"The Bolt Crossbody Laptop Bag is my favorite though. It is built with the same quality I’ve come to expect from Waterfield, and it also matches the utility I’m looking for—without any excess."

"The new Bolt Crossbody bags from WaterField Designs offer some features that add a welcome layer of convenience to your day-to-day life."
MyMac Reviews rating is 8 out of 10.
Bought this a few months ago to replace an aging messenger bag, and couldn’t be happier. The medium bag fits the 10.5 IPad Pro perfectly. The zipper on top makes it very convenient to get into (no big flap), and the backside zippered compartment made for easy access to my passport and tickets when on a recent trip to Europe. Two minor quibbles. First, with the bag full, I definitely need the shoulder pad...not optional. Second, the leather pull on the zipper came undone—luckily wasn’t lost, so I’ve since tied it with a different knot. Would definitely recommend to anyone that they get this product.
The Bolt Crossbody Bag is great. The only complaint is that I wished it had less canvas and more leather. The canvas is strong but it looks like a Carhartt jacket. The magnetic snap is a great feature.
Bolt Crossbody Laptop Bag
Once in a while you stumble across a product or an experience or a something that is the very definition of "quality." The kind of quality that makes you want to talk about that something, the kinds of quality that gives you hope that people still care about "doing good work," whatever that work may be.
In this case, it's a bag and not just any bag but a bag clearly made with love, pride and passion. A bag made right here in the U.S., in San Francisco and a bag which, as mentioned in the title, heated up my marriage.
I had the Bolt loaded and ready to go, up on our catch-all kitchen counter, when my wife first spotted it.
"That your new computer bag? That's a nice bag. That's a very nice bag."
"Wow, this is an awesome bag. It's... sexy. I knew you had good taste but this is a hot bag."
She's already borrowed it for a meeting and said how good it made her feel.
What is this alchemy, this dark sensual magic Gary & Co are mixing into their beautifully crafted bag?
Quality. It's the new sexy.
I've been using the Bolt Crossbody bag for a few weeks now and I love it. It's the perfect size for my 2017 Surface Pro and has ample room for accessories, a Kindle, an Anker battery and a compact umbrella.
The quality of the bag is exceptional, and it looks great. My only complaint is that it didn't come with a shoulder pad like my older Muzetto and Field Muzetto bags by Waterfield.
What type of leather do you use?
We use naturally-tanned, lightly treated leather. Each piece is one of a kind and displays the natural texture of the hide. Over time the leather should show character like a good leather bomber jacket.
What is the advantage of a vertical bag?
The vertical positioning of the Bolt Crossbody bag helps to make your load feel lighter and less cumbersome, making your tablet more comfortable to carry.
What are splash proof zippers?
Both black ballistic and waxed canvas hold up well in rainy conditions. YKK's water repellent zipper enhances water resistance further protecting your gadgets in the main compartment.
Why is the bag lined gold?
The gold liner allows you to see the contents of your bag more easily and locate items more quickly. (With black or patterned liners, contents tend to blend in an be difficult to identify.)
