The Large Cargo is now available in two styles - standard or with a padded internal stiffener which allows the Cargo to stand on it's own.

Review: The WaterField Cargo

Expedition Portal

"...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."

Review: WaterField Cargo Bag

JetPlane Journal

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.

Highly Recommended

What is the difference between the Large, Medium and Small Cargo bags?

The main difference is that the Large Cargo comes with the option of a padded internal stiffener that allows it to keep its full shape and to stand up on its own. Without the stiffener it is considered a soft bag and will hang more like a traditional messenger bag, though we do use a very substantial custom made ballistic nylon to help give it nice shape. The Large is about 2" deeper than the medium and gets wider and longer at the top allowing the user to insert bigger items. It will hold more gear--it is a large bag. The Cargo bags without the internal stiffener will get smaller/flatter as you take contents out.

The Large Cargo has a pocket in the back of the main compartment to keep small laptops secure. Larger laptops that don't fit into this rear pocket can fit securely end to end within the main compartment. The Medium and Small Cargo do not have this rear internal pocket because they are small enough to compress around their contents and hold the laptop securely.

What is the difference between the Large Cargo and the Large Cargo With Padded Stiffener?

The Padded Stiffener adds protection to the Large Cargo and allows it to stand on its own and to keep its full shape. The standard Large Cargo, while also substantial, is more like a traditional messenger bag. The standard Large Cargo is just like the Medium and Small Cargo...only bigger. It will get smaller/flatter as you take contents out of it.

In the Large Cargo with Padded Stiffener is the stiffener removable?

No.

How big is the large Cargo?

It's big. If you are a petite person, it could be rather large for you.

What is the difference between the Cargo and the Cozmo?

Each has its own distinct style. The Cargo has the functionality of a briefcase and the look of a messenger bag. It includes a number of organizational pockets and compartments. The Large without Stiffener, the Medium and the Small Cargo bags are soft like a messenger. The Large Cargo with Stiffener has the padded internal stiffener that allows it to stand up and keep its full shape. The shoulder strap is not detachable; One side is sewn down and the other is attached to a quick-adjust Cam-lock so you can quickly shorten or lengthen the strap.

The Cozmo has a more streamlined style, stands up on its own, is a bit lighter in weight and comes with the Suspension Shoulder Strap that is removable.

Why don't the medium and small Cargo bags have an internal SleeveCase pocket?

The Medium and Small Cargo do not have this pocket because they are small enough to compress around their contents and hold the laptop securely.

Do I need a SleeveCase for my laptop when using the Cargo bag?

We recommend the use of a SleeveCase to protect your laptop when inserted inside any bag because the SleeveCase gives you added protection from bumps and scratches. However, with our bags, you don't HAVE to use the SleeveCase; it just depends on how much protection you want. The bag itself if not padded specifically for a laptop - that way you can use it without one as well.

Which shoulder strap comes with the Cargo?

The Cargo comes with a non-removable 'static' shoulder strap and a comfortable, no-slide Shoulder Pad. The Shoulder Pad is designed to move along the shoulder strap so you can place the pad on your shoulder even if you move the Cargo from your side to your back.

What kind of leather do you use on the front flap?

We used a 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.
