Waterfield Designs unleashes the Maverick leather laptop messenger

WaterField Designs’ new Maverick leather laptop messenger bag will begin shipping Feb. 7; you can pre-order now. It’s made of premium full-grain leather, each one cut from a single hide.

The Maverick sports padded laptop and tablet compartments and pockets for tech accessories. It’s designed to “bring old-world artisanship into the digital age” and is “built to last,” says Waterfield Designs owner Gary Waterfield. The Maverickfeatures 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 are designed to 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 is available in black, chocolate or grizzly full-grain leather. The 13-inch model is $299; the 15-incher is $329.
