This is my 3rd product from these guys. I can't stress how pleased I have been not only with customer service but the quality of their products. I ordered this and made a mistake and ordered the incorrect size. When I notice the mistake in the confirmation email, I sent them a message and they were able to correct my mistake and send me the correct size all within the normal shipping time. The Sleevecase was a perfect fit for my MacBook Pro (13"). When I first got it, I was concerned it was going to be too small but it was the perfect fit. Not too tight you can't get it out either. I see a lot of people complaining about the price. Look, is WaterField products the lowest priced? No. However, with that said I have had my two other products from them for over two plus years. Both bags have been my go to bags for flying and have been through a lot of wear and these bags still look great and function the way they were intended. Pay once! cry once people! trust me you won't be disappointed. (All my products were in the canvas).

A great, overpriced sleeve

Honestly, there’s no denying that this is probably the best sleeve you can buy for your MacBook. The build quality is just exceptional. I was happy to leave it at that and keep my thoughts private, but I keep getting dogged with emails every day to review this, so because they asked for it, I will give my honest opinion.

In spite of the quality, I think it’s always important to evaluate one’s purchase with respect to the price. Candidly, $70 for the most basic sleeve is just too much. Not to mention that I paid $50 for my previous one (bigger Macbook actually)from Waterfield. Thankfully I already had a strap so I didn’t have to spend anymore than absolutely necessary on it. I think a 40% increase is a little much.

Again, this is an absolutely great sleeve, but is it really head and shoulders better than what you would get on Amazon? I’m not so sure.

Laptop bag

Love the Mac book case holder for wife’s new apple laptop. Fits great and has style

Excellent, as usual...

I will only buy bags from SF because they are very sturdy and well-made. I like this case because it is stylish and discrete. It does not scream out “I have an expensive laptop here.” Of course, when you were using the case, you get a good sense of the attention to detail and care of that went into making this case. My computer fits nice and snuggly, and there’s a loop at the bottom for pulling out the laptop Seems like a small thing to have a loop at the bottom, but when pulling out the laptop, it makes a huge, huge difference!

I won't use anything else

I just purchased a Waterfield case for my new 13" MacBook Pro. This is my 4th Waterfield product. No other case I have seen comes close to Waterfield's quality, durability, function, and protection. PLUS, the price is extremely competitive.

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.
