WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com) has announced the Cozmo 2.0, an all-leather laptop briefcase.
You can stow your laptop in the padded laptop compartment and have plenty of room for lots more gear. The Cozmo’s naturally-tanned, distressed, full-grain leather—sourced from a US Tannery—is soft and luxurious, says Gary Waterfield, owner of WaterField Designs. A deep outside front pocket secures shut with a leather tab and classic metal screw stud.
There are waterproof zippers. A stiff (hidden) plate lines the bottom of the bag giving it structure to stand on its own. Additional features address professionals’ daily needs. Dual zippers open the main compartment wide for access to the interior. A gold liner brightens the main compartment as if someone “turned a light on” inside.
A padded laptop compartment lines one side; on the other, two internal hanging pockets add organization capability, and a key tether keeps keys or a pouch at hand in a hurry. Comfortable dual leather handles and an off-set, removable shoulder strap allow users to carry the Cozmo briefcase- or messenger-bag- style. The off-set strap keeps the bag from bouncing around and creates a weightless feel. A slide-through strip lines the exterior of the rear outside pocket allowing business travelers to slide the Cozmo onto a rolling suitcase.
The Cozmo 2.0 costs US$369 for the model that fits up to a 13-inch laptop and $389 for the one that holds up to a 15-inch laptop. It’s available in “chocolate” or black colors.
