Snazzy Look While Giving Great Protection

Still early in my relationship with my MacBook SleeveCase, but I can say we are off to a wonderful start. The sleeve provided my new computer with cushioned protection during long flight to South Africa, while garnering a number of compliments. Would recommend!

Quality is hard to match

This is my 5th Waterfield product. As with every other product from them, the quality is unmatched. I hope this company never compromises on their materials and quality control. I equate them to Apple, as in whatever you purchase from them you already know that it will be amazing quality, solid, and work exactly as expected for a long time to come. As long as Waterfield keeps up the amazing quality and never compromises, I will always come here first for my products. Judging by their well deserved ratings from others it looks like I'm not alone.

Ready to travel & train

I’m thrilled w/my new MacBook Pro computer case! As a Certified Enneagram Coach I travel for typings & trainings. It was exactly what I had in my “mind’s eye” & I love when that happens.

MacBook Pro Sleeve!!

Super happy with SFBags! Years ago bought an SFBag sleeve for my iPad. When it arrived I couldn’t believe the amazing quality for the price. When it was time to replace my iPad with a new one, I bought one that was the same size so I could continue to use that sleeve (I also liked the size of that iPad compared to the enormous new ones). Recently I upgraded my MacBook Pro to a new one with the M1 chip, there was no question where the case was coming from and immediately went to SFBags and ordered the matching sleeve to the iPad. Great job to everyone at SFBags and thanks for making quality pieces right here in the ‘ol US of A!!!

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
