WaterField’s new San-Francisco Made Sutter Tech Sling brings a professional aesthetic to the sporty utility of a single-strap backpack. Designed to hold Apple’s new MacBook Air or iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, the ergonomic Sling rests comfortably on the back making it an ideal daypack for commuting or adventuring.

Thanks to extensive ergonomic testing, you’ll feel how nicely the bag sits against your back and how easily you can access your gear.

WaterField Designs, a San Francisco designer and manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, bags and device-specific cases, introduces the Sutter Tech Sling bag, a sophisticated one-strap backpack in two sizes with dedicated pockets to hold Apple’s new new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil, the new MacBook Air, or the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Designed for comfort and easy accessibility, the meticulously-crafted Sutter Tech Sling combines the utility of a sling with a professional aesthetic — a smart choice for creative professionals, commuters and travelers. Sutter Sling orders through November 9 will include a complimentary new WaterField Stylus Pencil Case, a plushly-padded accessory case with a dedicated Apple Pencil pocket.

“The lifestyle of a 21st-century creative professional calls for a comfortable, agile bag with a refined look,” explained company owner Gary Waterfield. “When we set out to design a Sling that creatives could carry for work, commuting, and traveling, we focused on comfort and function. Thanks to extensive ergonomic testing, you’ll feel how nicely the bag sits against your back and how easily you can access your gear.”

The Sutter Tech Sling is intentionally designed with features for easy-access and comfort:

  • While remaining on one shoulder, the bag easily shifts to the front, allowing quick access to items in the exterior pocket from either side.
  • A unique swivel strap attachment grants 180-degree rotation so the bag rests flat against the body whether worn over one shoulder or crossbody.
  • A wide shoulder strap with a built-in, moveable shoulder pad distributes weight evenly.
  • A one-handed cam lock buckle lets users adjust how the bag rests against their body without removing the bag.
  • The thoughtfully-placed iPad compartment keeps the back of the bag comfortably flat.
  • Rear mesh padding enhances airflow and cushioning.
  • Double, waterproof zippers enable entry to the main compartment from either side.
  • A gold, water-resistant liner lights up the interior of the bag for increased visibility.
  • An interior key fob attachment keeps keys quickly findable.

Available in two sizes and a choice of premium materials, the Sutter Tech Sling remains compact even when fully packed. A tailor-fitted, padded laptop/tablet compartment in the Standard size holds: the new Apple 11-inch iPad Pro or the Surface Pro 6, and the Full-size Sling holds: the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro, MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, or Surface Laptop 2. Three pen pockets — for the Apple Pencil and ballpoints — and an open-topped pocket, help keep gear organized inside leaving ample interior space for a water bottle, notebook, wallet, and more. An exterior pocket, hidden behind the leather panel, is protected from the elements with inset waterproof zippers and keeps items like a phone, train tickets, and mints within quick reach.

Ideal for creative techies, WaterField’s new Stylus Pencil Case is a plushly-padded waxed canvas or ballistic nylon pencil pouch with a dedicated Apple Pencil compartment and an interior pocket for extra tips or other accessories. The Stylus Pencil Case and the Sutter Tech Sling join a wide range of WaterField iPad bags and accessories, including a variety of iPad sleeves, the iPad Pro Gear Case, and the Leather Case for the Apple Pencil.
