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.

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.
“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.

* 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.

San Francisco, California – Ahead of Apple’s MacBook Pro refresh, WaterField Designs today is proud to announce the new Maxwell MacBook Pro sleeve, available for pre-order at an early bird price until the October 27 event. The custom-fitted Maxwell laptop sleeve sports four vibrantly-colored textiles with a water- and stain-repellant Nano-Tex(R) finish, waxed canvas or ballistic nylon; shock-absorbing neoprene padding; a contrasting full-grain leather accent for easy grasping; and a smooth magnetic closure.
The handsome and protective sleeve is available in vertical or horizontal orientation; an optional strap converts the sleeve into minimalist stand-alone carry. WaterField Designs has been designing and manufacturing custom laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for digital gear in its San Francisco studio since 1998 and has developed custom-fitted sleeves for every Apple laptop since the Titanium Powerbook in 2001.
“We wanted to offer our customers something completely new to pair with Apple’s long-awaited, refreshed MacBook Pros,” explained company owner, Gary Waterfield. “With the Maxwell, we’re offering bold new colors – something our customers have been requesting, a new secure and silent magnetic closure, and water-repellent materials. We’re also offering ‘early bird’ pricing on preorders to help us get the initial surge of sleeves out to our customers faster.”
The Maxwell laptop sleeve epitomizes WaterField’s modern approach to design with its clean lines and streamlined look. Locally-manufactured LUNA(R) textiles on the case’s exterior combine with an acrylic backing, a layer of ballistic nylon, and shock-absorbing neoprene internal padding. These boldly-colored textiles – in Kelly green, Crimson red, Cobalt blue or Slate black – are treated with patented Nano-Tex(R) coating for extreme water- and stain-resistance.
WaterField also offers a rugged black ballistic or tan waxed canvas exterior with similar internal padding. A side-to-side magnetic closure opens smoothly and silently for easy access, and a swath of premium, full-grain leather at the bottom of the Maxwell Sleeve serves as an easy-grip area for removing the laptop. An optional shoulder strap converts the Maxwell into a minimalist laptop shoulder bag. The Maxwell joins the WaterField SleeveCase, Dash Sleeve and Suede Jacket as part of WaterField’s Apple laptop sleeve lineup.
