WaterField Designs Muzetto Outback and SleeveCase for Microsoft Surface Pro (review)

Summary: For the last couple of weeks, I have been using the Muzetto Outback vertical messenger bag to carry a much lighter load during my daily commute and am loving the experience.

  • One classy, stylish bag

    This is a MUCH lighter load than the heavy backpack I have been carrying around.

  • Ultimate SleeveCase for Microsoft Surface

    I have used various SleeveCases in the past with ebook readers and laptops. Those all had the lead indium bottom trim, and this time Waterfield Designs sent along a MS Surface SleeveCase with brown leather trim.

    There are a number of different sizes available to best fit your device and if you are not sure which one is best, just email them and they will work to make sure you order the proper case. To fit my Microsoft Surface Pro with Type Cover, they recommended the 44-28 and it fits perfectly.

    There are options for trim and shoulder straps. Indium is included with the leather choice priced $6 more. The Surface Pro SleeveCase is priced at $59. Shoulder straps vary from $5 to $22 and are completely optional. Since I intended to carry my Surface Pro in the SleeveCase in another bag I didn't need the shoulder strap.

  • Back view with pocket

    The current generation SleeveCase has a lot more front and back padding than I remember from the past. There is soft black material inside the compartment with that same soft material under the flap. The flap is secured with velcro and a heavy nylon strap backs up the center of the flap.

    There is a loop around the center of the trim piece that is helpful for pulling the SleeveCase off your Surface while you hold on to the Surface from within the compartment.
