Neo Sleeve for MacBook


Fits the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13-inch with M2 chip

-57 in stock

Protect your NEW MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13-inch with M2 chips 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. 


Sizes also for MacBook Pro 13", 14", 16" and MacBook Air with M1 chip. 

All our products are crafted locally in our workshop by the most skilled sewing team in San Francisco.

Neo sleeve

Nice sleeve fits perfect.

J.R. (Tennessee, United States)
Better than my last one!

Love this sleeve! Got one for old MBA in 2013 and loved it. Just got a new MBAM2 and this thing fits like a glove. Quality and Fit even better. Highly recommended

Michael M. (Texas, United States)
Tight fit for 2022 M2 MBA but built well

Just received the M2 MacBook Air for which this case is intended, and at first we thought it was too small for the machine. After realizing the opening is intended to close a bit around the laptop once inserted, and that the seams are not overly stretched on the sides, I'm confident that this sleeve will do its intended job and protect the M2 MBA through most contingencies. I'm hoping the seams remain solidly stitched and don't loosen over time given how tightly this fits.

Neo Sleeve for the 14 inch MacBook

This sleeve is super nice! And a great price!

Chet-NYC (New York, United States)

I saw someone at work taking out a new 14” MacBook Pro from a sleeve. Having same computer on order, I asked where he got that sleeve. Well, it was his good words about it that made me order it.
At first, I must admit, I thought it was too small, but the stretch of the sleeve makes the fit perfectly snug. It also still fits in the laptop partition in my backpack.
Great design, great product, and great price.

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 Air M2 - Size #9
    • 13” MacBook Pro M2 - 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.
