When I got my iPad one of the first high-end bags for carrying that I got to review was the Waterfield Muzetto. I had wanted one ever since I had read Judie’s review of the laptop version of the bag. Her conclusion at the time:

I have always been a fan of Vertical bags, in fact one of my favorite purses is the Louis Vuitton Musette, which this bag’s style greatly resembles. I really enjoyed carrying the Muzetto when I traveled to Seattle, and perhaps even more than that — I enjoyed all the comments I got from the other attendees who absolutely loved it, and that stranger at the airport. At least one of the Mobius attendees ordered his own after seeing mine, which is high praise when dealing with a bunch of jaded gadget reviewers.

If you want a bag that is big enough to carry the necessities when carrying your computer — but not too big and bulky, one that can be used as a day bag on its own when you aren’t carrying a laptop, the Waterfield Muzetto is a wonderful option which should perform well and last for ages.

Fact is, whatever size you choose, the bag is gorgeous. It is made from the highest quality materials, it has the build and style that Waterfield is known for and it looks and feel fantastic. It has been one of my favorite bags ever since my iPad became my constant companion.


Well now Waterfield has gone and done it again. This time they have taken all the style and luxury of the Muzetto and made it in colors that are more befitting a man. The new Waterfield Muzetto Man Bag is described by the company this way.

For the refined male, the Muzetto™ in sleek black leather is now available for pre-order;
Five sizes for laptop, netbook, iPad & more; cell phone pocket for Verizon iPhone and others…

They go on…

Available just in time to house the new tablets, notebooks and gadgets announced at the 2011 Computer Electronic Show (CES) and Macworld, the Muzetto™ is available now for pre-order at sfbags.com. This fashionable bag for men boasts luxurious, naturally-tanned, black leather with a choice of six accent colors and five sizes. All WaterField Designs bags are made in San Francisco.

The Muzetto’s every detail is engineered with style and functionality in mind. This hip, leather, vertical bag includes one main compartment, an under-flap pocket, a zippered interior pocket for extra security, and a back pocket—ample options for men to designate a place for each item they carry. An adjustable strap allows users to wear the Muzetto™ across the chest or hanging from one shoulder. To reduce shoulder and back fatigue, a removable, shoulder pad with a grippy underside keeps the strap firmly in place. A gold liner lights up the interior making contents easy to differentiate. The flap length and angled sides highlight the Muzetto’s svelte look.

I love mine but this black color, and the availability of one that is perfectly sized for my 11″ MacBook Air… Well let’s just say this bag just made it onto my short list for the first half of 2011.

The Muzetto is available in five sizes: The Personal ($179), The Portable ($199), and the 11-inch ($219), the 13-inch ($239) and the 15-inch ($259) models and is available in black or brown high-quality leather with color accents in: black, copper, pine, grass, flame, or pearl.

It can be pre-ordered from the WaterField Website.
