I'm calling to my very picky bag friends. I've been on a hunt for a long time for the perfect bag for me. I have too many bags, searching for the one. I've owned/own TomToc bags, Alpaka, Incase, Inatek, Belroy, and Maxpedition to name a few. Every one of those bags I made a concession in one way or another for. (I know I'm picky). I'd been on the hunt for some way to EDC my iPad pro 12.9'. It's huge but I use it for art and I didn't want a full on laptop bag, or backpack. I wanted something slim, but could also hold a couple of other items. I honestly don't even remember how I stumbled on this Waterfield bag. I do own another Waterfield product but it's just some switch cartridge cases. (Which has only looked better with age since it's made from leather).
Anyway I came across this bag and thought it looked beautiful, it's the perfect size for what I want and looks great with any of my outfits. After owning for a while now I'll tell you my favorite features, magnetic latch, soft wide strap, and loops on the side where I can hang my keys or hand sanitizer, soft lining, leather cover and the waxed canvas looks awesome. The best part is I had just ordered a Lochby Field Journal which is also waxed canvas and it matches my bag! Now it's part of my EDC in this bag. There aren't a ton of pockets which has really helped me pare down my EDC to only the essentials. There's room in the bag, but I find I don't need em and prefer the slim profile instead of bulking my bag out.
Two often overlooked items that I really enjoy on this bag are the side loops (which let you remove the straps and hide them) and the soft wide strap. I had having a great bag but the strap is too thin and becomes uncomfortable, or that there are no loops to hang my keys, or other quick click items.
This bag will be my EDC for many years to come in whatever iteration it looks like. I look forward in seeing how the patina, scratches, and scuffs on the body make it all the more characteristic and uniquely mine.
I was impressed with the design and rugged appearance of the case. It fit the laptop perfectly, and has another pocket that my iPad fits in also. I was not familiar with them, but I would now seriously consider acquiring other products from Waterfield.
i love it! but its a very tight fit. I cant put my small wacom tablet, ipad and my macbook 14” in together. i was hoping to be able to do that but its beautiful and I love it.
Thanks to Gary who helped me find the right case for my Apple iPad 5th Air and minor items like charger and cable, this bag is SO Awesome. Small, light and I use it all the time anymore. Thanks Gary!
This is already my second Outback Solo Case and I'm still very convinced. Thanks.

"For the first time, I’m genuinely excited about the bag I’m carrying. I have what I need, and a minimal messenger silhouette to match. If the concept of a minimal daily carry — that gives constant little reminders of how special it is — appeals to you, I strongly recommend the Outback Solo by WaterField."
