Protect your NEW 14-inch MacBook Pro from scratches in the minimalist Neo Sleeve. The 4mm neoprene has great tensile strength and keeps its shape no matter how much it's stretched.  Side seams use re-inforced cross-stitching that move as the neoprene stretches so your MacBook will always have a snug fit. Side tabs help you smoothly insert and remove your MBP, and a full-grain leather grip at the bottom makes it easy to grip and hold comfortably. 


Custom-sizes also for 16" MacBook Pro, 13" MacBook Pro, 13" MacBook Air.

Tip top

Seems to fit great and work beautifully. Nice work kids.

Compact sleeve that provides good cushioning

The Neo sleeve is well designed and constructed of quality durable materials that provide good cushioning and protection for the laptop. I would like to have a velcro strap closure or a simple top flap to insure that the laptop can't slip out of the sleeve, but that is a minor deficit for a great quality product.

Just Right

Well-made and not bulky.

Great Design and Lewk!
Snug Fit and Right Amount of Protection

Either bad luck or bad product design in general (too small)

I have used it for some weeks now and I noticed some dark greyish black lines all of the sides of the MacBook Pro, which can be wiped off, but I'm not really sure whether that black material is coming from the sleeve or if its the finish of the MBP scratching off. It's right at the height where the sleeve is sued together in the middle. On my product if I go over the seam I can feel some really hard and sharp parts of plastics, which are probably scratching at my laptop during putting on and off the sleeve.
I have talked to a few other users of this sleeve, and some, but not all had the same experience like me.

If you take the horizontal version like me, pull the tab on the sides stronger to get your laptop out. Or else, in my case, I experienced that the seam get stuck at the ports. And I fear that one day it could damage the connector of the mag safe port.

I hope this product is not a bad design and I just got a flawed one which was sewn a little too narrow. If not better get a one from a chinese brand, the quality and quality check might be on a smilier level or better.

WaterField Design’s Neo Sleeve holds a Mac laptop snuggly and securely

Apple World Today - November 11, 2021

“I’ve chosen the US$39 Neo Sleeve from WaterField Designs to protect my pricey 16-inch MacBook Pro when traveling.”

Apple World Today Rating (out of 5 stars): ★★★★★


The Neo Sleeve is custom-fit for each "naked" MacBook Pro. Any additional protective case on your MacBook Pro will be a poor fit with the Neo Sleeve. Choose your size based on your MacBook model. 


  1. These (naked) devices fit in Vertical & Horizontal orientation:
    • 14" MacBook Pro M1 - Size #5
    • 16” MacBook Pro M1 - Size #7
    • 13” MacBook Pro - Size #38
    • 13” MacBook Air - Size #40



The lightweight Neo Sleeve provides snug protection for your naked MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. We use the same 4mm neoprene used in wetsuits, so you know your Mac will be well-protected.

The fit will be quite tight initially, but give it time and the neoprene will stretch to your device's exact fit. Check out the memory stretch of your new Neo Sleeve by leaving the laptop overnight in the case, and you should see it be a bit looser the next day.  




Put your device in one side, then stretch the other side over it and slip it in. Use the pull tabs to guide it in. 


Give it time, and you'll always have the perfect fit.
