roughly the last month, I can say without a doubt that this is simply the best tech storage solution of any kind that I’ve ever purchased. The vertical design is especially convenient in crowded areas and tight spaces while also being easier on the back. It’s very spacious, the quality is unreal, and it just looks damn good! Can’t go wrong with Waterfield.

Awesome Bag

As if it needs to be said...but...this is another awesome bag from Waterfield. It has plenty of pockets for organization; it is extremely well made; it looks amazing. I can't think of anything bad to say about it.

Well designed bag

The bag comfortably fits my laptop, work papers, headphones, lunch & some stationary - yet somehow it still looks sleek. I like that it has both a shoulder strap and handles - it is comfortable to carry. I purchased the full size bag and I can confirm that it easily fits the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 laptop.

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER AND WAXED CANVAS

 

If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief, 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 bag.
