WaterField Designs has given us the Rough Rider leather messenger bag, a throwback to the past with modern functionality.
The Rough Rider’s strap system compresses bag contents to maintain a slim, neat profile and it positions the bag snuggly against the body to help ease back fatigue, according to Gary Waterfield, CEO of WaterField Designs. It’s constructed of naturally-tanned leather. A splash of nylon under the flap (in six color choices) allows for customization.
The laptop bag main compartment can house a 13-inch laptop or tablet, along with files, chargers, and other necessities. There are two waxed canvas pockets in the main compartment and two additional scratch-free, lined pockets under the flap.
The flap snaps shut with two options to adjust based on the bulk of what’s inside. A removable no-slip shoulder pad keeps the adjustable strap in place. A leather handle sits at the top for a quick grab.
The Rough Rider is priced at US$335. It’s available for pre-order at WaterField Designs online. Shipping begins Feb. 28. Go to http://tinyurl.com/khulr7z for details.
