First Two Custom-Fitted MacBook Air Cases From WaterField Designs

First Available, Custom-Fitted Cases for Apple 11.6" and 13.3" MacBook Air: Made in USA, WaterField Design's SleeveCase and Suede Jacket Sleeve

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) -  WaterField Designs, a San Francisco manufacturer of custom-fitted computer cases and bags, introduces two new laptop SleeveCases and Suede Jacket Sleeves made specifically for Apple's just-announced MacBook Air 11.6 inch and 13.3 inch notebooks. Manufactured locally in San Francisco, these stylish, custom-fitted and protective Macbook Air cases will begin shipping by October 29.

The form-fitted SleeveCase combines a nearly indestructible ballistic nylon shell with a high-grade neoprene interior to absorb shock and cushion the MacBook Air against bumps and bruises. Users can customize the SleeveCase to suit their individual needs -- choosing either a horizontal or vertical orientation with an optional padded front flap, shoulder strap, and/or Piggyback accessories pouch. Trim options include a new distressed brown leather option or the classic eye-catching grey-checkered Indium. Toss the SleeveCase into another bag or sling it over your shoulder to travel light.

Those interested in an ultra-lightweight yet protective case can opt for a Suede Jacket Sleeve, now available in snug, custom-fitted sizes for each of the new MacBook Air models. The Suede Jacket Sleeve, made from 100% scratch-free Ultrasuede®, can double as a screen cleaner for this and other electronic devices. Two loops on either side plus a loop at the bottom aid in the insertion and removal of the MacBook Air. Neoprene padding lines the bottom of the Sleeve thus protecting the most exposed area of the device. It's a classy tuxedo for the MacBook Air.

"Our new custom-fitted cases help accentuate the portability of the MacBook Air," explained Gary Waterfield, Chief Designer. "They're compact, they stow easily, and they're highly protective. And, the distressed leather trim option is just gorgeous."
