Reading this forum I recently discovered Waterfield and, since I am looking for a new bag to carry around my iPad Pro 11, their Muzetto is checking almost every box on my wishlist (https://www.sfbags.com/collections/ipad-pro-sleeves-and-bags/products/field-muzetto?tab=Product_Info#).
I am more oriented towards the Field Muzetto, because I like the minor weight compared to the leather Muzetto and the lowest price is also a factor, especially after the onorous taxes for having it shipped here in Italy.
Comparing the Field Muzetto with the leather one I also noticed is slightly smaller, so I wonder if anyone here is using it with the Pro 11 + Smart Keyboard Folio and can confirm they fit well inside the padded compartment.
I would also love to hear any feedback about Waterfield products and any other good (and similar) alternatives!

Waterfield Designs products are first rate! I have been using their Bolt Briefcase since 2015. Very well made, well designed and rugged. I've been eyeing up the new Tech Folio and the Tech Sling. Also great customer service. Just a customer.

I've been using the Field Muzetto (small) with the original 12.9 ipad pro, so yes, I can confirm your 11" will definitely fit. Its a great bag if you can deal with the one minor gripe I have with it. The flap doesn't have any way to be secured, and as a consequence it does not have a handle as well. This makes it slightly awkward taking off the bag and placing it in the trunk of my car. You have to grab it by the body or by the shoulder strap which can be awkward.

If I could do it all over again, I would get the Bold Crossbody. They didn't have this product several years ago when I bought the Field Muzetto.

I'm a huge fan of their products. I have the Bolt Backpack, and a few of their pouches as well. Great stuff!

You'll love Waterfield, no matter what bag you buy. (And if you don't, they have a nice return policy!)

I looked very closely at the Muzetto before I bought my bag, but I needed something that would fit both my MBP and iPad, and I was looking specifically for a laptop bag. I love the looks of Muzetto, though. I was looking for a leather bag, but both versions look great. From what I've read, the Field Muzetto is more lightweight, so if that's important to you, then you might want to think about that. itcrashed mentioned the biggest problem I've read about the bag, which is the flap.

If you go to their website during the day, a pop-up will often come up; there is someone on the other end. They also will answer phone calls (or so I hear.)

MacRumors is full of Waterfield carriers; my other suggestion would be to do a search of the forums. You should find quite a few WF comments.

About the flap, they have recently embedded two magnets in it to secure when closed, I wrote them yesterday for have a confirmation, but is also in the specification in the product page.

EDIT: also the Crossbody Bolt looks brillant, I am really digging the black ballistic version.

Have you checked out the collection on High On Leather? I got the ipad bag from their 1 year back and so far, its a great purchase in this cheap price.
