Wild West Meets Modern with Waterfield Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger

WaterField Designs, a San Francisco designer-manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, bags and cases, debuts the Maverick Leather Messenger, a premium laptop bag reminiscent of a Wild West postal satchel with functionality for modern-day professionals. Each Maverick is cut from a single full-grain leather hide with few seams and will develop a gorgeous patina over time. With padded laptop and tablet compartments and internal accessory pockets inside a raw-leather interior, the Maverick brings old-world artisanship into the digital age.

Wild West Meets Modern with Waterfield Maverick Leather Laptop Messenger

“In an increasingly disposable society, the American-Made Maverick Messenger Bag bucks the trend. It is built to last,” said owner Gary Waterfield. “This bag invites attention and will grow with you to bear the marks of your own unique story; it will look even more beautiful years from now than it does today.”

 

The Maverick’s uncluttered design keeps the bag compact, even when full. It features waxed-canvas, padded laptop and tablet compartments, and comes in a choice of two sizes: the Compact fits the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and other 13-inch Macs, and the Full fits the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina and similarly-sized laptops. Each also includes a 12.9-inch padded tablet pocket. Opposite that are two waxed-canvas accessory pockets, the first with a self-locking zipper to secure valuables and a second, open-topped for easy access. An angled shoulder strap and matching leather shoulder pad enhance comfort. A leather grab handle, secured with strong rivets, offers a more formal carrying option. The laptop messenger bag’s double leather flap closes with a leather tab and a secure screw stud, adjustable to two lengths.

 

The Maverick’s minimalist design highlights the bag’s exquisite leather and classic look. Available in black, chocolate or grizzly full-grain leather, each bag is cut from a single hide, ensuring an even tone and feel throughout. Thick, supple leather gives the bag structure. Inside, a raw leather main compartment shows off the beauty of the leather and the bag’s careful construction.

* Compact – 13-inch padded laptop compartment fits MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and all 13-inch Macs. Padded tablet compartment fits up to 12.9-inch iPad Pro or similar tablet.

Syde MacBook Pro Touch Bar Case – A Minimalist Carry from WaterField Designs

WaterField Designs today is proud to announce the new Syde Case – a custom-fitted case that bridges the gap between a laptop sleeve and briefcase – for Apple’s highly-anticipated, new MacBook Pro Touch Bar laptops. The lightweight, slim Syde carries and protects a minimalist professional’s entire mobile office – laptop, accessories and essentials. The Syde combines a fitted, laptop sleeve in rugged ballistic nylon or waxed canvas with a large, full-grain leather, soft-lined compartment for laptop accessories, wallet, keys and iPhone. WaterField has been designing and manufacturing laptop sleeves, bags, and cases for digital gear in its San Francisco studio since 1998, and has developed custom-fitted cases for every Apple laptop since 2001.

 

“These days all I usually need is my laptop and cords, iPhone and pocket basics,” noted company owner, Gary Waterfield. “For the Syde, we set out to design a sophisticated and functional case that fits into any environment and that carries everything a minimalist professional like me needs. I love the laptop compartment’s silent magnetic closure that lets me retrieve my laptop quietly during meetings and the ability to sling the new Syde over my shoulder or carry it with the more-formal handles.”

 

A black ballistic or waxed canvas, neoprene-lined, laptop compartment in custom-fitted MacBook Pro Touch Bar sizes forms the basis of the light, compact Syde Case. The front sports a soft-lined, full-grain leather compartment with internal organizational pockets: pen slots including one sized for the Apple Pencil and a padded, dedicated compartment for an iPhone. Ample space in the leather compartment remains for a MacBook power brick, a wallet and keys, or for a small WaterField Gear Pouch to organize items separately. A side-to-side magnetic closure opens smoothly and silently for easy laptop access, and an open-topped back pocket stores an extra magazine or files. An external bottom loop helps ease the laptop out of its snug-fitting case. Leather handles and a removable shoulder strap allow users to carry the bag briefcase- or messenger-style.

 

WaterField has been crafting custom-fitted sleeves and cases for every Apple laptop since Steve Jobs first introduced the Titanium PowerBook. To accommodate users’ individual needs, WaterField Designs offers additional cases with a range of functionality and protection – the minimalist Suede Jacket Sleeve, the svelte Dash Sleeve, the workhorse SleeveCase and the newly-introduced, colorful Maxwell Sleeve, each custom-fitted to individual MacBook sizes. Many WaterField Designs bags include internal sleeves to protect MacBooks in transit.

