There are a lot of things I love that Waterfield makes but this bag is not one of them. I'm not sure what their design team was thinking but it just looks too bulky. Great in depth review regardless. Hope all is going well Chase!
I could not sit in a cafe with a roost, keyboard and mouse. I hate the idea of them thinking I've moved in for the day. I use a Surface Pro 4 which is lucky to get 2 hours of battery life so I can never work in a cafe for the whole day anyway.
I remember in a previous video you mentioned that you do a podcast and carry podcasting equipment around with you. What sort of pouch or pouches do you recommend for carrying microphones safely? There are a lot of boring looking way to bulky cases that I've found, but I wonder if you've seen something that really worked or had any recommendations.
You need to air out your little girls room if she walks in there she will be knocked over from all those f-bombs and ball bags respectfully and not trying to tell you how to run your family you know F that Im going to get some weed trail mix and a ball bag great video lol
I'm having a few strong reactions to this video... Spectacularly entertaining as always. As for the bag, I'm on the fence as to whether it's the perfect balance of functional and professional, or if it looks like somebody just slapped some leather over the front of a Briggs & Riley bag despite leather and 1680D being a weird-looking combo. Does it look odd in person or does it work?
Secondly, I've been wondering about this for a while but never got around to asking: Chase, what's your take on Tumi? Nice bags? Overpriced junk? Douchemarkers? I haven't formed a solid opinion yet.
I hear the sentiment of it looks weird. This is really, to my aesthetic eye, a perfect bag for boomers. Not my style, but what it does I think it does so well.
Every tumi bag I’ve investigated was made REAL well.
I can confirm that your anker power bank is one of the best bang for buck power banks. You can get more fancy ones with more features and stuff, but for a normal person (not dongle patrol) yours is great. Anker is one of the best/most reliable power bank companies.
Your philosophical stuff really resonates with me. I get that almost constant oppressive feeling that washes over me multiple times a week where I just feel like I’m not part of anything but just keeping it all together to survive. And I got the career, house, kids, wife, pursuing “more” money and education...blah blah.. I look forward to your other contributions. You seem like a great dude. Keep it up.
I'm sitting here in my office (an ad agency in Newfoundland, Canada). Nobody is in here, and I'm laughing my ass off at the Lebowski stuff and ball pouches. Great start to the week, man. Thanks for that. (Great review, too.)
I preordered this bag but ultimately canceled my preorder because I didn’t like how bulky and thick it looks. I’m glad I did because it really does look too bulky for me. I ended up going with the Aer Day Pack and I love it! However if they make a slim version of this It would be an instant buy for me...
Your videos look so good, and we are currently looking for the right person to review our Backpack product, Could you please send your business email address to me, and then I will send our product information to you. Looking forward to your reply. Thanks. Contact me: [email protected]
LOL, they literally took a regular ballistic nylon backpack and glued a piece of leather to the front, I mean I can do that. I feel like they could have put a little more effort into this. This looks half-assed, I'd rather just have it all ballistic nylon.
Never thought I could watch a man talk about a backpack for 40 minutes, but you make it way too easy
edit: I wish I could like this video twice for the quote "I'm not a businessman, I'm a business, man!"
This bag....it’s ugly but what is so striking is the old combo of “been there done that” ballistic nylon and hipster leather. Then the loud orange inside....sigh, this bag is like a butter face with a slamming body.
Nope - I am not a fan either. I think it is way to bulky looking for its intended purpose and I rather dislike the leather pieces that seem to suggest that you really wanted a full leather bag but could only afford a nylon bag with a leather piece glued to the front. More importantly though, I really dislike the access to the main compartment. Seems very awkward and cumbersome to me. I do appreciate Chase's reviews as they actually speak to the materials and the feel of the bag - something that is a bit difficult to do remotely. I also appreciate that he has opinions on things even if I don't agree with him on a lot of things. Finally, I really appreciate reviews that are sufficiently detailed (and high on entertainment value) that I can get a real sense of the bags looks, functions and how I might choose (or not choose) to use it. Back to your original question. You are not alone - I think the bag is horrific too.
Fun review, thanks. I like the architecture, organization (I have a thing for side pockets), and the fact that it stands up.
I'm less thrilled by the leather, though. It seems tacked on, rather than "this function can only be served by a leather panel." The leather grab handle makes more sense, because it would feel better than Cordura.
Keep on keepin' on!
It’s a reference to a scene in *The Big Lebowski*, my favorite part of his reviews. I've moved away from needing so much dedicated organization in my carry, but I'm still a little bummed when a bag doesn't actually have a place for your business papers, man.
Chase, I love the Waterfield Designs bags and cases, they make wonderful stuff. But I struggle with this bag, it’s just too thick and a bit too bulbous. My favorite look for a backpack with a suit is a tote bag or briefcase. My second favorite backpack look with a suit is a sleek, smaller form factor bag, it’s going to hold some lovely and expensive thin laptop or tablet-keyboard thing (MAC/iOS or W10). It’s going to hold a really nice notebook/agenda and a few pens. And a pair of NC headphones from the usual suspects, probably a NY Times or Wall Street Journal. Everything else goes in the roller bag or a beautiful duffle.
I’d not wear this with a suit or, as a startup entrepreneur, a blazer over jeans.
BTW, I have a Roost, awesome tool for the mobile worker.
The zippers should still say YKK without the YKK pulls, it will say on the side or bottom, recommendation for a good water bottle- get yourself a zojirushi. Just ordered a Mission Workshop internal tool roll for my my electronics/wires and other shit pouch....Damn I'm all over the place with this shit right? taking some meds now...peace out brah.
you can't take backpacks into professional environments, maybe it works for film editors based out of Hamburg, Germany, but anyone else will go into the meeting room and be immediately pegged as a temp or an intern. Which isn't to say they wont be jealous of your storage places for papers... business papers, but they will think your not being serious.
eBags makes a backpack that can be converted into a briefcase looking type bag, looks great, I have the big one and the small one. If you're necessary and vital you can walk in the room with anything you want. Walk around Chicago and NYC, lots and lots of people with suits or business casual clothing and backpacks on.
Yeah, I’ll argue this point. I see backpacks on suited guys every week in the airport, insurance, tech, healthcare, consulting, all of these industries a backpack is acceptable when traveling. Usually something from Tumi.
Wall Street? High finance? No.
Jupa Gómez I was considering the Peak Design ultimately I watched some videos of “real review” of the 20L. since I would not be using it just for photography, I felt I would work well with the peak. Side note, I went Boundary Supply Errant. But I personally like Peak’s style more than this bag. And if I “needed” a second bag I would buy the peak designs, from a place with a great return policy.
