My last SFbags briefcase lasted 10+ yrs. Was finally time for a new one. Love the Exec Laptop Backpack. Beautiful bag, high quality, very spacious. I use it everyday for work and plan to use it instead of suitcase for weekend trips.
Pro Executive Laptop Backpack
Anyone who has had a WaterField product knows the quality to expect and this backpack is no acceptation it’s a gorgeous bag with generous amount of space and it holds its shape perfectly. Another amazing product to add to my collection
Bought this originally as a gift for someone, loved it so much bought one for myself in a different color. Lots of space, useful pockets. Would buy again!
I have been on the hunt for an american made bag for a while. My old USA made messenger bag was getting long in the tooth. I have been on two work trips with my new Waterfield bag and it ROCKS. Solidly built, well thought out pockets and zippers. I am very happy.
