San Francisco, California – WaterField Designs, a leading San Francisco manufacturer of custom-fitted laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, is pleased to announce a re-design of its popular HardCase 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 an even 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 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 gently suspends the briefcase making it feel lighter.
“Functionally, the HardCase is an amazing laptop case,” noted 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.”
