A fantastic case

When purchasing my new Surface Book Laptop I spent a considerable amount of time researching cases to transport this device as well as the other things I wanted to carry - chargers, cables, adapters, mouse, notepad/pens etc. As I was researching the options I kept returning to the Waterfield Bolt Briefcase as the best in class. The cost including freight was $440 New Zealand dollars which is very expensive, but this is no ordinary bag! The craftsmanship of this (and all Waterfield products) is incredible and the customer service is out of this world. I had questions both pre and post purchase and the customer service people were responsive and attentive and very helpful. This is my second purchase of a Waterfield product and I am a very happy customer.

I purchased the ballistic black with chocolate leather and am really happy with it.

If I had one minor irritation with the bag it is that some of the pockets (particularly the ones at the front with the magnetic fasteners) are difficult to access. With the combination of narrow pockets and my big hands, I can barely get them to the bottom of the pockets to find that elusive USB drive etc. While this is an irritation, it is offset by the compact nature of the whole bag - it is roomy yet compact and I like this.

All in all, a fantastic bag from an iconic team. These are the very best bags you can buy.

Bolt Briefcase for Surface Book

I couldn't be happier with my new bag. It was a gift for my husband, and he mentions every day how much he likes it. I think it's just a matter of time before I buy another one for myself. - Joy

What are splash-proof zippers?

Ballistic nylon and waxed canvas hold up well in rainy conditions. Splash proof zippers add additional water resistant protection for your gadgets.

Should I go with Ballistic Nylon or Waxed Canvas Bolt?

Both are extremely durable materials. Ballistic nylon is a bit more formal and will keep the same appearance years down the line. Waxed canvas takes on character with time, a "around the world" look. You can go wrong with either option.

Why use full grain leather?

Full-grain leather has a super tight grain so it resists moisture very well, and it's strong and durable. We believe in making products of the highest quality—we never skimp on materials. Full-grain leather is ideal for handles; your fingers will feel the difference. Of course, leather lines the bottom to help the Bolt Briefcase withstand various surfaces. The leather also develops a beautiful patina so it will add to the Bolt's character over time.
