WaterField Vitesse Bag Upgrades: Full-Grain Leather, Tech-Savvy Buckles

San Francisco, California - WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for Apple enthusiasts, announces stylish and functional updates to its popular Vitesse Messenger Bag and Musette. In addition to navy and brown waxed canvas options, WaterField's cycling-inspired Vitesse Musette is now available in sumptuous walnut or grizzly full-grain leather with a beautiful waxed canvas liner. Both the Messenger Bag and Musette now sport adjustable paragliding-inspired buckles to hold the bag's flap in place.

"The Vitesse is beautiful in its simplicity "just throw in your gear, put the bag on, and you've got the perfect messenger bag for heading into the office or a cafe to work, or for traveling the world," said company owner Gary Waterfield. "I use it to carry my MacBook Pro or iPad in one of our SleeveCases, my iPhone in the dedicated scratch-free iPhone pocket, and all my cords and personal gear. They're just so flexible in any setting, especially with the addition of the super-classy new leather Musette choices."

The Vitesse Messenger and Musette reflect owner Gary Waterfield's love of cycling and his years as a Boston bicycle messenger and General Manager of a mountain bike company. Waterfield retained the straightforward design and lightweight convenience of the classic cycling bags " the cycling race musette and the bicycle messenger bag " and added features to enhance durability, comfort, and utility for digital professionals.

New paragliding-style buckles attach to adjustable tabs to secure the canvas or leather flap. These modern buckles open easily with one hand and close with a gratifying click. A new leather top handle facilitates a quick grab from a car seat or overhead rack.

An easily adjustable nylon strap is sewn at an angle for comfort; it lies flat against a wearer's side when worn as a shoulder bag and flat against the back when worn as a crossbody bag. Like the classic bike musette and messenger bags, the Vitesse bags have one large main compartment but add interior pockets and extra space for both small personal items and for larger gear "lunch, books, a tablet or laptop in a sleeve (not included), and a light jacket.

The full-sized Vitesse Messenger features additional pockets: one in the interior to stow a MacBook Pro or iPad within a protective sleeve (not included), and one large exterior pocket accessible from either side through waterproof zippers that includes a scratch-free iPhone pocket inside.

To keep Macbooks or iPads protected within the Messenger or Musette (or inside other bags), WaterField offers the laptop SleeveCase, Dash Sleeve, and Vero Leather Laptop Sleeve in custom-fitted sizes for all current Apple laptops and tablets.
