maintaining simplicity for the M1 iPad Pro 11 inch

I had the Outback for 3 years with my previous iPad Pro 10.5. Recently I upgraded to the M1 iPad Pro 11 inch with the Magic Keyboard, and so i purchased the Outback for that model/combination.

I use the Outback daily to take my iPad to the office. This newer Outback fits the iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard perfectly. It’s not too tight to have to force the iPad in/out, nor is it a loose, sloppy fit. The padding gives me peace of mind when I’m setting down the bag, knowing that it’s cushioned.

The outside pocket maintains a slim design, but carries all I need. I always put into the pocket a 30W Apple charger, a 2-meter charger cable, iPhone and phone charger cable, Apple Pencil, and AirPods. There is room to spare for other things that I occasionally add like keys, a hard drive, dongles, etc.

The strap is super convenient. It frees up my hands going to/from car to office. it’s a personal preference of mine rather than having my hands full of things when I walk.

The overall form factor maintains the simplicity of the iPad, which for me has replaced my laptop.

Lastly, Waterfield gives great attention to detail. For example, the older Outback for the 10.5 iPad had a pencil sleeve in the flap area because the original apple pencil was too long/tall for for the outside pocket. That worked well. However, I’m glad to have the pencil sleeve moved to inside the pocket now because it’s immediately noticeable if the pencil is in there, rather than having to flip over the bag to see if the pencil is in the flap. It’s a small thing, which is my point. Little things like this show how Waterfield thinks through every detail of their bags.

Very good quality

Just got my new WaterField Designs bag for my new M1 iPad Pro 12.9” and am very pleased indeed with the design and quality.
Exactly what I hoped it would be. Looking forward to seeing what they come up with when I'm in the market for the new M2 14" Mac Pro.
You can't beat bespoke. Lovely leather and great wax cotton finish.

Excellent quality

Haven’t got to use the bag yet as I’m still waiting on my iPad to be delivered but I’m very satisfied with the quality of this bag. I bought the iPhone pouch maybe a year ago and still use it today. Very satisfied

Quality Product & Customer Service as well Fast Delivery

I’m new to the WaterField Brand and it's my first purchase from them, and it won’t be my last.
I purchased the Outback Sole for my 11” iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard and I absolutely love it. It’s well worth the money and will be the last case I’ll need to buy for years to come, it's now become my go-to bag, and the build quality is fantastic and really well made as well as being very functional. Delivery service was very fast as it arrived in the UK just three days after placing my order. I’m now considering getting the Small Gear Pouch to fit into the front pocket to keep all my cables and accessories together. I honestly can’t say enough good things about it, it's just that good. Thanks Gary and the staff at Waterfields for making this great bag for my iPad Pro

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

Apple MacBook & iPad Pro (see Outback Solo for MacBook and iPad)

  1. 16" MacBook Pro
  2. 13” MacBook Air Retina
  3. 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
  4. iPad 12.9” with NEW Magic Keyboard
  5. iPad 11” with NEW Magic Keyboard

Others (see Outback Solo for Laptops and Tablets)

  1. Pixel Slate
  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.
