MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Crossbody MacBook Briefcase, Tech Pocket and Gear Pouch From WaterField Designs

Spread the love

For this week’s giveaway, we’ve teamed up with WaterField Designs to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an awesome organizational setup for Apple devices that includes a Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief, Tech Pocket, and Gear Pouch.


The Hitch Crossbody Brief is a vertical briefcase that comes in either full ($259) or compact ($249) size options. The compact version of the Laptop Brief is designed to fit a MacBook Air or an iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard (or similarly sized devices), while the full is designed to fit devices similar in size to the 16-inch MacBook Pro, which is Apple’s largest notebook computer.


Available in either black ballistic or brown waxed canvas with full-grain leather accents, the Crossbody Brief is durable and designed to hold up well for years to come.


There are two built-in padded pockets lined with soft fabric to keep your devices safe, along with organizational pockets and a key hook to keep smaller accessories and devices organized. There’s a front pocket that’s meant to keep bulky items from bulging out, and the gold liner makes it easy to find items inside.


The Crossbody Brief can be worn as a crossbody bag as the name suggests, or held in the hand to serve as a vertical briefcase. The vertical construction is designed to evenly distribute weight to make it comfortable to carry, and when worn on the shoulder, there’s an adjustable Supreme Suspension Strap.


The bag is weather resistant and it includes YKK zippers to keep water out, and when used with a luggage set, it can be placed over the handle of a suitcase with the passthrough back pocket.



Along with the Hitch Crossbody Laptop Brief, WaterField’s Tech Pocket and Gear Pouch add-ons offer even more organizational options. The Gear Pouch, available in three sizes and multiple colors (starting at $39), is designed to keep all your cords, dongles, power adapters, and other small odds and ends together so they don’t get lost in your bag.


There are multiple internal pockets to keep things neatly organized, along with a zip outer pocket and a main middle compartment for larger accessories. The Gear Pouch’s compact design is meant to make it easy to fit inside other bags, and the three-quarter zipper lets you get to what you need fast.

The Tech Pocket, priced at $49, is similar to the Gear Pouch, but instead of a top zipper, there’s a magnetic closure for those who prefer an accessory bag that’s easier to get into.


Sized to hold dongles, adapters, earbuds, an iPhone, and more, the Tech Pocket is smaller and more compact. It has a soft, plush lining to keep your gear from getting scratched, and there’s a quick access zippered front pocket for things like keys.
