WaterField Debuts Outback Tote & Apple Laptop Sleeves

WaterField Designs' Waxed Canvas & Leather Outback Line Debuts Tote and Custom-Sized Laptop Sleeve for 15-Inch MacBook Pro With Retina Display Plus Other Apple Laptops

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 12, 2012) - WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves and designer bags and cases for digital-minded professionals, introduces the Outback Tote and the Outback Sleeve for Apple laptops. The Outback line combines durable waxed canvas with sturdy leather for a relaxed, professional look ideal for busy digerati. The Outback Weekender and the Outback Daily are go-everywhere, hold-everything Tote bags that double as travel bags or briefcases. The Outback Laptop Sleeve provides protection with a sophisticated, rugged look that can go from office to field.

"The Outback represents one of our new styles," explained Gary Waterfield, company founder. "It has a masculine look and a patina that changes over time to give every bag a unique character. Its muted waxed-canvas color and distressed leather make the Outback sophisticated enough for work, and functional enough for play."

The Outback Tote comes in two sizes -- the medium Outback Daily for commuters, and the larger Outback Weekender for travelers. The sturdy canvas can hold heavy items and the leather strap length allows users to carry it by the handles or over the shoulder. A large, interior zippered pocket keeps passports, wallets, keys, and other essentials out of sight. The facing side includes a pocket sized to hold an iPad (and in the Weekender, one additional pocket for more items). The tote can be zippered shut or kept open to haul oversized items.

The Outback Laptop Sleeve provides the same excellent protection as the WaterField SleeveCase line. Shock-absorbing neoprene and a waxed canvas shell combine for a custom-fit for any Apple laptop. The sleeve can be used alone or stashed into the Outback Tote, the Muzetto Outback, or any other WaterField bag.
