WaterField Designs Introduces The CitySlicker™, a Slim, Modern Case for the MacBook Air

The Compact CitySlicker Provides 3-Layer Protection for the Apple MacBook Air Without Adding Bulk

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 15, 2012) - WaterField Designs, an innovative leader in custom laptop sleeves, and designer bags and cases for digital gear, introduces the CitySlicker™, an urban MacBook Air case with an old-world spin that uses modern materials to provide the utmost protection. Designed to enhance the Air's lightness without adding bulk, the CitySlicker is compact, even with accessories. WaterField's thoughtful design combines three layers of protection using impact-resistant plastic, high-grade neoprene, and a padded liner to keep the Air safe from unexpected dings.

"The MacBook Air is unbelievably thin, and we wanted to enhance that look rather than detract from it," explained Gary Waterfield, company founder. "The challenge was to design something sleek with hard-case protection, while keeping it compact, and to create a look that works on weekdays as well as weekends. We added a rugged, distressed leather flap to complete the 'old-world meets modern' look we were after."

The CitySlickerMacBook Air Case combines sturdy ballistic nylon with a distressed, leather flap that snaps into place, giving the ultra-modern case its old-world twist. The flap covers an accessory nook with four stretchy pockets to keep items snugly in place. A back, semi-opaque pocket with a self-locking zipper stows thin items or accessories. Opt to tuck it under an arm, or to add a handle, a strap, or both. Available exclusively at in four colors: black, chocolate, grizzly and camel.
