Made in Waterfields' San Francisco
sewing shop, the leather Muzetto horizontal notebook bag is available in five
different sizes, two different leathers (black or brown) and with six different
accent colours. PCSTATS is looking at the middle-sized 11" Muzetto bag today,
it's outside dimensions are roughly 13" x 10.5" x 2.75" in size. Gravity holds

With the main flap flipped up, the Muzetto's main and padded front outer pockets
are visible. The main pocket is internally about 11" x 9.5" x 2" in size. The
padded, front outer pocket is 9.5" x 7" in size and has a smaller 5.75" x 4.5"
mini pocket for slipping a phone or business cards into.

The Muzetto's rear pouch is accessible when the rest of the bag is closed up
so it's handy for slipping in a magazine or some papers while on the go. The
rear pouch measures 11" x 9.5" internally.

Looking at the Muzetto from the side reveals the very minimalist design approach Waterfield took with this bag. From tip
to toe, it's about 13.5" across.
The 1.5" brown webbing is attached to D-rings on either side of the bag
with the most unobtrusive of hardware.
Looking a the Muzetto from the top-front all that's
visible is the large monolithic oiled leather flap. From side to side the
bag is 10.5" across.
From the top-rear view, the back pouch is visible. The rear of the Muzetto
bag uses a slightly different leather which is smoother and better suited to
rubbing up against ones' clothing.
The bottom of the bag is made from the same oiled leather used on the sides and front
so it should wear nicely with time. Small scuffs in the leather can usually be
rubbed out with a little effort. To keep the leather in good condition,
Waterfield recommend leather conditioners like Lexol.
Next, PCSTATS will look at some of the details of this
vertical notebook bag and then we'll show you what it looks like on an actual
person so you can get a sense for it.
