WaterField Designs (www.sfbags.com) is bringing back the iconic Rough Rider Leather Messenger with its original Old-West charm and ruggedness.
Now revamped with a plush, padded laptop compartment, a pass-through to slide over wheeled suitcase handles, and gorgeous new leather accent colors. The new padded laptop compartment readily fits up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro, and the thick, full-grain leather develops a handsome patina over time. Shipping begins by May 4. It’s available for pre-order for $429. Classic features of the 16.5 x 11.5 x 3.5 inch messenger bag include:
° Construction of thick, full-grain leather with raw edges;
° A dual-layer leather flap that shuts securely with strong snaps and is adjustable to two lengths, so users can fill the bag to capacity or cinch it tight;
° An unlined interior and natural edges reveal the leather’s premium quality;
° A leather panel under the flap that creates a color splash and is available in six color choices;
° A strap system that compresses bag contents to maintain a slim profile and positions the bag snugly against the body to help ease back fatigue;
° Two deep, waxed canvas pockets in the main compartment fit an iPad, iPhone and additional necessities;
° A full-width, luxuriously-soft, lined pocket under the flap stows additional electronics or personal items;
° A floating shoulder pad with a no-slip underside keeps the shoulder strap in place;
° A top leather handle allows for a quick grab.
