WaterField Designs unveiled the Outback Duo today, a minimalist gadget bag that can fit multiple laptops or devices. The bag’s laptop compartments are impact resistant and lined with plush fabric to prevent scratches. The bag also features a waterproof zipper around the main compartment.

We’ve reviewed several WaterField Designs products in the past, such as the Tech Folio Plus, and came away impressed. The Tech Folio Plus earned high marks from our executive editor, Daniel Rubino, for its build quality, ample pockets, and great look. WaterField Designs seems to have emphasized the same qualities in the Outback Duo.

The Outback Duo features a water-resistant liner in the main pocket that helps you spot your tech quickly. It also has cut-outs inside that allow you to charge your devices while they’re in the bag. It features an expandable front pocket for chargers and other gadgets and an area between the two laptop pockets that can be used for a notebook.

You can carry the Outback Duo with its handles, detachable shoulder strap, or by attaching it to a wheeled suitcase. It’s available in waxed canvas or ballistic nylon with a chocolate leather top, or ballistic nylon with a black leather top.
