WaterField Designs modernizes The Cargo laptop bag

Published On April 5, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | Accessories

Laptop bags aren’t gaming devices, of course, but they do keep one our key gaming systems safe and functional. You don’t want it to look like it’s been through Ardennes Assault when you’re playing Ardennes Assault.

And this is why we’re letting you know WaterField Designs is celebrating its 18th year in business with an update to its signature bag from 1998: The Cargo. Designed by former bicycle messenger and owner, Gary Waterfield, as a messenger-briefcase hybrid, the Cargo is still one WaterField’s top sellers.

But a lot has changed since 1998, so—in addition to the expected naturally-tanned, lightly treated leather—the modernized Cargo incorporates 18 years of customer feedback to improve upon its functionality and handsome looks with:

  • A padded laptop compartment
  • A padded iPad compartment
  • Waterproof zippers
  • A rolling suitcase slot
  • Easy-access phone pocket
  • A seamless leather flap
  • A new ideal size

So, room for your MacBook (11″ Air to 15″ Pro Retina), iPad (mini to Pro) and iPhone…that’s pretty much everything, right? All your gaming systems are right there, and will remain well-protected while you’re doing whatever it is bicycle messengers do these days. I just keep thinking of that scene from Spider-Man 2 where Peter Parker has to deliver those pizzas in eight minutes. This video may give you some ideas for more practical uses:

The Cargo can be ordered now for $349, with shipments to start on April 14th. For more information, visit www.sfbags.com.

is greatly looking forward to the day when he no longer cares about Apple, games, and gaming technology. But right now he does, and he loves to talk about them, just as he’s been doing on the web since 1998. He can otherwise be spotted as that one guy in Ohio wearing a Minnesota North Stars hockey sweater. Kirk has a wife and three kids, and is a generally happy fellow.
