Love it

Exceptionally high quality, striking design, fits perfectly and amazing service. Couldn’t be happier.

This is my third one. They are that good.

Poor quality material and craftsmanship

I've purchased lots of bags from Waterfield Designs over the years and I'm not a huge fan of this product for two reasons.
1) The canvas shown in the pictures is a higher quality twill and the canvas used on the bag that arrived is not twill and doesn't look good when distressed, it just looks like someone crumpled it up. It's wrinkly and weird.
2) The stitching is not as on point as it used to be: stich lines aren't straight.

Other than quality and aesthetics I like the magnetic closure, but it can be a little annoying to use because you have to shove your fingers in it open it up to get your laptop back in. I believe a more pleasant experience could be provided by adding some pull tabs on at least one side so that it can be opened more easily.

The sleeve just a bit is too small for my ‘old’ Mac Book Air

Sad to say my old Mac Book Air is about one inch too small for he sleeve. Love the quality and cushion! But just 1 inch too small.. love it and hope it will do. But with I know the outside perimeter would not be the best... love the quality and workmanship... truest great! Did not return it because I am hoping the sleeve will stretch!!! ( just check your edge to edge measurements!)

Ronald B. (Michigan, United States)
Fantastic! Snug and safe!

This is a fantastic low profile yet very safe sleeve for you Macbook Pro. It fits perfectly, and the magnetic seal on top closes just over the top of your macbook making it just a tad larger than the notebook itself and easy to put in any bag — or your SF muzetto or any other cargo or messenger bag! Or you can use it by itself (though SFBags makes other sleeves if you want to carry it around without a bag that might suit you better). Love it, it lives inside by Vitesse Messenger, which is itself very lightweight but does not have a protected interior laptop sleeve — this fits the bill perfectly and the color matches my trim on my vitesse. Nice.
