WaterField Holdall Debuts Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall Bag

WaterField Designs introduces the new Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall, a hybrid briefcase-fitness bag, designed to help professionals uphold Americans’ most popular New Year’s resolution: to get more exercise. One side of the Atlas Holdall features a padded MacBook and iPad compartment and organizational pockets for other work essentials; the other side boasts a spacious chamber for clothes and a collapsible, zippered space for shoes. The sophisticated carryall, packed daily for both work and workout, promotes healthy behaviors to improve work effectiveness and fitness in 2018.

 

 

Even though fewer than 40% of New Year’s resolutions survive the one-month mark, scientific research shows that it is possible to beat the discouraging odds. “Piggybacking” goals onto existing behaviors facilitates the creation of desirable new habits. The Atlas Holdall helps the fitness-minded professional create an enduring fitness habit by supporting two critical elements of successful habit building: the cue and reward.

 

Pre-packing work and exercise essentials in the Atlas Holdall each night facilitates the cue – professionals awaken with daily workout essentials ready-to-go. The convenience of carrying a single handsome, American-made bag that separates workout clothes from work gear provides the reward. Since regular exercise is linked to improved concentration, creativity, and mental stamina, the new exercise habits created by the Atlas Holdall will not only improve physical fitness, but will also enhance work performance.

 

“Now that I have everything I need for the office and for fitness training in my Atlas each day, I’ve created a no-excuse situation that makes it natural for me to exercise during or after work,” explained company owner Gary Waterfield. “I look forward to squeezing in a daily workout; afterwards, I get back to work feeling invigorated and ready to focus.”

 

The Atlas Holdall combines the best features of a professional briefcase and a fitness bag into one sleek design. In either classic, sturdy black ballistic nylon or rugged, tan, waxed canvas and premium full-grain leather accents, the Atlas Holdall looks as smart with a suit as it does with workout attire.

* A slim chamber, secured by dual waterproof zippers, serves as a briefcase. Inside, two built-in, padded sleeves protect an Apple laptop and an iPad, and additional pockets stow a power supply, cords, a pen or stylus, and other work necessities.
* Corner cut-outs on the laptop sleeve permit laptop charging while the device remains safely within.
*The TSA-friendly briefcase compartment opens flat so the MacBook remains protected inside while passing through TSA screening.
* A cavernous compartment, secured by dual waterproof zippers, stores clothing for exercise or for an overnight trip.
* A discrete, zippered, pouch separates shoes from apparel and work items in an interior pocket accessed from the outside. It recedes when not in use to maximize space.
* An exterior zippered front pocket holds quick-access items. Inside the exterior pocket, an Ultrasuede(R) iPhone pocket and a key fob make it easy to retrieve these items after a vigorous workout.
* An open-topped side pocket stores a water bottle.
* Gold rip-stop lining lights up the bag’s interior for improved visibility.
* Three carry options – dual leather-grip handles, a suspension shoulder strap, and a wheeled-suitcase handle pass-through – add to the Atlas Holdall’s versatility.

 

The Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall joins a full line of WaterField bags and cases that support Apple-enthusiast professionals in their daily lives. The Atlas is available exclusively from the WaterField Designs online store.

 

Weight and Dimensions:
* Canvas 3.4 lbs. Ballistic 3.1 lbs
* 16 x 10 x 8.5 inches
* Meets most airline personal carry-on-item size requirements
The Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall is priced at $429 (USD) and is available in Black ballistic nylon with black or chocolate full-grain leather details. Tan waxed canvas with full-grain, chocolate leather details. Available for order now. Pre-launch production run sold out. Next production run ships February 2, 2018.

Wild West Meets Modern with Waterfield Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger

WaterField Designs, a San Francisco designer-manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases, debuts the Maverick Leather Messenger, a premium laptop bag reminiscent of a Wild West postal satchel with functionality for modern-day professionals. Each Maverick is cut from a single full-grain leather hide with few seams and will develop a gorgeous patina over time. With padded laptop and tablet compartments and internal accessory pockets inside a raw-leather interior, the Maverick brings old-world artisanship into the digital age.

Wild West Meets Modern with Waterfield Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger

“In an increasingly disposable society, the American-Made Maverick Messenger Bag bucks the trend. It is built to last,” said owner Gary Waterfield. “This bag invites attention and will grow with you to bear the marks of your own unique story; it will look even more beautiful years from now than it does today.”

 

The Maverick’s uncluttered design keeps the bag compact, even when full. It features waxed-canvas, padded laptop and tablet compartments, and comes in a choice of two sizes: the Compact fits the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and other 13-inch Macs, and the Full fits the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina and similarly-sized laptops. Each also includes a 12.9-inch padded tablet pocket. Opposite that are two waxed-canvas accessory pockets, the first with a self-locking zipper to secure valuables and a second, open-topped for easy access. An angled shoulder strap and matching leather shoulder pad enhance comfort. A leather grab handle, secured with strong rivets, offers a more formal carrying option. The laptop messenger bag’s double leather flap closes with a leather tab and a secure screw stud, adjustable to two lengths.

 

The Maverick’s minimalist design highlights the bag’s exquisite leather and classic look. Available in black, chocolate or grizzly full-grain leather, each bag is cut from a single hide, ensuring an even tone and feel throughout. Thick, supple leather gives the bag structure. Inside, a raw leather main compartment shows off the beauty of the leather and the bag’s careful construction.

 

Padded laptop and tablet compartments:
* Compact – 13-inch padded laptop compartment fits MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and all 13-inch Macs. Padded tablet compartment fits up to 12.9-inch iPad Pro or similar tablet.
