I've had a large variety of SFBags previously (Large Cargo with the original seatbelt buckle, Cozmo, sleeves, gear pouches), but I do admit that I strayed to another scrappy startup San Francisco bag maker a number of years back because I needed backpack carry.
Well, those bags I got, while interesting looking, can't hold a candle to the durability, build quality, and classic style that you get from a Waterfield. The Pro Executive fits everything I need with room to spare—even though the outward dimensions are smaller than the other pack I had. The last straw with my old bag was the main compartment zipper breaking....I doubt this will be a problem with this bag. There's just no substitute for a stout YKK zipper and this bag's got 'em.
I'm so happy to be back in the Waterfield family. And while I bought this bag with the Canadian Dollar being so bad, the pain was almost completely absorbed by smelling, feeling, and seeing the gorgeous leather and ballistic nylon that feels so familiar.
waiting for this to be delivered, I began to worry that this bag would look too big (I’m a 5”6 average build woman) but there was no need to worry at all. Love the bag, still getting to know it (and remember what I’m using each pocket for). If I had to make one recommendation it’d be a small zippered section inside. But, there may be one that I haven’t found or it may be completely unnecessary given all the zippered pockets on the outside.
Overall: love it
Good looking and stylish backpack, as described in the video at the website.. unfortunately have not used it much so far because of the lock down .. but very optimistic it will hold well, it feels very well made
Bought the backpack as a gift for daughter's boyfriend, who has just graduated from graduate school and will be starting a new job in a couple of weeks. Haven't had a chance to give it to him yet - quarantine and all - but the pack is gorgeous and I (and my daughter) think he'll love it. Great size for commuting on subway. Very impressed by the service and quick shipment of backpack. Great job by all!
