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.”

Everything they make at Waterfield performs exactly as described. The Dash sleeve is no exception. It’s perfectly fitted for the new MacBook Pro with a thick protective nape on the inside that’s like nestling your laptop in fur. It is an excellent product.

Excellent Product

Very nice! Perfect for my new MacBook (2017) and accessories. I own several Waterfield products and really like them all. the quality is superb.

Perfect sleeve and typical Waterfield quality

I have the canvas and my wife has the nylon. Both for our new MBPs perfectly. They are great to rest the MBP on while using it in your lap. Both meet the high standards you expect from Waterfield. I would not even consider another brand.

Dash Sleeve

I love my new Dash Sleeve. Although it is very sleek and can fit easily in my bag, I know that my MacBook Pro is protected. I am overall happy with my purchase.


Case is perfect for someone that's takes their computer everywhere! The zip pocket is my favorite part; can fit my charger, headphones, mouse, and probably more in there. The design and craft is beautiful! Worth every penny!

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.
