Built well

The Outback Solo is built to last. I was very hesitant before I purchased this item because of price. The Solo will become a family heirloom once I'm gone. You get what you pay for with these products, nothing but the best.

Quality good... Functionality? Well...

I ordered a bag and a laptop sleeve and the quality / craftsmanship was extraordinary. Exactly what I’ve been looking for. Buuuuuuut they were way too small. I can’t imagine anyone using the bag I ordered, unless all you carry is a laptop. I couldn’t even fit the sleeve in the bag! While Waterfield accepted the return easily, I have to pay for shipping. Little irritating, but ok I guess. Now, it’s been over a week since I ordered a replacement bag (The Bolt Briefcase, which I’ve been assured will be functional enough) and FedEx appears to have lost it. Yes, I know Waterfield is not Fedex, but... Anyway, I hope I don’t have to return the next case if I ever receive it.

Fast Delivery & Quality Product

Very happy with my bag. Immediately can see the quality and it’s nice and compact when commuting to work on the train. Was very surprised how quick delivery was to Sydney, Australia. I was expecting delivery to take a month, but received it in less than a week.

A Review of the Outback Solo Messenger Bag by WaterField Designs

Tools & Toys - August 1, 2017

"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."


SIZE GUIDE

The main compartment in the Outback Solo is custom-fit for devices, like the: 

Microsoft Surface 

  1. Surface Pro X
  2. Surface Pro 7 (and previous Surface Pro models)
  3. Surface Go
  4. Surface Book 3 & 2 13.5-inch
  5. Surface Book 3 & 2 15 inch

  2. 13” MacBook Air Retina

Others (see Outback Solo for Laptops and Tablets)

  2. reMarkable (fits in Size #28)

 

The front pocket stores accessories like a power supply, cords, and other small items. It has a built-in pocket for the Surface Pen or Apple Pencil 2, and one for the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The back pocket can fit documents and other items.

SLEEVE + ACCESSORY PACK IN ONE

The secret to its minimalist profile is the front pocket that expands to hold bulky accessories and the beautiful leather flap that covers it nicely. 

 

"Everything I need, and nothing I don't need. I'll retire before this case does. I get compliments every day. The quality of the design and construction are very impressive!" - John B.

DETAILS MATTER: CUSTOM-MADE STRAPS

We designed a special strap system that would work for the Outback Solo which is both a sleeve and shoulder bag in one. We wanted it to sit flat against your body when carrying it, and hide the evidence of straps when used as a Sleeve inserted in other bags. This is achieved with clever placement of the hardware. 


The hooks are sewn underneath the pocket so it can be hidden from view when not using. Industrial-grade snap hooks on the straps prevent accidental openings.  We put a lot of thought in how you would carry your Outback Solo so you can wear it with confidence everywhere you go.  

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag.

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER AND WAXED CANVAS

 

If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Outback Solo Case for Surface, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.

 

Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
