Waterfield Dash: MacBook sleeve of the Gods

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.”

Perfect Laptop Cover

This sleeve is perfect for protecting my new MacBook. It looks great. It’s functional (love that I can charge it in the sleeve) and the accessory pockets keep all extras neat and handy. I’m never disappointed by my WaterField bags!

Snug as a bug in a rug.

Love my vertical MacBook Pro sleeve. First, it’s really good looking. And also highly functional? That’s a bonus. Wakefield design never disappoints. I order a new case from them even before I order the laptop.

Simple, soft, and stylish

I was thrilled to see Waterfield make such a fitted, stylish sleeve specific to particular MacBook Pro models. I am very happy with the fit, look, and ability to still access the ports for charging while it's still in the sleeve (I chose the vertical configuration).

In case anyone is curious about the fit, my computer does not have any additional shell or protective case, but I do have a delicate vinyl decal on the outer lid of the laptop. The fit is secure and snug, but not tight enough to damage the decal.

Dash sleeve for MacBook Air

I got the black ballistic nylon. It’s perfect for my new MacBook Air. Weighs almost nothing and fits like a good glove.



Is this case TSA friendly?

Yes, this case is TSA friendly. Your laptop case is a designated laptop-only case that you can lay flat on the X-ray belt.

What is ballistic nylon?

Ballistic nylon is another durable, nearly-indestructable material that can take dings and nicks and bounce right back still looking good. The black color never fades so it will look like fresh even after many years of wear and tear. We chose ballistic nylon material to provide you with another choice without sacrificing quality.

What is a Power Mesh pocket?

Power mesh is an extremely durable material ideal for storing bulky items such as your power adapter. Power Mesh won't stretch out overtime.

I have a protective case on my laptop, will the Dash fit?

The laptop Dash sizes are a snug fit for the "naked" laptop. Additional bulk from a case will make for a poor fit. Consult the "What Fits" tab for tablet sizing.
