Staad Attaché for iPad Pro or Surface Pro 4

staadThe Staad Attaché from WaterField Designs is my current go-to bag for transporting my iPad Pro or my Surface Pro 4 when I want to travel light.

Attorney David Sparks wrote this review.  My bag is black ballistic and leather rather than his waxed canvas and leather, but otherwise, my experience is similar to his.

The Staad Attaché looks very professional. I’ve carried it into the boardroom, the courtroom, and the classroom.

The Staad Attaché’s inner sleeve easily holds my iPad Pro with an attached Apple Smart Keyboard. The inner sleeve also is large enough to hold instead my Surface Pro 4 with an attached TypeCover and an Incipio sleeve cover.

In addition to the ineer sleeve, the inside has a couple of small pockets which I use for my MiFi, a portable battery and a presentation remote. There’s an area between the pockets and the inner sleeve which is large enough to store my small bag of cables and adapters and the like. This area also could hold some 8 1/2″ x 11″ files or pads, though usually I put those in a pocket at the rear of the bag.  Also in the rear is a handle slip which you can slide over the handle of a larger rolling bag and carry the attaché on top of the rolling bag. The two zippers in the front actually are two sides of one large area in which I stash my phone and keys. Finally, the buckle is convenient to use but secure.

In addition to the top handle, there also is a ballistic strap which attaches to the D-rings at the top. Even stuffed, the bag feels surprisingly light, whether using the strap or the handle.

The Staad Attaché is a great bag if you are traveling light. If you are carrying multiple laptops or otherwise a large load, you have other choices.

Like most stuff from WaterField, the build quality is excellent. Also like most stuff from WaterField, the Staad Attaché isn’t cheap. But you do get what you pay for.
