Bags for small machines

I made a video about fitting the iPad and the new 11-inch MacBook Air into bags from Waterfield.


MacBook Air 11-inch in Waterfield bags from Eolake Stobblehouse on Vimeo.
It fits in the Waterfield (SFbags.com) iPad Wallet, and in the 10-inch Muzetto bag, even with the thickest sleeve case.
This video was made when staff at Waterfield Design asked for a photo of how the 11-incher could fit into the iPad Wallet and Muzetto. I thought a video would give a better feel for it.

They are wonderful bags, by the way, best "look and feel" I ever bought.
Same goes for the 11-inch Airbook: *Nothing* slow about it, full sized keeboard, high-rez screen, but only weighs one kilo. This is a portable like portables should always have been made.

Update:
In the Muzetto 10-inch bag, I can fit an iPad, the 11-inch Airbook in the "heavy duty" Sleeve, *and* an Apple Wireless Keyboard, all at the same time (plus a few small/thin items)!
In the iPad Wallet bag, I can fit the same, only without the big sleeve.

Darn it! I was hoping and waiting for you to stick the 'pad into the front pocket of that last bag to see if BOTH could fit in there. I wonder if it could still fit in there w/that other cover that you have on the 'Air.'

It didn't occur to me. But OK, I tested, update to post:

Cool, thanks! Very nice bags, alright! :-)

They *feel* good too. Even just the nylon bits are thicker and softer than what's normally used. (Prob stronger too.)

Nice! Should last through many revs of 'pads, I'll bet! ;-) (uh and they're made in San Francisco, as well! Neato! Dang! Just saw the price! Well...it otter stay together, nicely...for that price! ;-)

Yeah, admittedly it's a premium product.

But then it's hard to imagine how you'd wear one down.

Was trying to see if that was leather or just vinyl on those? I couldn't see anything about it on the site (could just be because I'm tired!). It looks like vinyl (and I know you mentioned that there were "vinyl bits.") Just read <a href="http://bit.ly/bfdezC>this</a>.

Lookit this: "All Muzettos temporarily SOLD OUT. Orders are prioritized on a first come, first served basis. Now taking pre-orders for an early December production run. Order now to reserve your place in line."

LUCKY YOU that you already got yerself yer Christmas presents! ;-)

Yes, the Muzetto seems to be very popular. They were also sold out when I ordered, but because I'm an especially treasured customer (I imagine), I was told about the black-leather version, which is not on the site. Lucky, because I normally prefer black to brown.
Muzetto is maybe 60% leather, whereas most of their bags just tend to have a bit of trim in leather.

I'm still not sure of their choice of no closing mechanism on the Muzetto. But maybe I'll get used to it, because I do admit it would not have the same "feel" if it had one. For some reason it would seem more utilitarian and less special, not sure why.

And it *is* special for some reason. I hug it in bed at night. ;-)

"Lucky, because I normally prefer black to brown."

Funny...I am usually the opposite! It's "the dirt" thing: it seems (to me, anyway) that black always seems to show dirt more obviously than brown; and...to me, brown always seems to be a "natural" neutral color that, seems to go better w/most things. :-) It used to pee my mom off 'cuz I would get mostly brown-colored shoes. :-D

"I'm still not sure of their choice of no closing mechanism on the Muzetto. But maybe I'll get used to it, because I do admit it would not have the same "feel" if it had one. For some reason it would seem more utilitarian and less special, not sure why."

Yes...I "get" BOTH of your points. I would be a little bothered about there not being a closing mechanism, myself. I think they could have included a plastic buckle or something like it on the inside.

"And it *is* special for some reason. I hug it in bed at night. ;-)"

You're FUNNY; BUT...I also "get" that, as well: I bought a leather purse, sometime ago, and...I'm not really a purse...person, but...for some odd reason, I "fell" completely "in love" w/this bag! lol! I used it for awhile and wanted to minimize so...it, now, lays next to me on my bed and I STILL REALLY LIKE it; I just don't want to schlepp it around, even though it's a "cross-over" handbag, I guess they're called. First time I invest in a really decent leather purse (Dare ya to go there & check out the men's bags! ;-) and...now it sits unused but I don't think that I could bear to part w/it I like it that much! lol!
