Second purchase...

I purchased the first sleeve for a MacBook Air several years ago. It never broke, never faltered, never came undone - stayed in perfect condition.
This item is not cheap, but it is extremely well manufactured and I am very confident that it will outlast the computer. I recommend it.

The Perfect Case

I love this case. It is sleek and completely usable. The feel and material make it fun to handle. Nothing “annoying” here. It is just fun to own and great to use

Great Sleeve for a great laptop

I don't buy laptops very often. My new M1 MacBook Air replaces my trusty late-2012 MacBook Pro. So I got this great sleeve to protect the new computer and hopefully it will give me a similar long-life. The whole sleeve is great! Little mesh pocket holds a fee essentials that I carry everywhere.

Great product, even better support

This is my second Dash and the only reason I changed is because I wanted a new color. The old one looks better than when it was new, and even more important my 6 year old MBP looks brand new. The company and their products are fantastic, I wouldn’t even look at another brand for Apple products.

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.”

Apple World Today Rating (Out Of 5 Stars):

THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MINIMALISM

The mesh pocket stows accessories you'll need to stay productive.

 

"I was concerned it might not provide enough protection for my MacBook Pro when carrying to cafes and business meetings. However, the protection and mesh pockets make it a great fit for a day away from the office; carrying it to meet with customers. Love it." - John F.

NEW Forza Textile

The Dash Sleeve adds another high performance textile to its lineup. The Forza fabric is made by weaving together two yarn-dyed nylon threads in a unique basketweave creating a vibrant pattern with undertones. It gives the case a classy look that works well in both professional and casual settings.
