The Piggyback offers flexible storage when used with your SleeveCase. The piggyback comfortably stores your power supply, mouse, hard drive, or phone. It's really up to you what you store inside, all while keeping a thin profile.
The accessory bag is of the same outstanding quality of all Waterfield bags.
I have one small issue with it is that the bag. The straps that you use to clip it on the main bag are just a little too long so the accessary pack hangs below the main bag.
Other than that the bag has plenty of room for all the accessaries I want to carry with my iPad Pro.
The other thing I would like to add is that, while the Piggyback Accessary Pack is a 5-star pack, I wish that I didn’t need it and there was storage in my iPad Pro case like in my old-style iPad case.
Lastly, Waterfield Designs has been my goto back provider through several iPads and iPad minis and will be again!
UPDATE: As soon as Waterfield saw my minor complaint in the review about how low the accessary bag hangs, then contacted me and tole me that they were sending me a new on….all without my asking. Now that is customer service!
I originally bought the accessory pack to use for carrying mice or cables for my sleeve, but found it great to be a great small pack that can clip anywhere or clipping into a loop onto the other clip as a handle. It is perfect as a portable pocket that I can use for my phone, wallet, keys, eye drops (for contacts) and any other items I don't like carrying in my pants pockets. I am thinking of getting another so I have one for my sleeve again.
I purchased the piggyback accessory bag to use with my tech folio plus. Gary was very helpful when I inquired if the piggyback would work with my bag. He assured me it would I’ve been using it for a little over a week and it looks great and it adds the additional room I need.
Always struggled with all my cables and chargers when traveling for longer. This little bag is amazing. Hooks onto the main laptop bag, and when I don't need it, I simply take it off and travel light.
Works well with the MacBook sleeve case which I bought at the same time, though I've been using it separately as well, as an odds and ends bag. I'd certainly recommend anyone thinking of getting the MacBook sleeve case to get one of these, for a charger, cables, ear buds etc. One comment: If it had D-rings you could attach it to a belt and use it as a bum bag (what you may call a fanny bag) - but still great as it is.
How do I attach it to a SleeveCase?
If you have a SleeveCase or order one at the same time that you order the Piggyback, be sure that you have a SleeveCase with a shoulder strap, or just D-rings so that you will have the proper hardware where you can attach the Piggyback.
How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?
The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.
How do you suggest I clean the waxed canvas?
Waxed Canvas isn’t the easiest item on the planet to clean - part of the character-building process with Waxed Canvas is how it ages with scuffs, dirt, stains and all. Still, there are things you can do. This article gives you a good idea of how to clean and re-wax if and when you are ready. They suggest using dish soap and soft brush to clean, then drip dry, then take a hot hairdryer to heat up the wax and redistribute it. This will soften any blemishes and help with the dirt. The lines and crinkles on the waxed canvas are actually normal, and happens in shipping sometimes. All you have to do is use a hair dryer and you can flatten out the wax with your hand.
