San Francisco, California – WaterField Designs today introduces its long-anticipated backpack – The Staad. Designed to flow easily from causal to professional office environments, the Staad’s refined masculine look delivers an immediate fashion upgrade. Its stream-lined exterior and thoughtfully-organized interior snugly secure a Mac or commensurate laptop and an iPad or tablet plus accessories – all within a narrow profile. WaterField Designs has been designing and manufacturing innovative laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear in San Francisco since 1998.
The Staad’s slim tapered form keeps contents compact and optimizes capacity. A handsome World War II-era buckle – once used to instantly access ammunition – can be opened with a “quick flick.” Plush, padded interior pockets keep a laptop and tablet secure and the main compartment organized, while angled, zippered, side pockets stash small necessities like keys and an iPhone 5s. A quick-grab leather handle provides an additional carrying option. Neoprene cushioning and moisture-wicking material keep the wearer comfortable and dry.
“This backpack will kick your style up a notch,” explained Gary Waterfield, company founder. “We’ve finally found a design that works in the office as well as outside of work. No excessive straps dangling, no bulky outside pockets, just a clean, finished look. And it holds your laptop and tablet securely, along with power cords and more for those all-day meetings.”
