The WaterField Tech Folio and Tech Folio Plus were born out of WaterField’s unique customer-driven, crowdsourced design process. (Details about the project here: )
The Tech Folio Plus is a premium gear organizer aimed to protect electronic accessories and a tablet that IT consultants and specialists in their fields carry with them every day. The Plus opens like a book, and its unique pocket storage system holds both bulky and slim items in an efficient, easy-to-spot fashion.
The Folio Plus opens like a book via smooth-gliding waterproof zippers. Inside, a multitude of stretch mesh pockets allows users to quickly and easily spot USB cords, dongles, adapters, earbuds, SD cards, flash drives, a headset, a power supply, and more. Cords can be bunched and easily inserted into the pockets — a significant time saver as there is no need to perfectly coil and strap them in. Two soft, open-topped pockets hold and protect a hard drive and backup battery or other bulkier items including small foldable headphones. Behind one panel of pockets is a padded tablet compartment that fits up to a 12.9-inch iPad.
The front of this new gear organizer sports a premium, full-grain leather flap that lends it a professional look. Rounded waterproof zippers around the flap open to reveal quick-access pockets for a smartphone, the Apple Pencil or Surface Pen, ballpoints, and other frequently-used items. Inside, WaterField’s distinctive gold liner brightens the interior, making items easy to spot. A carry handle and D-rings to attach to an optional shoulder strap allow the case to be used on its own as a small satchel or inserted into the WaterField Bolt backpack or another bag. The Plus is available in sturdy waxed canvas and chocolate full-grain leather for a sporty look, or black ballistic nylon and black full-grain leather for a more classic look.
WaterField designed the Tech Folio Plus using its unique customer-collaboration process that results in highly-functional products specifically tailored to address customer needs. After analyzing survey data gathered from hundreds of customers, the company identified the need for three unique cases. It then began to design prototypes, while continuing to gather feedback and to provide project participants with design updates. The resulting Tech Folio Plus — WaterField’s third gear case unveiled this month — incorporates details that reflect how people interact with the product on a daily basis.
