Top quality and fit

I’ve purchased so many products from WaterField Designs because the quality and style are fantastic. My most recent purchase is just what I needed. The fit of the MacBook sleeve case is perfect. And the quality is great as usual.

Anurag B. (California, United States)
love the sleeve

I loved the sleeve, very good quality and looks great.

Still going since 2019!

This is some long term feedback on the MacBook SleeveCase #38 (The order says #40 but the interior tag says 38). It was Order #153413 on 25JUL2019.
It has outlived the MacBook Air 13” that it was purchased for. The MacBook is still functional and looks great but slowed down to the point where it was recently replaced by a MacBook Air 15.” The SleeveCase has over 100,000 miles on it back and forth between America and Asia. It has outlived the two Maxpedition Tiburon rucks it was carried in. They have been retired due to showing significant signs of wear both internally and externally. Though I do not try to I tend to be rather rough on my gear. Most days the case moved from my room to my office to several rooms, and back to my room. The MacBook was removed and reinserted in each room.
Other than some minor wear in two corners and the highest point of the edge of the flap the case looks good as new and would easily survive the life of another MacBook Air 13”.

Love this sleeve.

I’ll admit i havent had too much time to use this yet, however the quality of this sleeve is out of this world. I love the smell of leather and this sleeve out of the package has that smell in spades. Its very well made and fits my 13 inch M2 Air perfectly!

terrific sleeve case for 15" Macbook Air.

i first ordered a bag that didn't work for me because i have to use it in a power chair and the bag was too large to sit on my lap. i then returned the bag and replaced it with a sleeve case which works very well for me. note: the refund for the bag i returned was handled immediately. i am totaly satisfied with botrh the bag and the service.

The Waterfield Macbook Sleevecase Review

MacSparky - January 25, 2018

“I opted for the additional side clips and strap so I could wear it over my shoulder. I’m glad I did because I ended up carrying this computer bag everywhere.”

Custom-fit for the Mac, the SleeveCase will outlive your device. 


"The sleeve is sturdy, well-padded, perfectly fits my laptop, and I love the waxed canvas/leather combination." - Rich A.


When Steve Jobs introduced Apple's titanium PowerBook in 2001, WaterField designed a custom-fit sleeve to protect it. The SleeveCase was sized to fit the exact dimensions of the PowerBook so it stayed snug and scratch-free. This precise fit was different from the Small, Medium, Large sizes popular with PC cases at the time. 


The SleeveCase continues to protect every version of Apple's laptops, starting with the PowerBook, iBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Polycarbonate, MacBook Unibody, MacBook Air, MacBook Retina, and the current M1 Macs. There are also sizes for the iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Pro. 


“I've been buying sleeve cases from you guys, since the PowerBook G3 (Lombard). For those keeping track, we're talking maybe 17 years or so. All the sleeves have been great.” - Jacob J., CA, USA, 2018


“About 20 years ago I ordered a soft black leather sleeve — best ever, custom-made before you discontinued it — for a G4 Titanium. Probably still in the attic somewhere. It came with a signed, handwritten card by Gary ;-). Same awesome customer service as in the early days. I am impressed." - Philippe M., USA 2021  




Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

“I have actually used one of your original products for some time (laptop sleeve) as well as a messenger bag. The sleeve itself is probably 20 years old, but I still use it regularly. Just proves how well-built it is.” - Leo T., Alabama



“Ever since the first 11” MacBook Air in 2010, I rely on WaterField sleeves for my (ridiculous) MacBook Collection. This brown sleeve was love at first sight. I love the materials and the overall quality. Being a German customer, I don't even care for shipping costs and customs – these sleeves are totally worth it. Truly, honestly, highly recommended." - Burkhardt F., Germany
