WaterField Unveils the Outback Duo, a Minimalist Dual-Device Laptop Bag

Workers are increasingly using multiple computers simultaneously as they meet via Zoom™ from one and work from another. The compact WaterField Outback Duo includes two padded compartments for two laptops, or for a laptop and a tablet, all in one ultra-slim, lightweight laptop bag.

"The Outback Duo is super lightweight, and compact for when you only need the basics, but the basics include two devices. It holds more than you’d think, in spite of its super-slim profile."

WaterField Designs, a leading San Francisco manufacturer of custom-fitted laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for digital gear, introduces the compact Outback Duo—a minimalist laptop brief with dual padded compartments to protect two laptops or a laptop and a tablet with additional space for daily work necessities. Now more than ever people carry more than one device at all times — one to Zoom™ and one to take notes, check documents, or draw prototypes. With a premium leather flap and in-case charging capability, the ultra-slim Outback Duo laptop bag keeps both devices protected and within reach whether working from home or safely at the office.

“Now that I’m back in the office, I need my laptop for digital team meetings, my phone for communicating with employees working from home, and my iPad for sketching out design ideas,” said company owner Gary Waterfield. “The Outback Duo carries all three along with my power bricks and cords, plus my personal basics, all while staying amazingly compact, lightweight, and comfortable to carry.”


  • Two laptop compartments encased by impact-resistant foam are lined with plush, no-scratch fabric
  • Clever laptop compartment cut-outs allow for in-case laptop charging
  • Gold, water-resistant liner lights up interior for increased visibility
  • Waterproof zipper secures main compartment and maintains clean lines
  • Expandable front pocket—inspired by old-world saddles—closes with full-grain, double-layer, leather flap and strong self-finding magnet
  • Front pocket includes interior organization pockets for pens, phone, and wallet
  • Three carry options: comfortable leather-lined handles, a detachable suspension shoulder strap, and a wheeled suitcase passthrough
  • Two bag-size options protect dual laptops up to 14-inch MacBook Pro or up to 16-inch MacBook Pro dimensions
  • Choice of rugged, tan waxed canvas or sturdy, black ballistic nylon coupled with sumptuous full-grain, dual-layer leather flap creates an eye-catching, professional look
