High Quality Bag!

The Developer's Gear Case was the perfect choice for all of my cords, cables, and other electronic accessory items. I love the material it is made out of and I feel like it will last a lifetime or longer. Thank you Waterfield! Your product will be used by my family and I for many years to come.

I really like this case and store my extra cords and computer needs. I have several bags and pack packs and have been a big fan of Waterfield because of the quality and they remain service oriented!! Thanks Gary


Developer's Gear Case

It’s A Life Saver

We travel often and had no one place to pack and carry all our miscellaneous cables, adapters, battery, webcam, etc. until now.

Well made and designed the Gear Case has become our "go to” pack.

Suggestion - rename the case - not just for developers - any well connected individual would enjoy having this Case.
