Waterfield Designs Vitesse Messenger Bag Review

Best Leather - 7/23/16

"Vitesse is a French noun meaning speed. The word suggests a European zest combined with rapid utility. It’s the perfect name for the Waterfield Designs Vitesse Messenger Bag. The bag is simple, lightweight, and has a certain flair in its design."

Almost perfect

This has been my daily driver for over a year now. I throw at least one laptop, sometimes two, in the velcro'd off area, along with a legal pad and papers and use the front area for water bottles, glasses cases, etc. The three organizational pockets are awesome and are great for storing chargers, cables, and other smaller items. I can flip open the outer cover and grab whatever it is that I'm looking for without any rummaging around, which I think is the major buying point for this particular bag. The zippered front stows aren't very useful since they access the same large area that goes across the whole front, but I'll use the soft pocket on the inside of the right stow for my phone occasionally.

As for the 'almost' part of my title, the design of this bag has a few flaws that are worth considering: The way the handle is placed puts tension on the leather clasps when carrying a heavier load, which stretches the holes out over time, so in six months the bag doesn't stay closed as well as it did when you first get it. Things aren't flying out because a clasp has undone itself, but one might come undone as you put the bag down and the top relaxes. Also, the bag has only one layer of material along the back (the cover looks like it's two layers) which means you should definitely have a sleeve for your laptop. Those things are certainly not dealbreakers for me, and the quality that you get for a bag that can literally be folded up and put in a shoebox is astounding. I think I'd buy this bag again, but the way it's holding up, I don't think I'll ever need to buy another one.

What is the Vitesse Collection?

Although vitesse is French for "speed", the only speedy thing about the Vitesse Collection is how fast it can help you transition from casual to work and vice versa. The straightforward, un-complicated designs use lightweight canvas and full-grain leather to create contemporary pieces from old favorites. This collection is committed to the essentials, and have an easy, relaxed style: few pockets, no lining, no extra hardware. Fold and take them along as second travel bags, or use as your primary carry-all.
