July 7, 2015 in Cases and Bags (E)
[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital-minded professionals, today is delighted to announce the Vitesse Messenger, a classic cycling messenger bag streamlined for multi-functional use. As more commuters take advantage of bike-friendly cities' expanded bike lanes and bike-share programs, WaterField introduces a messenger bag ideal for shifting from bike commuting to professional office environments. The lightweight, comfortable Vitesse Messenger combines beautiful water-resistant waxed canvas and naturally-tanned chocolate leather.
"This is the ideal messenger bag for your everyday life," explains owner Gary WaterField. "Whether you're cycling or driving to work, traveling, or just walking around town, the Vitesse Messenger - with its MacBook laptop pocket and waterproof zippers - is flexible enough to meet your needs in any setting. It can expand or contract to whatever amount of gear you carry, and you can dress it up or down for either work or play."
The water-resistant waxed canvas Vitesse Messenger is a classic bicycle courier bag, ideal for bike commuters and fashion-conscious professionals. Lighter than the standard messenger bag, the Vitesse includes just the essentials - a dedicated internal pocket to hold up to a 15-inch Mac laptop in a sleeve, three hand-deep pockets for smaller items, and waterproof zippered front pockets with a hidden Ultrasuede(R) phone pouch big enough for an iPhone 6+.
The waxed canvas flap secures with adjustable leather tabs and black metal studs. Worn cross body, the bag rests on the back leaving hands free. Front pockets are easy to access without having to lift the flap. WaterField offers an optional cross strap for additional stability when cycling. The earthy colors - brown, burgundy or navy waxed-canvas - look great at work or on a day around town.
To keep laptops or tablets safe within the Vitesse Messenger, WaterField offers the laptop SleeveCase, and the Ultimate SleeveCase and Outback Slip in custom sizes for iPads and other popular tablets. The Vitesse Messenger joins the smaller Vitesse Cycling Musette, the Rapide Saddlebag and the Cycling Ride Pouch - a jersey-pocket-sized case for an iPhone, wallet contents and a bike tool emergency kit - in its cycling line up.
