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."

Gary’s bag

THe messenger leather bag is exactly what I was looking for in a dual MacBook/tablet bag. The leather is rich, supple and the craftsmen ship fantastic. The bag is well worth the price and I look forward to additional purchases from Waterfield.

Beautiful Bag

I love my new bag; very high quality, great smelling leather, and perfectly sized (I have the regular size after returning the small one as I felt it was too small for me). Waterfield's customer service is also top notch!

Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger

Waterfield products are consistently well made, durable, and fashionable.
I have purchased about 10 items from them.
This particular bag has become my everyday favorite.
It can be used to carry a little, or a lot.
The latching mechanism on the front of the bag, gives you that expandable option.
As to it’s looks, WOW. It has an old world look, that I really enjoy.
The shoulder strap is very comfortable even when the bag is loaded with material.
I guess you could say that this bag, not only performs as advertised, but then some.
Thank you to Gary and Team.

Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger Bag

Perfect for work and travel and exceptional quality.

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.
