WaterField Unveils Lightweight Vitesse Duffel with Maximum Versatility, American-Made

WaterField Designs, an innovative maker of custom laptop sleeves, and designer bags, and cases for digital gear, introduces the durable yet lightweight Vitesse Duffel—for recreation, travel or office use. Constructed from navy, brown or grey waxed canvas with premium leather handles, the versatile Vitesse can be overstuffed with gear or folded and carried in another bag for later use. Spacious inside, the refined Vitesse Duffel is travel-ready—it complies with international carry-on regulations and fits under an airline seat or in the overhead bin.

Crafted from rugged but lightweight waxed canvas, the Vitesse Duffel includes a roomy main compartment with two hanging zippered pockets for valuables; a front leather-tab-closed pocket for easy access items; and reinforced premium leather handles with non-slip undersides. The handles are long enough to wear over a shoulder and short enough to remain off the ground when carried. A removable simple shoulder strap lets users carry the duffel cross-body for heavier loads. The distressed waxed canvas material and the leather details get more and more attractive over time. The Duffel’s flat bottom and large zippered opening make it easy to pack for overnight business, a weekend away or an evening at the gym.

“Inspired by the standard WWI soldier bag in both aesthetic and construction—simple but rugged—we upgraded the design with reinforced handles and additional pockets for modern day use,” shared Gary Waterfield, company founder. “It’s so versatile—in addition to the gym, I take it on photo shoots, weekend excursions and even to the office.”

This new Duffel joins our Cycling Musette and Messenger Bag to round out our Vitesse line. Each is ideal for commuting whether by car, bike or train. All WaterField Designs products are designed and manufactured in San Francisco.
