WaterField Dash Sleeve for Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 review

Windows Central -January 29, 2017

“There are some specific usage scenarios that the Dash Sleeve fits well, and it's a great option to have if you travel a lot with the Surface Book or Pro 4 and are looking for protection. WaterField Designs is a company that stands behind its products, and I recommend the Dash Sleeve.”

WaterField Designs Dash Sleeve: Protecting your MacBook in style

Apple World Today - June 12, 2015

“Gary Waterfield and his team at Waterfield Designs do amazing work, and I've been happy with every one of the products that I've tested. The Dash Sleeve is no exception to the rule. I know it's well-constructed and will last longer than I'll probably keep my MacBook... after which time it will be used to protect some future Apple device.”

This is my fourth product from SF Bags and the quality remains amazing. Nowhere else you find thoughtful design, premium materials, and great craftmanship all in one package. SF Bags products always deliver. The dash sleeve for a MS Surface Pro fits perfect for the Surface and Type Cover. The locking zippered pocket is great with the compartment for the pen.

Very satisfied

This is exactly what I was looking for in a sleeve for my Surface Book. Basically, I wanted as sleeve for my small-ish messenger bag that has no laptop compartment, but I wanted one that I could easily take my computer out of with it still in the bag. The Surface Book fits snugly but it's too tight, and the elastic strap over the top is nice for when I want to carry out around in just the sleeve. The inside has a very nice lining, and I like the overall look of it (I got it in blue). It's not cheap, as sleeves go, but seems like it's nicer than similarly priced sleeves.

Great item

Great fit, just what I needed. Arrived quickly. Excellent Service

Great Sleeve

This my 3rd Dash Sleeve, I have one for my Surface Pro, Macbook Pro and now, Surface Go. Lightweight and gives good protection.


As always material and fit is perfect. I wish it was a smooth curve cut at both bottom edge if it was possible to do

Is this case TSA friendly?

Yes, this case is TSA friendly. Your laptop case is a designated laptop-only case that you can lay flat on the X-ray belt.

What is ballistic nylon?

Ballistic nylon is another durable, nearly-indestructable material that can take dings and nicks and bounce right back still looking good. The black color never fades so it will look like fresh even after many years of wear and tear. We chose ballistic nylon material to provide you with another choice without sacrificing quality.

Is there a pocket for the Surface Pen?

Yes. The rear mesh pocket has a dedicated Ultrasuede pocket for the Surface Pen and is secured within the power mesh pocket with YKK locking zippers.

What is a Power Mesh pocket?

Power mesh is an extremely durable material ideal for storing bulky items such as your power adapter. Power Mesh won't stretch out overtime.

I have an additional protective case on my Surface Pro, will the Dash fit?

The Surface Pro Dash sizes are a snug fit for the Surface Pro with Type Cover. Additional bulk from a case will make for a poor fit.
