Waterfield Designs Gear Bags and Notebook Sleeves - Waterfield Designs Gear Bags and Notebook Sleeves

'Ballistic Nylon' just rolls off the tongue so nicely, and makes even the simplest of objects appear exotic. Take for example the bags we use to carry around cables, power adapters, and things of this nature. Sure, they could be packed away in a Ziplock bag, but what fun would that be? To be realistic, most people don't pay all that much attention to the bags we use to lug around a adapter cables, ac/adaptors or for that matter even a digital camera or notebook. Most of the time we simply use whichever carry case was thrown in with the equipment when we bought it - typically made from vinyl, nylon or pleather, and without much credence towards appearance, comfort or long term durability and protection of the gear inside. There are of course cases which are built like a tank, and do a great job, but in my experience they are few and far between. Now, say hello to Ballistic Nylon, Neoprene and engineered textiles like Indium. Waterfield Designs, a company based in San Francisco originally caught my attention three years ago after reading a short article on them in ID, and today we are going to examine a few more articles of interest from this company. Each the three bags below are meant to compliment the small things they carry - whether it be a bundle of adaptor wires, a notebook or even a digital camera. To date, the Cargo Bag I first read about in ID has logged more air miles than most of my other luggage, outlasted at least one notebook altogether, and has served me well by lugging around the mass of paper and paraphernalia I haul around each day. Aside from some scratches on the aircraft seat buckle, the bag has held out flawlessly with nary a rip, squeak, or torn thread. Today we're looking at three new types Waterfield Design bags; one designed for hauling gear, the next for protecting fragile digital cameras, and the last which is neoprene padded sleeve for notebooks.
