WaterField Designs HardCase review

The Gadgeteer - April 29, 2013

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."

Review: A bag with split personalities

TechHive - Oct 18, 2013

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.

The Waterfield Designs HardCase is a luxury messenger bag that aims to be a step above any other notebook bag on the market. Offering high quality leather inside and out, high quality metal components, and a plush interior to keep your notebook safe in any situation, this bag doesn't spare any expense. ... it will turn heads no matter where you go.
"The attention to detail throughout the Waterfield HardCase is something I have not seen in a bag reviewed to date. "
Conclusion: The Waterfield HardCase is a messenger bag designed for people who want the best materials possible surrounding their notebook...for those who have the cash to pony up, you won't regret it. The materials used throughout the design are great, the leather quality is excellent, and the hardware is strong enough to tow a car.

HardCase MacBook Case - 4.8 stars (11 reviews)

What is a paragliding buckle?

A very cool piece of hardware. An anodized aluminum buckle used in paragliding harnesses. It makes for easy, quick access and secures shut with a satisfying click.

What type of leather do you use?

We use naturally-tanned, lightly treated leather. Each piece is one of a kind and displays the natural texture of the hide. Over time the leather should show character like a good leather bomber jacket.

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.