 

Pricing and Availability:
The Syde MacBook Case is priced at $159 (USD). There are sizes for the 15-inch MacBook Pro Touch Bar, 13-inch MacBook Pro Touch Bar, 13-inch MacBook, MacBook 12-inch. Color options and materials: Black ballistic nylon with full-grain leather pouch in black or grizzly leather. Tan waxed Canvas with full-grain leather pouch in grizzly. All Syde cases include a removable shoulder strap. WaterField Designs ships worldwide from its online store. The Syde Case is available now for preorder. The 13-inch sizes ship early November. The 15-inch size ships mid to late November.

The Best New MacBook Pro Case Just Announced from Gumdrop Cases

The new DropTech MacBook Pro case not only protects the new MacBook Pro from scratches and splashes, but also from disastrous, damaging drops. It’s Gumdrop’s most rugged case design yet! The DropTech’s unique design strategically employs a combination of rugged and high impact materials that have no problem protecting the edges and corners of the MacBook from normal use and repeated abuse.

 

The bumpers in each corner are made from 10mm of silicone to maximize protection without being overly bulky. Beneath the protective bumpers is a clear Polycarbonate inner top shell. The shell is tough, and lightweight, allowing for lasting protection from general wear-and-tear. Plus, it’s easy to clean and can show off the iconic Apple logo, asset tags, school logos, or anything else you need to add to your MacBook!

 

Just slip it into the case, and give it a simple snap and click! It will stay on when you open and close your MacBook, allow access to all ports, and provide proper ventilation so your MacBook doesn’t overheat!

 

You can settle for a hard shell case, or a sleeve of some kind, but those may only help protect from scratches and splashes. Zippered sleeves can get left behind. Clip-on shells pop-off off at the first hint of trouble and don’t always offer adequate protection. Any decent drop can crack the screen or casing, or damage the insides (including the battery) – even with your MacBook covered in a hard shell or sleeve.

 

FYI: Apple’s warranty DOES NOT cover damage caused by accidents! If they see any damage on the outside, it will most likely void your warranty and you will have to pay for repair or replacement.

 

Never dropped, or banged up a laptop? You don’t have to be a klutz or walking disaster to worry about your computer hitting the ground or getting scratched up from regular use. You could simply be:

* Someone who uses their MacBook in the field and need something to protect it
* A student who carries their MacBook between home and class
* A commuter who knocks out some work with a MacBook on their lap
* An employee carrying their MacBook around the office and into meetings
* A teacher who stores MacBooks in a cart
* Someone who slips their MacBook into a briefcase or bag often

 

Whatever the situation, if you’re a mobile, on-the-go Mac user you should protect your new MacBook Pro with a DropTech case! And, if you are a bit of a klutz, then you shouldn’t need any further convincing to protect a computer that cost you over $1499.

 

The DropTech case for the new MacBook Pro will be available in a White/Blue color combination within the next couple months for only $69.95. Gumdrop Cases also offers a DropTech case to protect the 13-inch MacBook Air for $69.95 (fits models from 2013-present), which will begin shipping November 2017.

 

Special Offer: Gumdrop Cases is wrapping up a Kickstarter campaign for the new MacBook Pro 13″ and the MacBook Air 13″ and are offering cases for as low as $20. Head over to Kickstarter to support us and get one of our new cases for over 70% off, but hurry – there are only a limited number of cases available for $20 (USD).

Hong Kong – The leader in ultra thin case design, CAZE has announced its first hybrid bumper for iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, weighting just 11g. Constructed of aluminum and TPU, the DuEdge frame case offers a revolutionary stylish metal look for the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus. DuEdge thin bumper comes in 5 colors: Jet Black, Matte Black. Silver, Gold and Rose Gold. All the colors and metal finishing of DuEdge are tuned to complement the respective colors of iPhone 7. DuEdge has the same thickness as CAZE best selling ThinEdge bumper.

 

The DuEdge slim bumper is composed of an ultra-thin aluminum frame combining onto a soft frame bumper. With both soft and hard properties of aluminum and soft frame, the dual layer construction gives your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus reinforced bumper protection while maintaining a slim and sleek bumper style look and preserves the original beautiful design of the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus.

 

The inner TPU layer provides supreme durability and shock protection for your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, while the ultra-thin aluminum frame adds additional strength and rigidity to the case. Another function of the soft TPU layer is to act as a cushion to prevent any damage that might be caused by removing or attaching the case. And it provides shock absorbing protection to all four sides and extends this protection to the front and the back of your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus.

 

The CAZE DuEdge Hybrid case is made to be as thin as possible without sacrificing protection, and made to perfectly follow the contours of your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus so it still has the original appearance. It comes with a two-tone color combination that let you personalize your iPhone the way you like. The colors are finished at high standard with a UV coating that makes the bumper stay great for a long time.

 

The hybrid bumper is designed to improve the operational performance of iPhone 7/7 Plus. It features sensitive metalized buttons using the same material and color as the frame to improve performance of the volume control and power button. To facilitate signal reception, the bumper is designed smartly to expose the antenna.

