WaterField Unveils New MacBook Pro, Air and Retina HardCase Laptop Bag

San Francisco-based WaterField Designs has announced a re-design of its HardCase bag for Apple’s MacBook Air, Pro and Retina laptops. The laptop bag combines sturdy ballistic nylon with smooth leather for rugged laptop protection in a classic, minimalist design. WaterField has extended the bag’s main compartment and added additional interior pockets for more carrying capacity and organization. WaterField’s original HardCase Slim remains for those who prefer a more minimalist version.

The new HardCase is designed to hold an Apple laptop, accessories and files. The protective main compartment is layered with a soft, no-scratch, padded liner, a layer of high-density foam and an inner layer of impact-resistant plastic. Within the chamber, a padded laptop pocket offers further protection to cradle the Mac, and two pockets provide organization options. Two additional slim pockets under the flap plus a self-locking zippered back pocket finish the case.

The HardCase projects a tastefully understated refined look, with its dual-tone leather flap, an integrated leather handle, and an aluminum paragliding buckle. Customizable options include a choice of hardware – matte black or nickel; a choice of colors for the underside of the flap – black, cardinal, camel, chocolate, grizzly, kiwi or orange; and different sizes for each Apple laptop model. A removable, Suspension Shoulder Strap with a built-in, non-slip, shoulder pad spreads the briefcase load, making it feel lighter.

“Functionally, the HardCase is an amazing laptop case,” says company founder, Gary WaterField. “The combination of the smoothly-finished leather flap with its colored underside along with the unique paragliding buckle, make this case at home in both formal meetings and on city streets.”

The HardCase 13-inch sells for $239 and is available now, made to order. Cases ship within five business days.

The HardCase 15-inch, sells for $249, and may be pre-ordered now, with shipping to begin in early January.

Options:
• Hardware: black matte or nickel
• Dual-leather flap in black plus underside color choice of: black, cardinal, camel, chocolate, grizzly, kiwi or orange (especially good for SF Giants fans).
