The new Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief by WaterField Designs in San Francisco is a sleek yet spacious vertical laptop/tablet bag that can be comfortably worn crossbody or off-shoulder, carried like a vertical briefcase, or attached to a wheeled suitcase. It’s designed with tech professionals in mind, with two internal padded compartments to fit both a MacBook Pro and the new iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard.
In addition to carrying two big devices — which are accessible from either side — the bag also fits your everyday necessities with open-topped organizational pockets, pen slots, and a tethered key hook that are all easy to access when you need them.
The inside is lined with a golden rip-stop material to help you quickly spot whatever you need:
The bag comes in two sizes — Compact ($249) or Full ($259) — and in one of four total colorways: Brown Waxed Canvas with “Chocolate” or “Grizzly” full-grain leather trim, or Black 1050 Denier Ballistic with either Black or “Chocolate” full-grain leather trim.
