If you’re not aware of San Francisco, California company Waterfield and its line of computer bags, you should check them out. Each one is made of soft, distress leather, and within certain limits, designed by the purchaser. The Indy is 10.3 x 12.0 x 1.0-in. It weighs 17 ounces. There’s a shoulder strap that is adjustable. There are pockets on the outsides and inside.

There is a special pocket lined with scratch-free Ultrasuede for the iPhone and a zippered outside pocket designed to hold wallets and other items that need to be zipped away. The inside of all Waterfield bags is lined in gold color to make it easier to find things. The Indy has two small inside pockets.
The Indy, which has an MSRP of US$179.00, is available in brown or black with black matte or shiny nickel hardware. The purchaser choses which finish they want. The trim colors are muted and work with either color bag. The bag is designed to give many years of service.

Using the product
The first thing I noticed about this bag was how very soft and pliable it is. The next was how much I could put in it. My iPad in its case, a charger, 8 x 11.5-in thin notebook, my iPhone, my glasses case, ear buds, my wallet, coins, key ring, and a box of Tylenol. Because there are pockets on both the front and back as well as inside the case, the bag did not bulge when filled with all my stuff.
To wear this bag with panache one should be tall and it looks particularly good on men. When I put it on my 5 foot, 3 inch self it hung to my knees and was overwhelming. Fortunately for me, I have a Waterfield bag that works just perfectly fine.
