Hermoso, simple, práctico.... great backpack

It’s the first time I get a backpack so beautiful and that do the job by far. I am very happy and take it with me now every time I travel out side of the city, use to take Staad model, but not that one is just for the daily work. Thanks guys for such a great job.... and greetings from Chile.

Have only used it for a short period. The real test is coming up, multiple flights across the country.
Construction superb as always. Beautiful backpack.

It's become my new favorite

Was time for me to make the switch from laptop bag to laptop backpack. Why didn't I do this earlier? The Bolt Backpack has quickly become my new favorite go to bag. MacBook Pro, iPad Pro, Nintendo Switch, gear bag, tons of odds and ends and room to spare. Pockets in the right places, and of course a fit and finish that is worthy of 5 stars. I've enjoyed every Waterfield bag I've purchased...but this one is truly the bees knees.

Great backpack!

Excellent backpack quality! Better and bigger than it looks! I have a surface book preformance and a MacBook Pro 13" (2017) both with UAG cases to fit comfortably and then all their accessories in the backpack with room to spare. The high quality hand made in SF Is worth every penny!

Great Travel Bag!

I got the Bolt on a Thursday and have been traveling the two weeks since then. The first trip was by plane. The zipper that provides direct access to my Surface Pro should be a design standard on every bag. It is just that useful. The various other pockets have me ample space for cables, keys, wallet, and even my belt. All I had to do was slip off my shoes and I was through the TSA screening in a snap. The bag is easy to carry and did not get in the way when I was pulling my roller or my wife's golf clubs.
I had to add my 13 inch tablet and power cable to the mix for the road trip. I had lots of space left over and the bag was still easy to carry. I take this bag everywhere now. It is exactly what I have been searching for.
