WaterField Designs unveils the refreshed Outback Solo 2.0, a handsome waxed canvas and leather case available in custom sizes for the New Microsoft Surface Pro and soon for Macbook laptops. With a padded laptop compartment and expandable accessory pockets, the Solo packs everything a professional needs for a light day’s work while complimenting the sleek, compact form of the Surface Pro hybrid.

The Outback Solo 2.0—minimalist tablet and laptop bag

The Outback Solo 2.0

To complement the thin profile of the New Surface Pro, this version of the Solo has a sleeker look, yet can hold more accessories.

WaterField Designs, a leading San Francisco manufacturer of custom-fitted laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, introduces the Outback Solo 2.0 — a refresh of the company’s popular minimalist laptop bag, now with additional storage capacity and a similarly light and compact form. The new Solo 2.0 is custom-sized for Microsoft’s New Surface Pro, and sizes for most MacBooks will soon follow. The meticulously-crafted waxed canvas and premium leather minimalist laptop case holds a computer or tablet and all accessories needed for a light day at the office or café.

"To complement the thin profile of the New Surface Pro, this version of the Solo has a sleeker look yet can hold more accessories,” noted Gary Waterfield, company founder. “Your phone, power block, and cables can all fit in this compact carry case. I can tuck the Solo under my arm when I dash out for a quick cup of coffee, or with the strap, wear it over my shoulder for longer periods.”

The rugged and compact Outback Solo cradles the New Surface Pro with two layers of protection — high-grade neoprene enveloped in highly water-resistant, waxed canvas. The full-grain, naturally-tanned leather flap closes firmly with an invisible magnet allowing for work-friendly silent access. Two pleated front pockets expand to hold a wallet, keys, adapter, cords, Surface Dial and other small necessities, and include two dedicated pockets within — one for a Samsung S8 series or similarly-sized phone and one for the Surface Pencil. When not filled to capacity, these front pockets remain flat. A new pull tab allows users to easily remove the computer from the case. A removable shoulder strap allows the bag to be worn crossbody or off one shoulder, or without the strap as a case, tossed under an arm or into another bag.

In addition to the Outback Solo, WaterField Designs offers an array of custom-fitted Microsoft and MacBook cases and sleeves—the SleeveCase and the Travel Express, and for Macs only: the Maxwell Sleeve and Suede Jacket.
