Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase for New MacBook Pro 16

WaterField Designs debuts the Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase, a premium work bag reminiscent of an old-world briefcase handed down through generations but with modern functionality for the high-tech era. Each Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase is crafted from a single full-grain leather American Bison or cow hide for a consistent tone within each unique bag. With a padded laptop compartment designed to hold Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro, a padded iPad compartment, efficient pockets, and three carry options, the Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase ushers old-world artisanship into the digital age.

 

 

“We were drawn to the America Bison leather’s variable pebbled grain and stunning luster. As an American manufacturer, we appreciate that it’s a historic American leather sourced only in North America,” said company owner Gary Waterfield. “The bag’s simple silhouette showcases this durable leather’s head-turning beauty, while its modern details and functionality make it a fitting bag for contemporary professionals.”

 

The American-Made Executive Leather Laptop Briefcase is a durable handcrafted bag, built to last. Thick, supple leather gives the bag structure. A clean aesthetic highlights its premium materials. Unique hardware, thoughtful design details, and tech-friendly features make this laptop briefcase a statement piece that will withstand the test of time.

 

Three carry options keep users comfortable and looking sharp whether rushing to board meetings, commuting, or dashing through airports. Dual leather handles attach to rivet-secured triangular hardware that adds a touch of the geometric modernist art aesthetic. These handles swivel fully outward granting unobstructed access to the main compartment and pockets. A comfortable removable shoulder strap includes a detachable sliding leather pad that keeps the strap in place. A wheeled suitcase pass through makes navigating airports a breeze.

“We have our customers to thank for the return of the Rough Rider; ever since we retired it years ago, we get customer requests for it every week,” explained company owner Gary Waterfield. “We’ve kept the popular rough and tumble, old-world look and added functionality for laptop-toting professionals and for travelers.”

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.

Syde MacBook Pro Touch Bar Case – A Minimalist Carry from WaterField Designs

WaterField Designs today is proud to announce the new Syde Case – a custom-fitted case that bridges the gap between a laptop sleeve and briefcase – for Apple’s highly-anticipated, new MacBook Pro Touch Bar laptops. The lightweight, slim Syde carries and protects a minimalist professional’s entire mobile office – laptop, accessories and essentials. The Syde combines a fitted, laptop sleeve in rugged ballistic nylon or waxed canvas with a large, full-grain leather, soft-lined compartment for laptop accessories, wallet, keys and iPhone. WaterField has been designing and manufacturing laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for digital gear in its San Francisco studio since 1998, and has developed custom-fitted cases for every Apple laptop since 2001.

 

“These days all I usually need is my laptop and cords, iPhone and pocket basics,” noted company owner, Gary Waterfield. “For the Syde, we set out to design a sophisticated and functional case that fits into any environment and that carries everything a minimalist professional like me needs. I love the laptop compartment’s silent magnetic closure that lets me retrieve my laptop quietly during meetings and the ability to sling the new Syde over my shoulder or carry it with the more-formal handles.”

 

A black ballistic or waxed canvas, neoprene-lined, laptop compartment in custom-fitted MacBook Pro Touch Bar sizes forms the basis of the light, compact Syde Case. The front sports a soft-lined, full-grain leather compartment with internal organizational pockets: pen slots including one sized for the Apple Pencil and a padded, dedicated compartment for an iPhone. Ample space in the leather compartment remains for a MacBook power brick, a wallet and keys, or for a small WaterField Gear Pouch to organize items separately. A side-to-side magnetic closure opens smoothly and silently for easy laptop access, and an open-topped back pocket stores an extra magazine or files. An external bottom loop helps ease the laptop out of its snug-fitting case. Leather handles and a removable shoulder strap allow users to carry the bag briefcase- or messenger-style.

 

WaterField has been crafting custom-fitted sleeves and cases for every Apple laptop since Steve Jobs first introduced the Titanium PowerBook. To accommodate users’ individual needs, WaterField Designs offers additional cases with a range of functionality and protection – the minimalist Suede Jacket Sleeve, the svelte Dash Sleeve, the workhorse SleeveCase and the newly-introduced, colorful Maxwell Sleeve, each custom-fitted to individual MacBook sizes. Many WaterField Designs bags include internal sleeves to protect MacBooks in transit.

 

Pricing and Availability:
The Syde MacBook Case is priced at $159 (USD). There are sizes for the 15-inch MacBook Pro Touch Bar, 13-inch MacBook Pro Touch Bar, 13-inch MacBook, MacBook 12-inch. Color options and materials: Black ballistic nylon with full-grain leather pouch in black or grizzly leather. Tan waxed Canvas with full-grain leather pouch in grizzly. All Syde cases include a removable shoulder strap. WaterField Designs ships worldwide from its online store. The Syde Case is available now for preorder. The 13-inch sizes ship early November. The 15-inch size ships mid to late November.

WaterField Announces Maxwell MacBook Sleeve Ahead of October Apple Event

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.
