The Slim Solo. The handsome, compact Solo fits both the new 13" MacBook Air or an iPad Air with just a few other items. The look is minimal, adding only very few key items like a charger, iPhone, or wallet. An optional strap transforms it to a smart-looking over-the-shoulder bag that also looks great on its own.
Hey Gary: I was so impressed with the Outback Solo for iPad Air- - Size #23 for iPad Air naked or with Apple Smart Cover- -Shoulder Strap Adjustable I just received, I ordered one for my 13" MacBook. Great look. Love the rugged, functional understatement and quality of your products. Best,

"[T]he Outback Solo for iPad Air is another quality design from WaterField, made with the level of craftsmanship you've come to expect from them."

"This is a cool-looking bag no doubt, and the materials – canvas and leather – only get better as they get older"
"And as iPads are only likely to get smaller and thinner, it's a case that will actually be useful for years to come."
"Perfect for what it does, not suited for much else. It's a study in well-considered compromise. Also: Indiana frikkin' Jones!"

"Waterfield Designs is known for durable and stylish sleeves and bags, and the Outback Solo continues that tradition with an affordable design that will last for years."
Rating: 3-1/2 stars (out of 4 stars possible)
The iPad Air will get protection from scratches and dings this case, however if you were to cover it we would recommend the Apple Smart Cover, or a slippery case. The Grippy Cases are not ideal.
The magnetic closure keeps the flap securely fastened on the outer front of your bag.
The Waxed Canvas and leather are both water resistant and should keep the device inside dry should you find yourself without an umbrella in the rain. However, we do not recommend taking your Outback Solo for a swim.
