Not often do manufacturers design a laptop bag with one specific brand or even model in mind. I am not talking about a form-fitted case or sleeve, but an actual bag created and/or named to hold a certain device. But the folks at WaterField Designs have done just that; the HardCase is aimed specifically at Apple's 13″ or 15″ MacBook laptops – Air, Pro, and Pro with Retina display. IMO, this is a relatively bold move, and I am hopeful they have created a bag that lives up to WaterField's excellent reputation and Apple's flagship laptops.
"In addition to its stylish look, the Waterfield HardCase is very well constructed with high quality materials, making it a top-end gear bag without a doubt."
Suffice it to say, I was quickly hooked on the comfortable wear, understated and unique design, and unbelievable protection it afforded my computer. This bag has personality: Part messenger, part biker friendly, and part professional briefcase. It's quite simply one of the best laptop bags I've seen in awhile.
