replacement for a fire loss

Several years ago, I bought a laptop bag. I’m an urban professional, and often meet with thought and industry leaders. After an extensive search, I settled on the Waterfield Laptop cargo bag. I wore it for three years, and was always ready for what was to come. It kept my machine dry in the storms, it was appropriately sleek when it needed to be, and always had the capacity I needed. Then we had a house fire. My work laptop, was in my home office. My Waterfield bag melted around the laptop, but after the mess was pulled from the debris, the Apple powerbook opened and worked fine. The bag had given its all in the end to protect that which it had been made to protect. Last week, when I had to buy a new bag, there was no search. I went straight to Waterfield and ordered exactly the same bag. That never happens, in this world of commodities and endless choice. This company makes a great bag.

Cargo Laptop Bag

Hi, Gray and Waterfield
Thanks, the cargo laptop bag is good for my MacBook Pro 16 and iPad Pro 12.9. I received to the bag and it is useful for me and I satisfy this bag with carry a lot of my stuff. Just one thing it might be concerned to me that it is possible to design an anti-water cover for this bag due to the humidity of this climate in my country on occasion in some particular periods.
I would like to make a suggestion SFbag Waterfield can make a shot with YouTube channel how to use all products with tutorial step by seep.

thanks

Great LARGE Bag

I hadn't seen this bag in person before buying but it seemed to be loaded with great features I wanted - a built-in padded laptop compartment, separate divider for an iPad, zippered pockets, an easily accessible slip-in pocket in the back for quick access, external briefcase handles, quick and easy shoulder strap adjustments, and a large enough interior to carry everything I need to carry on a daily basis. I wasn't expecting it to be SO BIG. For me it's a few inches "taller" than my laptop, which means it's a few inches too tall for my needs, but it's nice to be able to put my umbrella in vertically instead of having to lay it down. It's tall enough to carry vinyl records which is a nice plus, but it's very light for its size. The strap is comfortable even under load - I was carrying a few heavy books for nearly three miles in the city, up steps, etc. and I never felt any back or shoulder pain. Very thoughtfully and well-designed bag, I just wish it came in multiple sizes, as I'd be more inclined to carry a "medium" version of this large bag.
