Priced at $449, the Laptop Briefcase from WaterField Designs fits all of Apple's MacBook models, including the new 16-inch MacBook Pro that came out in October.

The briefcase is made from full grain American Bison (black) or full grain cowhide (brown), both available at the same price point. The bison version has a pebbled texture that makes each bag unique, while the cowhide version will develop a unique patina and wear pattern over time. These bags are designed to last for many years and have been built to be tough, functional, and minimalist.

According to WaterField Designs, the bison leather is thicker, more durable, and stronger than standard leather. Full-grain cowhide leather has a tighter grain that's more resistant to moisture, while also being strong and durable.

Laden with pockets and storage space, the briefcase can hold not only your MacBook, but also an iPad and all of your necessary accessories. There's a padded laptop compartment, a padded tablet compartment, and a deep pocket at the front for easy access to items you need on hand.

There are also multiple pockets for organization, an easy access key fob, and a pass through slot at the back for attaching it to luggage. The bag can also be carried using the leather handles or the removable shoulder strap. The whole thing is lined with a gold fabric that's meant to make it easy to find the interior contents, and your devices are protected with water resistant zippers.

I've owned many of their products over the years. I've never owned a full leather item from them, just the leather and canvas combinations. I will say the pebbled grain one looks very good to me.

The quality and construction of the products I own/have owned is very good. I used them daily for several years.

Their customer service has been excellent. Usually pre-sale questions. Though recently one of their pull tag metal end studs fell off. I got an immediate response to an email, and a replacement and a spare within a couple of days.

Maybe their style might seem too casual for some?

I love the well thought out compartments, as well as the bright yellow interiors, that make finding stuff in the bag easy. Also made in USA!

I have bought a PS Vita and Nintendo Switch 3DS leather cases from Waterfield in the past. It lasted many, many years (ended up giving it to a relative still in great shape along with the system) and the leather aged beautifully over time. This brown bag reminds me of it, would really be nice to own it. :)
