Luxurious Finish, Quality Build!

This sleeve and accompanying gear pouch are of an unmatched build and quality. I bought a similar sleeve for my 2011 MacBook Air and after 7 years it's still in perfect condition (my wife now uses it). These products have the best quality and fit & finish of any similar products I've ever purchased. And the kicker - they're still in the same building in San Francisco since I bought my original sleeve in 2011! For those of you who don't know what it's like to do business in San Francisco, several years in the same location is a feat in and of itself! If you're able to stay in the same location for several years in San Francisco, then you must be doing something right!

Still the best sleeve for my MacBook Air

I stumbled onto WaterField back in 2010 when I was searching around online for a sleeve for my MacBook Pro 15", and bought another one in 2013 when I got a MacBook Air 13".

I'm still running that Air--I'm not a big fan of the recent MacBook Pro offerings--and replaced the battery on that machine yesterday, so I thought I'd treat myself to a replacement Waterfield sleeve as well. The one from 2013 has held up extremely well, given that I use it daily. It has been rockclimbing in Joshua Tree, on business trips to the Bay Area, and travelled with me to London, Edinburgh, Paris, Barcelona... After 5 years of use and abuse, my old machine deserves a new sleeve.

Thanks for making a great product. It's why I keep coming back.

Wonderful Bag

The bag is perfect in every way.

Macbook sleeve review

As always, a well made product by Waterfield!

MacBook Pro 15" sleeve

As usual this bag looks great, fits perfectly, and I will continue to buy more and more stuff from Waterfield Designs.

Should I get a horizontal or vertical SleeveCase?

We recommend that you match the orientation of the SleeveCase with the bag you plan to stow your laptop in. This allows you to access your laptop without removing the entire Sleeve.

What is the loop on the bottom of the SleeveCase?

The loop is to hold on to when removing your laptop - rather than squeezing the SleeveCase and device inside that you are trying to remove - the finger hold makes this work better.

I have a protective case on my Apple laptop, will the SleeveCase fit?

We custom-fit each Apple laptop for a snug fit with the "naked" laptop. Even a slim protective case will make a difference. Send us a quick email and we'll help find the right size for a great fitting SleeveCase.

What is a Suspension Strap?

We call it the "suspension" strap because this strap stretches just a bit, adding a little spring effect so your laptop is a little lighter to carry. The underside of the strap is lined with grippy material so it sits on your shoulder, preventing it from moving around. The strap is removable and snaps onto metal D-rings.

I already have a strap I plan to use. How would I complete the order?

When selecting your Strap Options, please choose "D-rings only". That way, we'll sew the D-rings on for you so you can attach your existing strap.

I need more storage than the rear pocket offers. What should I do?

The Piggybackcomfortably stores your power supply, mouse, hard drive, or phone. Hook the piggyback onto your SleeveCase (D-rings required) when you need the storage and un-hook when you don't.
