WaterField Designs debuts the Sutter Tech Sling bag

WaterField Designs has introduced the Sutter Tech Sling bag, a one-strap backpack in two sizes with dedicated pockets to hold Apple’s new new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, the new MacBook Air, or the 13-inch MacBook Pro. 

Sutter Sling orders through Nov. 9 will include a complimentary new WaterField Stylus Pencil Case, a $39 padded accessory case with a dedicated Apple Pencil pocket. According to WaterField CEO Gary WaterField the new backpack is designed with features for easy access and comfort:

  • While remaining on one shoulder, the bag easily shifts to the front, allowing quick access to items in the exterior pocket from either side.

  • A unique swivel strap attachment grants 180-degree rotation so the bag rests flat against the body whether worn over one shoulder or crossbody.

  • A wide shoulder strap with a built-in, moveable shoulder pad distributes weight evenly.

  • A one-handed cam lock buckle lets users adjust how the bag rests against their body without removing the bag.

  • The iPad compartment keeps the back of the bag comfortably flat.

  •  Rear mesh padding enhances airflow and cushioning.

  •  Double, waterproof zippers enable entry to the main compartment from either side.

  •  A gold, water-resistant liner lights up the interior of the bag for increased visibility.

  •  An interior key fob attachment keeps keys quickly findable.

Available in two sizes and a choice of materials, the Sutter Tech Sling ($169-$179) remains compact even when fully packed. A tailor-fitted, padded laptop/tablet compartment in the Standard size holds: the new Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro or the Surface Pro 6, and the Full-size Sling holds: the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, or Surface Laptop 2. 

Three pen pockets — for the Apple Pencil and ballpoints — and an open-topped pocket, help keep gear organized inside leaving ample interior space for a water bottle, notebook, wallet, and more. An exterior pocket, hidden behind the leather panel, is protected from the elements with inset waterproof zippers and keeps items like a phone, train tickets, and mints within quick reach.
