WaterField Designs is a San Francisco-based company that produces high quality bags and cases for your various forms of technology. Their products are American made and made to order (i.e. not mass produced). The latest design released is the new Bolt Crossbody laptop bag, which comes in three different sizes, and a variety of color/material combinations.
First things first, the Bolt Crossbody bag is durable, has a microfiber interior that is water resistant and contains separate sections for different kinds of tech. Obviously, there is a padded section for your laptop or tablet, but there are also sections for pens (including a Surface Pen if you have one) and an additional pocket that is a good size for a wallet or passport. This interior lining is gold in color, which is supposed to make it easier to see what all you may have dropped into the bottom of the bag. All of this is enclosed with a splash resistant YKK zipper.
The Bolt Crossbody bag also has a front exterior pocket that has a section for your cell phone that is large enough to hold an iPhone 7 Plus. In addition, the front pocket can expand to hold a basic camera, or similarly-sized gadget, and has a magnetic closure. It comes in black ballistic canvas, brown waxed canvas, or a combination, and has leather accents, including a rear handle.
Now, let’s look at some of the other information you might find handy if you’re considering purchasing a Bolt Crossbody laptop bag. You can carry it by the rear handle, over the shoulder, or in the crossbody style for which it’s named. The shoulder strap is attached to the bag with D rings and is adjustable, but is not removable. The smallest size (11″ x 9.25″ x 2.25″; 1.35 lbs.) easily holds iPads or tablets and is great for travel since it doesn’t take up much space. However, it isn’t quite tall enough to neatly hold standard-sized paper. The medium size (12.5″ x 9.5″ x 2.25″; 1.65 lbs.) is good for smaller laptops, like the 12” MacBook or NEW Surface Pro. Finally, the large size (14.25″ x 12″ x 2.25″; 1.85 lbs.) is made to accommodate larger laptops such as the 15” MacBook Touch Bar or Surface Book. Check out WaterField Designs’ webpage for the New!
