Love the leather messenger. Lots of room to carry a laptop, iPad and files. Easy to sling over the shoulder and go. Good balance to the bag

Excellent Bag

I had the Airporter before this messenger. The airporter was an excellent bag but I wanted something that was full leather and since e quality was so incredible with the airporter, I decided to stick with Waterfield designs.

The leather messenger is absolutely gorgeous. I have the chocolate leather and it’s just a great bag for the office. It sits comfortably on the shoulder and the leather is top notch.

You can’t go wrong with Waterfield and you can’t go wrong with this bag.

Great product

Excellent quality and well thought out design. Wish the back luggage slot would have been another pocket instead - for quick access to items.

Fantastic bag

I went for the full version and plenty of space for macbook pro 13” and ipad pro 12.9”, adaptors, cable. Love the bag, well designed and made, smooth interior pockets, the leather quality... Very comfortable to wear too. Highly recommended

A Little Tight

In the Compact with an iPadPro 12.9" and 15" MacBook Pro there is very little room for anything else. The iPad w/ Smart Cover and Back does not fit well in it's special pocket. I do love the small size but only if you plan for a laptop OR a iPad not both (or maybe a 13" Laptop and a smaller iPad). I'm going to keep this for my day-to-day when I only need my laptop AND buy the bigger Full size for traveling. I wish the shoulder strap was removable. Thinking of cutting it off and replacing. Sorry to sound negative, I love the bag!
