Waterfield Designs Maverick Laptop Messenger Bag review

The Gadgeteer - April 16, 2017

"Waterfield has—once again—made a product that should give years of use. The leather Maverick messenger bag should last long enough to hand down to a new generation should you want to get a new bag or backpack later."

Excellent bag

I've bought many products from SF bags, and they've all been smartly designed and exceptionally well made. The Maverick continues their now long tradition of quality on every front.

Shoulder Strap Needs Swivel Hooks

LOVE THE BAG! No question of its quality, form factor, or usability. I am heavy traveler, thus the laptop should strap is key to being adjusted and flexible. Currently, the strap is affixed/sewn into the bag. Thus, continuous should strap adjustments (flips,turns, etc) are necessary and commonplace. Can be annoying in a hurry and if you are OCD.

My Precious!

TLDR: this is the best messenger bag I have seen in a long time and it's my new best friend during my travels

Long review: The Maverick did what I thought impossible, replace and even surpass my former messenger bag. I had been carrying a Daniel Hetcher messenger bag for more than 5 years and it had been an amazing my travel companion. However, after it started falling apart, I had to hunt for a new one and it was not easy. I have looked at an incalculable number of stores, models, and designs. I even looked into buying the same bag again, but I had found it in a store in the Philippines and they just didn't make them anymore, no matter what country I looked into.

Finally, I found the Maverick. The dimensions were similar to my old messenger bag and when I asked Gary if it was possible to increase the length of the strap, he quickly answered and told me it was doable. So I jumped the gun and I couldn't be happier. The quality of the leather is impressive and I even got compliments already from relatives! The material feels supple but resistant. The interior is well designed and I can easily fit everything I need with me on the plane. The quality and design even beat the Tumi Matthews Messenger bag I was considering and the Maverick is less than half the price! It truly is the gold standard of messenger bags.

Will I need to put my iPad Pro or MacBook in a sleeve?

It's not necessary. The Maverick has two built-in compartments that will snugly hold your devices.

How should I treat the leather?

We don't recommend doing anything. The first scratch or nick will may shock you but it's on it's way to developing a beautiful patina.

Does the Maverick come with a shoulder pad?

Yes, the Maverick comes with a removable, matching leather shoulder pad.
