“If you're looking for a quality protective sleeve that will last you a lifetime, the SleeveCase should be the one to considered.”
MobilityMinded - June 25, 2009
Short Version: Beautiful, perfect fit, a little pricey but worth it because it'll last.
Long Version: This is my second MacBook SleeveCase. The last case I purchased outlasted several MacBooks! I could have kept going with my current MacBook but the case is a little too big because MacBooks have slimmed down in the last 10 years, and it was starting to look a little worn. So due to my particular preferences and vanity, I bought a new one.
The new one I got holds a perfect fit, and I have a smug sense of satisfaction knowing that this case was made for my laptop and no other model. Sometimes I want to hold up the case and say, "There's no one like you," but that would be weird... right?
The waxed canvas is beautiful, and even though it was a little pricey, I have no doubt it will outlast my MacBook for many more generations. With that in mind, the case will continue to age and grow in its aesthetics. When you factor in the years of use I'll get and the peace of knowing my device is well-protected without sacrificing the slimmer profile, the cost will be minor at the end of the case's life.
Good materials, tight secure fit. Could be used alone with the strap or in your larger bag like a true sleeve. I would have preferred a buckle of some sort to Velcro closure.
I had my first Waterfield SleeveCase for 8 and half years. When I replaced my 2010 MacBook Air with the late 2018 version, I chose the new sleevecase in waxed canvas. I am even more pleased with the new version than the previous one (which lives on with my wife who inherited the old 'Air). It protects just as well, and feels, looks and even smells better than the old one. And as the Apple salesman said when I brought it into the store, the SleeveCase has character.
Should I get a horizontal or vertical SleeveCase?
We recommend that you match the orientation of the SleeveCase with the bag you plan to stow your laptop in. This allows you to access your laptop without removing the entire Sleeve.
What does D-rings only mean?
D-rings are the metal hardware sewn to the SleeveCase for the optional strap to attach to. If you already own a strap or want to leave the option to add a strap later, you can purchase the D-ring hardware only. If you opt for the suspension strap, the D-rings are included.
What is the loop on the bottom of the SleeveCase?
The loop is to hold on to when removing your laptop - rather than squeezing the SleeveCase and device inside that you are trying to remove - the finger hold makes this work better.
I have a protective case on my Apple laptop, will the SleeveCase fit?
We custom-fit each Apple laptop for a snug fit with the "naked" laptop. Even a slim protective case will make a difference. Send us a quick email and we'll help find the right size for a great fitting SleeveCase.
What is a Suspension Strap?
We call it the "suspension" strap because this strap stretches just a bit, adding a little spring effect so your laptop is a little lighter to carry. The underside of the strap is lined with grippy material so it sits on your shoulder, preventing it from moving around. The strap is removable and snaps onto metal D-rings.
I already have a strap I plan to use. How would I complete the order?
When selecting your Strap Options, please choose "D-rings only". That way, we'll sew the D-rings on for you so you can attach your existing strap.
I need more storage than the rear pocket offers. What should I do?
The Piggybackcomfortably stores your power supply, mouse, hard drive, or phone. Hook the piggyback onto your SleeveCase (D-rings required) when you need the storage and un-hook when you don't.
