"As someone on the go, I love the messenger bag. I use one every day. For the past several weeks, I’ve been sporting The Cargo by Waterfield and loved every moment."

"From now on, the Cargo Laptop Bag is my go-to when I’m looking at taking a few more things with me, especially when I need a carry-on or bike bag that looks as good on my back as it does near my feet while I work."

"I picked up my first WaterField Designs Cargo bag 10 years ago. This new model offers improvements that make it a compelling choice for the commuter and business traveler."

“In addition to durability and usefulness, WaterField Designs' Cargo laptop bag just plain looks great.”
"The Waterfield Cargo looks like fairly typical messenger-style bag at first. ...But there are ton of nifty design touches that make the bag very practical in everyday use:
The top zip makes it easy to get stuff from the main compartment without lifting up the main flap. The interior fabric is a bright colour, that makes it easy to find things inside. The back pocket is great for your iPad or a folder with papers. Unlike other messenger bags that I've owned, that have all started to fall apart at the seams after a few months of owning them, this bag feels as though it will give me a good few years of use.
"...bag with a seemingly magical ability to swallow up gear while simultaneously making it easier to load and unload."
"This is a bag that will easily last a lifetime—a good thing, as the Cargo has become my all-time favorite bag."

"The WaterField Designs Cargo Bag is a quality bag that is made in the United States...and will last you a long, long time."
No. The new Cargo includes a full-padded laptop compartment that keeps up to a 15-inch MacBook safe and secure. A small nylon flap keeps your laptop in place.
A very cool piece of hardware. An anodized aluminum buckle used in paragliding harnesses. It makes for easy, quick access and secures shut with a satisfying click.
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.
