Review WaterField Desings Muzetto Portable Leather Bag for iPad

Review WaterField Desings Muzetto Portable Leather Bag for iPad

Gadget Mac March - 13, 2011

"The craftsmanship of the Muzetto is second to none."
"The attention to detail is very impressive to say the least. I haven't seen such good stitching on most bags. Very well done."
Carrying the Muzetto around couldn't be any more comfortable. It's the perfect portable size to match the iPad and it's very easy to handle. The shoulder pad will make carrying your stuff around a pleasure and your neck will appreciate it even more if you decide to use the shoulder strap around your neck. Would I dare say this is one of the best leather bags around? In a heartbeat, yes. WaterField never disappoints.

Rating (out of 5): 4.5

The WaterField Muzetto Vertical Laptop Bag Review

Gear Diary - December 21, 2009.

"The beauty of the Muzetto it is that you can carry your necessities without bothering with a big bulky bag, and the Muzetto will hang nicely by your side – or across your body when worn bandoleer style.

"If you want a bag that is big enough to carry the necessities when carrying your computer -- but not too big and bulky, one that can be used as a day bag on its own when you aren't carrying a laoptop, the Waterfield Muzetto is a wonderful option which should perform well and last for ages.
"What I Like: Gorgeous leather bag with contrasting ballistic nylon trim; big enough to carry your laptop and all the necessities, not so big that you look like you've packed the kitchen sink; works as a fabulous day bag on its own."

WaterField Muzetto Portable Review

Gear Diary - April 23, 2010.

"The key is to find a bag which is large enough to hold the iPad and some other gear, but small enough to take advantage of the device's small size and, ideally, be stylish in the process. We've looked at a number of different bags, but by far the nicest I've seen yet comes from one of my favorite bag companies — WaterField.
When I saw that the company was coming out with a bag perfectly sized for use the iPad (the Muzetto Portable), I knew I wanted one. Well mine arrived yesterday, and I have to tell you... I love it. It's a beautiful, yet totally functional bag that I know I'll enjoy using."

Conclusion: Perfect for Carrying an iPad

Rugged and Spacious

I bought the mid-sized leather muzetto bag as a gift for my father, who is very happy with it! The main padded compartment will even fit a laptop. The leather material feels high-quality - soft but tough. This is another Waterfield classic.

Best of the best!

Extremely pleased with the quality and style! Definitely going to be a repetitive customer.

Nice looking but too big

I was looking for a low profile bag for my MacBook Pro but this actually is about and inch and half too long and 1 inch too wide which makes it over burdensome. There are better proportioned bags in this category like the Tom Bihn cafe bags. That said, the leather is nice. And it looks ok if a bit humongous for what you can and can’t fit in it.

Top to Bottom Beginning to End GREAT

The product is high quality, the design is top-notch, and the functionality is superb. There is a lot of thought that went into designing the bag I purchased. The process from ordering, shipping, and receiving took no time at all! I expected to get the bag in 5-7 days, received it 2 days after purchasing and I do not live anywhere near where it is made. I am looking forward to wearing this bag in and using it for years to come. Already am recommending this product to friends and coworkers.

Another great, useful and practical bag from Waterfield.

Superb design, materials, and craftsmanship. The packaging and shipping are perfect. The follow-up notes from your staff to keep me posted is so appreciated. I will use this on my business travel as I pack most business materials in checked luggage.

Thank you

Does the Muzetto have padding for a laptop or do you recommend that I use a SleeveCase with it?

The Muzetto is like a vertical, leather messenger bag. It's a very substantial bag with a protective padding compartment for laptops or tablets. Check the "What Fits" tab to find the best size for your needs.

Is your grippy Shoulder Pad included in the price of the Muzetto?

Yes, each Muzetto comes with a grippy shoulder pad that is about five inches long and dime thin. It allows the strap to slide through it so you can change from walking mode to access mode without taking the Muzetto off your shoulder. When you reach into your car or down to retrieve something the shoulder pad keeps the bag firmly in place.

How do you recommend I clean the leather on my Muzetto?

The leather is well-oiled so sometimes a good rub will do the trick. When it needs a bit more, we recommend a leather conditioner like lexol or one similar.
Or, if you don't want to listen to us... Throw it in the washing machine with bleach on hot. Then kiss that baby goodbye.

Why is the bag liner colored gold?

The gold liner allows you to see the contents of your bag more easily and locate items more quickly. (With black or patterned liners, contents tend to blend in an be difficult to identify.)
