WaterField Designs announces Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief

WaterField Designs has announced the Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief in two sizes: the US $249 “Compact” to fit Apple’s newly-announced 13-inch MacBook Air, the anticipated 14-inch MacBook Pro, or the 13-inch Surface Pro, and the $259 “Full” to fit the 16-inch Apple MacBook Pro or the 15-inch Surface Pro.

Each Hitch Crossbody Brief includes two padded interior compartments: one for a laptop and another for Apple’s new 12.9-inch iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard. A main compartment, accessed from either side, features a padded laptop and padded tablet sleeve. Gold rip-stop lining lights up the interior making it easy to find everything else needed for a day’s work, even at the bottom of the bag, says company owner Gary Waterfield. Interior open-topped pockets, pen slots, and a quick-retrieval key tether are all raised off the bottom for convenient access and balanced weight distribution, he adds.

A zippered front pocket is larger than it appears thanks to expanders, so it can hold bulky items like a power brick or mouse without bulging. Inside the front pocket, additional organizational pockets keep quick-access items easy to locate. Flexible carry options include a removable suspension shoulder strap, two briefcase-style handles, and a wheeled suitcase passthrough. A full-grain leather base and front panel reinforce the bags.

Users can choose from a durable black ballistic nylon or rugged tan waxed canvas base. They can then opt for accents in one of two full-grain leather colors. 

You can pre-order now. First production run ships as soon as the gang at WaterField Designs are back in their San Fransico sewing studio (when the coronavirus outbreak is under control).
