Incredible Product!

I’ve become a huge fan of Waterfield Designs and in particular their sleeve cases. I stumbled upon them about 3 generations of MacBooks ago and fell in love. The quality is amazing and it protects my gear so well. Each time I update my computer, a new sleeve is the first accessory I buy. It never fails either, the first time I bring out the bag I am asked where I got it. Incredible designs and amazing craftsmanship. I’m a fan for life!

Perfect sleeve

Great gift!!

SF Bags are simply the best

I am a bag bag junkie - no apologies I discovered Gary’s bags a number of years ago and they have NEVER let me down. As his product line evolved the products have gotten even better thanks to the addition of Grizzly Leather and waxed canvas. Thanks for a handsome, functional, and durable daily companion!

Excellent Workmanship

I bought the waxed canvas version of the MacBook sleeve for my new M1 13” MacBook Pro. I love the “broken in” weathered look, but also appreciate how protective nature of the case. The fit is perfect. One of the reviewers complained about the strap at the bottom of the case. I find it is needed to pull the sleeve off of the MacBook, as the MacBook is snug in the case (a positive characteristic). My only complaint is the velcro strap is very noisy when opened. I have seen this addressed on other bags by adding a female velcro flap that has two positions, out of the way or secured over the male strap. Camera bags use this technique to maintain “quiet” for Wedding Photographers. When secured the main flap can be opened or closed with no velcro ripping sound. My wife would appreciate it when I grab the laptop after she has gone to bed! The perfect snug fit of the 13” MacBook Pro eliminates the risk of the laptop inadvertently sliding out.
Overall I am very pleased with this purchase!

Superb quality and service

The MacBook SleeveCase and piggyback combo is exceptional in quality and just what I needed for my new device. Service has also been exemplary with my order shipped out within a matter of a couple of hours from putting the order through.
Thank you Gary and team,

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 Apple's Steven Jobs introduced the Titanium PowerBook in 1999, WaterField came out with its first custom-fit SleeveCase. Since then, the SleeveCase has continued to protect every version of Apple's laptops, including the PowerBook, iBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Polycarbonate, MacBook Unibody, MacBook Air, MacBook Retina. 

“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., California, USA


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.