 

To protect your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus camera lens, an innovative lip on the edge of the frame is built to prevent the protruding camera from contacting with surfaces. Without the need of using Tools or screws, the flexible bumper design makes it easy to install by just snap on to your device.

 

To ensure all-around protection, the DuEdge hybrid bumper for iPhone 7/7 Plus comes with a free screen protection kit (front & back film) for added shield. Aside from the ultra slim bumper and screen protection kit, it also comes with a microfiber cloth and a wallet size iPhone stand.

CAZE introduces new Zero 5 Case for Jet Black iPhone 7/7 Plus

Hong Kong – CAZE, the leader in ultra slim case, has announced Zero 5 case for iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, one of the world’s thinnest clear hard cases, measuring just 0.5 millimeters. CAZE has been producing and improving the Zero 5 since the iPhone 3 release. CAZE is the first phone case maker to introduce TR-90 Memory Plastic, manufactured as a highly transparent and unbreakable hard case. The transparent and smooth finish hard case is the best companion for the new Jet Black and Matte Black colors of the iPhone 7.

 

The Zero 5 is a case for ultra minimalists. It is so clear and thin, the full beauty of the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus can been seen clearly without obscuring its sleek profile and the beautiful finish of Apple’s design. Its slim, one-piece design shields your phone from scratches without adding any bulk to your iPhone 7. Zero 5 comes with a free crystal clear screen protector and a wallet size stand for iPhone 7.

 

Living up to its name, the Zero 5 is just 0.5mm thick. The market has been flooded with cheap, inferior plastic cases, claiming they are 0.3mm or 0.4mm thick. However, all of those 0.3/0.4mm cases are made of PP material which is matte translucent in nature. Unlike those PP thin cases, Zero 5 is made of TR-90 plastic polymer which is highly transparent, remarkably tough, highly flexible, shatterproof and highly resistant to UV damage. Besides its super slim body that measures only 0.5mm in thickness, Zero 5 is lightweight and durable and offers comprehensive protection to your iPhone. It has complete access to all the main ports and buttons of the new iPhone 7. Charging has also never been easy since you do not have to remove the case.

 

The weight of Zero 5 is just 6 grams so you can barely notice the change of the thickness and weight after putting on such as a slim case on your iPhone 7. Zero 5 protects the sides of the iPhone by protruding slightly above the front screen. The camera hole is specially engineered to prevent the new camera on the back from touching a flat surface when laid down. To provide further protection to your iPhone 7, a front screen film is provided.

 

Zero 5 can fully show off more of the new iPhone design and colors (Jet Black and Matte Black) with the minimal case design while protecting your iPhone 7/7 Plus from shocks and impacts. Aside from the clear hard case, you will get a front screen protector, a microfiber cloth and a wallet size iPhone stand.

CAZE announces ThinEdge slim bumper case for iPhone 7/7 Plus (Jet Black)

Hong Kong – CAZE, the leader in ultra thin case, has announced its new ThinEdge bumper for iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, one of the world’s slimmest frame case, measuring just 0.8mm. Constructed of lightweight, hard-shell plastic, ThinEdge frame case offers sleek and stylish protection for the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus and comes with two different colored fasteners for you to personalize your iPhone.

 

Besides balancing between case-minimalism and protection, CAZE chose a new black color to match with the shiny Jet Black and matte Black of iPhone 7. Also, its fully transparent edition would let your iPhone 7 be seen clearly without obscuring the sleek profile and beauty finish of Apple’s design.

 

ThineEdge adds less than a millimeter in thickness to the sides of the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus. It fits tightly around the edges of the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus and protects its screen and back by protruding slightly above the front screen glass & aluminum back. The result leaves the back and front of the iPhone 5 fully exposed visually, but shielded against scratches and the rear camera(s) would not be in touch with the flat surface.

 

ThinEdge is made of GRILAMID(R) TR-90 so it is lightweight, tough, flexible, shatterproof and resistant to UV damage. Each frame case comes with two different colored fasteners for personalizing the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus.

 

The weight of ThinEdge is just 5 grams so you can barely notice the change of the thickness and weight after putting on such as a slim case on your iPhone 7/ 7 Plus. ThineEdge is easy to install. Its anti-slip property gives the iPhone 7/ 7 Plus more grip on surfaces. Easy access to all phone functions without having to remove the case. It has complete access to all the main ports and buttons of the device. Charging has also never been easy since you do not have to remove the case.

 

To ensure all-around protection, the ThinEdge comes with a free screen protection kit (front & back film) for added shield. Colors obtainable for now are Black, Silver and Clear. Aside from the ultra slim bumper, you will get a set of front & back crystal clear screen protectors, a microfiber cloth and a wallet size iPhone stand.
