More than meets the eye. You'll find superior protection for your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with Retina Display in the dime-thin, compact CitySlicker. Three layers to keep your Mac laptop safe & snug—impact-resistant plastic + high grade neoprene + padded liner. Stretchable pockets to keep key accessories are hidden under the leather flap to keep the sleek look.
Just received the package with all my cases/sleeves.... LOVE THEM! Especially the City Slicker briefcase... it's absolutely stunning. Have a meeting tomorrow which I don't need my laptop for, but you can be sure I'll be rocking up showing it off! :o)
Just wanted to add one final comment which may or may not be useful in yer sales brochure... I've been using the City Slicker every day since I received it and still love it. One thing I've noticed is, I've been through a few airports since last September and not once have I been asked to remove my laptop from its case for scanning! Everyone ahead and behind me is asked to do so... but I guess they see the City Slicker and assume there's nothing more there than a few sheets of paper. An unintended benefit I'm sure... but a helpful one. City Slicker + Retina Display MBP = less hassle at airports. ;o)
Thanks once again for all yer correspondence and helpful updates. It's been a pleasure dealing with ye from the first moment I landed on yer product page.
Keep up the great work and for sure I'll recommend ye to anyone that'll listen!
I have had the new 13" City Slicker for almost a month now. I joined a multi year project that required me to go from meeting to meeting and needed something to carry my MBA 13" and have room for power cables, and other accessories.
My requirements were ability to carry basic accessories, power cord, mouse, cables, portable hard drive, and IPhone. Needed to have style but not look like I was carrying my desk in a backpack from meeting to meeting.
I saw the City Slicker and it seemed to fit the requirements. My previous experience with Waterfield cases has been very positive, as I still use the original Ipad Ultimate Sleeve Case. The quality, well thought out design and durability gave me an assurance that this would be money well spent.
The City Slicker I ordered was the Chocolate with no handle, but with "D" rings. I use my shoulder strap from my IPad case along with the mini piggyback if I need to carry more. I found my choices were correct.
The Chocolate looks great and the comments on the City Slicker have been numerous. The best part is I can carry what I need, for all my meetings without over burdening myself. I can pack up quickly and efficiently from one meeting and run to the next.
Last weekend I used the City Slicker to travel throughout Boston for leisure and work. The City Slicker is now my travel "light" tool.
The guys and gals at Waterfield continue to design, and produce quality products understanding the customer. Thank you and when asked I my recommendation is that they cannot go wrong with Waterfield Designs.
After receiving the CitySlickers bag for my MBPr and getting to use it for a little over a week, I must say that it is a FANTASTIC bag. I am slightly a perfectionist and i have to say i love everything about this bag. From the leather used to the protection provided to the stitching im a very happy with the bag. I love the sleekness and find myself leaving the cable guy in the trunk of my car in case i ever need my charger. These two product work great with each other. My first week using the cityslicker and i have already received 3 compliments on the bag. I even gave your post card that comes with the bag to someone so that they could visit your website and possibly order a bag for themselves. i love the professional look of the bag. Great job guys on a fantastic product. Any possibility of leather wallets or card cases in the future?

"Amazing quality design, materials and build; Good protection thanks to three layers of materials around the notebook; Sharp-looking; With the D-Rings and handle is makes a great mini-briefcase."

"It's slim, stylish, useful, and protects my MacBook Air at the same time. With the CitySlicker, you don't need to get a sleeve case and a bag to carry your MacBook Air anymore. It's the best of both worlds."

"WaterField does it right when it uses leather, it picks the highest quality pieces of leather and it certainly shows in the CitySlicker."

"...almost nothing distracts from the beauty of this bag, with its three layers of protection."
"If you need a messenger bag to get you around town while carrying just the minimum amount of accessories, there is no reason not to keep the SFBags CitySlicker at the very top of your list."

"a near-perfect choice for MacBook users who want something slim and professional-looking with just the hint of a rugged side."
"For those who just need to carry their MacBook and a few accessories—either in a larger bag or on your shoulder—you can't go wrong with this case"

"Right away, the classic look of the bag was noticeable along with the build quality. The padding was thick throughout and really brought a sense of confidence knowing my MacBook Air would be protected very well in this case"
