Old World Charm meets New World Protection. The vintage look of time-worn, waxed canvas plus the high-grade protection of neoprene, give the Outback Sleeve its relaxed, professional look. Sturdy leather enclosure snaps shut for a clean finish.
First off I'd like to say thanks for all your superb products! I bought my first Waterfield sleeve from UC Berkeley as a freshman in college. Now, almost 7 years later, I still have that sleeve (and that laptop) along with 2 other sleeves and they're all alive and kickin'. I have to say they're the only bag I purchased that has lived through my abuse and still maintain a well thought-out design that hasn't damaged my laptops in anyway (I've bought a few others that ended up scratching my laptop with because of the zipper design!). Bravo!
Thanks and best wishes,
My name is Rodrigo. I bought one of your awesome bags for my 13-inch MacBook Pro and picked it up while visiting San Francisco two weeks ago with the help of Tanja. I live in Santaigo, Chile and as I'm sure you have heard we had an awful 8.8 earthquake.
I wanted to share with you how your product saved my laptop from ultimate destruction. My laptop was in the sleevecase bag and it flew from my bed approximately 5 meters (16 feet) and across the floor. I was so happy and releaved to know that my laptop was safe and in perfect condition despite the collapse.
Needless to say, thanks for making such a quality product and saving my laptop's life!
Best regards from Santiago Chile.
I have to tell you an interesting story.
My waterfield sleeve case arrived today in the mail. I was out of the house running some errands when the package came. unfortunately my 5 month old australian shepherd puppy was in the yard.
i was greeted by an excited dog and shredded package everywhere! On the muddy grass was my waterfield case partially inside out. I dusted it off and it was fine. other than being slightly muddy, it was bombproof. Thanks for making a solid product.
On my way through O'Hare Int'l airport in August, an agent told me that as long as there wasn't anything else in the SleeveCase but my laptop, I could just pull the SleeveCase out of my larger bag and send it through the scanner. (i.e., without having to completely extract the laptop.)
I wanted to let you know that the sleeve arrived yesterday as promised. The quality and workmanship are phenomenal. The description on the website and the reviews do not adequately represent the product. I am thrilled with my purchase. Thanks very much for the product and especially the follow-up and customer support.
