WaterField is at it again with their custom, handmade designs and today announced the new VertiGo 2.0 laptop bag. What I really love about WaterField products is that they don’t look like your run-of-the-mill designs you would usually expect from utilitarian bags. The VertiGo 2.0 is made from high end materials like leather, ballistic nylon, and waxed canvas and holds everything securely with a combination of magnets and YKK zippers. Not only that, these bags are made to order and based on my experiences with their products, are made to be durable and withstand tons of abuse.
The WaterField VertiGo 2.0 is available in 3 sizes, and can be had in either Brown waxed canvas or black ballistic nylon. Prices start at $129. For more information about the new VertiGo 2.0, check out the full press release below and check out the official site here.
San Francisco, CA August 12, 2014 – WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital-minded professionals, announces the VertiGo 2.0 laptop bag. With its modern materials of waxed canvas, ballistic nylon and full-grain leather, its vertical weight distribution, and its intuitive design details, the VertiGo 2.0 serves as the quintessential bag for business, travel and casual use.
Every detail on the VeritGo 2.0 is carefully devised with ease of use, comfort and contemporary esthetics in mind. A large main compartment holds laptop sleeves, tablets or travel gear. Two interior open-topped pockets are raised off the bottom of the bag for both easy access and to vertically distribute the weight of bag contents. A hidden security magnet holds a front pocket snug to the bag. Therein, a self-locking zippered pocket keeps items like keys, wallet and tickets secure yet quickly accessible.
Customizable textile options address the style needs of any modern wardrobe. Users choose from a durable black ballistic nylon or ruggedly-elegant, tan, waxed canvas base. They can then add black or chocolate premium, naturally-tanned leather accents. An all-ballistic nylon or all-waxed canvas option satisfies sophisticated vegan consumers. Three size options fit tablets, 13-inch and 15-inch laptops respectively.
“I love how comfortable the VertiGo is and that it keeps all my gear so easily accessible,” explained owner Gary Waterfield. “The vertical design is unobtrusive and the adjustable shoulder strap is long enough to wear across my chest, messenger-style, or off one shoulder. The new handles are convenient for a quick-grab and go, and I can hide them in the front and back pockets when not in use.“
To keep laptops safe within the VertiGo 2.0 and other bags, WaterField offers the laptop SleeveCase in over 100 sizes. Another option—the Outback Sleeve—is available in four custom sizes for Apple laptops.
