The Waterfield team never cease to amaze me. Fantastic product, high quality and very easy on the eyes.
I am writing this on behalf of my girlfriend for whom I recently purchased the bag. Firstly, I will say that the item is impressive and appears to be of the high quality that Gary demonstrated in his videos. The bag is intended for a 13” MacBook Pro, which fits very securely and snug. Albeit a tight fit, that’s exactly what we desired. My girlfriend enjoys the vertical design as opposed to her previous horizontal style briefcase (much more comfortable to carry over the body). The front pocket and main inner compartment each offer just enough room for a few handfuls of laptop accessories (charger, mouse, pens, external HDs, small notebooks, etc.) and maybe a light long sleeve layer at the bulkiest. The distressed chocolate leather is beautiful and looks lovely with the other fabric.
This bag is certainly not intended for too much extra cargo, which is what makes it so useful as a stylish, compact laptop bag. She has yet to use it much as of yet, but says the back pocket (zippered directly behind the laptop compartment) is a bit too tight to be of much use. She’d prefer even a half cm more space but indicates this is a minor complaint.
That said, my only complaint – and the reason for the loss of a full 5 star rating, is the snafu in delivery. All was going well as the bag was on target to arrive in time for my girlfriend’s birthday, until I received another customer’s order on 3/12/20 (which is her birthday – thank you for the effort Gary, your early customer service was excellent). I won’t go into extraneous detail here, but needless to say the bag finally arrived on 3/18/20 (ordered 3/7/20).
In conclusion, this is a very nice product. With the test of time, perhaps I will buy a similar bag to house my MacBook Air. I'll just have the difficult task of choosing between multiple stylish options... Thanks folks!
I selected this bag to solve a particular need I had for carrying some key tools with me during warehouse site surveys. The bag holds my iPad Pro 11” and will simultaneously also accommodate my MacBook Pro 13” along with the a tape measure, hand tach, and laser measure. The bag is well made and gives me a nice lightweight onsite solution that maximizes my efficiency in getting things done.
I have been using the Bolt Cross Body bag for a few weeks now and am very pleased. Great materials, great finish. Three little things I would still change. The zipper to the main compartment of the bag I would like to see that it can be opened from both sides, like the Sutter Tech Sling. I carry the bag on the left side and therefore I have to reach all the way back to get to the zipper opener when I want to open the bag with my right hand. I would also like the strap to have a length adjustment on both sides. Finally, the magnet on the front flap could be a bit stronger. But these are absolutely small things. All in all a great bag, which I would buy again anytime.
Outstandingly made product! It fits me and my items inside perfect. I will be using this for many years.
