High-Quality Professional Bag for my MBP

After a fair amount of online research, I decided to go with Waterfield for a new bag for my MacBook Pro 16” that I often take to and from office. As such, the bag needed to be both professional in appearance but also functional - and it succeeds on both counts. My only compliant is that the clip while easy to release, is somewhat clumsy to fasten and usually takes two hands and a bit of fumbling. Otherwise quite happy with the bag.

Great Bag!

I couldn’t be happier with my new Staad Attaché. So pleased with the quality and workmanship.

Beautiful Bag

This is a well designed and well made bag, probably the best you can get if it fits your gear and needs. I got it in 15” black nylon and leather. They seem to have added a key lanyard to the inside, which is a nice unadvertised feature. As others have pointed out, the front clip is a little fussy to open and close—I’d prefer a magnet either instead or in addition. I’ve also mistaken the back luggage band for a pocket and dropped objects right through it—something to distinguish it from the newspaper pocket would be nice. I also worry a little about the shoestring zipper pulls eventually getting unlooped and lost, I’d rather have a regular metal pull.

If they ever decided to make this bag entirely out of leather like a briefcase, it would be a super stylish option.

Overall great—if WaterField didn’t seem to be such an attentive company, I wouldn’t even include my picky comments.

I’ve been looking for this bag for years

Absolutely love this bag—I’ve been looking for a well designed, attractive messenger bag for years, and this is perfect. I love the waxed canvas exterior, and the attention to detail throughout. The weight is distributed well when slung across my torso… this is just a fantastic find.
