WaterField Designs Unveils TSA-Friendly Suede Jacket Sleeve for New MacBook and MacBook Pro
WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom-fitted laptop protection and designer bags and cases for consumer electronics, announces an Ultrasuede Suede Jacket Sleeve designed specifically for the new Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro. Because WaterField Designs manufactures in San Francisco, it leads the industry in providing custom-fitted cases as soon as popular electronic devices are announced. The new Suede Jacket Sleeve is available now from www.sfbags.com and will ship next week. (Also available for the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 17".) The Suede Jacket Sleeve is the ultimate in bulk-free, scratch protection for the MacBook and MacBook Pro. The case is a snug fitting, Ultrasuede cover constructed of 100 percent scratch-free, washable microfiber with stretch memory and no potentially scratching zippers. A loop on each upper end allows users to stretch the fabric while easily inserting the laptop. An imbedded neoprene strip along the bottom protects the laptop where it needs it most. The utmost in TSA-friendly laptop protection, the Suede Jacket allows travelers to leave their laptop protected while it passes through the x-ray apparatus, thereby minimizing damage and easing identification once through security. "Travelers and commuters who carry laptops in a briefcase or other bag want a slim and scratch-protective case option to shelter it from other items in their bag," explained Gary Waterfield, the company's chief designer. "These Suede Jackets fit your laptop perfectly and add close to zero bulk to your load. The case is so scratch-proof and soft, you can even use it to clean your screen." WaterField Designs will also offer custom-fitted SleeveCase sizes -- from its existing SleeveCase line -- for the new Macs for those who prefer more protection. The SleeveCase features customization options: a padded front flap, two strap choices, a PiggyBack accessory holder, and a choice of a vertical or horizontal oriented case to match the orientation of a larger bag. The SleeveCase can remain inside another bag while the laptop is removed. Alternatively, one can opt to add a strap to the sleeve and use it as stand-alone case. Additional WaterField Designs bags for the new MacBook and MacBook Pro include the Racer-X and the HardCase -- each with form-fitting laptop compartments -- and the Cargo, Cozmo, and VertiGo, which accommodate a laptop in a SleeveCase.
